Hi:
You need to check the fluid level in your clutch master cylinder. If it is low or empty, check for where the leak is. The clutch slave cylinder is mounted to the side of the transmission. You can try bleeding the system too, but most likely one of the two cylinders has failed internally, and needs replaced

Ford transit 52 plate clutch pedal goes soft then csnt change gear then pump pedal pedal goes back to normal drive for a short while then clutch pedal goes soft again and just repeats as above just bought...


The clutch hydraulic system has a problem-either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the bell housing may be at fault.

If the brake fluid is low in the clutch master cylinder reservoir, there may be a leak to the outside. Refill and check for leaks while someone pumps the clutch pedal. Check around the clutch master cylinder (also under the dash- if wet there around the top of the clutch pedal or if wet on the carpet below the pedal, the master cylinder is leaking.) Check the single line from the clutch master to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is. If no leaks found, likely the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder has failed internally.

Is it safe: there won't be any further damage caused by running it, but if shifting gets harder and harder to do, that may cause a driveability problem.

check for a leaking clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder. that will cause the problems you describe. If the fluid is low in the master cylinder, its one or the other!

2001 maxima 5sp won't go in gear when car started


There is a black hose with a metal like hose attach on each end, right above you manual gear box. It can be seen a little from above but better from under neath the car engine on the right hand side. check to see if the hose look wet from oil like substance, if thats the case you found the problem. If not check your "Master cylinder or Slave cylinder mite be back. I have the same problem, when the fluid leaks the clutch is unable to build the pressure needed to out the car into a gear. Hope this helps. (>:

2001 dodge caravan wont move in any gear


Check your transmission fluid.You could have a leak. Your clutch could have gone out or possibly your transmission. At any rate you should have your caravan towed to the nearest transmission shop and have them check it out

My 2001 grand marquis hestitates and shutters slighty when downshifting from 4th to 3rd gear, shutting off overdrive eliminates problem


The first thing to do here is to have the transmission fluid changed, the shudder is torque converter clutch chatter, just like a burned clutch in a manual transmission car. The new fluid renews the anti friction additives and in most cases eleiminates the problem, have the transmission flushed so all fluid is replaced.

Hard to shift gears from shifter. Can go to transmission and shift easily.


loose or mis adjusted shifter cable to your transmission. usually, they break. stretched shifter cable? possible. manual transmission? did not specify. automatic? suggest cable problem,loose cable at some point,look with 2 people to see where the cables jumping during the shifting process. manual? suugest a bad or going bad slave cylinder on the side of the transmission,or low fluid to the clutch master cylinder.is the clutch pedal weak? or just goes to floor and will not come back up? this is sign of leaking clutch master cylinder,bad clutch master cylinder. or both. see brake fluid on ground under the car after you pump the clutch several times? either a bad clutch master cylinder,on the firewall,drivers side,just under the windsheild,or a bad slave cylinder on the side on the transmission under the car on the transmission. suggest that you look for fluid leakage. follow the trail of fluid to the source.

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.
