It is most likely a hydraulic clutch, and it is most likely leaking at the clutch slave cylinder. Check the clutch master cylinder for fluid, it should be a small master cylinder looking thing with a fill cap next to the brake master cylinder and booster unit. If it is empty fill it with the same dot 3 brake fluid that you use for your brake master cylinder, and make sure that you are pouring the fluid into the clutch master cylinder reservoir and not the rubber seal that should be under the fill cap. After filling the clutch master cylinder up with fluid, then try and pump up the clutch pedal. It might take a while to pump up hydraulic pressure, and you might also have to work the pedal a few times by hand at first.

Also, you might have to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder if it will not build up enough pressure to release the clutch.

Check to see if you have fluid first
if it does then pull on your clutch pedal and pump it for a while until you have pressure or have someone help you bleed the clutch slave

I have a 2002 Hyundai elantra my clutch is stuck wat do I do

Stuck? Do you mean the clutch pedal is sitting on the floor and won't come up?If so, pull the pedal up with your hand and check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder as it may be low/empty and fill as required with brake fluid. You may have to bleed the system in order to get the clutch working properly again

After sitting for 10 days, clutch is stuck. at first it depressed to the floor and stuck. then I pulled it back, now it won't depress.

check all the linkage to the pedal, if it looks good you will need to pull the trans to check the clutch assembly and through out bearing and the sleeve it rides on

1996 nissan maxima clutch squeals pedal stuck to floor

Sound like you're going to need a whole new clutch assembly, but if the fluid level was dry you may have sucked air into the system which means that the clutch will have to be bled at the slave cylinder, just like you would brakes. The squealing sound is coming from the throw out bearing, usually when the do that it means that the bearing is frozen and cannot spin. Either way it looks like you'll be dropping the transmission to work on the clutch.

My 1990 hyundai excel has been sitting for 3 years. It started fine, but the hydrolic clutch pedal seems to be stuck in the up position. I don't recall having problems with the clutch when I was...

Add brake fluid to the reservoir and try pumping the pedal by hand it may get stuck to the floor, then look for any leaks in the line to the tranny, if it is stuck up try starting it in gear and shut it off immediately! Cuz it will try and take off be sure to block the wheels and set the brake, this may help free the slave cylinder from the shaft please rate

Clutch no pressure

replace the clutch slave and master cylinder,this is a hard one to bleed, may have to pry clutch arm all the way in so slave piston is all the way back to not be able to hold air, once all air is out you may have to pump pedal maany times let it sit then pump pedal again you will see pedal getting better and better, good luck.

Clutch pedal stays on floor when released

check the helper spring on the clutch pedal. You'll have to get down in the driver's footwell and using a flashlight look at the mechanism while you push the pedal down (and pull up). If the spring isn't missing or broken and everything looks okay, then change the clutch master cylinder. The piston in the cylinder is probably binding due to corrosion in the bore. I have an 1986 and had the same problem. Changing the clutch master cylinder fixed it.
