The slave cylinder is probably bad,it is part of the throw out bearing with is on the trans output shaft,you need to remove the trans to change it,,,,its a big job,,,,can not do this at home,take it to a shop,if the slave cylinder is bad it usually leaks out by the trans onto the ground,or you have a worn out clutch,either one needs the trans removed

My clutch wont engage gears on my 98 corrola at low speed or at idle. I also cannot change gear. This has only just started. Can you tell me what the problem is?

Could be the clutch master or slave cylinder, or the clutch disc. The disc is not disengaging from the flywheel.

I just bought a 2004 hyundai accent with 165xxx the guy i bought it from said he just replaced the clutch but how true that is idk the clutch is very spongy and has almost no pressure and the gear engages...

Try bleeding the clutch slave cylinder as it may be air in the system form being removed to do the clutch repair Soft clutches slip and go nowhere Check by putting it in gear with the a foot hard on the brakes and letting out the clutch. If the engines dies immediately the clutch will be good

Have freelander td4 03 plate, continuous problem with clutch. had new clutch , slave cylinder and master 2 months ago, all fine till a month ago lost pedal completely , had new master fittted problem fixed...

Definitely a hydraulic issue. Iknow you said they were both changed, but its usually the master & slave assembly that go faulty on the Freelander. Both parts come filled with fluid and pre-bled and only require fitting, no bleeding. Check with garage to make sure they did not split / bleed them.

Clutch calibration on a manual shift 2004 Mazda3

i'm not sure what you mean, "calibrating the clutch". Is the pedal sinking to the floor or not engaging the clutch well? If it seems spongy, there may be air in the line and it will need to be bled. If it does not engage well at all, check your clutch master cylinder for proper level of fluid in the reservoir or any fluid leaking out, the hose for leaks and the slave cylinder for any leaks. If they are, then whatever part was bad will need replacement.

Hope this is a little help,

The clutch is not engaging when pushed. ALthough

Does your clutch feel soft or spongy ? Not sure if it would have a slave cylinder on that model or not ? if so there should be a reservoir under the hood for fluid, check and see, if so add some brake fluid and see if that works. Could also be a bent fork which has come off the throw out bearing.
