Question about Nissan 200SX

1 Answer

Nissan 200SX. Clutch clicking once each time when pushed in, then suddenly went in and stayed in. No more clutch. If I pull the pedal back out (by hand), it comes out half way then springs out. If I then push it in again, it goes half way in then springs in (to the floor) and stays there. Hydraulic clutch, and the fluid is at the correct level. Can you tell me please what the problem might be? Thanks for your help.

    Turned out to be the pivot pin that the end of the clutch master cylinder push rod pivots on. Up under the dash, at the top of the clutch pedal. Found the pin on the floor. Needed a retainer pin through a hole in the end of it - shaped a bit like a hairpin. Don't know where that went.

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.

`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

My son was driving his 1997 Nissan Sentra to work. As he was shifting he heard a pop and the clutch pedal went to the floor. You can pull the pedal out, and it will stay out. If you push it will stay

Check to see if the cable on the gearbox moves and check the pedal under the dash to see if any cable is attached to the pedal still, it will be and easy find, good luck

1998 Nissan 200sx new clutch slips when hot

The cable is probably too tight,andnot allowing the pressure plate to use all of its clamping force. This will also wear out the new release bearing.

I have a 98 Nissan200sx 1.6l jst put a new clutch in and now the clutch padel gos to the floor n stays there. I was told maybe a new clutch cable would fix it but same thing I didnt put the pilot bushing...

The pilot bearing is the input bushing,this has nothing to do with the cable going to the floor and staying there,The clutch calbe is adjustable . You adjust it by pulling on the cable and leave a 1/4 freeplay your problem is you need to adjust the cable3_26_2012_4_14_57_am.jpg

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?

on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

I have a 1993 nissan pickup with manual question is how do i bleed clutch fluid and fill transmission fluid?

on the side of the gearbox is a filler plug about halfway up,then fill with EP90 ,bleeding clutch isnt a problem just do it like the brakes ,assistant inside to push and hold pedal down slacken bleed nipple ,then tighten and assistant lets clutch pedal up wait 5 seconds then repeat ,if its really obstinate then using a bar pushed into the slot for the clutch arm pull the slave cylinder right in and then bleed a few pumps and then pull bar out and try pumping the pedal and see what happens

Clutch pedal stuck up

You have to replace the Slave Cyl. when you put on the new one you have to bleed it ..To get the air out of the new line.

Sudden clutch failure

Sounds like you have a leak .... a bad master/ slave cylinder .... that car has a hydraulic clutch system you may see oil dripping, much cheaper than a new clutch ... pumping it may help shift until it empties out entirely ... check the reservoir ...
