It sounds like its either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder thats causing the problem. This is generally a sign of that system failing. There are somethings you can do though First i would bleed the clutch and see if the problem persists if it does you need to diagnose if the master cylinder is bad. Second... make sure the master cylinder has the correct amount of fluid. If it does try this, If you have a bad master cylinder then you can do the following test with the help of an assistant. Have your assistant press down on the clutch while you look to see if the transmission fluid in the reservoir rises when the clutch is down and then rises again when the clutch is released. If it does then you may have a bad master cylinder. also feel under the master cylinder to see if there is oil if there is the seals may have gone bad and the unit will need to be changed. in my experience id go with the master cylinder, but it could happen with the slave as well. Usually if you change one you change both of them.
Its better that you had this problem now then no pressure when you are driving.

if you need further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. if this helped please feel free to rate the solution. Thanks - Midwest-tek

    well if you do it yourself the clutch master cylinder depending on the brand you buy ranges from 52$usd - 83$usd (priced on rock auto) and the slave cylinder is about 32$usd (priced on rock auto) now to get it changed at a shop it would run you about 400-600$ depending where you get it done Call a few places and get a price quote. if you need further assistance please let me know and i will assist you further. if this helped please feel free to rate the solution.

Sounds like you have a leak between the master cylinder (firewall) and the slave cylinder that's on the trans and you have air in the line. Look for leaking fluid and check the reservoir and fill. One of the cylinders needs replaced most likely. The parts don't cost a lot but the shop will tack on to it. Best to do it yourself and then bleed the clutch system by opening slave after someone pushes and holds clutch pedal, close then push pedal, hold, open slave, repeat until all of the air is out. You might try just bleeding the system but eventually you will want to repair the problem.

SOURCE: On my 1998 Nissan Maxima,

You don't need a clutch--probably just a slave cylinder. Check the clutch hydraulic reservoir--I bet it's empty. Should be near the brake reservoir on the firewall. Let me know if you would like instructions to do it yourself or if you have any other questions

The problem is that the slave cylinder is right next to the front head of the engine-heat, heat and more heat!!! I put a piece of aluminum angle to curb the heat and installed a fan to blow right at the slave cylinder-PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

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.

Clutch pedal has no pressure and goes straight to the floor when pressed. clutch disk is in good condition. parked the car the night before was working perfect. next morning no pressure and out of fluid....


Pump the clutch pedal and then check for leaks again, including under the dash where the rod from the pedal goes into the clutch master cylinder. Once you find the leak, replace what's leaking and bleed the system to restore the pressure (bleeds from the slave unit, just like bleeding brakes)

My clutch pedal is stuck to the floor??


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.

95 nissan maxima clutch pedal was stuck on the floor changed the slave cylinder still same problem also when i push the clutch down it makes a high pitched noise and idle drops a bit


Hi, this is a result of a bad throw out bearing pack and, this may have damaged the pressure plate as well.

I recommend taking this vehicle in , if possible, for a thorough repair on these two parts. they are vital to optimal clutch performance.

Please rate and have a great day:)

2006 nissan maxima clutch problems


I have the same problem with my '06. It must be a design problem of some sort for so many people to have the same issue. I think we should all call the dealerships' service departments so they can address it with Nissan tech reps. Then if Nissan doesn't come up with a 'fix' we advertise the problem somehow so Nissan loses customers or customer confidence.

You may have a problem with the check valve in the fuel pump, if this valve is defective the gas drains back to the fuel tank and causes long crank times, you can test this by hooking up a fuel pressure guage at the fuel injector fuel supply line on the top of the engine, run the engine for a moment and quickly record the pressure when you shut down, that pressure reading should not drop more than 5 PSI overnight, if the check valve is bad the pressure will most likely start to drop right away, but do the over night test anyway. If this is the problem you will need to replace the fuel pump in the gas tank.

Clutch


TRY BLEEDING THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM FOR THE CLUTCH, EASY, FILL CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER WITH DOT 3 BRAKE FLUID, FOLLOW LINES DOWN NEAR THE TRANS. WHERE CLUTCH PISTON MEETS ATTACH 1/4 CLEAR TUBING TO BLEEDER VALVE RUN HOSE UP TO A BOWL WITH 2" FLUID IN IT, HAVE SOMEONE PULL PEDAL OUT AND PUMP ON IT HOLDING PEDAL DOWN, RELEASE THE VALVE AND CLOSE IT, HAVE THE PERSON PULL OUT ON THE PEDAL AND PRESS IT DOWN AGAIN OPEN VALVE AND CLOSE IT , EVENTUALLY IT WILL BUILD PRESSURE AND GET ALL OF THAT PESKY AIR OUT OF THE SYSTEM, MAKE SURE THE MASTER CYLINDER DOESNT RUN OUT OF FLUID AND THAT THE TUBE DOESNT COME OUT OF THE BOWL OR YOU WILL HAVE TO START OVER, KEEP PUMPING UNTIL THE FLUID RUNS CLEAR WITH NO AIR BUBBLES THIS HAPPENED TO ME LAST WEEK AND NOW IM FIXED AND IT WORKED GREAT! I SUGGEST GETTING A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL IT REALLY WILL SAVE U ALOT OF MONEY IN THE LONG RUN.
