I have a 1996 Nissan Pulsar Q manual with clutch issues. I had both the clutch and the gear box replaced in 2013.


I suspect it has a hydraulic clutch - some hydraulic clutches share the brake reservoir for fluid. It sounds like there is a leak in the hydraulics for the clutch or the piston in the master cylinder for the clutch is allowing fluid to leak past it. Has the fluid in the brake reservoir been going down?
You may want to check the repair manual (buy a Haynes or Chilton at an auto parts store, or check your local library) to confirm what type clutch you have and the location of the components.

Why is the clutch on the floor


Clutch "on the floor" is rather unusual... Most of all clutch spring is the feel of the pressure plate holding the clutch disc against the flywheel... but there is typically a pedal return spring that will take out the slack before ANY pressure is applied to your throw-out bearing.

Clutch MALFUNCTIONS will affect gear engagement... excepting (of course) clutch slippage.

For this trouble you need to take a quick look under the dash at the pedal hangers... and piston plunger that activates the clutch cylinder (typically on the outside of your firewall).

Now look at the clutch MASTER cylinder... the connecting HOSE and the SLAVE cylinder. Any fluid TROUBLE IS THE KEY to your trouble.

The ideal TROUBLE would be a split hose... but compared to a FULL CLUTCH rebuild all of these parts are cheap and easy to replace. Typically only requiring bleeding the cylinders... and you are back on the road.

If everything looks good you are MOST PROBABLY going to need a new clutch master, slave, hose and appropriate hydraulic fluid.

BUT if you have NOT found that TELL-TALE hydraulic fluid... you had better have an ASSISTANT operate the clutch pedal while you determine were that MALFUNCTION is located.

If the pedal is working the clutch lever on the transmission... you are looking at a SERIOUS clutch rebuild.

ALWAYS REMEMBER to work on level ground, chock your wheels and use good jack stands... like your life depends on it... before getting under ANY CAR... It does!

Good luck and here's a wish for a cracked HYDRAULIC HOSE...!!

I am having a random problem on my toyota rav4 2003. When I come to a complete stop, it is very hard sometime to switch from the first to the second and the second to third gear. But on third gear, it runs...


Sound like a worn bushing or a synchronizer, How does the clutch pedal feel like, does it feel spongy? Try this with the vehicle off not steping on the clutch can you run it in gears? is it smooth? Now with the engine running step on the clutch do you have to push effort so much?For first the car must be in a complete stop. the sychronizer wont allow you in gear.2nd gear is a differnt story it will allow you in gear easily wheather rolling slowly foward or a complete stop. Take a look at you clutch hydraulic fluid level before you drive off pump the clutch and see if that eases the problem if it does then you are looking at a clutch hydraulic problem.If no change is felt a new clutch assemble with a hydraulic slave cyclinder will be in the work for the Rav4 (why I say this the pilot bearing tend to binds)

I was told the clutch on my 2003 mazda protege is hydrolic....how do I go about adjusting it


The whole idea behind the Hydralic Clutch is there is no adjustment.If the clutch is slipping then you need a new one.If you are having trouble getting it into gear then you may have a bad clutch master and or slave cylinder.Let me know if i can help.

The clutch fluid is leaking on my truck and it won't go into gear right.


You need to fix the Leak in your hydraulic system to your clutch on your transmission. The reason that your transmission is not going  in to gear right is that the fluid is to low to push the throw out bearing to disengage the clutch fully. 
Once the fluid get's too low, you'll not be able to disengage the clutch to put it in to gear or change gear.
Check the fluid level to your hydraulic clutch reservoir and fill to the right level and fix the leak in the hydraulic lines.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, glad to help.

My clutch pedal has no resistance and I can't shift gears...


If you have a hydraulic clutch, it is conceivable that the fluid has leaked out. For areas of leakage check up under the dash where the clutch master comes through the firewall., or check down at the transmission at the clutch slave, which is the small cylinder on the transmission. You should also fill the reservoir immediately as well.

If yours is the adjustable type of clutch, then you need to have it ajusted immediately

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.
