Changed clutch, master cylinder, slave cylinde, folk but still cannot get any clutch

You may still have air in the system
Try filling the reservoir again and bleed out the air at the slave cylinder
Use a friend to pump up the clutch pedal then get him to hold the pedal down while you bleed the slave cylinder.

Where is the clutch auto adjustment located at on a 98 manual Volkswagen jetta?

you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing

Cannot bleed 1988 ford p/u clutchmaster cylinder

you have to bench bleed. Here is a procedure from Let me know if this doesn't help.

Externally Mounted Slave Cylinder

  1. Clean the reservoir cap and the slave cylinder connection.
  2. Remove the slave cylinder from the housing.
  3. Using a 3 / 32 in. punch, drive out the pin that holds the tube in place.
  4. Remove the tube from the slave cylinder and place the end of the tube in a container.
  5. Hold the slave cylinder so that the connector port is at the highest point, by tipping it about 30° from horizontal. Fill the cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid through the port. It may be necessary to rock the cylinder or slightly depress the pushrod to expel all the air.
WARNING Pushing too hard on the pushrod will spurt fluid from the port!
  1. When all air is expelled (no more bubble are seen), install the slave cylinder.
Some fluid will be expelled during installation as the pushrod is depressed.
  1. Remove the reservoir cap. Some fluid will run out of the tube end into the container. Pour fluid into the reservoir until a steady stream of fluid runs out of the tube and the reservoir is filled. Quickly install the diaphragm and cap. The flow should stop.
  2. Connect the tube and install the pin. Check the fluid level.
  3. Check the clutch operation.

2001 mercury cougar, master cylinder ran dry because slave cylinder below is leaking at the firewall. I filled the master cylinder and tried bleeding the clutch at the transmission until fluid stream...

No, you don't need to replace the clutch itself.
Don't be surprised if the slave cylinder replacement doesn't fix it.
Could be the master cylinder.

Are the brake master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder interconnect in some way? I'm told that the slave cylinder get its fluid from the master cylinder.

The brake system and the clutch master cylinder have the same fluid tank, look at the brake master cylinder fluid tank, on the right hand side about half way up is a hose that goes over to the clutch master cylinder, if fluid level is not above this hose the clutch will stop functioning. If the clutch slave cylinder, mounted on the front side of transmission bellhousing, leaks then the clutch will stop functioning. The slave cylinder has a bleed screw, check these items and fill and bleed as neccessary. Hope this helps, let me know.

Clutch pedal goes to floor no preasure filled and bled slave cyl same result

If you have bled the system, you are down to either having a bad clutch master cylinder, or a bad clutch slave cylinder. You could eliminate the slave cylinder by removing the line and capping it off, and if you have a firm pressure on the clutch pedal ( don;'t try to push it down, just check for pressure!) then your slave cylinder is bad. If you cap off the line, and bleed the system, and the pedal still has no pressure, then your clutch master cylinder is bad!
