Ford transit 52 plate clutch pedal goes soft then csnt change gear then pump pedal pedal goes back to normal drive for a short while then clutch pedal goes soft again and just repeats as above just bought...

The clutch hydraulic system has a problem-either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the bell housing may be at fault.

If the brake fluid is low in the clutch master cylinder reservoir, there may be a leak to the outside. Refill and check for leaks while someone pumps the clutch pedal. Check around the clutch master cylinder (also under the dash- if wet there around the top of the clutch pedal or if wet on the carpet below the pedal, the master cylinder is leaking.) Check the single line from the clutch master to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is. If no leaks found, likely the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder has failed internally.

Is it safe: there won't be any further damage caused by running it, but if shifting gets harder and harder to do, that may cause a driveability problem.

Clutch pedal is to low

I Push my clutch down and has no resistance, i also cannot get the car in and out of gear. I drive a 1995 3000gt SL.

the clutch is hydraulic . you need to look on the fire wall for a reservoir . and fill it look on the cap it will tell you what fluid to use . after you refill it pump the clutch a few times the wait 5 minutes and pump it again . check the fluid again pump again if the fluid is leaking out you'll have this trouble again till you fix the leak.

If i dont pump the clutch a few times it is very hard to shift and the pedal goes clear to the floor until i pump it a couple of times

It is likely you have drawn air into the system. Check the clutch reservoir and refill if needed. Use DOT 3 or 4 brake fluid. Bleed the system to restore clutch pedal. Check the clutch slave cylinder for leaks. If leaking, the slave cylinder will need to be replaced and the system bled again. Please let me know if you have questions.
