You have a hydraulic clutch. It may be that the slave cylinder has been leaking and has run the reservoir dry thus allowing air into the system. Check the fluid level in the reservoir. If empty, look for leak at slave cylinder or elsewhere along the line from the master to the slave. Replace the slave cylinder or otherwise repair the leak, refill the reservoir and bleed the system. Any questions, please reply. I will paste diagram below.

Clutch pedal of my Sorento 2012 has become very stiff. It is specially very hard to drive in the traffic. Odo meter reading show 560000 km run as of today. what is the problem?


Get your head down on the driver's side floor and look at the clutch cable coming out of the firewall. Push the clutch pedal in and see where the resistance starts and where you start seeing the cable pulled. If it's more than a couple inches before the cable starts pulling, you need to adjust it.

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.

1988 chevy k2500 clutch pedal has no resistance


Your truck has a hydraulic clutch release system, you have a problem in it due to a leak in the slave or the master cylinder, The slave cylinder which is the one that leaks most often is inside the bell housing and it requires the ****** be removed to replace it.

Clutch pedal goes strait to the floor??clutch won't bleed up??


It has air bubbles on the piping, fill the deposit with brake solution, and push and pull the clutch pedal with your hand it doesn't matter if it goes straight to the floor if that happens pull it with your hand, repeat that as if you are bleeding it up, then disconnect the piping beneath the car, the air bubbles will be forced out, then reconnect the piping and repeat the procedure, push and pull the clutch pedal like a 100 times, then disconnect the piping and reconnect. The clutch pedal should be able to go back when there is no air on the piping. If that doesn't work, replace your clutch pump

No pressure clutch pedal goes straight to the floor 1988 holden r


If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.
