If your clutch is hydraulic, check your fluid level. If it's low, add some brake fluid and see if your pedal play returns.

My Nissan 95 sentra clutch had crunched and pedal would not spring back, found that clutch cable had snapped, replaced this and now my clutch pedal is still not 100% springing back, it springs back en


Check the spring to see if it has snapped anywhere within it's coil.

Remove the cable and check operation of the pedal and spring mechanism.
If all is well, then with a lever, check that the clutch release arm on the gearbox is operational. If that is also sticking, then you will have to remove the gearbox to investigate further.
If not sticking, then also remove the clutch cable outer sleeve, and replace.

Wont go into any gear after installing a new clutch kit


Either it was not installed properly or... your clutch linkage (cable) is stuck or too tight and not releasing the clutch all of the way.


Disconnect the clutch cable/rod from the clutch arm and see if you can move it or if when you remove it does it goes back further with the spring i.e. not seated with the linkage in place...? (you should feel the spring action of the clutch on the plate)
if it does spring back further the cable/rod linkage needs to be adjusted
Otherwise take it apart and reinstall. Also check the clutch pedal to make sure it did not become misalligned while it was diconnected.

My 97 Trans Am clutch pedal stays on the floor and must be returned by slipping my toe under the pedal and flipping it back up. The clutch is a Valeo style (all LT1 engines with manual trans used this...


Have you checked the pedal spring?
Most cars but not all have a pedal hanger spring, this keeps the pedal up and off the floor even if not connected to anything.
These springs do break and when they do the symptoms you report are the outcome.
If you get on the floor and look up at your pedal hangers, and with your free hand check the pedal operation/swing. If your vehicle has this spring you will see it as you look up, if the spring is broken it is a simple job to replace it.

Some vehicle have a spring like this:

While driving on the road upon changing gears the clutch pedal sticks to the floor


try greasing or replacing the fulcrum of the pedal shaft. this may have got corroded inside which makes it difficult for the pedal shaft to return to its original position by the action of the return spring.

Volvo S40 :clutch pedal spring


The spring broke on my S40 clutch pedal too.
The old spring looks like a modified volvo part since none of the S40 clutch pedal springs at Volvo spares looks exactly the same as the one that broke. The one that broke looks similar to the replacement part that I bought, but one can clearly see that the old one was cut shorter at the other end and bent over to make it fit onto the clutch pedal mechanism. This is absolutely pathetic. I am taking it to Volvo to fix their rubbish themselves - and then they are still going to charge me R750 ($100) to replace a stupid spring! By the way, Volvo always wants the vehicle VIN number when buying spares because some of their cars (of the same year and model) use different parts - CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS! By the way, I am replacing the spring to pull the pedal all the way back - otherwise if I start the car in the mornings then the pedal is nearly on the floor when the car starts moving. If I pull the pedal back with my foot , then all is back to normal. I am scared that I may have no clutch after some time - so I will rather replace it.

Clutch went to floor like nuthing was attached to it... runs fine just seems that the clutch pedal dont work or something it just floppy now...it happened when i was moving it in driveway was fine before...


There is a return spring that lifts the clutch pedal back to the original position. It seems that the clutch return spring has got disconnected. The pedal will do its job of disengaging the engine from the gear box, but will not offer any resistance to the foot and thus give an impression of doing nothing. So, that spring should be set right. For this the clutch housing will have to be opened and the spring reset.

2000 accent clutch is soft


There is a bearing that presses on flat springs of the clutch plate and slides back and forth on a hollow tube when you press the pedal. These can get fouled with road crud and then hang now and then when you press the pedal and perhaps not fully disengage the clutch as it should producing either a stiff action or even worse, the gnashing of gear teeth. Some bell housings have inspection plates that can provide enough access to use some cleaner/lubricant on the hollow shaft on which the 'throwout' bearing must slide.
