The cable may need to be replaced or adjusted. Or if it is a hydraulic clutch check the master and slave cylinders for leaks or defects. If you have a cable clutch you will see the cable on the drivers side firewall and you can follow it down to the fork at the transmission.

    Yeah, all 240's have a hydraulic clutch. Without a single doubt in my mind, I would say that your slave cylinder is out. Cheap repair. It's located on the bottom of the transmission. Replace with a new one and have a buddy help you bleed the line and you are good to go.

1998 Honda Civic manual trans will not shift into gears. Car starts, push in clutch and it goes to the floor, release clutch and comes back up. Unable to put into gears. Brake fluid and clutch fluid seem...


Eric, how are you confirming whether or not the car goes into gear if you shift gears without the engine running? One way would be to put it in 1st and see if you can push the car. If you can't, it is in gear.

Another option is to roll the car slightly forward or backward (engine off) while trying to put the car in gear. Once it is in gear, then the car shouldn't move any further. However, if it goes into gear, DO NOT start the car without taking it back out of gear.

The clutch is much more likely to be the problem than the transmission.

If the clutch fluid ever ran dry, then the clutch hydraulics will need to be bled of air. Otherwise, the problem could be the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder or throwout bearing. Since you didn't report the clutch slipping (e.g. engine revving without accelerating when in gear) it is likely not the clutch disks themselves.

Clutch pedal sticks to the floor; the brake reservoir was low


I believe your pressure plate is broken and at a minimum will have to be replaced along with the clutch disk.

Clutch goes to floor


There are four main things that can go wrong in a hydraulic clutch system, causing this condition. In order of DIY-friendliness: 1. Just bleed the system could be enough provided there are no significant leaks. Check out this for a procedure suggestion: http://www.motorvate.ca/mvp.php/803 2. Check for leaking hoses, tubes and connection in this hydraulic circuit. Rust could be an issue, also cracking old hydraulic hoses. Not that hard to replace faulty components usually but it depends. 3. The main cylinder for the clutch system is leaking and needs to be replaced. Don't know how hard it is on your car but this is mostly a rather painless procedure. 4. The slave cylinder is leaking. On some cars it can be a real pain to replace as you have to take the transmission out, no fun at all on Saab 9000 for instance. On other cars the slave cylinder is more accessible and rather easy to replace. You should not drive this car at all until you at least made step 1 here, bleeding the system making sure it works. The car is basically inoperable without clutch. If the problem comes back, you have to proceed through the steps until you find and correct the problem. Good luck!

Nissan clutch problem


If your not able to shift into any gear that means your clutch is not engage/disengaging. Check for fluid leaks, you said topped off and fluid levels were low? It sounds like you have a Slave cylinder or master cylinder leak, if its leaking its bet to replace both.

My clutch goes straight to the floor, cant shift gears


The most likely cause of your problem is a hydraulic system problem. Your clutch system works off of hydraulic pressure and if there is a leak or it ran out of fluid it will cause the problem you have. The first thing to do is check the master cylinder to be sure that it is full of fluid. If it is not then you have a leak somewhere.
You could have a problem with either your master cylinder or slave cylinder.
