First, try bleeding it. Put a 2 foot peice of vacuum hose on the slave cylinder bleeder screw. Loosen the bleeder screw. Put the other end of the hose into a clear bottle or brake/clutch fluid. ( have the bottle about half full). Now, have someone pump the clutch by hand while you watch for bubbles in the bottle. When it stops bubbling, you have all the air out, and you can tighten the bleeder, and remove the hose, and refill the reservoir.
If it won't bubble, and no fluid comes out, your master cylinder needs replacing.
( P.S. - The slave cylinder is down under the truck. It's what pushes the clutch rod.)

Sounds like you have a bad slave cylinder, slave master, or maybe air in the line.

1990 nissan pickup will not stsrt untille preeing the clutch interlock switch on dash,then start up.


try pressing the clutch pedal down at different heights and see if it will start, if so then you will need to adjust the linkages to the clutch pedal. if it still won't start, then you will need to replace the neutral safety switch.

Clutch does not slip but when clutch pedal is pressed down does not let clutch release. how much travel should the slave cylinder have and is there any adjustments i can try.


Since your clutch is operated by hydraulic pressure, there is no adjustment. If pushing in the clutch pedal doesn't release the clutch, then the most common cause is either air in the system or the master or slave has failed. If the clutch is the original factory one then it is possible that the clutch itself has worn.

1987 nissan pickup- clutch worked fine one day, next time the pedal went almost to the floor with no resistance, I had about 1" distance from the floor to disengage the clutch. checked the master cylinder...


sounds like your clutch master cylinder or slave is no good. do your self a favor and replace them both if you are going to be replacing them.

My 1990 Toyota pickup: normally to start it you press the clutch all the way in while turning the key. Now this is not working. The last time it did start when I pressed the clutch in there was the sound...


Push the clutch down while you are looking at the switch, it is right at the top of the clutch pedal. My bet is that there is a gap and the pedal is not engaging the switch. The sheet metal on the fire wall probably gave way. Check it out, then you can reinforce the firewall that the clutch safety switch is mounted on. Good luck. I just had this happen tonight. Much quicker then tracing wires.
