If with brakes, your fluid is low, this is usually an indication you need to replace the pads/shoes or you have another problem, possibly a leak, the same goes for hydralic clutch systems. You should never have to add brake or clutch fluid.

You can add fluid the the clutch master cylinder but if it is completely empty you will probably need to bleed the slave cylinder. You need to check for any leaks and also you might be on the verge of a clutch replacement. I cant see the car so I am giving you general info.

    What joemidjette said is quite valid. I once stored my 240 while overseas and returned to the states to find the pedal had fallen to the floor with no pressure and the reservoir appeared empty. After looking it over and pumping the pedal, a little bit of fluid returned to the reservoir and I added more to it while I bled the line at the slave cylinder.

New clutch installed. No pedal, stays on floor unless I bring it back up with my hand. No resistance.


`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.

How do I bleed a hydrolytic clutch on a 1989 Nissan d21 truck 4x4


There is a bleed valve on the slave cylinder that is on the transmission bell housing. Use an 8 or 10 mm wrench and loosen the valve, then snug it just hand tight. Now have someone depress the clutch pedal. As the pedal is depressed, loosen the bleeder and let air or fluid out. Close the valve as the pedal hits the floor, then repeat until a steady stream of brake fluid comes out of the bleeder as the clutch is depressed.

In many cases, the hydraulic clutch will gravity bleed when the bleeder valve is open. This is especially true if the fluid line from the clutch master cylinder (on the firewall) down to the slave cylinder is not bent up or around any objects, but is pretty much a straight drop down to the slave cylinder. If it won't gravity bleed by just opening the valve, have a helper work the clutch pedal as described. Remember to close the bleeder before letting the pedal up, so that air won't be sucked back in through the bleeder valve.

Clutch pedal goes almost to the floor before it engages


If your fluid was low (which is why you likely added some,) you may need to "bleed" your clutch master cylinder.

FORD FOCUS 05 CLUTCH GOES TO THE FLOOR BUT WILL NOT GO INTO ANY GEARS, CAN ANYONE HELP ON THIS ISSUE


When you press on the pedel is there preasure resisting movement? Is it easiser to push than last week? if it is - You probably have a hydrolic clutch is the resivor full of fluid? It will use brake fluid. Fill it and then slowly depress and release the pedal about ten times, then check the fluid again. If it still has fluid add as needed and repeat. Most of hydrolic clutches are self bleeding and thirty cycles should bring the preassure back. If the cylinder is empty the second time quit you have either a bad slave cylinder or line in yhe system take it to a mechanic.

How do you bleed the clutch on a 89 240sx


By transmission bell housing drivers side under car you will find the slave cylinder/ it will have a bleeder screw . fill the clutch master cylinder. and leave the cap off or very loos ,{with car up on proper jack stands} . open the bleeder until you git no more air coming out. you may have to fill the master a few times to git the air out {don't let it run out of fluid} if you can not git all the air out that way you may need a helper, to pump the pedal and hold it down wile you crack open the blender.be sure to tighten it before helper lets the pedal up. please let us know if this is helpful. feel free to ask should you want any more assistance. Thank You.

1993 240 nissan clutch pedal acts like it has no fluid


Check if the slave cylinder is being activated by the operation of the master cylinder (also ensure no fluid leaks are present).
If slave cylinder not moved, you still have a faulty master cylinder or slave cylinder - or the hydraulic system still has air.

If the slave cylinder is operating normally and there is still no return pressure from the clutch pressure plate, you have a faulty pressure plate or throughout lever mechanism.

Clutch fluid is leaking inside of the car 240sx


You need to rebuild the seals in the cluth master cylinder. The seal around the pedal shaft that actuates the clutch is leaking fluid past the seal and onto the shaft connected to the pedal, inside the cabin. 
A good parts store should be able to get you a seal rebuild kit, or remove the cylinder and bring it to a clutch shop or Nissan dealer and have them rebuild it for you. This is cheaper than dropping the car off and having them do all of the work. 
Dismantling the master cylinder, replacing the seals, filling the system with fresh fluid and bleeding it should solve your problem. Be sure to replace all of the seals at one time, and don't be tempted to only replace the one that is leaking at the moment. They should all be the same age to last without further leaking. Otherwise you'll be chasing a series of problems with your clutch as the other old seals fail over time.
Hope this helps.
