Your car has a hydraulic clutch. Check that the master cylinder reservoir is full and then try bleeding the clutch. (The bleeder point is on the slave cylinder on the bell housing). If it bleeds and regains function fine, but if it does not you will have to have the master cylinder , overhauled, reworked or replaced. Also check the slave cylinder for leaks if your reservoir is empty. (It might be a good idea to have the slave cylinder seen to as well).

Replacing and bleeding of clutch slave cylinder


If it goes to the floor you have either blown out slave cylinder or master cylinder, no two ways about that.

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.

Clutch goes to the floor


You will have to be more specific in order to get help on this site .... does the clutch go to the floor randomly without pushing it with your foot? Does it just go to the floor when you press it with your foot? If the last is yes then does the transmission disengage when the clutch goes to the floor as it should or does something else happen? Normally you would want your clutch to go to the floor ... see where I'm going with this?

After changing transmission and clutch in 91 Wrangler, clutch goes to floor. Tried bleeding line but didn't work.


The clutch should go to the floor =) But if it's not disengaging the clutch disk, there's definitely a problem between the pedal and the clutch disk. I'm guessing you have a hydraulic clutch?

Clutch goes to the floor like it is not connected. what could be the problem


The actuator rod/cable could have slipped off or come free or there is a problem with your Clutch assembly as a whole. There are normally adjustments that can be made to these. Get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle and follow the clutch adjustment steps.

Clutch goes all the way down to the floor, unable ...


Does the clutch pedal offer any resistance? The clutch and brake system use the same reservoir, there is a hose coming out from the side of the reservoir that goes over to the clutch master cylinder. Sometimes the brake fluid level goes low as brake pads wear and lowers the fluid level too low to work the clutch. On the front side of the transmission, is a clutch slave cylinder, check it for leaks, if it leaks replace it. Hope this helps, let me know.

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!
