Hi, the likely problem is air in the hydraulic clutch line. This happens when there is a leak in the system that draws down fluid in the reservoir until air is drawn in. You must repair the leak and bleed the system to restore pedal pressure. The leak is usually in the slave cylinder at the transmission, but may also occur in the master cylinder above the pedal. If you can find your leak, I can provide repair instructions--just let me know.

2007 Scion TC Replaced Clutch Master Cylinder And Clutch Slave Cylinder Clutch Is On The Floor I Bleeded The lines And Still Clutch Doesn't Come Up Help Please

it is a two person operation so if you have been trying by yourself then get a friend to help
have him pump the clutch pedal a few times and hold down
you open the bleed screw at the slave cylinder to let air out .close off and get him to pump the pedal again .hold down while you again open the bleed screw
repeat this operation until thee is no air coming out and the clutch feels solid
it may help if before you do all this that you remove the pipe at the master cylinder and place your finger over the hole in the m/cyl and have him pump the pedal using you finger as a one way valve to let air out but shuts off to make the piston suck in new fluid
this primes the new master cylinder first
once you have solid fluid then connect up the pipe and proceed with the bleeding procedure.

If the pilot bearing was the problem it would make noise with the clutch pushed and go away when you let it out. Have you checked the fluid level in the transmission?

Clucht pedal stays down won`t come back up .And won`t go in any gear.Please help.Thank you.

look inside engine compartment above your master cylinder there is a little container grey in color with a black top with a hose attached to the bottom of it this is the slave unit resovoir for your clutch it is little smaller than a baby food jar if it is empty fill it with DOT3 brake fluid and close it then try pumping your clutch peddle if it has been dry to long and you drove it like that you may need to have your clutch checked Mine ran dry I filled it up and after a month ended up replacing the clutch and the slave unit that was a 1999 sunfiretghe total cost of a new slave unit and clutch was almost 1000.00 you may be lucky and the reservoir may just need to be refilled but i am just letting ytou know good luck re this

My brake light stays on after I turn off my 02 liberty. I have to pump the brake pedal and ussually works but lately it comes back on later draining my battery. I've used bungies to hold up the brake pedal...

The brake light switch is sticking look under the dash follow the brake pedal arm up and look for the switch you may be able to get away with spraying some electrical contact cleaner on the switch working the pedal down and up as you spray if this fails to work the switch should be replaced. Remove the plug and wire connection and the screws and adjustment nut that hold the switch in and make note of where the switch was located in relation to the brake pedal contact point, you must have the switch location adjusted in the right point of contact with the pedal for the new one to work right, when installing the new one keep adjusting its location until the desired effect is attained.

Clutch pedal stays on floor when released

check the helper spring on the clutch pedal. You'll have to get down in the driver's footwell and using a flashlight look at the mechanism while you push the pedal down (and pull up). If the spring isn't missing or broken and everything looks okay, then change the clutch master cylinder. The piston in the cylinder is probably binding due to corrosion in the bore. I have an 1986 and had the same problem. Changing the clutch master cylinder fixed it.

Clutch pedal stays down

Still have air in system.. Try this: Pull pedal up,fill reservoir to the top, open bleed nipple on slave cyl all the way,leave for a while to "gravity feed" keeping the reservoir full,& an eye on the nipple, until all bubbles are expelled and clean brakefluid drips out(could take a few minutes). Close the nipple, and bleed system as usual....
