Why is my clutch feel like there is air in the line it seems to have alot of play.


Air in the hydraulic clutch release System. The system consists of the clutch master cylinder, line, hose and clutch slave cylinder. Check the level at the clutch master cylinder. The fill reservoir is along the firewall on drivers side with a black cap. It uses DOT 3 brake fluid. Add fluid if low and pump pedal. If low you have a leak. If full you have a master cylinder internal seal bad so you have to have the master cylinder for the clutch replaced.

Hydraulic clutch slave cylinder


this symptom would typically be solved with a new cluth slave cylinder. Check to make sure the fluid is full in the master cylinder reservoir. If the fluid is empty then there is either a leak, or the clutch is has worn. filling the reservoir and bleeding the system may get you back on the road.

2003 f150 clutch goes to the floor and pops back up but wont shift


sounds like the master cylinder reservoir is empty of fluid. re-fill with fluid and bleed all air out of system all the way to the slave cylinder,,, this will / should restore the system.
also,, check to make sure there is not fluid dripping from under the truck when you press in on the clutch pedal ( could be a leak or bad slave cylinder (?) ),, but I would say that the system just needs to be bled.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

I was driving today and had no problems out of the clutch in my 1988 f150 with 4.9 then all the suddon i push it in and the pedal goes 2 the floor and i have no clutch. what do i need to do?


You have a hydraulic clutch. It may be that the slave cylinder has been leaking and has run the reservoir dry thus allowing air into the system. Check the fluid level in the reservoir. If empty, look for leak at slave cylinder or elsewhere along the line from the master to the slave. Replace the slave cylinder or otherwise repair the leak, refill the reservoir and bleed the system. Any questions, please reply. I will paste diagram below.

Sister in law driving at 65 mph on turnpike, tried to down shift. Car would not down shift. Towed to my house. Clutch fluid reservoir empty. Filled reservoir with brake fluid, started engine. Forks on...


Did you bleed the air out of the system, also if empty there a leak some where. bleed system and check for leak's, look around for wetness could be a bad slave cylinder, clutch master or the line from clutch master to slave cylinder.

My clutch pedal is stuck to the floor??


It is most likely a hydraulic clutch, and it is most likely leaking at the clutch slave cylinder. Check the clutch master cylinder for fluid, it should be a small master cylinder looking thing with a fill cap next to the brake master cylinder and booster unit. If it is empty fill it with the same dot 3 brake fluid that you use for your brake master cylinder, and make sure that you are pouring the fluid into the clutch master cylinder reservoir and not the rubber seal that should be under the fill cap. After filling the clutch master cylinder up with fluid, then try and pump up the clutch pedal. It might take a while to pump up hydraulic pressure, and you might also have to work the pedal a few times by hand at first.

Also, you might have to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder if it will not build up enough pressure to release the clutch.

The Clutch is stuck to the floor?


Check the slave cylinders fluid level in the reservoir It will have a cap on it marked clutch fluid. If empty fill it and pump the clutch 25 times and then try it out. If the leak persist the slave cylinder will need to be replaced

The clutch on my car stuck to the floor. I check the reservoir was completely empty. I have a feeling the slave cylinder is filled with air. I'll need to get the schematics to see how to bleed the clutch.


Bleeding the clutch is similar to bleeding brakes. You'd pump the clutch pedal several times to get the pressure up, and then open the bleeder on the slave cylinder (mounted down on the transmission). Repeat and add fluid as needed until no air comes out.

Two things - first off, some cars have more than one bleed point (the Nissan 300ZX is one of those), so be sure there is only the slave cylinder to bleed. Second, if it went right to the floor, something failed - either the slave cylinder or the master cylinder. Changing the slave is relatively easy - usually two bolts and it comes off, you put on a new one, and bleed it as described above. Often the slave cylinder is less than $30, so it's worth it to try changing it if you can't get the pedal to come back off the floor on its own. A clutch master is significantly more expensive and more difficult to change, so start cheap and easy and replace the slave cylinder if you can't pump the pedal to get pressure built up for a bleed.
