Why is my clutch sticking to the floor and why won't it shift into gear when the car is on?

Ok Matt,I got you covered,when your clutch master cylinder goes empty,your clutch slave is leaking and not holding pressure,you can fill reservoir and bleed to get you home,I've did it in my 85 nissan 720 4x4 before,you can have someone pump clutch pedal a few times and hold to floor and you open bleeder valve at slave cylinder till air is gone,just don't let resevoir get low.Here is a link to bleeding,your slave cylinder is bolted to side of transmission with 2 bolts.Be careful and don't strip bleeder screw,you can get part at Autozone,also get dot 3 brake fluid,this autozone iis not showing a guide to replace,here's one from a 85 nissan,very similar.

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

My 1994 Nissan Altima's clutch is leaking fluid and the clutch goes all the way down to the floor, it will not go into gear

The solution is pretty cut-and-dry. Fix the fluid leak and your transmission will go into gear. I don't know what to tell you to fix exactly because I do not know where it is leaking from. If it is leaking from the slave cylinder, replace the slave cylinder; If it is leaking from the master cylinder, replace the master cylinder, etc.

Fixing just one part of the clutch may not be the best option for you however. Clutch parts seem to wear out all within a few thousand miles of one-another. Depending on how many miles are on your vehicle you may want to do a complete clutch replacement so you won't have any further clutch problems for several years.

I have a 1999 nissan maxima se the a/c clutch went out. Can I repalce just the clutch or do I have to replace the whole unit. I have been told both.

You can just replace the clutch, but if you dont fix the reason WHY it went out, your going to have to replace the compressor, anyhow. Its 11 years old, find out if the condenser fans are working ok. replace th ecompressor, and drier, and flush out the condensor. Have a a/c shop do it, you dont want to try it yourself, it will just cost even more.

2002 fair lady nissan, installed a new clutch, now the car won't start. What's the problem?? help

the clutch is not disengaging to release the clutch into neutral to allow the car to start. or the release bearing is bad or installed wrong. take it back to them and let them fix it. I know you probably paid a pretty penny to do this.

2006 nissan maxima clutch problems

I have the same problem with my '06. It must be a design problem of some sort for so many people to have the same issue. I think we should all call the dealerships' service departments so they can address it with Nissan tech reps. Then if Nissan doesn't come up with a 'fix' we advertise the problem somehow so Nissan loses customers or customer confidence.

Clutch stays engaged and stays on the floor 97 Nissan Maxima

I'm going to need more information. Does the peddal feel the same? Do you have any weird vibrations? My first feeling is that your Throw out bearing is bad, in which case you will need to replace the clutch. Second is that your Hydraulic system on the clutch has a leak or is dry. let me know.

Clutch Problems

Poss. wrong fluid in trans. It takes 75W-90. Is your clutch master cylinder full?? if not you have a leak. Replace the master cylinder and slave cylinder on trans. Look at the master cylinder boot to see if its wet/inside the car by the clutch pedal. Fluid normally leaks into the boot
