Look for the small master cylinder resiviour beside the larger one for the brakes. Take the cap off and check the level, it is probably very low fill it with the type of fluid labled on the cap. The clutch is self bleeding these days, pump the pedle fast for like 50 strokes or whatever it takes to get a firm pedle. Check your fluid level again, you will probably need to add more. now look under the truck for a leak, especially dripping out from between the bell housing and the engine.

Brake pedal goes to floor


for the pedal to go to the floor there is still air in the brake system. Start again starting from the longest line bleeding each in turn to the shortest line . make sure you have adjusted up the rear brakes before bleeding as every time you press on the pedal the shoes expand right out and when you take your foot off the pedal the shoes go all the way back in. adjust them manually and do not rely on the self adjuster as it only adjusts on wheel movement

Clutch pedal goes to floor and half works on my b2200 1987 mazda pick-up


If the clutch is hydraulic operated, you need to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder, down on the transmission housing. Bleed it just like you bleed brakes of air in the line-open bleeder valve, someone pushes clutch pedal slowly to floor, close valve, and repeat until fluid comes out valve in a steady stream. Make sure the clutch reservoir is full before starting. It uses regular brake fluid.
If not hydraulic, it would be cable operated. Adjust the cable until clutch pedal is right.

Shifter works when car is off, start car and then shifter won't go in gear. if i start vehicle in first with clutch pedal to floor, car starts going forward. mazda miata mx-5 just put new slave cylinder in...


The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

Clutch wont work


Check and make sure you have fluid in the clutch master cylinder. If it is low fill and check for leaks. Repair leaks as needed and bleed system. If fluid was full check adjustment and bleed system, if there is air in the system pedal will go to the floor.

Clutch pedal stays on floor


the problem is that either the master or slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch have failed, it is always recommended that they both replaced together, u can bleed the clutch but the problem will occur again.

Need to make a clutch adjustment on 1991 Mazda B220 pickup


Check the fluid, check for leaks, if there is replace the cylinder or hose and bleed the lines of any air. There a two cylinders, the master cylinder(on the fire wall not far from the brake cylinder) and the slave cylinder(on the gearbox) i think this maybe your problem.
