1991 Jeep Wrangler - Clutch pedal has lost pressure

Clutch pedal has lost pressure and pressure point is now on or near the very bottom (floor). When last driven, it seemed the transmission was just beginning to slip. Is this the master cylinder, slave cylinder or both?

It could actually the master cylinder because all the gear changing with the clutch goes through the master cylinder but i would go to the dealer and ask them what could it be

My clutch pedal is very loose and can't seem to change gears,pls help


If light pressure on your clutch pedal causes it to fall or easily be pushed to the floor and you cannot feel a normal point in which the clutch should engage it is quite possibly the slave cylinder. Most mechanic shops will tell you to replace the clutch and while doing the service they will replace the slave cylinder. Do you see or smell any brake fluid leaking? Brake fluid is used in the clutch hydraulic system. So if your brake fluid is low or you can see it leaking or smell it burning this would Point towards slave cylinder. There are other ways to check if your slave cylinder is working appropriately by looking under the vehicle having the clutch pedal pushed and seeing if the cylinder is engaging the transmission and then feeling for resistance.

2001 Camry 5 speed. It starts but it will not move. I can change gears without pushing in clutch. One mechanic said it was clutch and a different one said transmission is out. Which is it?


The clutch is not transferring power to the gearbox, which then is not turning, so that you can select gears without the clutch.Possibilities are
- clutch assembly has failed, possibly by the splined driven plate hub coming adrift
- clutch driven plate has become very worn and has lost contact
- slave cylinder has stuck through corrosion (assuming a hydraulic clutch) and is holding out the clutch independent of the pedal. This can be determined by watching it while someone depresses and raises the pedal.

I think it is unlikely the transmission input shaft has fractured.

86 acura legend manual transmission shifting problems


so the problem is that you cannot get it into gear from a stop
(grinds trying to force into gear) . if you have a clutch pedal, what I mean is that clutch pedal has pressure behind it,moves up and down by itself, then its a clutch assy needs replaced.clutch disc/pressure plate/release bearing. if there is no pedal,falls to floor, its either clutch slave or clutch master failure issue(lost all fluid). but nothing points at needing a transmission,it should be fine

My clutch pedal used to be pretty stout and the clutch would engage at about the midway point to the floor. All of a sudden the clutch pedal is pretty free to the floor where the clutch now engages. what...


sounds to me like the clutch master cylinder might be bad usually this happens when the line or the clutch master cylinder leaks fluid and you lose pressure to your clutch pedal...you should have a hydraulic clutch on this truck...if its leaking it will need to be replaced its located under the truck usually on the drivers side mounted on the transmission bell housing...hopes this helps

Repairing linkeage on 89 VX fox


If by fixing the clutch you mean replacing it ?
Replacing the clutch is relatively straightforward:
Parts needed:
Throwout bearing
Transmission clutch kit including pressure plate and driven plate
rear main seal for the engine
rear transmission mount rubber.
Shifter linkage rebuild kit ($20 bux from the parts place, google on web)
3 qts redline MTL transmission oil
17 mm hex wrench to drain and replace fluid (think Sears here)
Borrow of buy a clutch alignment tool (no not the rabbit style)
With vehicle on ground loosen the front wheel hub nuts (they are on VERY tight >150Lbs/ft torque)
Remove the battery ground connection after noting any radio securoty codes you may have.
Chock the wheels , jack up the front of the vehicle, secure on jackstands.
remove the drive shafts on both sides baggie the CVs so you don't contaminate them.
Mark and emove the starter wires, remove the starter.
If starter is old consider getting it rebuilt at this time.
remove the shifter linkages, replace all the worn plastic bits, bag and lay aside.
Support the engine with a floor jack. Loosen the front engine snubber mount (near the crankshaft pullry)
remove the transmsiion mount (looks like a sqaushed starred donut) under drivers feet (approximately) Remove the mount bracket
I suggest you renew the mount at this time
Remove the clutch cable from the clutch lever
remove the bolts holding the tranny to the engine
Lower the engine at the rear
SUPPORT the transmission and slide the unit off the pilot bushing. PUT NO PRESSURE on the transmission input shaft!!!
Lower tranny to ground and remove from under unit.
mark the pressure plate (clutch cover) as to orientation with a witness mark. Remove it and the clutch driven plate, don't breathe the dust. (BAD for humans) Note the driven plates spline orientation.
Clean the pilot bushing in the center with carb cleaner, regrease when dry with a smear of MOS2 greas (black and ugly type) Not too much just a thin smear.
Clean the transmission shaft with WD40 or Kerosene, dry with clean rag.
Remove and replace the throwout bearing, if you've been breaking clutch cables lately the pivot point on the side of the case where the thowout shaft lives is dirty. It needs to be cleaned w/cleaner and lubed with MOS2 grease.
Place the clutch plate in position, make sure you get the splines oriented correctly.
Clean the steel surface of the clutch pressure plate with a light hydrocarbon like lighter fluid, no grease here... I've used starting fluid here in a pinch, no smoking ;-)
Place the clutch cover (new unit? orient the same as the old one) over the plate. Use the tool to center the plate under the cover. If you mis-align the plate putting the unit back together will be a painful experience... so be careful, check your work. Tighten the plate into position, use a cross pattern on the bolts. Don't be sloppy here , a bolt coming loose would be bad $$$$$...
Add a small amount of grease onto the transmission input splines. This helps the clutch action, not a lot just a bit to make the shaft shiny.
If you're strong enough you can lift the transmission into position and slide it onto the plate splines. Otherwise use a floor jack to lift into position. Put the tranny in gear so that you can spin the axel adapter to move the shaft splines to get them to align.
Reverse this procedure to finish up.
I recommend driving the car after initially adjusting the pedal for 12mm or 1/2 free play. Drive the car and re-adjust as needed.
Get the transmission hot by driving for an hour.
Drain the fluid.
replace the bottom plug after it stops dripping
Add fluid to the side plug till the fluid runs out. replace the plug.
Enjoy the new clutch.

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

My 1994 ford rangers clutch pedal just lost all pedal


There are two types of clutch actuators. (Mechanical & Hydtraulic)
A. For mechanical type,- Check the clutch cable as
this could be cut from wear and tear. This is easy
to replace. You can find this connected to the
pedal and the clutch lever near the transmission.
B.For hydraulic operated - Check the level of the
hydraulic oil at the cylinder of the hydraulic
actuator under the hood. This actuator is
directly connected to the pushrod driven by the
pedal. If the actuator is leaking, you have buy
a repair kit (Hyraulic clutch repair kit for Ford
Ranger 1994 MOdel.) These items must be
repaired to activate your pedal.
