Could it be the slave cylinder the reason why you have no clutch pedal?

Yes. If either cylinder or the line fails, you lose the clutch pedal. Slave cylinder is a good place to start.

The clutch pedal assembly has a clutch rod that pushes in on a clutch master cylinder. There is a hydro line that goes from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder.

The master clutch cylinder is attached to the clutch pedal. When one depresses the pedal hydraulic fluid is forced from the master cylinder through the hard line to the slave cylinder. The piston in the slave cylinder is driven against the clutch linkage thereby releasing the clutch.

replace the bushing where the clutch pedal attaches to the master cylinder arm.

Fault with clutch master cylinder.

In a vehicle, if the radio goes off when the clutch pedal is pressed, there could be an electrical issue. A professional mechanic can diagnose the exact reason.

Hydraulic clutch? Maybe a bad rear seal in the clutch master cylinder

Virtually all automobiles have a brake cylinder at each wheel (a "slave cylinder"). ========================================================== A 1997 Ford Mustang has a cable operated clutch so there is no clutch slave cylinder . To adjust the clutch - Without the engine running , put your transmission in 1st gear - put your foot under the clutch pedal and GENTLY pull the clutch pedal up until it stops - SLOWLY push the clutch pedal all the way down . If the clutch needed adjusting you will hear a click

No.... There is not an adjustment what so ever. You either have a bad clutch slave cylinder / clutch master cylinder. Are the clutch and pressure plate are worn out.

clamp the line to the slave cylinder and mash the clutch pedal. if the pedal gets hard to push,the slave is bad. if the clutch pedal goes down slowly with moderate pressure,the master cyl is bad clamp the line going to the slave cylinder. meant to say that in the previous answer

If it has a hydraulic clutch, it is probably the slave cylinder. You could still have pedal but the slave is letting the fluid past the seals. Have someone watch the slave while the clutch pedal is pushed.

The clutch and brake`s share the same resovoir the clutch master cylinder is attached to the top of clutch pedal and the clutch slave cylinder is inside the gearbox bell housing.

Cable clutch - when you depress the clutch lever or pedal, you pull at a Cable whose other end is attached to the fork that operates the pressure plate in the clutch assembly. Hydraulic clutch - when you depress the clutch lever or pedal, you push at a piston in a Master cylinder. Pushing at the piston pressurizes the hydraulic fluid in the master cylinder, and in the hose leading to a Slave cylinder placed at the clutch. The piston in the slave cylinder extends and operates the pressure plate in the clutch assembly.

Go to the transmission and check slave cylinder for leaks,also check clutch master cylinder,then go look by your clutch pedal to see if its leaking there,these are your places that it could be leaking,is your fluid level low,if not ,then you may need a new clutch kit.

Actually if the fluid is coming down the clutch pedal it is probably your clutch master cylinder going bad or the seal around it. No worries it is a cheap fix. If it is coming down the clutch pedal it has nothing to do with your brakes. Some people well most use brake fluid for the clutch.

is it main cylinder or clutch slave sylinder? if is main then its behind there clutch pedal and if its a clttch slave ots ill be on gear box or near there. hi

clutch master slave cylinder just replaced mine and now it doesn't do it

broken clutch cable could also be a shot slave cylinder...this will cause the clutch pedal to not come back up.

You don't because there isn't one. Your car has a hydraulic clutch--there's a master cylinder on the pedal and a clutch cylinder on the side of the transmission.

Open bleeder on the clutch slave cylinder and bleed the system. Follow the line from the clutch master cylinder reservoir to the slave cylinder. There you will find the bleeder valve on the slav cylinder. Follow this procedure to properly bleed the hydraulic clutch which is similar to bleeding brakes. 1) Top off the clutch master cylinder reservoir. 2) Put a clear plastic tube on the bleeder nipple and submerge the end of the tube in a jar with some clutch hydraulic fluid. 3) Slowly depress the clutch pedal. 4) SLIGHTLY loosen the bleeder nipple. 5) While fluid is traveling through the tube, tighten the bleeder BEFORE the pedal is fully depressed. 6) Release pedal. Repeat procedure until you are certain: A) No bubbles appear in the fluid stream. B) The bleeder was opened after the clutch pedal started depressing and was closed before the pedal reached the bottom. C) The master cylinder reservoir never uncovered the ports in the bottom. Make sure the slave cylinder is tightly fastened to the transmission case and does not move when the clutch pedal is depressed. Look for threaded adjustment rods in the slave cylinder and clutch pedal linkages that can be used to insure the clutch is fully released BEFORE the clutch pedal is fully depressed.

It depends on the type of clutch linkage. If it's mechanical linkage the clutch could be worn and the rod dropped out. If it's a hydraulic clutch, the clutch master or slave cylinder could be worn out.
