One of two possibilities. Check the master clutch cylinder container to see if the fluid has all leaked out. If it has, chances are, either the master or slave cylinder need to be replaced. A mechanic fixed mine and wrote on the repair workup that he replaced the master clutch cylinder, however upon subsequent investigation, I discovered he had actually replaced the slave cylinder, refilled with DOT fluid and rebled the cylinder. This fixed the problem you described for me, on a 97 Honda Accord.
I just fixed a 2003 Accord and I'm fairly sure all Hondas use
hydraulic clutches. When you stepped on the clutch you
could see the clutch lever depress fully and then would
slowly move back as the pressure bleed off.
I replaced the slave cylinder first (it is easy
to get too) and that improved it little but then had to replace
the master cylinder to reallly fix it. Usually slave cylinders fail first
because the operate at much higher pressure than the master.
It really helps to have a pressurized bleeder because the line from
the master to the slave goes up and across the back of the engine
(I think I bought mine of Ebay) It make bleeding all hydraulic
systems a one man, fool proof job.
Also some mechanics have had bad results with nonHonda
parts.Answer 2The above answerer is correct. However, another problem that can cause a clutch pedal to stay down is that your clutch is burned out. It happened to me when I had a Nissan 300zx clutch that burned out. Two days prior I was driving and the pedal just sunk to the floor but there was still some clutch left. After that the clutch just would not disengage anymore and I had to get it fixed.
Before replacing ANYTHING you should bleed the clutch system. that is what was wrong with mine.Hydraulic or Cable?The above answers may be correct but they assume you have a hydraulic clutch. There are two types of clutch assemblies, the hydraulic clutch aseembly and a cable clutch assembly, if you have a cable clutch assembly it may be as easy as replacing the clutch cable. Mine recently broke, it made a loud pop when I tried to shift into gear, when I took my foot off the pedal it just laid on the floor. I have yet to figure out how to replace it though, it is a European spec Volvo with very little info on it on the internet.
Well, we need lots more information here. Is the clutch pedal actually "stuck" to the floor? In other words, can you NOT lift the pedal up to the normal position? OR, has the clutch pedal "fallen" to the floor due to no resistance from the clutch?
It's called: Your clutch is working.
You have a broken clutch.
The clutch cable has proabably broken.
where and how to adjust clutch pedal 1993 s10 It is hydraulic operated, there is no adjustment.
To adjust the clutch pedal height in the Peugeot 307 locate the adjuster bolt on the floor under the clutch pedal. Loosen the bolt and pull out the pedal to the proper height then tighten the bolt. To make the clutch pedal lower for the operator simply push in on the clutch pedal while the adjuster bolt is loose, then tighten the bolt.
Any clutch that starts to move the vehicle at or near the top of the pedal movement (farthest away from the floor) needs to be adjusted.
depress the clutch pedal to the floor several times
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.
You should not attempt to replace the clutch yourself unless you have considerable mechanical skills. In this case, the problem is most likely that the spring holding the clutch pedal in place is broken.
If the pedal just randomly falls to the floor, you probably have a broken pedal or linkage. If we are talking about it having no resistance when you press it and the clutch not disengaging, you probably have a leak in your clutch hydraulics. This can be a bad master or slave cylinder, or a leaky line. Bleed the clutch, and then keep checking the fluid daily to see if you are losing it.
You may need a new clutch.
Clutch plates are sticking - get your clutch checked you might need a new one
You've blown a clutch hose by the sound of it, or you've got a leak in the clutch master or slave cylinder. Either way, without clutch fluid, the clutch pedal wont come off the floor and the clutch will be disengaged. Any half decent mechanic should be able to figure out what the issue is without charging and arm and a leg.
Pump the pedal to the floor and then screw on the cylinder.
Bleed the slave cyl. It probebly has air in the line or no fluid.
The clutch pedal free play is less than specification tech a says the clutch may slip during hard acceleration. tech b says that the clutch will grab when the clutch pedal is close to the floor when the clutch is engaged whose correct
Its at the top of the clutch pedal there is a cruise control switch disengage switch at the bottom and the one above that is the clutch inhibitor switch.
if its hydraulic there could be air in your line. bleed your clutch and refill.
The clutch pedal will have more play in it before catching. A good clutch catches near the floor, while a bad clutch must travel further for the clutch plate to meet the flywheel. If the pedal travels close to the top of it's path, then the clutch is probably wearing low.
right behind the intake manifold, there is a cable that runs into the firewall that is attached to a bracket and arm. there is 2 nuts on the end of a cable. loosen the top nut to access the bottom nut. the looser the nut, the closer off the floor the pedal will release. the tighter you adjust the cable, the clutch will release farther up with the clutch pedal. i adjust it fairly loose so i know the clutch is fully release when the pedal is fully extended. good luck.
No pressure in clutch resevior, its next to the brake resevior, if its empty, put more, if not you have a leak.
The clutch pedal cannot be adjusted
turn your car on and pump the peddel with your hand till u get pressure then get a new clutch and master cylinder for the clutch
The clutch pedal dropping to the floor indicates no pressure to hold it up. In a hydraulic system the master cylinder or slave cylinder have either gone bad or the fluid is too low. If fluid is low then air has gotten into the lines preventing the pressure from operating the clutch. This can also be caused by a broken arm attached to the pedal.
