is this moving when mobile , over bumps? check engine mounts, gear box mounts and also check that clutch slave cylander is secure and not loose
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 have a broken clutch.
Fault with clutch master cylinder.
On a 1998 Ford Mustang : With the engine OFF - put your gearshift in first gear - put your foot under the clutch pedal and gently lift the clutch pedal until the pedal stops - slowly push the clutch pedal down - you will hear a click if your clutch needed adjusting and adjusted itself
Bad hydraulic cylinders.
Broken clutch fork, or other parts.
hydraulics work because fluids are considered a non-compressible material. therefore when you put your foot down on the clutch pedal it pushes the hydraulic fluid pressure through the line to disengage the clutch. if there is air in the line the air bubble will compress (gases ARE compressible) and you will feel a "spongy pedal" and you will have to "pump" the clutch pedal to move that air bubble down the hydraulic line before you get a "good" clutch
I have a 95 Honda Civic with that exact problem. In fact the clutch was just replaced with all new parts about two months ago. Is it unsafe to drive? Everything else seems to work just fine. Except there is absolutely no resistance from the pedal until you get down to about 3/4 of the way down you usually would.
The clutch pedal.
You may need a new clutch.
clutch needs replacing good luck! not a fun job
Hi, i guess you were meaning "clutch". The clutch pedal in a manual car is situated on the left-side of the break pedal. It is pressed down when shifting gears.
The clutch arm is like a teeter-todder. The clutch arm sits on a pivot point in the transmission bell housing and disengages the clutch by pushing down on the pressure place through a "throw out" bearing when the clutch pedal is pushed down.
Either the drive belt is not releasing far enough when you press the clutch pedal or the brake is not engaging enough. You will need to see if the belt is still turning when you press the clutch pedal down.
All the information I can find says the same thing. There is no adjustment for clutch cable or linkage due to the system is hydraulically driven. If you are experiencing clutch pedal squeaks, or uneven feel when you push the pedal in, try spraying the pedal bushing with a penetrating oil and work the pedal up and down.
On a 1996 Ford Mustang : To adjust the clutch : - without the engine running , put your transmission in 1st gear - GENTLY , with your foot , pull the clutch pedal UP until it stops moving - SLOWLY push the clutch pedal DOWN all the way ( if you hear a click the clutch needed adjusting and has adjusted itself )
It would hurt it. Changing the spring will make the pedal harder to push down. The spring pulls the pedal up.
Yes. There is a switch located behind the clutch pedal to must be depressed (when the clutch pedal is pressed all the way down) in order for the ignition circuit to be completed. Therefore the car will not start if the clutch pedal is not pressed all the way down. Starting a car while it is in gear can be very damaging to the transmission.ADDED: ... not to mention other cars and people around you!
Most likely, a broken pressure plate.
You have to keep it down with your foot!
The clutch master cylindar is most likely leaking. It's literally a hydraulic piston attached to the clutch pedal. It is also possible that brake fluid is leaking from the brake master cylendar and running down the line to the clutch pedal, ending up inside.
If you want to adjust the clutch on a 1996 Ford Mustang : Without the engine running put your transmission in 1st gear Put your foot under the clutch pedal and GENTLY pull the pedal up until it stops Then SLOWLY push the clutch pedal down all the way , if your clutch needed adjusting you should hear a click
Clutch drag is when the clutch pedal is fully depressed and the clutch is still partially engaged. When the clutch pedal is released or in the up position the engine is connected to the transmission input shaft. When the pedal is depressed or in the down position the engine is disconnected completely from the transmission. When the clutch drags it is still partially attached to the engine. A dragging clutch can cause a glazed flywheel and premature failure of the clutch. It will also cause the syncros to work twice as hard to slow down or speed up a gear inside the transmission when shifting. Basically syncros will wear out faster than normal and may not work properly depending on how bad the clutch drag is.
