Why will the clutch not pump but will stay all the way up or down in a 1990 Nissan 240SX with manual transmission added clutch fluid?
I would suspect that the clutch slave cylinder is bad. Follow the line down from where you added fluid to find the slave cylinder. After replacing the slave unit you will need to bleed the system then it will work fine again. Mark
I have researched this because I am considering making the conversion from automatic to manual transmission on my own 1995 240sx. It involves buying a manual transmission used from a junk yard or a rebuilt one, the clutch parts, a manual shifter, and the pedal with associated parts. there are actually lots of good resources to show you the specifics on how to do the work.

yes but you will need to swap over these parts. - 5-speed transmission - 5-speed crossmember - 5-speed driveshaft - Flywheel and MT bolts (marked "MT") - Clutch and pressure plate - Release bearing - Master and slave cylinders - Hardlines and rubber line from master to slave cyl. - Clutch pedal - Brake pedal (optional, can cut the automatic break pedal) - Boots and brackets for shifter assembly
The clutch wont engage on your 1990 Nissan 240sx and the pedal sucked to the floorboard what is the easiest way to fix this problem?
Take out the shifter and pour it directly into the transmission through that opening. Make sure to take the drain plug off to know when it is full. Once fluid starts coming out of the drain hole, you will know it is full. The drain plug is located underneath the transmission, on the driver's side. The bolt has a square shaped head. Good luck.
