Probably the hydraulics. Check the slave cylinder for leaks. Also if you replace the slave strongly consider replacing the hose also. The master cylinder can fail a can show little if any signs of leakage. If your car has 90K or more miles on it or an aftermarket clutch, master or slave failure is pretty common. If you have to remove the master cylinder a 10mm brakeline wrench that is heated and bent 90 degrees makes removal of hydraulic lines pretty easy....you will know what I mean after looking at the master. A flexible extension and sockets can remove master cylinder bolts from fire wall. Then the master should come off without having to go inside the car.

Good luck.

FastOldGuy tells no lies

Let me add to his post that one can tell which of the cylinders is the culprit by checking for leaks.
If the slave is leaking, there will be fluid on top of the tranny and quite possibly on the floor directly under the middle of the engine compartment.
A Master leak may show on the inside of the firewall where the clutch mechanism goes through.

Could be just the slave line, and if it is its a good chance to upgrade to a stainless braided one (3SX) and a speed bleeder from 3SX (Steve, you owe me for all the publicity ).

Good luck with the repair!

Bob.

Easy way to tell if its a hydraulic problem is to open the clutch resevoir and see if its low or empty.

If your clutch was slipping you could stepon the gas and the engine would rev up then the car would slowly move until it finally matched speed with the engine.

Default Re: Help No Pressure On My Clutch Pedal Unable To Change Gears

happened to me a week ago!

clutch peddle went loose

turns out it was the clutch cable leaking near the slave. heres what you do...

get brake fluid (dot3 or dot 4) which is what clutch fluid is..
put some cardboard or similar under the car, near the passengers side firewal ( possibly drivers side too)
fill up the master cylinder (pictured above)
pump the clutch pedal, see if you get pressure back, and then if you start to lose it again, look under the car for leaks.
if theres a leak IN the car near the pedal, or under the car near the drivers side, its probably your master cylinder
if theres a leak under the car near the passangers side, its either your slave cylinder or the slave cylinders clutch cable ( my case )


if its your master cylinder leaking buy the part replace it, bleed the system..
if its your secondary cylinder same as above
if its the cable, check out these directions http://stealth316.com/2-clutchhose.htm

note ( those directions will bring you to the secondary cylinder too, so if its that you found it and now you ahve to replace it. here is a part number taken directly from that page

a new clutch hose (Mitsu part number MR151526, "Hose, clutch release cylinder", about $10 from Tallahassee Mitsubishi); and a fresh container of DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid (6 oz is more than enough, about $1.50 for 12-oz at your local grocery or car parts store).

but what i would suggest is the route i went.. i bought a new stainless steal braided clutch cable from 3sx.com and also bought the stock slave cylinder to be safe ( i like newer, its shiny )

if you need more help or any questions youve got, pm me or respond here. or catch me on aim: nmeaim

good luck!
