CLUTCH STICKS...BUT WORKS!?

1994 Toyota 4Runner • 125,000 miles

We put fluid in resevoir. Clutch does fine until u hold it down for anytime then it sticks?U have to reacxh down and pull it up. We took top off resevoir and pushed on clutch. NO MOVEMENT of fluid at all. Bled it. Any ideas?

Thx,

The clutch master cylinder is bad and leaking pressure internally. You need to have it repaired or replaced.

Did you adjust the master cylinder to pedal push rod clearance correctly?
Too much clearance, meaning the clutch engages at a low pedal height, or insufficient clearance, a high pedal height can cuase the problem described.

Was the system bled correctly?
Is the slave cylinder leaking?
