When I push the clutch pedal I goes all the way down, I used to have to pump it for it to want to go into gear, now it won't even come back up.
Do you
have the same problem?

Thanks for the post. Under the hood near the brake master cylinder is a small cup like clutch master cylinder, with a small white round cap. Dot 3 brake fluid goes in there. You may or may not know all this. If its low on fluid, fill it. Also there is a clutch slave cylinder with a bleeder screw attatched to it. This is where you bleed it to get a full pedal. Takes two people. One pumps up the pedal & holds it down, while in the down position the other person opens the srew, lets air & fluid come out & closes it back, now while the cl. Master cyl is way up high, the clu. Slave cyl. Is way low between the lower part of the radiator & the transmission bellhousing. A fluid line runs from one to the other. You can do this. With help. Afterwards clean all access fluid to check for leaks in the future. If no leaks r present you have a faulty clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder. Please let us know how u proceed & what happens. Thanks.

Thanks before for the help, I did as you said, and the pedal worked as normal for a couple of miles, eventually it did the same as before and now is in the same condition, I am going to purchase a new master clutch cylinder, but before hand I would like to know how difficult would this be, and could I get a simple walk-through of the procedure. Will donate next time. SERIOUSLY THANKS. :)
