Default Clutch Hydraulics...

Sorry for the cross-post again...need some help! I'm having some problems with the clutch system. All the gears work fine when the engine is off, but with it running, I can't shift into any gears. I believe that the transmission pieces are assembled correctly, as in the hardware inside of the trannt case. So, that leaves the hydraulics. I have SOME pedal pressure, but only very little, and only at the very bottom of the clutch stroke. Looking at the fluid reservoir, if I leave the clutch up (non-depressed) and push the slave cylinder piston into the slave, the fluid level rises. Then, with the slave piston pushed in, if I depress the clutch pedal, the slave piston pushes out. However, it doesn't come out very far. It comes out MAYBE like 3/4" to and inch at most. With the slave piston pushed in, depressing the clutch does not change the fluid level, but does push the slave piston out, as stated before. With the slave piston not pushed into the slave, depressing the clutch does not change the fluid level. So, what do you all think is the problem?

Thanks,
-Rob

I HAD the same exact problem 2 years ago. Not sure how old your car is or how many miles, but my car is a '95 SL1 with 208k. I could shift like nothing while off, but when running it was IMPOSSIBLE to shift. Took it in, needed Slave Cylindar replaced. After that the shop guy said "if the problem comes back, you'll need the master cylindar replaced as well". Well the problem came back, so I got a new master cylindar. PROBLEM SOLVED. This was way back when my car had 160,000 miles on it. Never had a problem since. The whole job cost less than $650 I believe. If you can do it yourself, GREAT. I'm not THAT good, so I had the pro's do it.

General rule of thumb is that if the clutch pedal is engaging low to the floor it is normally a hydralic problem. Get the clutch master/slave set up from Saturn and put it in.

If I accelerate hard my pedal pressure drops - the pedal stays lower than it is supposed to. If I pull up the pedal with my foot, it stays where it is supposed to until the next time I accelerate very quickly. My clutch is going and Im going to change it soon, but does this seem like bad hydraulics as well?

(sorry to hijack, but this seems related)

This sounds more like a problem with the pressure plate to me. I suppose it could be hydraulics.
