Q: Clutch going to floor

asked by on

The clutch on my car is going to the floor and I have no pressure.

I would check the fluid level on the clutch master cylinder first. If it is low, I would add DOT 3 clutch fluid, then pump the pedal several times to bring it up. If you are low on fluid, you probably have a leak in your clutch system. To have the leak taken care of, I would have a certified mechanic verify the cause of your clutch problem and replace the clutch fluid if needed.
