The clutch pedal is loose until it reaches close to the floor. Normally it is resistant and 'springy' all the way down. The car will not shift gears. My clutch/brake fluid reservoir is full, and I cant see any leaks. Based on a little research, I believe it may be a master or slave cylinder, but wanted a more knowledgeable opinion.
My car has a manual transmission.
Hi Colburn. It’s quite possible that the master or slave cylinder is the root source of your problem - as this is a common symptom associated with these components when damaged or leaking fluid. Abnormal pedal pressure is another symptom of a potential problem with a bad or failing master cylinder. If the cylinder develops any internal issues, it will directly affect the feel of the pedal. A leaky cylinder may cause the pedal to feel mushy or spongy, and in more severe cases, will lead to a pedal that will sink to the floor and stay there when depressed. Anytime you replace one, it is best practices to replace both at the same time.
