I have a 1987 Nissan 300zx Turbo, clutch stays to the floor and won't shift when the car is on. What do I do?

Asked by Aug 14, 2012 at 07:16 PM about the 1987 Nissan 300ZX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've already filled it back up with brake fluid, it was pretty low. It turns on fine and everything is working. But for some
reason when I try to shift when the car is on it won't. It will when the car is off but the clutch will stay to the floor
whether the car is off or on..

The first thing to do is check the master cylinder to be sure that it is full of fluid. If it is not then you have a leak somewhere. The pedal to the floor means you have air in the system due to the leak. Fix the leak and then bleed the air. But you could also have a problem with either your master cylinder or slave cylinder.
