Ok...This is really pissing me off...

I just bought a new clutch hose, washers, I had the slave cylinder checked, and it's fine.

I STILL HAVE NO ****ING PRESSURE IN MY CLUTCH.

I honestly can't figure it out.
I feel retarded that I can't...


Help?

If you've bled the system over and over again, and it still wont hold, time to get a new master cylinder...
(and a good tip - after you've finally gained pressure, replacing the master cylinder, make sure you adjust your clutch pedal down or upwards so you wont post back here saying, "WTF? my clutch is slipping?")

OH man, you dont know G-man, after i replaced my master cylinder, slave and hose, i thought i would be good to go right? So i drove out to Brooklyn to see my friends and what happens after 10 mins of highway driving? I would hear, "VRRRRRMmMMM and see the tach fly, but the car not moving"

I've been stranded all over the 5 boroughs in this car due to random clutch problems...
1) the MS goes - in morning madness commute
2)the Slave goes on the Brooklyn-Queens expressway
3)the hose goes in mid town Manhattan, almost causing a taxi car crash pile up due to my clutch pedal having 0 pressure.
4)My MS goes again! (buy Japanese parts!!!)
5)I fixed everything and didn't adjust the pedal so i'm going 40mph while everyone else is flying by me at 70, yelling, screaming, cursing, pumping fists flicking the middle finger, the whole lot on the Brooklyn-Queens expressway...

:crying:

Ok,
Here's what has been happening.
When I bought the car, I drove it home, and the clutch started dropping randomly to the floor, and I had to pull it back up, and it was fine...

Now, I have no pressure, the pedal falls to the fall, without return...
I've come to two reasons...and I hope that you guys can help me out here.

1.) I need a new master cylinder
2.) There's something wrong with my return spring

Just go to google!

One other question,
How do I tell if my master cylinder is f#@$ed?

It usually takes more than once, you have to do it a couple of times to make sure that all of the air is out of the lines.

Use a mity-vac or comparable and do a bleed. I had clutch problems a couple years ago and it turned out to be my clutch fork. The damn thing broke. One of the "forks" snapped right off.
That was a PITA. I had replaced the master, slave, line (ss braided), adjusted the pedal, and bled a dozen times with a mity-vac.
