    Any mechanics out their?

    I have a 94 Nissan Hardbody Pick Up. I only drive it like 2 or 3 times a week. Lately the clutch peddle has been all the way to the floor when I haven't driven it in a few days. I have to reach down and pull it up with my hand. I pump it a couple of times and its good to go. It shifts fine and normal once I get the peddle back up. The hydro fluid reservoir is full.

    Is this something I should worry about? Is my clutch going out?

    I'd lean towards a master cylinder or slave cylinder with internal bypass problem. I would recommend getting it looked into as it may fail completely at a very bad time.
    If I remember the slave is external so no transmission R&R.

    Had it been serviced recently?

    As mentioned above the clutch is probably fine, it sounds like you have a seal problem. I never understood the fascination with hydro clutches, a linkage is more direct and you get more feel. You have no idea what a nightmare it is to bleed a clutch on a Saab 9000 or a FJ40 Landcruiser.

    Thanks guys. I'll get it looked at when I can. I have another car I just put $600 in, so the hardbody will have to wait. If it gos out on me I know how to drive it with out the clutch.

    Out their minds?

    Or "Out there"?

    About $30 in rebuild kits , $5 in fluid and do it yourself. Simple and easy, will take roughly 2 hours, 3 if you have no clue.
