Default Clutch petal have NO RESISTANCE. HELP!

I got a 95 Honda Civic with the clutch not having any resistance. It goes up and down no problem but there isnít any resistance. When I go into reverse it grinds. I changed out the clutch master cylinder, slave cylinder and even bled it for at least 30-40 min but no progress. I check the lines and I donít see any leaks. I donít know what is wrong please help.

Just the basic way, one person pump then hold while the other release the 8mm on the slave cylinder.

i find to helpful to cut a 2x4 so it can hold the pedal down when wedged against the seat bottom.
no man is an island but i gotta get sh*t done!:lol:

Make sure that the master cylinder push rod is not set too long. Just loosen it if you're not sure. The master cylinder piston has to come all the way out when the pedal is up, or no fluid can leave the reservoir.

You really need either an assistant or special pressure or vacuum equipment to do a bleed.

This is where a MightyVac comes in handy.

from your description, it doesn't sound like a hydraulics issue but a mechanical one. slip the boot off of the fork/slave cylinder to get a better look at what's going on. could be a damaged or bent fork, worn or failed release bearing or broken pressure plate spring(s)
