Clutch pedal goes strait to the floor??clutch won't bleed up??

It has air bubbles on the piping, fill the deposit with brake solution, and push and pull the clutch pedal with your hand it doesn't matter if it goes straight to the floor if that happens pull it with your hand, repeat that as if you are bleeding it up, then disconnect the piping beneath the car, the air bubbles will be forced out, then reconnect the piping and repeat the procedure, push and pull the clutch pedal like a 100 times, then disconnect the piping and reconnect. The clutch pedal should be able to go back when there is no air on the piping. If that doesn't work, replace your clutch pump

My clutch goes straight to the floor, cant shift gears

The most likely cause of your problem is a hydraulic system problem. Your clutch system works off of hydraulic pressure and if there is a leak or it ran out of fluid it will cause the problem you have. 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.
You could have a problem with either your master cylinder or slave cylinder.

No quick fixes, once it slip the transmission is pretty well done due to damage to the clutch packs, pull the pan and see how much debris is in there, if it is allot then an overhaul is needed, I would suggest that all the shift solenoids be replaced during the fix, also make sure th connector to the tran is in good condition, no loose pins or damaged connector locks.

I replaced a hydrolic clutch on a 1988 prelude. I don,t know how to bleed the system. Help?????

you need 2 people, 1 with a spanner on the bleeder and the other to pump the clutch. fill the fluid canaster, pump the clutch, with the bleeder shut, then hold the clutch down then undo the bleeder, without releasing the clutch, allow the clutch to go to the floor air will come out, then tighten the bleeder, then you can release the clutch, keep repeating until you have a stream of fluid and no air, always make sure you have done up the bleeder before you release the clutch, and mke sure you have fluid in the canaster.
