You could have air in the clutch cylinder or there could be wear in your clutch master cylinder, You need to start by checking the fluid the the reservoir and then try bleeding the clutch, if this doesn't help then you will need a repalkcement master cylinder, It is recommended that you replace the slave cylinder at the same time as well as the flexible rubber hose.

Your relays are or should be in the engine compartment under a plastic box or under the dash board on the driver's side or on the side of the dash board on drivers side.

Have a 1998 Ford Mustang GT 106000 miles Had clutch replaced at 80000 miles Last night I was coming to a stop and it made a loud pop I thought it had turned off but was still running Seems to be running...


If you have driven 26,000 without a problem I doubt it's related to the clutch replacement, but I think we need more info here.
Does the car make the noise multiple times during one trip (on and off as you start and stop)?
Can you hear it when you are parked in your driveway? The best thing to do would be to get out of the car when you hear the noise, pop the hood, and try to locate which part of the engine it is coming from. Then we can move on from there.

Me and a mate have been trying to bleed my clutch on my 80 series for 5 hrs and carnt get anywhere. What the hell am I doing wrong? I can do everythingt else other then 1 of the simplist job


Just follow the procedure in the right order. Fill the clutch reservoir on the master cylinder to the max and leave the lid loose. Fit a transparent plastic pipe on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder bleed nipple. Put the other end of the pipe into a jar to catch the waste fluid. Put some thick grease around the base threads of the bleed nipple, this stops air being sucked in via the threads whne the nipple is slackened off. Loosen the bleed nipple by 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate slowly depress the clutch peddle. When he has reached maximum travel have him hold it there while you turn the bleed nipple a third turn back to tight. Have your mate release the clutch peddle, clutch fluid from the master reservoir should now fill the the master cylinder. Have you mate press the peddle a quarter way and then release the bleed nipple a 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate depress the clutch peddle all the way to maximum travel. Again tighten off the bleed nipple before releasing the clutch peddle. Keep doing this process until no more air bubbles can be seen in the fluid in the pipe attached to the bled nipple. Every four cycles or so check on the fluid level in the master reservoir and keep topped up with fresh fluid. When everything completed tighten the bleed nipple, it is not necessary to tighten the hell out of it as at some point you may need to do this again. Wipe everything down pump the clutch peddle a few times to be sure of correct operation and no leaks.

No tension on clutch peddle


That sounds like it could be... I'm assuming the bearing slipped off of the fork, and that would give you this condition, see if you can look in through the rubber boot at the fork to see this.
