Hi guys,

I just got my first skyline! An R32 GTS-t in gun metal grey.

I am having bother with the clutch engaging and disengaging. I was driving along and I noticed the clutch pedal felt a little odd. It did not have the same resistance throughout when I pushed my foot down. Shortly after tha car would not go into gear. I can hear the clutch is still engaged and when I push in the clutch pedal the clutch is not opening.

I hope this is just a cable or at most a cylinder. Can anyone offer me advice?

1st check the reservoir for fluid, if it has fluid then check the slave cylinder
is operating when the pedal is depressed, if it is operating then check the
clutch release arm is intact,
check the above and let us know what you find, it should only take 10
minutes to do the checks described,
after that its gonna be a bit more indepth!

Thanks for that. Checked it and it was the fluid. I'll get it drained in case of air locks and then fill her up again.

Nice result. But i would keep an eye on the reservoir level you possibly
have a weeping slave cylinder. pull back the rubber boot and look for signs
of fluid loss if it is leaking you will know straightaway.

I don't know what Nissan are like in Ireland but when I had a similar problem & wanted to change both the master & slave cylinder my local Nissan dealer told me they would have to come from Japan & they would be on backorder for a while.

They then told me Nissan had the repair kits (seals springs etc) in stock & I could have them next day.

Luckily my cylinder bodies were ok no wear or scratches & the cheep seal kits done the job.
