I have a 1993 Dodge Stealth that had not been driven for the past 4 years. Recently I have the need for the car and was trying to get it running. I was able to start the engine (got a new battery) but discover the clutch pedal once stepped down, would just stay flat on the floor and not come back up. I can pull it all the way up by hand and it'll stay up but if I step it down, it'll sink down and stay on the floor again. Where should I start? Checking the clutch reservoir and fill if it's low or empty?

The Stealth uses an hydraulic slave cylinder to control the clutch. If you look on the firewall of the engine compartment you should see a resevoir similar to the brake mastercylinder. The system has two main componenets the resevoir and the slave cylinder. A leaking slave cylinder is the more common failure item. You can try refilling the resevoir and bleeding it. The bleeding technique is similar to bleeding brakes. This will only be a temporary fix as the leak is still present.

  • Thanks for the info mikes. I have located the reservoir but was unable to open the cap. It is a screw on or a cork-like cap?

  • The images I've seen online appear to be a twist cap. From the images it looks to be a 1/4 turn to disengage the hooks then lift up.
