Clutch Pedal on the Floor

driving my f150 tonight when suddenly the clutch limply dropped all the way to the floor. I searched around and found that it could be slave/master cylinder, broken clutch cable or retaining clip. has this happened to anyone else? what caused it?

It should be a hydraulic clutch so did you check the fluid? Did you check the linkage off the master cylinder to the pedal? Does the trans have fluid all over it?

If it was working fine one minute and went to the floor the next I'd suspect you probably broke the plastic line or the linkage on the pedel shaft. Allthough it could be possible, usually when a slave or master cylinder goes out it will leak the fluid out and gradually quit working.

Im hoping this is what happened. According to the former owner the clutch and related parts were replaced about 1.5 years ago.

Breaking the pieces of the pedal assembly is not a fun process.

that happened to me. i bet your cylinder pushrod either came off the pedal lever or the eye broke off of your cylinder pushrod.

Stupid UAW, i thought that was about the stupidest thing i've ever heard!

Had that issue before. First for me the slave on the side of the trans (well for me) fell off. then it started going through those 60$ hard to find plastic lines. and from my searching most auto stores dont have them and they have to be obtained right from ford.

I got a steel line now and you wont find many of those, kind of like 1 of a kind. as i been told that they dont make them in steel brake lines. just hard plastic.

All those above situtations the pedal went straight to the floor. took me a month to get the damn thing fixed right.

This was it. The retainer deal that holds the pushrod on the pedal lever disintegrated and the push rod popped off. 10 seconds and a .99 cent bag of rod nuts solved the problem. 199,150 miles and still goin' strong. I love my truck. Thanks guys...

fyi, i used washers and a pin to hold the pushrod on the pedal lever after my retainer disintegrated. I don't know if it was my setup or inevitable age, but soon after the plastic eye on the pushrod broke. i had to get towed on that one.
