Default Nismo Clutch

Anyone have their clutch fail in just 20k miles?

I took my car in for an oil change. Everything seemed fine. I started to leave and the foot pedal for the clutch went all the way to the floor and wouldnt return. After about 0.5 miles I made a u turn to head back to Nissan. Didnt make it far.. the clutch pedal stopped working all together.

They said might be the master or slave cylinder.

Cant believe that it went out that quickly..

No, never has happened to anyone. No slave cylinders has ever failed on a 370z or G37. A simple search will not find any results.

Not unheard of for our cars. The slave cylinder is a poor design, cheaply made plastic POS. You should upgrade to the Zspeed slave cylinder while the dealership has your trans pulled.

Unfortunately common.

FWIW a lot of people go with an aftermarket one since oem is so prone to failures.

If you drove it hard this is not surprising.

yes..

I will have them look everything over. The cool thing is, my friend is the Nissan Mechanic. He takes his time with my car. Thank you for all the replies... The next time it goes out, i am going to replace the OEM parts..

I might even get a better clutch.. I also want better brakes.. i already have warped rotors.

And No, I dont drive it hard. I run the Canyon over here which has a bunch of turns, but I usually leave it in 3rd the whole way..

OP, your problem is common.


And... That's the definition of driving it hard, LOL!

Lol, the manual's number one issue is that CSC, no rhyme or reason. But I wouldn't go OEM on it
