Check the clutch fluid, if it's low pull back the rubber boot on the slave and check for fluid, if there isn't any check the drivers side floor/firewall for fluid to tell if it's the master. If those are all good push the clutch fork in to tell if there is a problem with the clutch itself.

check fluid level on reservoir and if its full have someone get in car and press clutch in. During that time see if you can see the slave cylinder move in front of transmission. Could be your issue since it may not be engaging, thus the reason why gears are grinding.

If all checks out on those two things then we can move on to something else that might be the issue.

Default Re: clutch has no pressure

My 1.5 cents worth of advise is the slave cylinder for the clutch also is notorious for going out and not giving any pedal pressure. it leaks out side the car onto the ground so may not be as noticeable until it completely fails. Make sure you bleed it well, if their is air in the line it will not compress well. Let me know if you need help.
