Probably the Clutch Master Cylinder or the slave cylinder.
The clutch gets its fluid from the master brake cylinder reservoir. The master clutch cylinder sits just below the master brake cylinder reservoir and is fed fluid by gravity.
You can't adjust the clutch on ANY Escort. They have hydraulic clutches with a master cylinder and a slave cylinder. However, if the clutch isn't releasing it can be bled of air.
Whenever you are having a problem with the clutch disengaging the engine from the transmission it is advisable to bleed the clutch slave cylinder. If the clutch can't be operated by bleeding the slave cylinder then the clutch master cylinder is gone and should be replaced.
Clutch master cylinder, usually located near the brake master cylinder. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I chose the ( 1996 and 2003 ) Ford Escort owners manuals to look at and they show that the brake master cylinder is also used for the hydraulic clutch
The clutch master cylinder and the brake master cylinder are part of the same system . Both can be filled at the brake master cylinder using brake fluid
Should be right beside the brake master cylindar.
According to the Owner Guide , the clutch master cylinder and the brake master cylinder are part of the same system . The clutch and the brake system can be filled at the brake master cylinder with DOT 3 brake fluid
I have a 1995 an the hydraulic clutch master cylinder is also the brake master cylinder,they both use the same one
The clutch master cylinder gets it's fluid from the master brake cylinder reservoir. The clutch is below the brake and gets it's fluid by gravity. If you need fluid just add to the brake reservoir.
Answer: Normally located down by clutch arm (that sticks out between the engine and transmission). How do you locate it? The clutch pedal depresses a clutch master cylinder on the firewall (driver side). Follow the hose line down to the where the clutch arm is located. NOTE: don't get the brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder confused, its easy if you do not work on cars regularly.
Shared with the brake fluid.
If it does this in all gears, I bet your clutch is shot. Other things that could cause problems are the Clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder.
The brakes and clutch share the same reservoir.
The clutch can't be adjusted. It is an hydraulic clutch. The clutch pedal sends pressure from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder on the clutch. IF you are having trouble with it the thing to do is bleed the air out at the slave cylinder. Have an assistant pump the clutch and hold it to the floor. Then open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder to let the air out of the system. On the final bleed hold the clutch to the floor and close the bleed valve on the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder operates of the brake fluid reservoir. Make sure you keep this full of brake fluid as you bleed the clutch.
it is attached to the bell housing and makes contact with the clutch fork.
The master clutch cylinder is attached to the clutch pedal. When one depresses the pedal hydraulic fluid is forced from the master cylinder through the hard line to the slave cylinder. The piston in the slave cylinder is driven against the clutch linkage thereby releasing the clutch.
I was looking at the 1997 Ford Escort Owner Guide and it shows : " the brake fluid reservoir and the clutch master cylinder are part of the same unit " Both are refillable at the brake reservoir using DOT 3 brake fluid
At least the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder can be replaced at any time.
The clutch pedal assembly has a clutch rod that pushes in on a clutch master cylinder. There is a hydro line that goes from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder.
The clutch does not use oil, it uses DOT3 brake fluid. The clutch cylinder gets its brake fluid from the brake cylinder and is directly below it. Add fluid to the master brake cyliinder reservoir.
The clutch master cylinder is in the engine compartment and the slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch is inside the manual transmission bellhousing
The slave cylinder I think you are talking about is the clutch slave. The slave is mounted under the truck. It will be near the bell housing where it can push the clutch fork. Locate your clutch master cylinder and follow the line down to the slave.
under the hood you should have the brake master cylinder which is larger and a smaller reservoir and this should be for the clutch.
There are two normal causes. The clutch is worn out or there is a leak in the hydraulic clutch slave or master cylinder. To check the clutch, press the clutch slave cylinder down. If the clutch slave cylinder bellows compresses down to the slave cylinder, the clutch is worn out. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level. if this is low, then the clutch cylinder need to be checked. To check for a hydraulic leak in the clutch slave cylinder, remove the cylinder's bellows and check for any fluid. If fluid is present, rebuild or replace the cylinder and bleed the system. To check the clutch master cylinder, check the back the of clutch master cylinder for leaks. If fluid is present, replace or rebuild clutch master cylinder and bleed the system. In my experience, hydraulic leaks occur at the clutch slave cylinder.
