The clutch master cylinder is in your engine compartment , the hydraulic clutch slave cylinder is inside your manual transmission bell housing
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.
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.
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.
At least the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder can be replaced at any time.
First you need to find out if your slave cylinder is leaking clutch fliud.check lines to slave cylinder from master clutch cylinder if no leaks most likely master clutch cylinder bad.
In the master cylinder
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.
Probably the Clutch Master Cylinder or the slave cylinder.
no. the clutch master cylinder is under the hood, typically near the brake master cylinder, and the slave cylinder is underneath, connected to the fork and throwout bearing on the transmission.
This is a hydraulic master and slave cylinder clutch, there is no adjustment. Check for a leak in the system, a faulty master or slave cylinder, or wear on the clutch plate.
After you have located the clutch slave cylinder, have someone depress the clutch pedal. You should see the piston of the slave cylinder extend somewhat. If it does not, either the slave cylinder is bad, or the master cylinder, or, there is not enough brake fluid in the system for it to operate properly. Check the level in the master cylinder. If the slave cylinder is leaking profusely, it is probably bad.
Remove clutch cable connection and then remove slave cylinder line from master. Then unbolt slave master and remove it. Follow same procedure in reverse order.
The Slave Cylinder and the Master Cylinder control totally different systems. The Slave has to do with the clutch, and the Master has to do with the brakes. They have nothing in common.
The primary difference between a master and a slave cylinder is which one make the other one work. We operate the master cylinder to make the slave cylinder work. The master cylinder on a hydraulic clutch is actuated by pushing on the clutch pedal. The hydraulic pressure then makes the clutch slave cylinder move and it pushes out to give the throw-out arm a shove. This will disengage the clutch from the flywheel (by actuating the pressure plate). the master cylinder is on the fire wall its the main one, when you push on the brake pedal down it pushes on a rod in the master sylinder. the wheel cylinders (slave) are on the dram drums. they push the brake shoes to the drum
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.
Bad clutch slave cylinder or failed soft hose from master to slave cylinder.
I would suspect a weak clutch slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder which may be preventing the clutch from disengaging fully; The slave cylinder is connected hydraulically to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master is where you add fluid.
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.
If you're POSITIVE the clutch slave cylinder isn't leaking, there's only two other places it could come from. The clutch master cylinder or the hydraulic line in between the master and the slave cylinder. Maybe I'm confused. Isn't the clutch Master cylinder the one that the owner would check, and the slave cylinder inside the transmission?
The clutch parts that wear out would be the clutch master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder. Replacing the clutch master cylinder requires disconnecting the hydraulic line, unbolting and removing the master from the vehicle, bench bleeding the new master, install the new master then bleeding the system. Replacing the clutch slave cylinder requires removing the transmission assembly. I would recommend purchasing a shop repair manual for that vehicle if you want to DIY.
clamp the line to the slave cylinder and mash the clutch pedal. if the pedal gets hard to push,the slave is bad. if the clutch pedal goes down slowly with moderate pressure,the master cyl is bad clamp the line going to the slave cylinder. meant to say that in the previous answer
If it ain't the clutch itself then its prob. your slave or master cylinder.
The clutch has two main parts; the master clutch cylinder and the slave cylinder. Follow the line down from the master cylinder to find the slave. Most of the time the slave needs to be rekitted or replaced and then bled. That should fix it.
Does my 1995 Toyota Paseo have a clutch cable
