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.
At least the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder can be replaced at any time.
In the master 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.
Probably the Clutch Master Cylinder or the slave cylinder.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
