under the hood you should have the brake master cylinder which is larger and a smaller reservoir and this should be for the clutch.
The brake fluid for the entire system is added in the master cylinder container. The slave cylinder does not have its own reservoir.
You don't. You add it to the master cylinder and bleed the brakes.
Yes it does. It uses the brake fluid reservoir for it's operation. If you are having trouble getting it in gear the slave cylinder at the engine needs to be bled.
the brake and clutch are both contained in the same reservoir and use the same fluid, look at the side of the brake master cylinder reservoir there is a fill line on the side of the clear reservoir
no fluid in reservoir due to leaking reservoir or slave cylinder
The brake and clutch fluid systems are supplied by the brake fluid reservoir ( according to the 2001 Mercury Cougar Owner Guide )
The clutch reservoir on a 1995 Toyota will be found on the slave master cylinder. These are located on the firewall of the engine bay.
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.
Sure, but you also need to get the air out of the lines and the master cylinder. Put the slave on, then bleed the clutch keeping a supply of brake fluid in the reservoir.
That line runs from the clutch master cylinder to the clutch slave cylinder. It's not a brake line altough it derives it's fluid from the brake reservoir. You could get it from the dealer or pick it yourself at a salvage yard.
Remember, keep the master cylinder full so you don't suck air into the slave cylinder. Then you put the fluid in the slave cylinder.
It varies with what area of the country you live in. Call a couple of local garages for estimates. Are you sure it needs to be replaced? I have a 1995 Ranger and the slave cylinder leaked until I was left with no clutch movement. I refilled the reservoir and bled the slave cylinder until the fluid ran clear. At first, the fluid was black, but after a while the fluid cleared up and I never did have to replace the slave cylinder. Try bleeding the cylinder first, and see if that fixes the problem.
The clutch slave cylinder in your 1998 Mitsubishi does not use fluid. The clutch slave cylinder is sealed with grease inside of it.
In the master cylinder
Yes you can use brake fluid in the hydraaulic clutch system the cover on the reservoir should be marked dot 3 brake fluid also check for leaks at slave cylinder at bellhousing.
Probably the Clutch Master Cylinder or the slave cylinder.
Come now: we don't call them "slave" cylinders anymore, it's not polite. They are Wheel Cylinders and Clutch Cylinders.But to answer your question: any car with a hydraulic clutch uses brake fluid as clutch fluid, and one reservoir serves both systems.
1. Clutch fluid is brake fluid. 2. The fluid used for your clutch master/slave cylinders is pulled from your brake fluid reservoir.
the slave cylinder is bolted to the drivers side of the transmissions bellhousing,the reservoir for it is on tne drivers side firewall
What reservoir? Coolant? Washer fluid? Power steering? Brake? Slave cylinder?
Crawl under the vehicle and locate the slave cylinder it is usually on the passenger side of the clutch. there is a fluid line and 2 bolts. First remove the hydralic line and then the 2 bolts and the slave cylinder will fall right out. Installation is in reverse order. then get a helper to bleed the clutch. First have the helper pump up the clutch and then you crack open the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. Remember don't let the reservoir go dry Keep doing this process until you get the clutch you like and top off the reservoir and put the cap back on the reservoir
No, the slave cylinder is a typical hydraulic piston; if the system was 'opened' then the fluid would come out.
Not sure of what your question is. Follow this guide to bleed the slave cylinder on a 94 Escort 1. Put a clear vinyl tube over the nipple of the slave cylinder and put the other end of the tube into a small container of brake fluid. 2. Pump the clutch slowly 3 times then hold it down. 3. Loosen the bleeder valve and let the air escape from the slave cylinder. The air will bubble in the fluid container. Make sure that the brake master cylinder is always full of fluid while bleeding the clutch. The clutch uses the fluid from the brake master cylinder. 4. Close the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder before letting the clutch up. Then go through the process again to eliminate all air in the system. When you no longer have any air bubbles coming out of the nipple of the slave cylinder the bleeding has been successful. ' 5. Once all the air has been pumped out close the bleeder valve before letting the clutch back up. Fill the brake reservoir with fluid to the full mark and you are done. Use only DOT 3 type brake fluid.
i do not exactly understand the question. there usually are not problems associated with bleeding the slave cylinder on a 240sx transmission, but i will explain how to do it. locate the slave cylinder on your 240sx under the car on the passenger side of the 240sx. you will need a 10mm open-end wrench to loosen the nut on the slave cylinder. loosen it enough that it spins freely, you do not want to loosen it so much that it comes off. you will need a second person inside the car to pump the clutch. loosen the nut on the slave cylinder, have the person inside the car push in the clutch pedal and hold it down, then tighten the nut on the slave cylinder. repeat this process until there is a steady stream of fluid shooting out of the slave cylinder. then you will need to replace the lost fluid with DOT3 brake fluid in the clutch fluid reservoir under the hood, which is to the top back right of the engine bay.
