Why won't a slave cylinder hold pressure?

You will see a white plastic retaining ring where the line connects to the transmission. Do not remove this, but instead push this in evenly toward the transmission while pulling the hydraulic line away from the transmission. One of Ford's "better ideas".

If the slave cylinder wont build up pressure and you've tried bleeding it and the master cylinder and the slave cylinder is good then what would make it not work?

a leak in the pressure line could do it. are you sure the seals in the cylnders are good? Is the slave not holding pressure, or is the master not building pressure? How did you bleed it? it makes a difference. Also, if the master or slave cylinders weren't bench bled before installation, it can take a very long time to bleed all of the air out of the cylinders.

Why wont your manual car go into gear after changing clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder?

Will it go into gear when the engine is off and the vehicle isn't moving? If so, it could be a problem with the pilot bearing or possibly the clutch slave cylinder wasn't installed properly. Check it for air bubbles. you may need to bleed the hydraulic line to the slave cylinder.

No, they break the first time you hit the clutch. They are there to help line up the slave cylinder push rod with the throw out arm.

What is wrong with a 2001 manual Honda civic dx when it wont shift gears?

If when the car is not running, you can put it in gear and the car will hold itself, it is most likely the slave cylinder on the transmission bad. Could be the master also, but the slave is much more likely to go out. Open the bleeder screw on the master and pump the clutch once. If fluid is pushed out, it is almost certainly the slave that is bad.

How do you know if its the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder thats broken on your 92 ford ranger Its still runs but wont move at all it just started going slower and slower and then it stop?

This sounds like it is the clutch itself, not the master or the slave. If you can put it in gear and it doesn't move, it has to be the clutch worn out. If it were the master or the slave, it would grind when you tried to put it in gear.

Your dodge wont go in gear with motor running can turn off then put it in gear clutch seems to have a good pedal?

If it has a hydraulic clutch, it is probably the slave cylinder. You could still have pedal but the slave is letting the fluid past the seals. Have someone watch the slave while the clutch pedal is pushed.

Is there a way to bleed my clucth on my 97' Mazda 626?

Depends if You have A hydraulic Clutch or not and are you doing this because you have No pedal or you just changed something . If it is hydraulic here is What I would do First GET a helper and then check and make sure you have fluid in the reservoir then Open bleeder on slave cylinder and have your helper press down on the pedal And hold it YOU should see fluid come out and then tighten bleeder and have helper release pedal repeat until you get some normal pedal and if this wont work you may need a new slave cylinder or clutch master.

You cant get the clutch bled after you replaced the slave cylinder on a 1994 ranger it wont bled still has air in it?

this can be a problem,first you have to press the pedal about an inch do this several times,wait about an hour do it again.....if this doesn't work,it has to be power bled. you transmission shop can do it for you..... I had the same problem. The problem is the cylinder slants down toward the front and that is where the reservior and line connect. There is no good way to get all the air out while mounted to the firewall. Solution: unbolt from firewall with lines and reservoir attached. Tip the cylinder up in the front and use a vacuum bleeder at the slave cylinder.

What can be wrong when there is gas in the oil and the car wont start?

An injector is probably sticking and causing "wash down". Gasoline can then leak past the cylinder walls and get into the oil. That much fuel in the cylinder will make it impossible to start the engine. I'd also check the fuel pressure regulator

When you start your car in the morning it wont stay running you have to hold the gas down What is wrong?

If your car has the check engine on it could be your fuel pressure regulator located on your fuel rail..
