There is a leak somewhere.
your slave cylinder is leaking.or the fitting or line is
Or your master cylinder is leaking.
Either a line is leaking or The slave cylinder is starting to wear out. chances are if you are filling weekly the leak is not major but is big trouble. the is nothing wrong with filling the resivior when needed but if the cash is avalibly you should get it fixed. usally the cylender is from 15-50$ but labor could be a 6 hour job if the transmission is about the housing. do a simple check with a mechanic when you have a chance.
On a 2000 Mercury Cougar : The brake fluid reservoir is also used as the clutch fluid reservoir
most likely the hydraulic unit is empty and needs replace.To the right of the brake fluid reservoir is a smaller black reservoir for the clutch. Check the level If emptyt ot needs replace ----------------------
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.
The 1993 Saturn used a self adjusting hydraulic clutch system on the manual transmission vehicles. As such, the clutch never needs adjustment. If you're having trouble with the clutch, it is most likely because of a worn or damaged clutch assembly.
In regards to your question, the clutch assembly should be the same, the only difference mite be the conector for the clutch line which you can change out with one from an explorer then bolt it in and have fun
no not at all not enough room.if it's standered and you need to replace the clutch you have just enough room to remove and install the clutch remember cut the clutch tool in half
We are having the same problem on a 2000 Corvette, were you able to figure it out?
Check the transmission... the unit doesn't give out usually unless there is a transmission is having a problem too. Either way the transmission has to come out.
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.
On my 2002 wrangler you have to put a fuse in the fuse box behind the glove box. I think it says transmission but this will allow you to start the Jeep without having to push in the clutch.
The new Chevrolette Corvette has an automatic transmission but it also has a paddle shifter so you can get the feel of having to shift. It will help you save on gas and give you more speed if you want it.
I'm assuming you mean the pressure plate on the clutch. It is a time consuming job. The transmission has to come out. Then the clutch comes out. It is about a $600 job to get this done and also put in a new clutch disc. Unless you know your way around transmissions and drive shafts I would suggest having it done.
I do not remember that transmission having bands.I do not remember that transmission having bands.
There is no adjusting these clutches. It uses a hydraulic system to push on the clutch. If you are having problems either there is a problem with the clutch assembly. Its worn out and slipping. Or the clutch slave or master cylinder is leaking, either internally or externally and its not pushing the clutch. If somthing is wrong with the clutch then you might as well buy a kit and replace everything as long as you are going to have the transmission out.The slave and master cylinders should also be replaced with a complete kit. It also saves on not having to bleed the system since the kit is fully assembled and has fluid in it already.
how do you install a hardtop cover from previously having a soft-top 92' corvette?
when driving up hills at lower speed you must downshift the transmission
You could tell if it had a 3 lever clutch or a standard without removing the transmission by seeing if it had a geer shift, if it had a geer shift, it's a standard, if it had a 3 lever clutch you could tell that it is automatic but back then, they were just making those kind of cars, and you'd have to preorder them but now, it's the opposite, having to preorder standards.
The torque convertor acts as an automatic clutch for the transmission. If you are replacing the transmission, I would recommend replacing the convertor too, especially if the trans fluid is burnt or contaminated. If you have a manual transmission, run, there is no torque convertor :)
your clutch is worn out.
Ensuring the cylinder feed reservoir is full...A whitish 'cup' against firewall near the brake reservoir... slide under the driver's side of the vehicle just behind the tire and look up at the tranmission. You will see, on the side of the forward end of the case, an area where the resevior feeds the clutch and directly above that is the bleed scew. Having someone depress the clutch while you open and immediately shut the bleed valve and then repeating the process until you get a steady brake fluid stream(yes, you use DOT3 brake fluid), you will have successfully bled the clutch.

About $2000 if you have a rebuilt put in. More if you have a new one put in. You can get a used one from the boneyard (salvage) for about $550 and it is about $500 labor to get it put in. If you are having problems with the manual transmission, take it to a shop to make sure it's not the clutch that has gone out. It won't be any more or less labor, though, because the transmission has to come out to replace the clutch.
bullet proof.. Occasional Clutch Slave Cylinder problems are heard of but otherwisw. i agree. Tougher than Superman's Kneecaps.
You require a clutch alignment tool. They are called Matra tools. The id number for that tool is Matra tool 529/1. You can't do this at all without that alignment tool.
I assume you have a manual transmission, if so absolutely not. If you're having trouble getting in gear check these things in this order. 1. If you have a hydraulic assisted clutch check the fluid resevoir. It should be mounted on the drivers side fire wall. If you have a older vehicle have the clutch adjusted. 2. If it also squeals when you push the clutch in the throw out bearing may be bad. 3. And finally the transmission synchronizers maybe worn out. Problems like 2 & 3 require pulling the transmission out to repair. A tip is to always replace the clutch and pressure plate when you pull the transmission. You have it out anyway and with the labor that cost you make the most of it.
You CAN"T. If you are having clutch problems then it is time for aNEW clutch kit and clutch slave cylinder too. NO ADJUSTMENT
