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?

How far do you fill a master cylinder on 1997 Accord?

To the full mark. Look on the side of the master cylinder and you will see marks. Now if it is low this means one of two things. You either have a leak that needs repairing or your brake pads are worn. As the pads wear the volume in the reservoir goes down. This is why you have to add fluid. Would be a good idea to check the pads before adding fluid. Once you replace the pads the fluid level will return to the full mark.

Your 1999 Mitsubishi 3000 GT shut down on you as you were driving The Clutch pedal went to the floor the reservoir is dry how do you fill it and do you need to bleed the system if so how do you?

First, find out why the reservoir is empty. If you've developed a leak, you need to find out where it is and fix it. You might be able to get by just with a little fluid in the reservoir, but it will be far less headache in the future if you just fix the problem. Check for leaks in the clutch release cylinder. A new one costs about $60. You will need to bleed the system after adding fluid. Attach clear tubing (5/16" inside diameter, about 1 ~ 2 feet long) to the bleeder nipple on the release cylinder and run it to a container, loosen the nipple, have someone depress the clutch pedal and hold it down. Tighten the bleed nipple before the clutch pedal is released. Repeat until fluid runs out with no bubbles.

How can you tell if you got a bad head gasket?

White smoke (steam) coming out the exhaust that has a sweet smell to it.You are always adding coolant to the reservoir but never see a leak. Constant air bubbles coming out if the radiator coolant when engine is running and radiator cap is off. Engine overheats for no apparent reason. A compression test will determine which cylinder/head has the problem.

How do you adjust clutch on 1995 Mazda Protege LX which has to be pushed all the way in and shifted carefully and hydraulic cylinder cannot be located under hood for adding fluid?

your brake master cylinder serves as your slave cylinder resevior. If either your master or slave clutch cylinders are going bad, it may not do any good to try to adjust them. But the slave cylinder has a bleeder screw and the process of bleeding the clutch is similar to bleeding the brakes. In short, open the bleeder screw when clutch is being pressed, and close it when clutch is fully pressed. Have a tube on the bleeder screw going into a jar of brake fluid so you can see bubbles coming out of the slave. The slave is mounted on the bottom of the transmission and the master clutch cylinder is on the firewall behind and below the battery, it has a tube that goes to the lower right rear of the master brake cylinder reservoir to get it's fluid supply.

How do you reset the dash Brake light after adding brake fluid to system of 97 Chevy S10 truck?

First be sure the parking brake is fully released, then if the light is still on and the reservoir is now full, you have air in the system and probably should have the brakes inspected because you shouldn't have had an empty reservoir in the first place.

Does there always have to be fluid in the radiator resivior?

Yes, under normal operation. If you are adding coolant to the reservoir often, you have a leak somewhere. Have a trusted mechanic pressure test the cooling system to determine the cause.

If you make a mistake and put motor oil into your brake fluid could you lose your brakes and how long would it take to go through the system before you have no brakes.?

Good time to replace all the brake fluid. Remove the brake lines from the Master Cylinder and pump the master cylinder dry. Add fresh brake fluid from an unopened can and bleed the master cylinder. Reinstall the brake lines and then bleed all brake lines until you see clean fluid. Keep adding fluid to the Master Cylinder until you are done.Good time to replace all the brake fluid.

How do you put coolant into a radiator?

You don't add coolant directly to the radiator, rather it goes into an overflow reservoir in the engine compartment. There will be a "min" or "max" line (or both) showing the proper level to be maintained. The reason we do not remove the radiator cap anymore is to keep the coolant system a sealed system so that no air can penetrate the coolant systems. By adding coolant through the reservoir (which has liquid in it already which is drawn from the bottom of that reservoir) we are not comprising the sealed system.
