Question about 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier
2004 manual transaxle.. No visible signs of leaks, clutch cylinder mysteriously empty. Car shifts normal at 75,000 miles, the fluid had to go somewhere???. Topped cylinder off with fluid and car seems normal. I'm not into taking chances!!! Would rather not pull motor to install new clutch unless I have to! There looks to ba a bleeder near the Transmission housing where the hydraulic line enters the tranny. Will this bleed the whole system?
Help and advice appreciated!
Schematics helpfull !!!
The fluid is going somewhere of course but your clutch lines do not run into the transmission itself it runs to a slave cyclinder that should be on the side of your transmission most likely where you seen that bleeder valve at normally if you can put fluid in the master cyclinder and you can shift gears fine it is your slave cyclinder that is going out if this is so all you have to do is unbolt it from the side of the tranny and replace it. It should only have 2 bolts, 1 line, and a rubber grommet on one end with a rod in it if you take it off just put the new one on the same way just in reverse order. hope every thing goes well.
