I replaced the clutch 8 weeks ago had no issues with the R&R but getting the fluid level right has been a MAJOR problem, recently i checked the gearbox fluid level and had none left. I refilled it and cleaned the transmission to check for leaks, the only place fluid is leaking is at the filler tube. maybe the vent tube is plugged or someone else has a better idea

clutch fluid level droppin means that ur clutch master cylinder is leaking,u can check by looking inside car where pushrod goes thru firewall to see if its wet with brake fluid where rod comes thru wall inside car, a wet ,stained carpet.the other possibility is ur clutch slave cylinder located at side of ur transmission,usually drvr side is leaking fluid.if this is the case u will notice clear brake fluid at the bottom center of ur trans,right where it butts up towards ur engine. anyhow its a good idea to replace both pieces at same time to avoid any further issues with clutch pedal. good luck hope this helps
First, Iam not a fan of flushing a trans. Owned a trans shop years ago.
You may have caused some solenoid issues, with the clutch material and cooler sediment.
Work on the ABS,TSC issues. Wheel Speed Sensors may be going and just a coincidence, a couple weeks later.
Make sure the fluid is correct for your vehicle and at the correct level.
I pray you didn't go to one of the Quick Lube Franchises.
the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.
you mean the clutch pedal? when asking questions it helps to tell which engine, trans, 4wd, 2wd, which pedal, what you have checked, ect......... ck the clutch fluid level ,you will need to replace the clutch master and slave cylinder, the trans will have to come out.
Check the clutch master cylinder for fluid level, if it is full and your clutch pedal feels fine, then your clutch probally needs replacing. There is a 1% chance it could be the throwout bearing fork, but trans will still need to be pulled for repairs.
no, there is no clutch adjustment. the clutch is hydraulic, and self adjusting, there are several things that can go wrong with these. with normal wear the fluid can run low allowing air into the system, causing a weak peddle. they can also develop leaks in the master and slave cylinders resulting in fluid loss also causing a weak peddle leading to an inopperative clutch. check the fluid level in the clucth master cylinder(next to the brake master cylinder. if it is empty, refill it(it takes brake fluid) then cycle the clutch peddle a few times and check for leaks. if there is air trapped in the line the clutch will need to be bled. there is a bleeder screw on top of the slave cylinder, bleed it just like bleeding brakes.
