So we are talking manual transmission clutch operation here?

Your master cylinder is located on the firewall, on the other side of the clutch pedal. Your slave cylinder is located next to the gearbox bell housing.

The slave cylinder:

SOURCE: leaking clutch fluid Where is the slave cylinder"..I have been told to look at the slave cylinder because I do not see fluid under the car.

Slave cylinder should be on the left side of the bellhousing (follow the line from the clutch master if necessary) If you don't see fluid but you have lost some, also check where the rod from the pedal goes through the firewall to the master...they often leak there and will not drip on the ground.

SOURCE: lost my clutch in my saab 9000.. petal goes 2 the

if the fluid hasn't gone down, then likely no leak. therefore suspect either a mechanical linkage problem, or a by-pass problem.

Start by checking the linkage to the master cylinder to make sure that the pedal is actually actuating it.

Other possible causes are:
air trapped in the system which will give a spongy feel to the pedal;

fluid by-passing the piston, I'd expect that if the by-pass was in the slave, the pedal would have some resistance.

you can bleed the clutch system but need something like a radiator pressurising pump to pressurise the system (pump once or twice only to avoid over-pressurising! and don't let reservoir get empty) Otherwise it's just like bleeding brakes.

Hope this helps, if it does please give me a "thumbs up"!

Thanks

2006 honda civic 5 speed manual trans engine surges when down shifting from 2nd to 1st


Greetings & salutations Robert Avila,

(First question on FIXYA... Welcome).

Your engine surging and what gear you
"DOWN-SHIFT" to ... ought have very little in
common save for one condition (I can think of)...

Your clutch RELEASE is MARGINAL..!!

Check your master/slave clutch cylinders to see
if there is any leakage (fluid might also be low)...

These are not EXPENSIVE and USUALLY fail
in pairs...

If the surging happens with the clutch released... that
is a WORN CLUTCH DISC (replacement time)...

NEVER EVER ever let the weight of the transmission
be SUPPORTED by the input shaft...

You will be proud.

Wont stop ,clutch diegnosous?


Adjust the clutch, Bleed the master and slave cylinder if fluid is low,
check for leaks at the slave cylinder ( may not be visible ) if you are loosing fluid or the level is always low it will require a mechanic to diagnose, Slave cylinder may be inside the transmission,

Cant locate clutch cylinder 1988 Honda accord lx 5 speed trasmssion


If it is a hydraulic clutch, and not cable operated, there will be two cylinders. A clutch master cylinder will be mounted on the firewall next to the brake master cylinder. One steel line will go from the master cylinder down to the slave cylinder bolted onto the transmission housing where the clutch lever extends out of the housing. Other than bleeding the slave cylinder, no adjustments are necessary on hydraulic clutches. Cable operated clutches have an adjusting mechanism to take up slack when the clutch disc wears. The adjuster will be inside the engine bay.

UNless you have a lot of knowledge available to you ( friends with mechanical knowledge ) this is a job best left to a shop to be done. The time to to replace should be less than 4 hours labour plus cost of clutch kit including throw out bearing

Where is the slave cylinder on a 2004 kia rio?


Should be on the front side of the transmission, where the trans and engine connect. Follow the line from the master cylinder (should be next to the brake Master) down to the transmisson, it will lead you to the slave. It should look like a roll fo quarters with a plunger sticking out that attatches to a lever that goes inside the bell housing.
