Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero

2002 Olds Alero, clutch went out. Was told the slave cylinder needs replaced. Do I have to remove transmission? And are there instructions somewhere on web?

Clutch pedal stays down. When adding fluid and turn car on, pumping clutch it leaks out.

It's usually the clutch master or slave cylinder that is bad when the pedal drops to the floor suddenly. Check both to see which one is leaking fluid and that's your bad one.

SOURCE: added brake fluid when pedal went to

There is diffinatly a leak in the break system and it is most likely one if not both of your rear wheel cylinders. Need to have it checked out before it gets worse and you end up in a wreck due to no brakes.

Mx 6 clutch bleeding


I've had this happen to me once, as did a friend of mine.
Both times the clutch SLAVE (not master) cylinder needed to be replaced, THEN the system bled.
The MASTER cylinder is the one on the firewall, that's connected to the clutch pedal arm.
The SLAVE cylinder is bolted to the bellhousing (between the engine and the transmission).
BUT, it COULD me the master cylinder also.
Whichever is bad, there should be some fluid leaking to give it away.

Where is the 1999 Saturn SL2 slave cylinder located?


on a manual transmission the Clutch Slave Cylinder is located on the drivers side front of the transmission. You can locate it by first finding the clutch master cylinder on the drivers side of the firewall. Then fallow the plastic line to the front of the transmission.

To remove the slave you will first twist it then pull it out of the transmission.

The clutch slave and mater cylinder are replaced as an assembly.

The cylinder was empty this morning in the 1990 pathfinder for the clutch, pedal went to floor, filled master cylinder and holding fluid but pedal is still on floor. What to do....


you need to inspect the clutch hydraulic system to look for a leak.check in the truck were the master cylinder bolts to the firewall as if the master is leaking out the back it will show up the leak in this area.check around the master under the hood to see if there are signs of it leaking.check at the transmission were the slave cylinder is as this is another place they leak.if you have to fill the master because its empty there is a leak somewhere.you also may need the clutch replaced as the slave cylinder moves out to adjust for wear of the clutch which will lower the fluid level but not cause it to be empty.you will have to bleed the clutch system at the slave cylinder,there should be a bleeder screw to do this.if you find the leak in the clutch system you will have to replace the system as some come complete master lines and slave.some come with just the slave,lines,master as separate components.

My car sat for about 5 months in the yard. Clutch and transmission are new rebuilt. Went to move the car clutch went to the floor and stayed there. What can I do?


Sounds like you either need to bleed the clutch slave cylinder, or you need to rebuild or replace the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. You might want to check with the shop that replaced the clutch and rebuilt the transmission. It may be covered under their warrantee.

The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.

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.

Clutch 'pops' straight to the floor in my 93 300zx


The slave cylinder is replaced simply by removing 2 14mm or 12m nuts on the bottom side of the trans. There is no need for transmission removal.

Remember to point out to the shops that there are two bleeding points for the clutch. On the slave cylinder itself and under the hood on the passenger side. Its right behind the windshield washer fluid fill spot. Sometimes the bleeder is covered with a black cover.
