1988 Nissan 300zx 5 speed clutch peddle does not

Sounds like you have a leak in your clutch master or slave cylinder. I had the same problem. They are not too expensive at kragen or auto zone. The master cylinder is located on the right side of your engine closest to the driver. Open the cap and check if theres fluid. If its low or empty then there might be a leak. The slave cylinder is located on the passenger side under the car bolted to the transmission. That could be leaking or not working properly. I would replace both if you can. Hope this helps.

Where is the slave cylinder on a 1988 Jeep comanche

I'm assuming you're referring to the clutch slave cylinder... It is located on the input shaft to the transmission. You'll need to separate the ****** from the engine in order to access it.

We are having trouble with our jeep shifting..we have bled the clutch several times and it will work better for awhile but then will start acting up again..we just had the transmission forks replaced about...

You haver a small leak in the seal in the slave cylinder, I believe they sell and aftermarket kit to put ther slave cylinder on the outside, a better system. I believe they changed the design in the early 90's

92 jeep cherokee, manual, gear shift resistance

hi, if when you put it into gear and you lift your foot off the clutch then if your engine revs up without the actual power going to the wheels like when you say the revs change this indicates that your clutch is slipping, i wouldnt say their was a problem with either the cylinder master or slave and i wouldnt say it needed flushing out the problem you are having it that your clutch is slipping due to it being to low.

You need to get the clutch replaced sooner rather than later due to the fact that if your clutch plate shatters due to it being running on the rivets and not the actual clutch plate then this can cause the clutch to collapse and this will then cause damage to the master and slave cylinder and if you was driving at the time you would have no clutch at all and the car would be stuck in gear and you wouldnt be able to tow it as it would be stuck in gear.

You need to get the clutch and pressure plate the thrust bearing changed this will then solve your problem.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

The transmission is a 5 speed and its 2 wheel dr 93 Jeep Cherokee Sport.Where is the slave cylinder in the transmission located?

There are two versions...the easiest to work on is located on the drivers side of the bellhousing. The other version is inside the bellhousing and is part of the throwout bearing (there will be a hose connection going into the bellhousing and a bleed valve protruding from the side of the bell housing on those) This version is used on later models but I have seen it used when engine/trans swaps have been previously made. Clutch master is on the firewall on the left side of the brake master cyl.
