Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Clutch will only go in first gear

We had the clutch and slave cyclinder replaced at Aamco, which was a rip off! The clutch will only go into first or second gear with the truck turned off. We were told that there had to be a leak, but we've been unable to locate one. For the past 6 months, the car has been sitting and we're still paying a trucknote. Please help! Are we going to have to have the clutch and slave cyclinder replaced again?

Take to rapidlube or valvoline oil change and see if the trans has oil in it..syncronizers may be stuck without any oil in the gearbox..they know how to check this and be sure they show this to you( call foer you to go under the vehicle with them) remeber this is your car and you are entitled to lok at it...good luck..

SOURCE: 1990 jeep wranger slave cyclinder

The clutch slave cylinder on this model is located inside the transmission bell housing. You would have to pull the tranny to see it.
Bleeding the slave cylinder is a fairly simple process.
Underneath the vehicle on the driver side you will see two hydraulic lines going into the transmission where the tranny connects to the engine. If you have trouble locating just follow the hydraulic line from the master cylinder on the firewall.
One of these lines is actually sticking out of the tranny and has a bleeder valve on the end.
You will need a 9/16 box end wrench and a 5/16 or 1/4 inch box end wrench and someone with you to press the clutch pedal while you are under the vehicle.

1. Top off the master cylinder with clean brake fluid. Also, MAKE SURE you keep the fluid level in the master cylinder topped off during this process. You may need to have a second helper to take care of this so you don't have to keep climbing out from underneath.

2.Hold the line with the 9/16 and loosen the bleeder valve a couple turns or until fluid begins to drain. Have someone SLOWLY depress the clutch pedal to the floor and hold it down to the floor until you tighten the bleeder valve back up. MAKE SURE YOU ARE OUT OF THE WAY OF THE SQUIRTING FLUID WHEN THE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED!!

3. Once you are sure the valve is tight, have them pump the clutch pedal a couple times . Repeat step two until the pedal has a full stroke.

Are you having to add fluid? If yes, look for the leak. If no, It's the clutch master 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: no clutch pressure in pedal

Something isn't put together right or is out of adjustment. At the very least, a spring should be keeping the pedal up.

When you "bled the lines" did you also bled through the slave cylinder?

Hi, My 1990 Nissan Pulsar will not move into gear. When I try to put it into reverse or any gear it grinds loudly? Thankyou Alison


Try putting it in gear with the engine turned off. If you can and then push the clutch in and start it and drive away Ok The clutch may have been stuck. What's more likly is the clutch master cyclinder has run out of break fluild ( it's next to the break master cyclinder but smaller) It needs to be full of break fluild and ussally (DOT 3) . If it's low top it off with clean fluid and pump the clutch pedel alot to get it working again then go back under the hood and llok to see there it's leaking at. Look int the floor as the peals rod comes into the car to connect to the pedal. If it's coming out ther it'll need and new clutch master cyclinder ( they fail alot) and or on the side oif the transmissin there the lines from the master connects to the clutch slave cylinder its leakingf and it can be replaced too ( common , even more common then the master going bad ) Most shops require if their going to fix the car to change them both.

Lost resistance on clutch pedal and hard to change gears also when topping up clutch fluid it does`nt last that much and leaks from slave cyclinder


If the slave cylinder is leaking, replace the slave cylinder. You are loosing hydraulic pressure in the clutch and is the reason why it is not engaging correctly.

I assume that the master cylinder is correctly installed. In that case the master cylinder's piston rod (to which the pedal is attached) is too short or maladjusted.

Clutch problem - battel to get gear lever in to gear


Well cindy for what i read from your question it just sounds to me to be the slave cyl. or master cyl. i got to admit i don't know exzactly what your set up is, but most have a resavor under hood with a line running down to a slave cyl. witch in turn pushes clutch to disengage clutch, now that slave cyl. can bleed off with very little sign of leakage, and from my experance from other cars and trucks thats where the problem lies is in the slave cyl. or what you understand is master cyl.
