Question about 1997 Jeep Wrangler

Replaced slave cylinder, now grinds

My clutch pedle suddenly went to the floor. I was told to replace my slave cylinder, after several problems, I finally got it in, and it didn't pop out... Now the problem is...when you engage the clutch pedel, there is a terrible loud grinding noise and feeling in the pedel. Is the shaft on the slave cylinder in incorrectly? if so, how the HE@! do I make sure it's in properly?

    What do you mean it didn't pop out? Did you bleed the slave cylinder after you installed it?

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.

Selecting gear grinding sound


No year, stated , ouch
the classic m/t (ive blown out many, racing)
the first test for all hydra. actuators,
IS IT losing fluid ? (dropping level?, in the filler top? )
yes, the MC /slave is bad.
no, ? , its mostly good.
these actuators are self adjusting.

if reverse grinds, the clutch is dragging, (acid test)
rev, is a non syncro gear in most cars and loves to grind.
does it, yes? then the clutch is dragging. (only why is the question)
see that logic?, can't blame missing syncro rings, if not there.
on most cars.
if the slave lever does not move 3/4 of an inch, at full pedal depression.
then the mc/slave is bad. (a 2 man test)
so then all posters ask, the same question here.

Q which is it?
Answer.
most times it's the slave. (see that drip there...... bingo)
people rich in time can do 1 at a time.
others , both at once,

if the MC, is dripping front of rear, it's bad.
if the fluid drops every week, you found the problem.
fix it.
if the actuator is good, the clutch disk is cracked or the PP is warped. (PP = pressure plate)
or galling on the input spline shaft to tranny.
lots of ways to fail. but the tests are super easy.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

My '97 Cavalier seems to be having clutch problems. All of the sudden the clutch pedal has started sticking when I push it down and I can hear a grinding kind of noise. Can this just be an adjustment...


It sounds like you have a clutch slave cylinder leak. I just replaced mine about two months ago and only payed about 80$ for a new slave cylinder.

Clutch pedle stays down


if you have a hydralic clutch usually the pedal staying on the floor indicates air in the clutch lines. if so check 4 leaks at the filler and at the slave cylinder. however just bleeding the clutch system may temporarily fix your issue

2000 cavalier clutch pedle goes to floor when pushed and stays there, clutch not working no pressure


You are going to have to replace the master and slave cylinders for the hydraulic clutch, the seals have failed in the slave, but from past experience they should always been replaced as a pair.

The clutch on my car stuck to the floor. I check the reservoir was completely empty. I have a feeling the slave cylinder is filled with air. I'll need to get the schematics to see how to bleed the clutch.


Bleeding the clutch is similar to bleeding brakes. You'd pump the clutch pedal several times to get the pressure up, and then open the bleeder on the slave cylinder (mounted down on the transmission). Repeat and add fluid as needed until no air comes out.

Two things - first off, some cars have more than one bleed point (the Nissan 300ZX is one of those), so be sure there is only the slave cylinder to bleed. Second, if it went right to the floor, something failed - either the slave cylinder or the master cylinder. Changing the slave is relatively easy - usually two bolts and it comes off, you put on a new one, and bleed it as described above. Often the slave cylinder is less than $30, so it's worth it to try changing it if you can't get the pedal to come back off the floor on its own. A clutch master is significantly more expensive and more difficult to change, so start cheap and easy and replace the slave cylinder if you can't pump the pedal to get pressure built up for a bleed.
