It is a job, The Transmission has to come out in order for it to be changed. The CV axles, sub frame connector, and other stuff has to come out first though. I was able to get the 5 speed transmission out of my 03 cavalier without removing the subframe though, and from the bottom obviously. Took me right about 4 hours to get it out from start to finish with just one person, on the ground in a driveway with just a floor jack and stands, without air tools too

Hope this helps

SOURCE: clutch cylinder inside car is it broke

you have to bleed the air out of it. If there is not fluid leaking from the master cylinder on the firewall.it can leak on the inside of car or the out side if the master cylinder is bad.first make sure the reservoir stays full then open the bleeder on slave cylinder. this is called gravity bleeding. once fluid comes out, tighten bleeder, pump pedal one time loosen bleeder while holding clutch pedal down and then tighten. do this repeatedly until no air comes out. you can pump pedal several times,then hold and bleed however you like but I have better luck with individual pumps. just make sure that the lines hooked to slave cylinder are tight and there are no air leaks. and that the line does not go below the slave cylinder because sometimes air gets trapped in the lowest part of system.

I understand these cars have a sealed clutch system. When they fail you replace the whole kit master,hydrolic pipe and slave (comes in one piece). Search on ebay maybe £45 or so.

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.

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 pedal goes to floor no preasure filled and bled slave cyl same result


Hi:
If you have bled the system, you are down to either having a bad clutch master cylinder, or a bad clutch slave cylinder. You could eliminate the slave cylinder by removing the line and capping it off, and if you have a firm pressure on the clutch pedal ( don;'t try to push it down, just check for pressure!) then your slave cylinder is bad. If you cap off the line, and bleed the system, and the pedal still has no pressure, then your clutch master cylinder is bad!

I believe my slave cylinder is internal on my 89 z24. Can I change it without pulling engine or trany? Maybe thru the starter hole?


The internal slave cylinder can only be accessed by removing transmission -- suggest you remove clutch assy and check before reinstalling the transmission -- you may want to replace clutch if worn down to rivets.

Cavalier 5 speed shifter or cable wont work


First check the clutch master cylinder to see if it's low on fluid, if it is, use dot 3 brake fluid to fill it, (trust me it's brake fluid, I"ve been working on cars for 51 years.) It's mounted on the firewall right at the clutch.
Check for leaks from the master cylinder to the slave valve ( which you have to get under the car to do so). If the master cylinder was empty, you'll need to bleed the system after filling it. On the valve there is a bleeder screw, loosen it, catch the fluid in a jar till there is no more air bubbles, tighten screw up.
If you still have the same problem, then there is either a slave valve problem,or clutch and/or pressure plate problem. It's cheaper to change the slave valve first, then take it from there providing the valve is external and not internal.

1995 Chevy Cavalier Fluid leaking somewhere from hydro clutch line..need diagram that shows the system. There is a small container that is labeled Clutch that was empty.


There are only three parts to the system...the "container" that is the clutch master cylinder, a line between that and the clutch slave cylinder (which is the third part). It works same as your brakes ...step on the clutch and pressure from the master flows through the line to the slave. The slave moves the fork that pushes the clutch in to disengage it. Just like your brakes, any leak in any component will cause it not to work. Re-fill the master and have someone work the clutch and watch for leaks. Also inspect the area under the dash where the pedal rod goes through the firewall. if it's damp there the master is bad. After replacing whatever failed, you need to bleed the air from the system (should be a valve on the slave)
