Question about Kia Rio
When selecting gears on a kia rio 55 plate, it crunches going into gear. The clutch pedle is right at the bottam, and pushing the pedle into the floor in not quite disengaging the clutch. As you raise the pedle it bites straight away. There is no slipping of the clutch. I am assuming it is a problem with a master cylinder or slave cylinder on the clutch, but wanted advice.
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?
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.
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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the reply. I beld the system about 9 months ago, and it made no difference, could not find any drips and the level does not go down. It is worst getting into all the forward gears (ie 1st, 3rd and 5th) and reverse. Could it be one of the cylinders even if their not dripping? If not, I guess its a gear box out to persue it. Do I need any special tools to take the gear box out if that is necessary?"

Yes, if the pressure plate is bad the clutch peddle can go to the floor and stay there.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your expertise I failed to tell you although the pedle returned to top it still doesnt release the clutch plate all the way "
