First, unless you have just done some clutch work you should not need to be bleeding the clutch hydraulic system...that shows that it's leaking. There is nothing inside the bellhousing that has anything to do with clutch fluid, so, the fluid you see is either engine or transmission oil (rear main seal or seal on trans input shaft) Could it be that the clutch slave is leaking and it's running down and dripping at the bottom of the housing? (clean it up and check that)

Hydraulic leaking


Do you have a hydraulic operated clutch? The slave cylinder for a hydraulic clutch would be on or sometimes inside the bell housing. Some ford and chevy trucks put the slave cylinder in a very difficult to reach place-the transmission has to be removed to service the slave cylinder. Most cars have the slave cylinder mounted on the outside of the bell housing. If they leak, replace or rebuild, although those internal slave cylinders I think can only be replaced.

Clutch master cylinder low on fluid is it a sign off a bigger problem???


Only if it has a leak somewhere. Not that many places to check. Sometimes the master will leak, and you will have brake fluid below the clutch pedal.
A single steel line runs from master to the slave cylinder, down on the transmission bell housing. Check the line and the slave cylinder for leaks. If the slave is leaking, probably need a new one. And same for the master cylinder.
Fill the reservoir and check clutch operation. If any air got in the line to the slave, you will have to bleed the slave at the bleeder valve there. They are bled just like brakes, using the clutch pedal.

The slave cylinder will be mounted on the bell housing and will push on an arm that comes out of the housing. It will have a bleed nipple (same type as on the brakes) at the end of the cylinder near the rubber hose attached to the cylinder .. (This is relevant if the clutch is not cable actuated). Regardless of wether it is 2WD --4WD or how many drives it has the clutch slave cylinder is attached to the bell housing and pushes on the clutch throw out arm in the bell housing. The bell housing is that section between the rear of the engine and the front of the gear box and houses the clutch assembly

I have 94 Mazda mx-3 for the past month or so I've been having problems with my clutch and I notice a big wet stain on the floor mat and carpet I assume its the master cylinder or slave cylinder but I am...


It's leaking on the driver's side? That would be the master cylinder bolted onto the firewall. You will have to replace with a new or remanufactured clutch master cylinder. When the seals go out, the whole unit must be rebuilt. The store will give you a discount if you bring in your old one for exchange.
The clutch slave cylinder will be down on the transmission bell housing. Follow the small steel line from the master cylinder. It goes right to the slave cylinder.
Pretty easy to change out the master cylinder. Remove the steel line, unbolt unit from the firewall, then under the dash, there's a rod from the clutch pedal to the master cylinder. Just undo the retaining clip or pin holding the rod to the pedal. When the new unit is installed and filled with fluid, then you get to learn how to bleed the hydraulic clutch at the slave cylinder-the fun never stops.

I have a 1994 Chevy C1500 how would i find a leak for the clutch


The clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall in front of the clutch pedal and has a solid plastic line (hose) that runs directly to the clutch slave cylinder which is located inside the bell housing of the transmission. Unless it has rubbed against something and developed a leak, which is very unlikely, the leak will be at the slave cylinder and drip from the front edge of the bell housing where it meets the engine. This is a common problem with older Chevy trucks and the best fix is to replace the entire hydraulic system with a pre-assembled unit available at most parts suppliers. These units come with the master cylinder, hydraulic line and slave cylinder with a new release bearing (throw-out bearing) and are pre-bled and full of fluid. Replacing just the slave cylinder is a major job and bleeding these systems have been known to drive people crazy. Replacing ALL of it aint much more work and saves your sanity not to mention all those dirty words.12_28_2012_1_54_36_am.png

Clutch looses fluid


The clutch master cylinder and or the slave cylinder are probably leaking. The slave cylinder is on the bell housing of the engine. Check there for an oil leak. The master cylinder is usually under the dash where the clutch mechanism passes through the fire wall.

Mazda e2200 clutch repair: feels like I still have some kind of pedal springback, but without much force. No clutch at all. I assume it is hydraulic, but the only reservoir I see is for the brakes. That is...


Yes, hydraulic--check again--fender side of brake master. Slave is usual cause of leak that eventually causes master reservoir to go dry and start drawing air. Check slave for leak. If leaking, replace slave and bleed system. Make sure to bench-bleed slave before installation by opening bleeder and pouring fluid into line port.

  1. Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
  2. Back off the flare nut on the fluid pipe to free the slave cylinder hose.
  3. Pull off the hose-to-bracket retaining clip and pull the hose from the bracket. Cap the pipe to prevent fluid loss.
  4. Unbolt and remove the slave cylinder.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the bolt to 12-17 ft. lbs. (16-23 Nm).
