Leaking brake fluid

My car is leaking brake fluid from what looks like just UNDER the end of the end of the slave cylinder not the cylinder it self , i know this is the slave cylinder because i have bled it numerous times, and got it replaced but i have to constantly refill the fluid and today it had all drained out so now the clutch pedal has no pressure? How can I remedy this myself i really need to drive or i could lose my job

Get a new seal and remove the cylinder. I also recommend silcone gasket around the cylinder. Check brake lines to make sure that the o-ring gaskets aren't shot.

I have a 2003 Saturn ion 2, I pressed the clutch in and I won't reengage. It acts as if the trans shelled out but I know it hasnt , could it be the slave cylinder?


This type of church uses fluid from the brake master cylinder. First crack to see that the brake master cylinder had plenty of DOT3 brake fluid in it. If so the system has either developed a leak at the slave end which is a ballooning type of hydraulic throw out bearing assembly, or the brake fluid got so low the catch hydraulic system has gotten air in it and needs to be bled. Bleeding this type of system is a pain and needs to be performed by a mechanic who has been trained on this system. Most likely the church slave cylinder is leaking. Look under the vehicle and see if there is a lot of wetness between the transmission and engine.

Why does clutch leak off and wont go into gear 96 toyota tacoma when you push on clutch pedal goes to the floor it wont engage clutch to be able to put into gear


the most likely reason is either the clutch master cyl. needs to be replaced.or the.slave cyl. its mounted down on the transmation under the hood find the resivore for the clutch. check the fluid level.if its low , fill it back up , and look for signs of a leak
you will probally have to bleed out all of the air from the system.its done almost the same way as bleeding the brakes. Good Luck.

Where is the clutch auto adjustment located at on a 98 manual Volkswagen jetta?


you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com

I went to start my car today and pushed the clutch in and it went straight to the floor on my 06 chevy cobalt ls. Can you help?


Check the fluid for the clutch. It has a small master cylinder next to the brake master cylinder. It should use brake fluid. If it is low, top it off. If it goes low again, you'll need to investigate where it's leaking from. You could have a leaking master or slave cylinder.

Replaced whole clutch and slave cylinder on 1996 Toyota T100 2wd 2mos. ago. Today while driving the clutch hit the floor. I did'nt see any fluid leakage. Any ideas.


Sounds like you need to bleed the system again, or you have an air leak. try bleeding again and just check your fittings for tightness.

Are the brake master cylinder and the clutch slave cylinder interconnect in some way? I'm told that the slave cylinder get its fluid from the master cylinder.


The brake system and the clutch master cylinder have the same fluid tank, look at the brake master cylinder fluid tank, on the right hand side about half way up is a hose that goes over to the clutch master cylinder, if fluid level is not above this hose the clutch will stop functioning. If the clutch slave cylinder, mounted on the front side of transmission bellhousing, leaks then the clutch will stop functioning. The slave cylinder has a bleed screw, check these items and fill and bleed as neccessary. Hope this helps, let me know.

I have a 91 nissan d21 and cnt find the slave cylinder or master slave cylinder?


The master is beside the brake master cylinder, between the brake cylinder and the fender. Follow the line down to the trans, it ends at the slave. Now that you know where they are... why do you want to know??

Check around the slave valve under the car on the tranny.
There is only 3 places it could leak
The clutch master cylinder
the pipe from the master cylinder to the slave valve
or the slave valve.

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.
