If you mean the brake slave cylinders, yes, prefilling is recommended by the re-manufacturer.

Where is the piece to adjust the clutch?


why not post the symptoms, and not guess
post those and we can do simple tests.
like is the clutch fluid dropping day by day?

the slave fails first. on all hydra. actuated clutches.
the loss of fluid happens as you drive, and UNSEEN.
time or money?
time is precious. replace both mC and slave.
lots of time, no cash? see if MC leaks down either side of fire wall
No leaks, slave is bad. 99%
IN most cases both are bad. (or one is totally bad and other near that) yes, it is an analog word. good bad, weak, etc.

here , ill look yours for you.
i did, USA data, so....
some have hydraulic and others cable
so why not just look, first.
really looking is always first. so you can ask , perfect questions.

now my 2nd questions (cable, the hydra version does #1 automatically)
1: adjust cable slack
2: adjust pedal height,
3: adjust clutch switch.
there are 3 adjustments, id bet you dont know that.
its in the FSM if you read it (

now the red arrow. Me guessing cable and me guessing #1

Pre-fill Oil Filters

Alot of gear heads and racers use this, Before you go about changing your engine oil, Always pre-fill the new filter with fresh engine oil, just point the filter up with the center hole upwards and fill with the oil your using for the change. I usually prefill my filters for a few days before the change you will need to top off the filter with new oil because the oil soaks into the filter medium, just before installing the prefilled filter pour out any remaining oil from the filter back into the fresh oil bottle.This is done because not all filters install up & down. It will save a large mess. For filters that install horizontal, Why you ask would I prefill the filter? The reason is that not all the old oil drains out of the pan and block and various passages, that old oil is then pumped directly into your new clean filter shortening it's usuable life span. This will work with all filters even the filters without a casing, some motors use filters w/o a steel casing, like some hyundai engines. Just cut the top of a milk jug or another container that will hold enough oil to submerge the filter completely and soak for 3 days or so. This filter needs to drip after removal from the oil bath before installing, just pick it up and let it drain a few minutes.And install as usual. I use this method for many years now, It will work for you to.

Thermostat location

It should be at the end of the radiator hose coming from the top of the radiator back to the engine, look for where the hose meets the engine. That thing that the hose is attached to, unbolt it. The thermostat is under it. Make sure that you clean all the old gasket off both the gooseneck and engine. Use sealant to seal the gasket, follow the directions. Make sure the spring side of the new thermostat faces into the engine, and make really sure that you prefill the engine with fluid BEFORE you put the thermostat on.

How to find 1996 clutch slave cylinder's location

old post but there are 2 post now.
FSM quote:
On 1996-99 vehicles the slave cylinder is called a concentric slave cylinder. It is located on the inside of the transmission bell housing on the input shaft. Removal of the transmission is required to replace it. It directly engages the clutch release bearing.

I have a 97 eclipse RS and when i went to push the clutch pedal in it doesnt wanna open or release, it wont go into gear...

check the clutch master cylinder to be sure it has fluid in it... then check the clutch slave cylinder to be sure it is moving freely.

The clutch pedal is rock hard won't go in too gear checked the clutch master cylinder and thats ok, so do you know what the problem is.

Possible solution! Daewoo Lanos 98-99
Had the same problem suddenly the clutch pedal went rock hard!
The clutch was around 3 months old.
Mechanic checked - Master, Slave, Clutch Components, and inside the box, all looked okay.
Turned out the top arm of the clutch pivot rod had twisted, replaced pivot rod around AU$100.
Fixed Problem!

Was I ripped off? Service shop charged about $400 on top of service to replace "cracked oil filler tube" and "plugged clutch slave cylinder." I was remiss in not asking to see when the adviser advised of...

plugged slave lol that sounds iffy if you ask me / they work or they dont / how was the clutch before you went in ? did it feel soft or normal ? if it was soft and easy to push then it is possible.but i've been told to change that you should get a sealed system, master and slave all in one, pre bled and ready to . so i'd think twice taking it back to that shop.ya i'd say they hosed you on the clutch work if it didnt need it before you went in.
