About a year and a half ago, we replaced the clutch in my daughters 2007 Chevy Cobalt. The shop replaced the master cylinder yesterday and this morning, there is no pedal again. Any ideas?

Hi most chevy"s are fitted with a concentric slave thrust bearing. This normally creates hydraulic fluid leakage between engine block and gearbox bell housing if not so , check hydraulic pipe lines for leaks. bleed system and be certain hydraulic pressure maintains .If problem persists check and replace clutch master and slave or might be a rare case of a faulty pressure plate.

SOURCE: My clutch pedal wont spring back once i've

A clutch pedal not springing back is almost always an indication that there is air in the system. Bleeding out a clutch is a tedious endeavor to say the least.
I suggest you open up the bleeder screw & gravity bleed the clutch.(This will take a long time as well!)

SOURCE: no clutch response

I would check for a restriction between the Clutch Master Cyl. & the Clutch Slave Cylinder. I don't know if it's cold where you are but I've experienced a few Clutch slave cylinders that seemed to freeze, leak out & then continue to leak until replaced. Undoubtedly due to moisture in the systems. You could have a helper assist you in bleeding the slave cylinder, if you notice resistance at first, there could be something in the line from when the previous Master cylinder went bad that just got lodged in the system & didn't show up until now.

If you have no pressure whatsoever, lodging isn't the issue, attempt to bleed the system & then look for leaks at the boot of the slave cylinder. This will also confirm that the Clutch Master Cylinder is functioning properly.

Good luck

SOURCE: Clutch pedal does not disengage clutch

If the car hasn't been driven for a while it could be corrosion on the fork but I think that is unlikely. I think you are right about the release bearing being jammed in the spring. If the truck has quite high mileage, it probably means a clutch job.

SOURCE: problems with clutch master cylinder on a suzuki

I too am having problems with my 2006 GV clutch master cylinder. I noticed gradually over several weeks the gears and clutch pedal were degenerating and then the cluth gave completely. My mechanic took a look around and said the cylinder is the cheapest one he has ever seen, it's just a piece of plastic apparently! Is going to hopefully get the part this week or next, though he said as it's such a cheap and nasty part its likely it will happen again in the future. Not happy!

SOURCE: i put a slave cylinder

I have always found the slave bleeding instructions inadequate. The way they design the slave with the bleeder away from the piston makes the standard bleeding ineffective. Unbolt the slave and put a wrench on the bleeder nut. Hold the slave in your left hand with your thumb over the pusher. Open the bleeder with your right hand and push the piston into the slave. Close the bleeder, release the piston, and repeat until air is out. This is essentially a bench bleed on the car.

How do I check the oil level in slave cylinder for the clutch on 2006 chevy cobalt


First off, clutch hydraulics use ONLY dot 3/4 brake fluid, if you used any kind of petroleum product you have ruined the clutch master cylinder and clutch slave/actuator(GM's term)cylinder. The level is on the side of the reservoir. If you had to add fluid, you have a leak in the system, probably the slave cylinder first. A master cylinder leak would have fluid on the inside of the firewall, where the master cylinder is mounted(leaking at the back). You bleed clutch hydraulics as you would with brakes.

Master and Slave cylinder will not require often replacements until they replaced it with some cheap ones. With new master and slave, you still need to bleed the system to make sure there is not any air bubbles present in the system that might prevent it from proper functioning.

Just because the master is new does not mean it isn't faulty. If you are certain you have bleed all the air from the system, I suspect you got a bad master.

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.

There is no pressure when i press down my clutch, I just had it replaced about a year and a half ago. It didn't feel like the clutch went?


clutch master or slave cyl. could have gone out so you are no longer releasing clutch thats why no pressure on pedal. look for Brake fluid leak -clutch uses same type of fluid. or master cyl can leak or bypass internally and just not build pressure.

Slave cylinder is what compresses the clutch, the black plastic piece your talking about should pass throughout the firewall and actuate the clutch master cylinder.

2007 chevy cobalt ss need help


Sounds like you are not getting the full throw of the slave cylinder. If you do not disengage the clutch completely it will shift hard, and sometimes you have to double clutch like you would an old truck. Have whoever put in your clutch bleed the clutch system again.

Hope this helps.
