2006 chevrolet cobalt clutch issues


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.

New clutch master cylinder new slave cylinder new release fork and bearing new clutch, have bled three bottles through the system and still not enough movement at the slave cylinder to release clutch


Hi,
You need to check that you are actually getting the full length of stroke from the master cylinder.
If you are then you still a captive air pocket in the master cylinder and the only way to get rid of it is to vacum bleed the system from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder.
Check these and let me know, I can give you further information.
Thanks
Jason

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.

Pedal goes all the way to floor and still in gear


YOUR CLUTCH IS NOT DISENGAGING. THERE COULD BE A PROBLEM WITH THE CLUTCH MASTER/SLAVE. CHECK FOR ACTION AT THE SLAVE. ALSO, A BROKEN PRESSURE PLATE SPRING OR THROW-OUT BEARING CAN KEEP THE CLUTCH ENGAGED ALL THE TIME.

Replace brakes. now they go to the floor. bled air


When you fixed the brakes, did you take the lid off the master cylinder. I just wonder if you spilled out your brake fluid. The only reason the pedal should go to the floor is if the brake fluid is gone or the master cylinder is not working. Check the fuse. Check the brake fluid level. The pedal only goes to the floor if there is no back pressure in the lines between the master cylinder the lines to the brake pistion on the calipers. Please give me a good ratin and keep me informed.
