$600.00 labor !?! Yikes !!
That seem very exessive..

Anyhow - it cant hurt to bleen it and is easy..
There should be a bleed valve near the slave..
Openit and let it drain not touching the peddel.. Do not let the fliud empty.. Keep adding fliud as its draing..
Once you feel you have exchanged all fluid tighten bleed valve and top off fluid..

Hi i just put a new master cylinder a month back now today my clutch felt hard and when i put it in reverse heard a broken sound clutch went flat and oil came from the master what can the problem be


Umm...

A mechanical 'breaking noise' doesn't sound good. It's hard to diagnose a problem online without being there to see/hear the vehicle. But .. it may be that your clutch pressure plate has broken/ release/throwout bearing has broken?

It's difficult to see why the master cylinder should leak - unless it was incorrectly fitted in the first place?

Just to check ... The master cylinder is in the engine bay/compartment and is where you top up with clutch fluid. When a master cylinder fails it usually results in no pressure at the clutch pedal, not a leak.

The clutch slave cylinder is the one that does all the work. When you press the pedal hydraulic pressure is sent from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder - which then pushes the release/throwout bearing against the clutch pressure plate and 'disconnects' the driven plate .. allowing you to change gear.

The slave cylinder is the one that does all the hard work - it is located somewhere where engine and gearbox mate together, usually at the bottom right/left. It's usually the one that fails/leaks. It's quite easy to replace..

I don't think it is anything to do with reverse gear. It's more to do with the clutch pedal being depressed - and, I would suspect - something has failed.

The link below is generic images of a clutch:
clutch diagram Google Search

Basically, a clutch is 3 parts. There's the 'pressure plate' which bolts onto your flywheel. The pressure plate is a 'spring'. You depress the clutch pedal and the release/throwout bearing presses onto the centre of the pressure plate causing the 'fingers' - the springs - to bend back and take pressure off the driven plate - which is the link - the drive - between engine and gearbox.

If you have a leak your clutch will not work. This causes a 'grinding/crashing' noise when you try to change gear. The first thing you should do is check where the leak is coming from and do something about it.

The 'noise' that you mention may be due to the fact that the gears are 'grinding' as they try to mesh together without the use of the clutch.

The first thing you should do is check why there's a leak. It's difficult to see why a new master cylinder is leaking unless it was incorrectly fitted and damaged (pipes incorrectly connected..).

If it's the slave cylinder that is leaking - replace it. Easy job.

If Master cylinder and slave cylinder are ok - you have to look at your clutch unit. A clutch is always replaced with 3 parts ... throwout bearing/pressure plate and driven disk.

Where is slave cylinder located on the motor


The slave cylinder, which is present only on manual transmission automobiles, is located at the transmission bell housing, where it provides the hydraulic pressure-to-mechanical pressure conversion that actuates the clutch fork to disengage the clutch plate from the pressure plate.

Replaced the clutch (clutch disk & pressure plate), clutch master cylinder, release bearing, and slave cylinder. Took it out for test drive and the clutch is slipping. Not sure how to fix this. Can anyone...


I would check the old slave cylinder against the new, check they are both the same size and that the new one isn't shorter, failing that it would mean taking the box out again and checking the old units against the new, ie height of pressure plates, depth of release bearing etc. Regards Mike

it could be either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder,it could also be the clutch pressure plate check the master & slave cylinders first because if it's the pressure plate the gear box will have to be removed to replace the pressure plate, even if you are uncertain it is most likely cheaper to replace the master & slave cylinders than it would be to replace the pressure plate.....hope this helps......cheers.

I was driving and the clutch felt weak now it won't go into gear. I bled the cluch and still noting. Do I need a new clutch or throwout bearing?


Check that the clutch release level is actually being moved by the slave cylinder.

If not, replace the slave cylinder if it appears to be leaking. The clutch master may be leaking also, but this would be unusual for a mere 2006. I'd guess its the slave cylinder.

If so, your clutch has failed.

the slave cylinder for the clutch has lost pressure or has gone bad, don't panic!! not yet, pump the clutch about a hundred times, i'm not kiddin! sometimes it happens,you have a hydraulic slave cylinder clutch. they loose pressure if not used often, after you've pumped it 29times look under the driverside door towards motor to see if fluid is dripping down,, if not,, keep pumping until the clutch comes up;;;FEEL PRESSURE WHEN YOU'RE PUSHING CLUTCH IN hope this helps!!

Problems shifting, clutch feels fine.


Most likely the master cylinder. Both usually need replaced together. If one fails the other will most likely soon after. Then bleed system again.

Its either the clutch fluid is wrong or not at the correct levels or it has not been bled correctly.

Have you ever replaced the clutch? If not you may need a new cluctch. It could also be your clutch slave cylinder.

The latter is much less expensive and in some cars very easy to change (i did it myself on an old Mazda Rx-7 and I'm a girl!). Hope these suggestions help.
