SOURCE: 2000 Dodge Stratus brake lights don't work

the stratus' are well known for the brakelight switch on the brake pedal going out frequently!!
so go to nearest parts house and buy a brakelight switch, that will most likely fix your problem!!

SOURCE: I have replace wheel cylinder on 97 Stratus, bleed

Itsw very unlikely their is a problem with the master cylinder. When you pump the brake's to bleed them it uses up the vacuum and the brakes will be spungy because the servo isnt working properly. After bleeding leave it running for a few minutes then try the pedal it should be ok. If their is a problem with the master cylinder then the pedal would go all the way to the bottom but not spungy. You may need to bleed the brake on the other side to get all the air out of the system.

What to do if clutch seems to be not disengaging

Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level or linkage (if it's not a hydraulic clutch). Look for new fluid leaks around transmission. Otherwise, you may have a clutch master/slave cylinder failure.

I have a 2000 mazda 323 with a manual transmission. i have already change the clutch kit but the gear is still hard to shift

Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.

I have a 2000 chevy s-10 2.2 engine. I have to push all the way to the floor to shift and still have difficulty shifting gears. what might be my problem?

Your truck has a hydraulic clutch , that works just like brakes. A master cylinder connected to the foot pedal sends fluid to a salve cylinder inside the bell housing. If there is any air in the lines , the slave cylinder will not move far enough to disengage the clutch. The lines can be bled of air bubbles much the same way a brake line can be bled. Hopefully this is the problem. A worn out Master cylinder is not too big of a job to replace , however , on your vehicle the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing of the transmission , and replacing it would require removal of the transmission. If you are not loosing fluid out the slave cylinder it is probably ok.

Brake fluid is not reaching the wheel cylinders

Why are you saying that? What was the test that you ran to confirm that the fluid isn't making it to the rear wheel cyl.? A common problem with that car is the bracket that wraps around the high pressure brake line, swells with rust and pinches the line. let me know.

The clutch control system in your car is hydraulic,and utilizes a clutch master cylinder,similar to the brake master cylinder,and a clutch slave cylinder mounted on the exterior of the bellhousing.If the fluid has leaked out,both the master and slave cylinders need to be replaced with new.They should be replaced as a set,as one is just as old as the other.Adding fluid may build the pedal back up,but only temporarily.The clutch master cylinder and reservoir is bolted to the firewall,driver side,and should have a round black cap.The system uses regular DOT 2 or 3 brake fluid for the hydraulics
