Vacuum booster went bad. the round canister behind the master cylinder. not a real tough job, but if you do not have much brake experience i would advise you to have it done

I have a 1987 chevy Cheyenne 1 ton dually w/standard transmission clutch quit working not sure if it be slave cylinder or something else?


Does the pedal go to the floor?? If so it is the master and the slave, they are replace as one unit of repair. If the pedal is very stiff but doesn't go to the floor you have a failed clutch.

The clutch pedal on my '98 chevy silverado is


The clutch in your vehicle is connected to your pedal via a cable system or a hydrolic system. BOTH were available. IF yours is hydrolic, which is doubtful due to behgavior, your cannot adjust it. The cable type is better suited for adjustment. This is done at the end that attaches to the clutchplate at the bracket located on the transmission housing. It will turn to adjust. right tight left lose, it appears that you will need to tighted it a pinch to keep it from "jumping." DO NOT tighten so that the clutchplate disengages, this only a very slight adjustment. good luck

Sudden brake failure


You need to check the fluid in the master cylinder first. if it is empty you have a leak somewhere. if full then probably a bad master cylinder.brakes just being worn will not cause you to lose all pedal. while if they are worn should be replaced if they say you just need a brake job then be suspicous

Replaced clutch but pedal will not move down at all now on 98 chevy 1/2 ton 2wd


Sounds like the release bearing is in backwards! No check valve. If the peddle was pushed, it would pop the slave cylinder piston. 2/ The clutch disc could be in backwards too! Either way, you will need to pull the tranny! Sorry! Frankster016
