Most shops use common software to estimate labor, and having talked to mechanics, they say it almost always overestimates the time. I think there are cases when the car doesn't cooperate--rusted bolts, etc. that the numbers are right, but they should only charge you for the real time it takes and not what the software says it should take.

If you replace both the master and slave cylinder [and I would due to the age of the vehicle] then it is the correct time. The slave cylinder is the easy one but the master cylinder can be tough on this vehicle.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the reply. He only quoted on the master, hopefully the slave isn't additional. It just seemed excessive."

    The "book" shows a time that is the going rate for the work. If everything goes right that is the time that is billed for. However an expert mechanic might be able to do that job in about half the time. That is how shops make money.

After driving for hours the A3 2010 1.9 tdi the clutch stuck to the floor. I stopped and got the clutch up by pumping it with my hand. The process is now repeating itself.


running out of brake fluid from a leaking clutch slave cylinder or a faulty clutch master cylinder
Take it to an accredited brake/clutch specialist shop and have it properly diagnosed

My clutch just started slipping. Is there anything I need to check before I take it to a shop to get my clutch done?


the problem may be a faulty clutch master cylinder that has a blocked compensating port
I would suggest taking the vehicle in for an inspection of the hydraulics or the cable if not hydraulic several quotes fro accredited brake and clutch shops.
if the hydraulics have never been checked / cleaned or changed, I would be looking at that first because even if it ends up being the clutch and pressure plate, an old clutch slave and master cylinder will fail quickly with the added pressure of a new pressure plate.

2010, SWIFT IN WHAT COUNTRY , WHAT ENGINE?
We (usa) dont have them here. 2010
why ask us>? lacking books,

there are cares with a hydraulic clutch for, over 50 years
my 1964, British car had them.
and all fail, as do the worse cable clutches.
why in the world blame the transmission when you know the clutch is no good, (actuators)
why? confused
the MC if it leaks the MC is bad.
if the slave leaks it too is bad.
if any lines leak they are bad.
why not just fix it. and end the pain., odd. post.

you see its bad, and then delay.
why?>
why not find a REAL shop and get them to fix the clutch actuator system.

there is no clutch
no, you meant the CLUTCH will not DIS-ENGAGE
and is bad acuator,
if it leaks
or the slave fails to move 3/4 to 1inch, 25mm. stroke.
as seen here
this is our j18 /20 clutch
see odds and ends clutch here.
http://www.fixkick.com/videos/FLV-all/showtime.html#CLUTCH

see the SLAVE work. that is its only job.
to move, and mover correctly.
if it moves ok, and not leak
then the actual clutch is bad,, (i think not)

the MC for the clutch , fluid levels are dropping
hard fast proof this is failing , MC/Slave or both.
best is to replace both.

my guess this co-mingle words are shared fluid reservoir?
the fill jar? that is trivial if true.

UNless you have a lot of knowledge available to you ( friends with mechanical knowledge ) this is a job best left to a shop to be done. The time to to replace should be less than 4 hours labour plus cost of clutch kit including throw out bearing

your clutch master cylinder is right beside your brake master cylinder. I would advise you to replace the master cylinder and the slave cylinder together. The slave cylinder is on the side of the transmission. The slave cylinder does have a bleeder screw on it after the parts are bolted in place fill with dot 3 brake fluid and open the bleeder on the slave cylinder until fluid starts dripping out. Then tighten bleeder then open bleeder and have someone push down on clutch pedal while the pedal is pushed down tighten the bleeder the release pedal. Repeat this procedure until you get no air and the pedal feels normal and you should be good to go. Good luck!

How to replace the oem clutch master cylinder on a 1988 ford f-150 ,,, where is it located on the truck?,,,


Removal:
1.From inside the cab, carefully pry the clutch master cylinder pushrod and retainer bushing from the pedal cross-shaft lever pin.
2. Disconnect and remove the interlock switch.
3. Remove as much fluid from reservoir as possible and place shop rags under the master cylinder to catch leaking fluid.
4. Disconnect hydraulic line from the master cylinder and plug lines and outlets to avoid contamination and excessive fluid loss.
5. Remove the two nuts retaining the clutch master cylinder.
6. Installation is the reverse of removal exept after installation, bled the system.

!991 Jeep Wrangler clutch pedal loses pressure. I have to pump it to get enough pressure to shift. I keep it full of brake fluid. I can see no leaks. Thanks for any help.


leaky slave or master cylinder - if you have someone listen to the slave cylinder while you press the pedal is should "squelch" if there is air in there, if the slave cylinder doesn't make a squelching sound then the master cylinder or a hydraulic line between the two cylinders is leaking - slave cylinder isn't very expensive but the master cylinder can be rather pricey. and any good parts shop or motor-factor can source or make-up a new hydraulic line if it is the line itself that is leaking.

The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.
