Possibly air in the line. There will be a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder. Fill reservoir. Put a hose on the bleeder screw. Loosen the screw. Place the other end of the hose in a clear bottle of brake fluid. Pump the clutch until no more bubbles come out of the hose. Tighten the bleeder, and fill the resevoir again.

2002 toyota celica clutch is there an adjustment or is it hydraulic?it also smells like burning clutch?


its a hydraulic clutch. the burning smell could be a sign that the fluid in the master cylinder is low and there isn't enough pressure being applied to the flywheel, causing the clutch to slip. if the clutch disengages at near the end of the pedals "throw", as you disengage the pedal, than its a sign your clutch plate needs to be replaced. but to me it just sounds like a hydraulic pressure issue.

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.

Clutch relaeasing late


Now you have gone off and confused me. Is it RELEASING late or is it ENGAGING late? Releasing at the top of the pedal is releasing early and engaging late. When you replaced your clutch, did you resurface or replace the flywheel? Makes a BIG difference. I usually recommend master cylinder replacement at the same time the clutch, pressure plate, nflywheel, throwout bearing, pilot bushing or bearing and slave cylinder is replaced. That is the only way to guarantee a trouble-free clutch relacement. The original clutches usually last over 100.000 miles (depending on how it is driven) The replacement clutches will not last nearly that long if a COMPLETE job is not done.

I get undersold on my clutch jobs all the time. But I also get many of those customers back when the other shops do a poor job (clutch, pressure plate, and maybe, a slave cylinder) and the car needs a clutch again in just a few months. It has been a LONG time since I have had one of my clutch jobs come back to haunt me. Sometimes you get just what you are willing to pay for.

1998 Ranger 2.5 , 5 spd. Clutch has never given me trouble til about an hour ago while i was in town my clutch felt funny and was slipping bad. I didnt smell any burning clutch so i tried to baby it home....


No, the manual shows independent systems. Seems like a coincidence, but your brakes are leaking and your clutch plate has failed. Is there still stiffness in the clutch pedal? Better look for where the fluid's leaking out...

When clutch pedal depressed clutch does not move away from fly wheel started 2 1/2 days ago. is cluth hydraulic or cable? thanks ray


in a car this 'new' prob. hydraulic. check clutch fluid reservoir- should be near brake fluid res.- will be smaller- if fluid is low, or empty- may be clutch master cylinder, or clutch 'slave' cylinder is leaking. check for leak under car, should smell like 'brake' fluid. if your brake master- both reservoirs are to the full line, and there's fluid under car, close to where clutch master is located, or near front of , or side, of tranny- then it's a clutch problem of some kind (as if you didn't already know this!!) relatively new vehicle (by my standards!), should have hydraulic clutch.
do you mean- when you depress the clutch pedal, it goes to the floor, and you can't shift into any gear??
should have asked this first! front wheel drive or rear? i'll guess front wheel drive. may have hyd. fluid leak in master or slave. (apologize for 'terms', but as 'male & female connectors', it's traditional, non-racist and non-sexist nomenclature!!) gotta' be careful, in the 21st century!! if there are, as i stated previously, 2 similar reservoirs, close to each other, then you prob. have hydraulic clutch. may need 'master' rebuilt, or replaced, or 'slave' replaced-it can be rebuilt, but prob not cost effective!
sorry to be 'long-winded/ texted', good luck!
