My 1987 Mazda B - 2000 pickup hydraulic clutch is sticking how do I fix this problem

    you start by saying that the clutch fork or cable is broken. If it is a hydraulic clutch there would be no cable - correct? If there is a cable where is it? If it has a leak would it be in the master cylinder? Is it a possible seal in the master or how would you check for a leak? When I said it was sticking it is the pedal that sticks down sometimes when it does not it shifts fine. When the pedal sticks it will not shift. I lift the pedal with my foot and it is fine for a while. is the master cylinder the small reservoir on the fire wall? Can the seal be replaced easily or is it better to replace the master cylinder.

    thanks for you help.

Hi,

It is sticking because the spring or the piston in the cylinder is sticking. You need to remove it and dismantle and clean it with a honing bar.

In some case's it is actually cheaper just to replace this with a new item. Then just bleed the clutch fluid.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks

Jason

Clutch fork or cable broken.It might have a hydrolic leak. Check the master in the clutch . The fluid level in the reservoir of a hydraulically operated clutch should be checked weekly and the fluid should be replaced annually because it is hygroscopic and water causes corrosion. The slave and master cylinder seals can fail . Hydraulic clutches are usually self adjusting: The friction material on the clutch plate gradually wears down. The position where the disengagement mechanism begins to take up therefore changes and the clutch mechanism must adjust to compensate. Hydraulic mechanisms rely on the diaphragm to return the hydraulic fluid through the master cylinder and into its reservoir as it pushes the disengagement mechanism and the slave-cylinder piston back. The master cylinder contains a valve to allow this to happen fully but the valve is open only when the clutch pedal is fully raised - otherwise the disengagement mechanism would never operate. Resting a foot on the clutch pedal full-time therefore prevents the clutch from self-adjusting, puts load on the throwout bearing and can cause it to fail prematurely. Similar problems can occur from resting a foot (long-term) on the pedal of a cable-operated clutch. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation

Clutch pedal goes to floor and half works on my b2200 1987 mazda pick-up


If the clutch is hydraulic operated, you need to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder, down on the transmission housing. Bleed it just like you bleed brakes of air in the line-open bleeder valve, someone pushes clutch pedal slowly to floor, close valve, and repeat until fluid comes out valve in a steady stream. Make sure the clutch reservoir is full before starting. It uses regular brake fluid.
If not hydraulic, it would be cable operated. Adjust the cable until clutch pedal is right.

Sounds like the hydraulic fluid may have leaked out of a line or the slave cylinder is leaking, or the master clutch cylinder has an internal leak that doesn't actuate the clutch effectively when the pedal is pushed to the floor.

1987 gmc s15 2.8 litre. Clutch only goes half way


I don't know that specific vehicle, but if its a hydraulic clutch it sounds like either you have a leak and your clutch fluid is low, or the master or slave cylinder could be bypassing internally. Check the fluid level in your clutch master cylinder. If its low, you should top it off with brake fluid and will probably have to bleed the system. Also look for leaks. You can probably find info or a video online of how to bleed the system. Its a bit hard to explain without illustrations or pictures. Not really very difficult to perform. Good luck.

Clutch adjustment


there is no adjustment for a hydraulic clutch, if you have a low pedal u still have air in the system, these are EXTREMELY HARD TO BLEED, suggest you rent a pressure bleeder or have a shop do the bleeding. In any event this is a 2 man job.

No there isn't any adjustment,and if you have good pedal pressure there isn't any point in trying to bleed the hydraulic system.
