You may be right on the aftermarket quality concern.
As big a pain as a failed slave can be I would suggest an OEM or equivalent part.

You moght want to flush the hydralic system also

Suzuki reno 2007 clutchs linking

IF you have been using aftermarket cylinders then they are inferior to genuine units in that they do not have the cylinder infused with an anti wear property . If you re-kit the cylinder and hone out the wear marks this coating is removed and the cylinder job will not last.. That is why new car parts last longer then replaced units. . Use a genuine part and check that the piston push rod is aligned with the throw out arm because if there is a misalignment then the piston is pushed hard into the cylinder wall promoting rapid wear. I fail to see the logic in replacing a car for the cost of a slave cylinder. . When you get a genuine cylinder then before fitting it pull the rubber boot off and fill the boot with rubber grease as this will lubricate the piston in the cylinder and keep dirt put.

Clutch master cylinder hydraulic line removal

Need to know year and engine size. I know that the 1999 Dakota 2.5L clutch hydraulic system comes as a pre-charged, completely sealed system including the reservoir, master/slave cylinders and the connecting lines. There is no means of disassembly. If you use aftermarket parts, you must buy the entire aftermarket set and assemble and bleed it.

1996 Bronco manual transmission hard to shift

You have a m5 (mazda 5 spd) transmission. Same thing that is in my 96 f150 4x4.

Ford had a problem with the slave cyclinders on thoes trannys. The slave is mounted inside the bellhousing and wraps aroung the input shaft, eliminating the need for a fork.

I am willing to bet my next paycheck that you have brakefluid inside the bellhousing.

Ford has a revision on that slave cylinder. because there is no dust boot on it, clutch material gets to the seal and tears it up, and because of the heat the seal will fail.

Replace your clutch, Flywheel (will have brake fluid burned into it), Slave cylinder, and possibly the line going to the slave (sometimes the realease locks up).

Make sure you get the slave from FORD, it is around $100.00, about 2x as much as anyone else but well worth it. I have not found anyone but ford make it with the boot and upgraded seal. If you get one from a parts store it will only last about 3 months. I tried, first one went out in 3 months, had it warrentied, then second only lasted 2.5 months. I finnaly brokedown and paid the extra for a FORD and it at 11 months it is still going strong.----------------------------------------------------

Clutch for a 1993 civic ex

Could be your slave cylinder again,sometimes they don't last long,had one only last 10 months,go check your clutch master cylinder's fluid,if out,then slave cylinder is bad and should show signs of leakage.Another thing it could be if slave cylinder is good,then check the clutch master cylinder.

A friend has a 94 v-6 5-speed camaro thats giving him fits, started as a usual clutch r&r. re-surfaced fly-wheel,complete aftermarket clutch kit along with new master& slave set-up also aftermarket...

I was looking in the service information for G.M.and they do not say anything about using a power bleeder.They just manually bleed the system.Maybe this is what you need to try.I am a G.M. technician and I never remember using a power bleeder when replacing and bleeding a slave cylinder.The bleeding is not the same as bleeding a brake system.I also remember being able to get the complete the complete master cylinder and slave as an assembly and it was already bleed.All you had to do was install it.I`m not sure if it is still available as a complete assembly.But I believe your right in saying there is still air in the system.Hope this helps.Let me know what you find out.Good luck.

Good or bad thing to do

if there is a kit made for it and u are familiar with how to rebuild a hydraulic cylinder then no problem unless the cylinder bore is pitted or badly scored, in that case it is not rebuild-able. U will need a cylinder hone to do this, available at any parts store for about $10
