Question about 1984 BMW 3 Series

BMW 325-e4 clutch

I replaced the master brake cylinder about two years ago, i have recently noticed some kind of lubricant leaking onto the driveway, and yesterday when I went out to the car to start it, when I pressed on the clutch it remained on the floor. There was no compression at all, so I added some brake fluid and started pumping the clutch by hand. It now has some compression; however, I do see a small leak slowly dripping, from where I am not exactly sure? Anyone have any suggestions, besides the obvious, to hunt down the leak?
Thankyou!

Where is the clutch auto adjustment located at on a 98 manual Volkswagen jetta?


you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com

There is no pressure when i press down my clutch, I just had it replaced about a year and a half ago. It didn't feel like the clutch went?


clutch master or slave cyl. could have gone out so you are no longer releasing clutch thats why no pressure on pedal. look for Brake fluid leak -clutch uses same type of fluid. or master cyl can leak or bypass internally and just not build pressure.

2002 BMW 325 will not drive in any gear


Hi well this could be a few things, is it auto? or manual? if it is manual then this could be the clutch is warn and needs replacing, or, you have a problem with the hydraulic clutch system ie a leak, or low fluid levels, to check low fluid levels, check the brake fluid reservoir as this also supply's the clutch top up if required, also check the prop shaft under the vehicle make sure the "doughnut" ( its a big rubber ring in the middle of the shaft) has not broken separating the 2 parts of the prop, to also check the clutch master and slave cylinder pump the clutch rapidly and see if it gets harder and then put in gear and see if it will drive , if it does then you might have air in the clutch system maybe a leaking cylinder, to check this, look under the dashboard where the clutch peddle is and see if it is damp on the carpet, this will be a leaking master cylinder and will need to be replaced, for the slave cylinder just check under the vehicle to see if either side of the gearbox is wet, this will be a leaking slave cylinder and will need to be replaced, ok that's for the manual type...for the auto type, you may have a torque converter fault it might be leaking and you have lost the oil in the transmission, there is no dip stick to see if it is low, any automatic transmission fault really should be checked by a BMW garage or main dealer..hope this helps please comment and vote thanks

Where do i put clutch fluid?


This is for a 328, but should be the same for a 325.

Location 1 is where you add the clutch fluid. The brake fluid reservoir for both the brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder. There is a line from the brake reservoir to the clutch master cylinder.

Also, read you owners manual. It should show the same ocation pictorially.

No clutch response


I would check for a restriction between the Clutch Master Cyl. & the Clutch Slave Cylinder. I don't know if it's cold where you are but I've experienced a few Clutch slave cylinders that seemed to freeze, leak out & then continue to leak until replaced. Undoubtedly due to moisture in the systems. You could have a helper assist you in bleeding the slave cylinder, if you notice resistance at first, there could be something in the line from when the previous Master cylinder went bad that just got lodged in the system & didn't show up until now.

If you have no pressure whatsoever, lodging isn't the issue, attempt to bleed the system & then look for leaks at the boot of the slave cylinder. This will also confirm that the Clutch Master Cylinder is functioning properly.

Good luck

Need to find the master valve next the brake fluid intake


The master cylinder is directly underneath the fluid resevoir. The Resevoir mounts to the master cylinder. If you would like an image enter "2001 BMW 325 master cylinder" into a search engine, under the image option.

Clutch pedal drops when I apply brake, so can't change gears


I suppose your clutch master or slave cylinder is leaking. You must keep an eye on the brake flui leven and drive to a workshop for a check asap. You can use DOT3 brake fluid.
