85 Volvo 740 Clutch slave cylinder problem..Replaced slave cylinder using the same rod to the fork ( new one did not come with one ) bled the system. Everything looks the same, however the slave piston is at its full stroke so there's pedal pressure...what happened? is the fork and throw out bearing misaligned? there is no adjustment on the rod and I can't find any reference material on the web and all the local auto stores can't seem to find a book for there a web site I can go to that can give me a break down of whats going inside the bell housing: fork & bearing position for installation of the slave & its push rod

New clutch not disengaging

When I do clutch jobs. I replace the clutch package(comes with the slave) and the master cylinder also. Have the flywheel turned or replaced. Just a note. The clutch plate can be installed backwards. No matter how many times you bleed it, It won't work.

Isuzu kb. We replaced the clutch an we bleed the system. It works for a while but then the fork gets stuck an looks like the cylinder pushed to the max. What causes that??

so if the the slave cyl. moves to max and the clutch does not disengage, then the throw out bearing is destroyed, ,first it burns up, seizes or collapse to a shell of nothingness.
the hyd. clutch is self adjusting, so there is no calibration like on cable or rod systems...
if its bled right the slave moves full distance.
so.... T/O bearing is GONE , end of the road.

I haven't go to Nissan Altima I just replace the clutch and the hydraulic slave cylinder but when the car is not running it will slide through the gears but when the car is running it won't go into any...

Make sure the throw out bearing is fitted to the clutch fork and the bearing is the same length as the old one , move the fork by hand to make sure it engages with the clutch pressure plate , if the slave cylinder rod has a adjustment nut adjust the free play at the fork to 1/8 inch . provided the clutch driven plate an throw out bearing are fitted ok and the hydraulic system is ok , it should be ok

Recently replaced clutch kit flywheel hydraulic slave cylinder on a 97 Chevy s10 4.3. Once the clutch system has been bled the clutch pedal pops off clutch master cylinder when pedal is hard. Any...

Not sure if I understand your question. Sounds like the push rod from the clutch master cylinder is pushing the cylinder off the firewall. If that is the case it could be that your rod wasnt fully engage into your cylinder make the rod to long and with enough pressure is popping the clip off the fire wall

93 stealth clutch goes to floor pulled slave cylinder felt good but trani fork has lots of play does it need adjustment loose unattached spring or something else

No ---it simply needs the air being bled out of the clutch system. IF the slave cylinder had no fluid leakage past the piston then have an assistant help you bleed the slave cylinder. If there is a problem then I would consider replacing the clutch master cylinder .Keep an eye on the clutch master cylinder reservoir . The play you gave in the clutch fork is not there when the system is bled properly and there is no spring as the system keeps the piston of the slave cylinder in contact with the forks.

Clutch master and slave cylinder

Reservoir drained=got leak. Should be evident on one or other. Sometimes leaking at firewall hard to detect. Replace both, if one wore out the other won't be far behind. My 88 toyota pickup leaked there but replacement master cylinder rod was too long so had to use homemade spacer on firewall in engine compartment. Slave cylinder was a pain to get mounted.

Replace slave cylinder

okay, lets hope the clutch slave is installed correctly, is this slave internal or external. in other words can the clutch slave(the part that pushes clutch fork) be replaced with out pulling the transmission?
what year,make and model is this car? did you open the clutch line? how did you bleed the clutch?

New clutch master cylinder new slave cylinder new release fork and bearing new clutch, have bled three bottles through the system and still not enough movement at the slave cylinder to release clutch

You need to check that you are actually getting the full length of stroke from the master cylinder.
If you are then you still a captive air pocket in the master cylinder and the only way to get rid of it is to vacum bleed the system from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder.
Check these and let me know, I can give you further information.
