Removing clutch hydrualic line from trani., in order to replace

When removing the clutch hydraulic line from the trani, after pushing in that little clip , the line came out from the trani, but has a peice attatched to the end that doesnt look like anything on the end of the new replacement one. Did i break something off inside the trani that wasnt supposed to come out, or will that all go back in ok when i put the new one in?

After replacing any part of the hydraulic system for the brakes, all air has to be removed. That you know.

I have the same old truck, I recently replaced the clutch slave cylinder because it was leaking. The fluid ran low and I could just barely get it into gear with the engine running and when letting out the clutch, it would engage too soon. Then I realized the fluid was low, so I replaced the slave cylinder. It was not very hard at all, just a little tricky. I had to remove a crossbeam that was in the way, that's it, and it was better to attach the hydraulic line before mounting the slave cylinder. Actually I don't think it would be possible to attach the line after mounting it. Mine has the removable plunger pin, so I mounted the cylinder, then was just able to squeeze in the pin between the plunger and clutch lever. I made sure to put enough Teflon tape on the hydraulic fitting. No leaks now, works good. Refilled the master cylinder with normal brake fluid and bled the line a little. I had to pump the clutch petal nearly 20 times for it to build up full pressure so it felt right again after bleeding. I would say it was an easy repair and I'm a computer tech not a mechanic.

Replaced clutch but now hard to shift into gear. will go but hard to shift. heard there was a safety on these that if brake lite not coming on will not go into gear properly.

If it's going into gear hard it's most likely because the clutch is not disengaging enough. Do you have a lot of free play? Does the clutch start to grab with the pedal real close to the floor? If so, check the the nylon bushing under the dash where the pushrod for the clutch master cylinder attaches to the arm. Is the pedal real spongy, is there air in the hydraulic system? Another posibility is that you damaged the pilot bearing causing it to drag and it keeps trying to turn the trany. If you get the rolling a little then try to put it into gear, will it go in easier? If so the clutch is dragging. There is nothing with the brake lights that will cause it to shift hard. With an automatic trany the brake lights will unlock the torque converter. Also with a 4X4 and automatic trany and electric shift on the transfer case, the transfer will not shift unless the trany is in "N" and your foot is on the brake. There is nothing on a manual set up that anything to do with brake lights and shifting.

Clutch sticks on 1989 audi it hydrualic?It is engaged even with the pedal down.does it intermittantly.this is a 5 cyl.eng. w/a 5 speed

hi, depending on the model, you may have a mechanical clutch. if there's a clutch master and slave cylinder under the hood, its hydraulic. the main issue here is that your pressure plate. you will need to replace this. this will fix the issue.

Push down on clutch pedal can't get car into gear

Likely, you have a hydraulic clutch system. Check clutch master cylijnder for fluid and leakage, check hydraulic line and slave cylinder for leaks. If fluid low or empty, bleed as you would a brake wheel cylinder. If full,have someone work the clutch while you watch slave cylinder to make sure it is moving clutch fork. If system full and little or no movement, the master may be "bypassing" internally (replace) Also, check pedal mechanical linkage. Not often but sometimes these parts can break! Could also be athat clutch itself is worn, but this does not happen overnight and you would have noted slip long before this!

Clutch line is leaking what could it be?

hydraulic clutch i presume. easiest way to determine where it is leaking from is to examine the ground after it was been parked overnite.... the colour of the fluid you are adding is what you are looking for. i believe there are only three places it could leak... the master cyclinder for the clutch... the hose or the hydrualic cyclinder at the clutch itself.
