Any idea on what might be the problem with my hydraulic clutch system (and what/how to fix)?

Hi,if you are loosing clutch flued the most likely place is the slave cylinder as you have already replaced the master cylinder,its proberly leaking inside so you cant see it.
I mean all you have is one slave cylinder atached to a pipe wich attaches to the slave cylinder so if theres a leak it has to be from one of these parts.
let me know when you find out,all the best.

How much does it cost to replace a clutch on 1987 nissan pulsar

clutches cost $700.0 plus original, around $500 after market ( (original equipment in a different box) and the labour costs depend on if the flywheel needs surfacing Time will be around 6 hours at local labour time rate.
Are you sure it is the clutch as problematic master cylinders will make a clutch slip
Get a second opinion from an accredited clutch specialist before you spend money.

My clutch seems to have gone out tonight. The clutch is very easy to push to the floor...and it pops back....there's no pressure at all. The clutch fluid is leaking from the hose. Could this be the...

it could be either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder,it could also be the clutch pressure plate check the master & slave cylinders first because if it's the pressure plate the gear box will have to be removed to replace the pressure plate, even if you are uncertain it is most likely cheaper to replace the master & slave cylinders than it would be to replace the pressure plate.....hope this helps......cheers.

How is the best way to bleed a master and slave cylinder for a clutch on a 01 dodge 2500 6 speed with the cummins

Bleeding any Dodge clutch hydraulics are very difficult & almost impossible. The best solution is to buy the whole assembly (master,line,slave) from the dealer. Its pre-bleed & all together. So don't separate or open system!!!! just install & go. Also do not remove plastic piece that holds the pin in at the slave.There is a reason(manufacturer) does all of this. It might seem expensive but the time you spend trying to bleed & or replace parts to fix it, will pay off.

I lost all pressure in my clutch so I replaced the clutch/slave cylinder etc on my 2001 saturn wagon. worked fine for a 2 months. Now all of a sudden I have some pressure in the clutch but it seems out of...

Two possibilties. If you haven't yet replaced the clutch master cylinder there might not be enough pressure to fully engage the clutch. If the master cylinder is full of fluid and has been operating properly until now it could be that you only need to adjust the linkage at the slave cylinder to give a little more throw to the pressure plate. Always try the easiest things first. Good Luck!

The pedal of my manual transmission just stop working in a stop light... ( the pedal us almost lose... I have to pumped to many time to get the geAR)

Of course check fluid first & if low you'll need to determine the cause.

Other than that, it would indicate that either you have a leak between the Clutch master cylinder & the Clutch slave cylinder on the transmission, or, one of those 2 parts is defective.

Check under the clutch pedal on the floorboard to see if you can identify any clutch fluid (same as brake fluid for the most part) around the area below where the clutch rod comes through the firewall. If you do, that means the clutch master cyliinder is leaking.

Next is to go to the transmission & see if you can identify the leak there.

Amazingly, cold weather and bad Clutch Slave Cylinders go hand in hand. Once you find the problem just replace the part, tighten the line, bleed the system & you should be good for a long time.

good luck.

There is no pressure in the clutch of my 2006 Suzuki Forenza.

Cable Operated Clutch:
Stretched, frayed or binding cable, broken or bent pedal bracket, or cracked firewall can be the cause. Problems with a cable mechanism will often herald internal clutch problems as well. When something happens inside the clutch that requires extra force to be exerted on the clutch pedal, things break! Cables can also wear simply from age and use.
Hydraulically Operated Clutch:
Clutch master cylinder leaking or bypassing pressure, slave cylinder leaking, clutch flex hose leaking, pedal bushings worn or missing, or a cracked firewall can reduce the system’s ability to disengage the clutch. Rule of thumb: If the clutch master cylinder is bad, replace both master and slave cylinders as a pair. This will save you future heartache.
