I have a 2006 volvo 2.0 d we recently replaced cutch kit but the clutch is sticky and its losing fluid


If the clutch is engaging while you are pressing the pedal and you are losing fluid either the clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder is bad. If the fluid is leaking from the firewall on the drivers side its the clutch master cylinder. If the fluid is leaking from the transmission area its the slave cylinder.

Why does my clutch pedal go down whenever the car gets hot


The temperature may have nothing to do with it .. it's probably more a question of time/distance.

Are you losing any clutch fluid? You may have a leak from the clutch master cylinder.

Is there a leak from the clutch slave cylinder?

It may be that the rubber seals in either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder have perished/worn. Usually, it is the clutch slave cylinder that is at fault

What's wrong with my clutch if my 1998 escort won't go into gear. There is small resistance in my clutch pedal


Jamie, are you losing any fluid from the clutch master cylinder? By small resistance I presume you mean the pedal feels soft?

If you're losing fluid from the master cylinder you have an obvious leak somewhere and air is getting into the system.

Most leaks occur from the clutch SLAVE cylinder as it does all the work .. If there's no leak from the clutch slave cylinder, suspect the seals inside. It's like a bicycle pump ..the seal inside wears and it won't pump..

You may be able to get an overhaul kit. I'm in the UK .. but here's an Ebay link for a slave cylinder overhaul kit just to show you what it looks like:
FORD CORTINA MK2 CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER REPAIR KIT SP2085
Here's a link to show you what the slave cylinder itself may look like (it may NOT be for your vehicle..)
CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER FORD FIESTA ESCORT
It's easier and quicker to fit a new slave cylinder than it is to strip down and replace seals with a kit. Be aware, after overhauling or replacing a slave cylinder you have to bleed it - remove the air.

The easiest way of doing this is to make sure the reservoir is fill of fluid, crawl underneath the car with a spanner/wrench, place a rag over the bleed point and get somebody to pump the pedal a couple of times while you undo then tighten the bleed nut.

If it's not the slave cylinder at fault- then it's the master cylinder. Master cylinders also have a 'piston' and rubber seals which wear/perish.
However, it's more than likely that it's the slave cylinder at fault

How to adjust 98 ford explorer clutch play?


the clutch has no adjustment. the clutch is a hydraulic clutch,if you have a low clutch release then you may want to check the fluid in the reservoir on the left side of the engine compartment near the brake master cylinder. the clutch uses DOT 3 brake fluid.

My clutch pedal used to be pretty stout and the clutch would engage at about the midway point to the floor. All of a sudden the clutch pedal is pretty free to the floor where the clutch now engages. what...


sounds to me like the clutch master cylinder might be bad usually this happens when the line or the clutch master cylinder leaks fluid and you lose pressure to your clutch pedal...you should have a hydraulic clutch on this truck...if its leaking it will need to be replaced its located under the truck usually on the drivers side mounted on the transmission bell housing...hopes this helps

1997 Probe Gt, 5 speed, 2.5 L V-6; 77,750 miles: replaced clutch master cylinder 11/15/2010. Clutch free play okay, pressure to push clutch pedal down- okay (these conditions apply to vehicle after...


THe problem can only really be with the clutch master cylinder. What you describe sounds like the master cylinder is not relieving pressure and this is building up in the salve cylinder, applying pressure to the pressure place and causing the clutch to slip. Can you make the problem go away even temporarily, if you open the bleed screw on the slave cylinder? You say that the free play is correct, but is the master cylinder returning fully to its released position?

!991 Jeep Wrangler clutch pedal loses pressure. I have to pump it to get enough pressure to shift. I keep it full of brake fluid. I can see no leaks. Thanks for any help.


leaky slave or master cylinder - if you have someone listen to the slave cylinder while you press the pedal is should "squelch" if there is air in there, if the slave cylinder doesn't make a squelching sound then the master cylinder or a hydraulic line between the two cylinders is leaking - slave cylinder isn't very expensive but the master cylinder can be rather pricey. and any good parts shop or motor-factor can source or make-up a new hydraulic line if it is the line itself that is leaking.

Clutch pedal going to the floor too easily..


You likely have a leak in either the master for the clutch, the line going to the slave unit or the slave itself. You need to look at these items and replace any leaking components. If the master is full, likely it is internally bypassing and therefore needs replacement. Air in the system can only get in there from a leak. bleeding may make it work for a short time but is not a cure. After making any repairs you do need to bleed it though. (just like brakes)

Bleeeding the clutch


This is what I would do.
Fill the master with brake fluid.
Make sure the slave cylinder bleeder is closed.
Have someone pump the clutch pedal fully down and while allowing it to come fully up about 20 times and then hold down.
Now with the clutch held down ........open the bleeder and hopefully some air will come out.
Repeat until fluid appears with out air.
The clutch master cylinder piston must be allowed to come fully back in it's cylinder to take in a new load of brake fluid with every pump and in normal operation.
Another way to bleed it......is to vacuum the fluid through the system from the master cylinder .......connecting to the slave cylinder bleeder valve.

On solution #1 dec 2008 I would like to know where i could get the adjustable clutch master rod between the master cylinder and the clutch pedal. He mentioned it could be purchased on line but did not say...


After reading this I have to ask if parts are origional why do they not work properly. My first suggestion is that bleading not done effectively. If air is present in line,slave cylender etc. then it would not have travel needed or master cylinder is frozen at point short of origional return or is wrong one. There shouldn't be a reason to have to purchase rod with upgrade unless specified by manufacturer and if so then they should have supplied it. Inspect each part and compare with old ones if possible, if master is origional then make sure that it returns fully to give travel to pedal. when bleading system fill slave cylinder as much as possible disconnected from line and blead many times.
