    Hi, the line appears to have a crack in it. The fluid is leaking from the tubbing, at least thats what is look like to me.





    I have not yet taken anything apart, when I looked online for common problems I found sites that said that hyd. clutch problems most likely are caused by the master of slave cyl.





    Like I said, the fluid seems to be coming out of the tubbing wall. my question is: can I buy just the tubbing with the end connections and if yes, where do I get this from. If I go to a chevy dealer and order the tubbing will it come pre bent so that it fits around things. Or should I go to a parts store and take what ever they might have to offer.





    Also, coming out of the master cyl. it seems as though there is only a rubber tube coming off the connection, is this not a "high pressure" system?





    Thanks for your help!

    You feel that the line is clogged up or what?



    It is rare that this line gets clogged, usually it's a master-cylinder that fails and does not have enough pressure to activate the slave-cylinder.

Oreilly's or autozone should have a line...they sell it by the foot..take your old line in and they will find you a match..might need to bend it to match your old line...but its made to do that...

The only place that I am aware that you can purchase this (with the rubber) is from the dealer - they like to hold on to some of their hard to find stuff and not release it to aftermarket companies.

The only other place is salvage yards.

Yes and no on the High Pressure. The Master cylinder does put out pressure, but not as much as you might think and the hose is a braided h/p hose.

You could probably get a steel line with the ends on it, but it will eventually fail do to the vibrations.

I would check with the dealer, sometimes the "quick fix" cost more in the long run....lol

Why does clutch leak off and wont go into gear 96 toyota tacoma when you push on clutch pedal goes to the floor it wont engage clutch to be able to put into gear


the most likely reason is either the clutch master cyl. needs to be replaced.or the.slave cyl. its mounted down on the transmation under the hood find the resivore for the clutch. check the fluid level.if its low , fill it back up , and look for signs of a leak
you will probally have to bleed out all of the air from the system.its done almost the same way as bleeding the brakes. Good Luck.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

1987 Nissan PU, I replaced the master and slave clutch cyls. I bleed the system and there is no air in the lines but peddle does not get hard. Could the new master or slave cyl be bad? I see you can adjust...


The shaft should come all the way back, when the pedal is back, the master shaft should be adjusted so there is very little play in the pedal. But it needs some play. Make sure you can see the slave cylinder move when you depress the clutch pedal, you will need help to operate the pedal, while you look.

I have a 91 nissan d21 and cnt find the slave cylinder or master slave cylinder?


The master is beside the brake master cylinder, between the brake cylinder and the fender. Follow the line down to the trans, it ends at the slave. Now that you know where they are... why do you want to know??

Press clutch down truck still moves foward on a 98 isuzu hombre


If you've not done anything to your truck, check the Clutch master cylinder under the hood, there is a resivoir that should have brake fluid in it. It usually sits next to the Brake master cylinder & is a smaller unit. If nothing has been done to the system recently, and your fluid is full, either the Clutch Master Cyl. or the Clutch Slave Cy. mounted on the bellhousing of the trans. is defective, or has a leaking connection.

If leaking connection, tighten & bleed the system. Check under the clutch pedal on the floorboard for brake fluid, if you find it, the Clutch Master Cyl is the problem & will need ot be replaced. Otherwise, the Clutch Slave Cyl. will need to be replaced. System has to be bled after replacing either & the Clutch Master Cyl. must be bled before hooking up the lines to the Clutch Slave Cyl.

Good Luck

good luck.

1995 Chevy Cavalier Fluid leaking somewhere from hydro clutch line..need diagram that shows the system. There is a small container that is labeled Clutch that was empty.


There are only three parts to the system...the "container" that is the clutch master cylinder, a line between that and the clutch slave cylinder (which is the third part). It works same as your brakes ...step on the clutch and pressure from the master flows through the line to the slave. The slave moves the fork that pushes the clutch in to disengage it. Just like your brakes, any leak in any component will cause it not to work. Re-fill the master and have someone work the clutch and watch for leaks. Also inspect the area under the dash where the pedal rod goes through the firewall. if it's damp there the master is bad. After replacing whatever failed, you need to bleed the air from the system (should be a valve on the slave)

1994 Jeep Wrangler 4cyl - Bleeding slave cylinder


This is not a bleeder hole, this is a weep hole like in a water pump to see when there is seepage past the seals.

Bench bleed the system. With the master cyl. line and slave cyl assembled, place the master cylinder in a vise, fill the master cyllinder. actuate the slave cylinder back and forth lower than the master cyl. This will allow the air to escape upwards back into and out of the master cyl.
Once bled the system can be installed.

Good Luck
