Question about Cars & Trucks
I replaced the slave and master cylinder on my hilux, and I cleaned the litel joint block where the hydrolics meet (the oring is new), but still in the morning my clutch paddle is halfway, and it has minimum pressure, and my second gear grates when I change gears, but after a few stops the clutch is good.
is the clutch power assisted(vacuum)?if so couldvery well have some bearing on what is happening.I WILL TELL YOU A STOREY.A couple of months ago I changed the clutch master cyl. on my land cruiser and because I do all my own work still I didnot obey the golden rule..3days later i changed the slave cyl...l again did not obay the golden rule...... 2 days later iagain pulled the master cyl off cleaned it all out, but this time I OBEYED THE GOLDEN RULE,WHICH IS::always change the brake fluid when ever you change amaster cylinder either brake or clutch or when I was doing work for other people,if the brakes were worked on or the clutch you drained the sytem and relaced the fluid...ANY COMMERCIAL WORKSHOP THAT DOES NOT DO THIS IS GOING TO HAVE COMEBACKS ..it may only be 5or10% but for a $5container of fluid it isn` t worth the chance I was in that5 or 10 % are you? that is true,not more than 3 months ago give it some thought ....................

Yes, if the pressure plate is bad the clutch peddle can go to the floor and stay there.

Thats really a toss up unfortunately. I assume you checked the fluid. Usually the slave cylinder will leak when it goes bad. Hope that helps.

Testimonial: "Replaced the Master cylinder first, no change, replaced the slave cylinder second, worked like a charm."
