leaking brake fluid no clutch

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I sat into my car on Saturday to start my sixth autocross run of the day. I depressed the clutch peddle to start the car and it stayed on the floor. After a while I had a pool of break fluid (just changed last week)on the road under the engine section. I limped home changing gear with out a clutch and a fellow PCA member following in case of problems.

The general view at the event was that the slave cylinder failed. I just put the car up on all fours and took a look.

The fluid is comming out the bottom of the housing where the gearbox meets the engine(just like a RMS leak). So it looks like the slave cylinder?? arround the slave cylinder is dry. Have I runed my clutch if the fluid is comming out from there. (only put a new on in october 07)

Any suggestions to what I should do. Change slave only or do I have to change the clutch also.?

I had a post about a hesitation when I shanged gear a little while ago I found that this decreased alot when I put the new fluid in last week I dont know if this is related.

Any help would be appreciated

I just removed the slave cylinder and the push rod fell out. my questions. (cylinder was leaking)

1. Does the new slave cylinder come with a push rod attached or do I have to order seperatly?

2. What direction does the push rod fit into the cylinder? (it has two different ends) (any diagram)

I ordered the new slave cylinder from a local dealer for $110 He told me it has been revised three times.

Hi All

I have a quick question

I replaces the slave cylinder. Now my clutch pedal feels completly different it engages and releases alot lower than before. Infact it is completly the opposit to before. (the upper part of the pedal is not been used) What can I do to change this. The car changes gear good no grinding.

I did not have a power bleeder so I took my time and used gravity.Was this the fault.
