Average rating from 147 customers who received a Clutch Master Cylinder Replacement.

Your slave cylinder is within a sealed system, so it will generally last a very long time, and may never have to be replaced. The key word here is, of course “may.” If you’re in the habit of buying newer vehicles, and trading in on a regular bases, the chances of you ever having to deal with slave cylinder failure are low.

That said, there’s really no defined time period for clutch slave cylinder replacement – it’s not a part of your regular maintenance. Chances are that if you own your vehicle for long enough, or if you’ve bought an older vehicle, it’s not unreasonable to think that at some point, the slave cylinder will begin to leak. A slight leak might not be the end of the world – you’ll notice that your clutch isn’t working as well as it once did, and at this point you may be considering replacing the vehicle in any case.

Keep in mind, though, that if you plan on continuing to drive the car, you are going to have to have the problem dealt with. You’ll need to have leaks diagnosed to find out if the problem is in the slave cylinder itself, or in the clutch master cylinder. If you wait, and the leak gets worse, you could end up with complete slave cylinder failure, no clutch, and a vehicle that isn’t drivable. So, if you suspect that your slave cylinder is leaking, you should enlist the services of a professional mechanic who can replace the slave cylinder for you.

Honda Civic - Clutch Master Cylinder - Houston, Texas
Genaro is prepared, punctual, knowledgeable, experienced and capable. He has worked on my car several times now, and even when yourmechanic.com gave him the wrong part (not his fault-- the alternator plug was wrong), he went out of his way to communicate with me as far as scheduling to come back the next day (it was already after 4pm, so there wasn't any more that could be done the same day). He is receptive to what I tell him I think is going on with the car, but I am grateful that he always uses his own judgement and doesn't take my anecdotes as evidence. I would recommend Genaro to my closest friends and family. Thanks, Genaro! And sorry for taking so long to write you this review!
