Clutch Slave Cylinder Replacement Service

What is the Clutch Slave Cylinder all about?

A clutch master cylinder contains a reservoir that stores the brake fluid. It is connected to the clutch slave cylinder through hoses. When you push the clutch pedal, brake fluid flows from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder, applying the pressure necessary to move (engage) the clutch. It has internal and external seals that can fail. If the external seals wear out, the clutch master cylinder will leak brake fluid, reducing the amount of fluid in the car and causing the clutch to malfunction. You may also find leaked brake fluid down by the clutch pedal (inside the car). If the internal seals wear out, the clutch fluid will continue to circulate inside instead of being directed to the slave cylinder. In that case, the clutch pedal will go all the way to the floor when you apply the clutch.

Keep in mind:

Whenever the clutch master cylinder is replaced, it is recommended to replace the slave cylinder (connected to the master cylinder through the hose). When the master cylinder goes bad, it is extremely common for the slave cylinder to follow suit. Note some clutch slave cylinders are installed inside the transmission. To replace this type of slave cylinder the transmission has to be removed.

How it's done:

  • Inspect clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder.
  • Check the condition of brake fluid.
  • Inspect the operation of clutch pedal.
  • Remove and replace clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder.
  • Bleed all air from the master cylinder.
  • Test drive the vehicle.

Our recommendation:

Usually during an oil change, mechanics check the amount of brake fluid. If you feel a change in the way the clutch pedal feels (softer pedals) when stepping on it, you should have a mechanic inspect the clutch master cylinder and hose. Clutch fluid should be changed every 24,000 miles.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Clutch Slave Cylinder?

  • Clutch pedals goes all the way to the floor.
  • Brake fluid leaking around the clutch pedal.
  • Not able to change gears.

Mercury Grand Marquis V8-4.6L - Power steering fluid is leaking - Jonesboro, Georgia
Unfortunately I was taken to the cleaners by a different mechanic different company. Stephen restored my faith in honest mechanics. He was on time, was clean and courteous and solved my problem in no time. In fact I didn't have a problem other than being told by the "bad" mechanic my car needed a new rack in pinion, parts and labor $595.00. Will definitely recommend him to my friends and will call again when needed and will specifically ask for him personally. Satisfied customer.

Mercury Grand Marquis V8-4.6L - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - North Las Vegas, Nevada
Marvin is totally cool, professional and knowledgeable. He explained everything and patiently answered our questions plus he double checked services that another auto shop had included in their estimate., My first attempt at getting the car serviced was a total waste of time,. It took them over 5 hours to look at the car and when they finally contacted me it was to give me an estimate that was 3x more than the original quote. The first shop I took the car too didn't seem to care about my time and I felt that they were trying to rip me off by charging for services not needed which included parts and labor expenses that they probably wouldn't have done but charged for anyway. Yourmechanic.com was so much more convenient. I didn't have to worry about finding rides before and after dropping the car of at the shop because Marvin came to us after I saved my online quote and made an appointment for the same day. I wasted over 6 hours and received a quote for $826.67 (original quote was $252-275) and nothing was done because I refused to have the work done after they told me that the brake pads, calipers, rotors and brake hoses needed replacing even though I told them when I dropped the car off that we only needed front and rare brake pad replacement. Marvin came out to us on the same day and was completely done within 3 hours for $336.42(original quote was $259.47) There was an additional charge of $76.95 because one of the rotors also needed replacing. Before leaving, Marvin informed us of what services were going to be needed soon which included adding motor oil. and windshield wiper fluid which are easy enough for me to do so he told me what kind of motor oil to buy and didn't mind at all that I was trying to save money by doing what I could myself. We will be scheduling Marvin to come out again so that the brake lines can be flushed. He already submitted the quote online. All I'll need to do is accept the quote and schedule an appointment. II really like Marvin. I have absolutely no complaints with regard to anything he did, he saved us approximately $500, he was quick, efficient and was very easy to communicate with. The best part was that he didn't talk down to me at all or try to rip me off like the other auto shop did (MAC) I highly recommend Marvin, he's a good, honest mechanic.
