Estimate on a repair?

Hey guys i got a 98 s10 2.2 5spd and the slave cylinder is shot. Its way to cold for me to do it on the ground so i was gonna have someone do it with a lift and whatnot. Whats the estimated time to do this job? what would you charge to do the job? thanks guys

Re: Estimate on a repair?

yup. 94-97 were just bolted on the outside.

my guess is maybe 2-400 to do the job

depends on the shop rate too.

Re: Estimate on a repair?

also it might be in your best intrerest if you get the clutch done while your at it so you wont have to go back in there again just to change it out if you can spare the cash. depends on how many miles you have on the clutch though...

Re: Estimate on a repair?

The slave cylinder is on the inside of a 96+. I think in 96, they went to the nv1500. As cheap as these trucks are made nowadays, it wouldn't hurt to replace it.

Re: Estimate on a repair?

my 97 has an internal slave. It is expensive because of the labor, many shops nowadays charge upwards of $75 an hr and expect it to take at least 4 hours maybe 6 or so, alot of people say its a tough job, and it is, but it isn't really all that bad. I took mine apart last weekend it took me two days (noon to 6), but it was about 25 degrees out, I broke a tool, and I know if i did it again I could do it in about 2-4 hours. I will be putting everything back in this weekend, should take less than a day. btw you should replace/resurface(recommend replace) the flywheel, get the clutch kit, and the slave at the same time. If you do just the clutch the slave will come back to bite you in the ars. I bought the slave for $70, clutch kit for $150, and flywheel for $60, all perfection brand, and comes with everything you need. I also am replacing the master and line ($150 from gm) and changing the gearbox fluid ($18 a quart x 2 quarts)...is this worth it for a 97...lol...I did it in the freezing cold you can too!!! haha. good luck either way.

Re: Estimate on a repair?

I think I'm confusing myself. Which cylinder is the one that is in back of the clutch pedal?

Re: Estimate on a repair?

the master cylinder is the one behind the clutch pedal on the firewall, then there's the line that runs to the slave either internal or external. I think you can find cheaper clutches on ebay and what not. I chose to just stick with one brand all from the same store(my dad split the cost).

i purchase mine on the south. If you do just the clutch the slave will come back to bite you in the ars. Auto Repair Estimates can help you manage your budget for repairs.
