Today's drive home from work was rather interesting. Clutch pedal had no "feedback" and I could not get it in gear. Only after pumping the clutch 6-8 times was I able to get it in first gear and get going. Every shift into each gear was sometimes normal or sometimes a little harder. This got tiring and boring pretty quick with all the stop and go's. Finally get it home to check it out and there is NO clutch burning smell. :dunno:


I was talkin to B'BallZ today after I got home from work. We "diagnosed" my truck over the net. Clutch resevoir has fluid in it, so he's suggesting it might be the slave cylinder and that it is notorious for going out.

I'm just wondering who here has had either their slave or master cylinder for their clutch go out?

I had my master cylinder go out.....it made my clutch have varying positions of grab, and eventually it just went out while driving. It made my pressure plate and clutch disk not separate, frying them both and I had to replace the whole shebang.....get that shit checked out ASAP and don't drive on it unless you want a good excuse to replace it with the centerforce.

Slave cylinder

I own a 94 noma. Its go the 2.2 and its a 5 speed. After a good while of stop and go traffic, my clutch starts to make a squeeking noise when I let out. I have been told that it is my slave cylinder. Oh, my truck also has 131000 miles on it:twiggss:

I know exactly what your problem is. Its the slave cylinder, that same thing happened to my 98 last year. Its about an $70 part but you have to pull the trans off to get to it just like if you were changing a clutch. My advice to you is when you buy the slave cylinder buy a clutch too, you might as well chnge both while you have it a part. Good luck

My buddy had his slave cylinder go out on his '98 s-dime after about 90k miles. It did the same thing, clutch had no feedback and wouldn't go into gear. I think it cost him about $150 to get fixed. I also think that the mechanic had to drop the tranny to replace it. Not 100% sure on that one.
