Clutch Problems

6 posts in this topic

On the way home from work tonight I started having clutch problems. I suddenly lost about half of the motion in the clutch pedal. The pedal is loose until pushed about half way down and then I can feel the clutch. It is not slipping at all and was working fine before this. The truck is an 01 Mazda B3000. What could it be?

Slave cylinder, master cylinder.

I just went out and checked the fluid level. It was about 1/4" low. I filled it up and the clutch came back. I replaced the slave cylinder 50k ago. I dont know how long they normally last. It seems strange that it happened so sudden. What should I look for or expect now?

If you look around the bottom side of the tranny, and see and oily film coming out of the bell housing, then the slave cylinder is what is leaking. MOst likely its leaking somewhere so jsut leaving it, it will eventually get worse. It may be good for a year, or a day, you never know.

Check around your master, the line going to the slave, all around the slave. It's leaking somewhere. With any luck it's just a flare fitting that needs tightening.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
