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.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I will check around tonight for leaks. Hopefully its just something loose.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
