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.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
