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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
