Being able to shift the transmission into neutral position is useful especially when you're stuck in traffic. That way, you won't have to keep your foot on the clutch pedal all the time. However, this benefit won't be possible if your vehicle's clutch master cylinder is clogged or leaking and can't exert enough pressure in the system. With the help of this device, the transmission system is able to effortlessly engage and disengage the clutch with the engine whenever you step on the clutch pedal. The pressure you apply to the pedal is converted by the master cylinder into hydraulic power, which is magnified and transmitted to the slave cylinder. By doing this, you get to shift gears quickly, enabling you to make the necessary adjustments in terms of speed. Given the importance of its function, you need to ensure that your master cylinder is in good shape. A worn-out cylinder can cause the clutch pedal to sink to the floor or give a spongy feel, making it difficult to engage or disengage the clutch. It can also suddenly engage the engine even if your foot is still pressing the clutch pedal. If this happens in heavy traffic during a red light, you're most likely to bump the vehicle in front or beat the red light. So once these signs manifest, it's crucial to have the clutch master cylinder replaced to avoid further mishaps on the road. Make the necessary adjustments and get a quality replacement from Auto Parts Warehouse. Place an order today!

Troubleshooting a Faulty Clutch Master Cylinder

You'd want to make sure that there's enough fluid coursing the clutch lines, so any time you step on the clutch and pull or push the stick shift, you can switch gears easily. To roll with the punches on the road, you want to be able to slow down or speed up with no trouble at all. Don't let a bad clutch master cylinder stand in the way of smooth handling and transmission.

How will you know if your clutch master cylinder already needs to be fixed? Here are some tips:

  1. See if there's enough fluid left. Check the reservoir tank of the clutch master cylinder. The fluid level should go between the lower and upper marks on the reservoir tank.
  2. Take a close look at the clutch master cylinder to spot if there's leak or fluid dripping on its side. A leaky cylinder should be fixed right away.
  3. Put some pressure on the clutch pedal. If it's too soft, you have to bleed the clutch lines to remove air. Use your vehicle manual as a guide.
  4. Trace the clutch line that runs from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder. If it's damaged or corroded, fluid won't course through the system easily. It needs replacement.

Replacing a bad clutch master cylinder

Difficulty level: Moderate

What you'll need:

  • Socket wrench with socket set
  • Tube nut wrench
  • Catch pan

Step 1: Find the clutch master cylinder in your vehicle, which may be found on the driver side of the engine block.

Step 2: Put a pan under the cylinder to catch the fluid that may leak, as you work on this clutch part.

Step 3: Use the tube nut wrench to take out the nuts that seal the master cylinder. Turn the wrench nut counterclockwise.

Step 4: To detach the master cylinder, pull out the bolts that lock it to the firewall.

Step 5: Position the new master cylinder right to the mounting holes, so that you can seal this to the firewall with bolts. Then tighten the tube nuts.

Step 6: After adding fluid to the master cylinder reservoir, bleed the system.
