clutch slave cylinder

Hi
Hope to get some help here. 6 mos or so ago I replaced the slave cylinder in my 01, 2500 5.9 diesel. 5 speed. Last week the clutch went out. Had been slipping for about a month. So got new clutch, turned fly wheel. All ready to put slave cylinder back in which my son had taken out. Hear goes! The strap that was on the slave cylinder. did not break like it was supposed to. From the instructions, after bleeding, and installing, the hold back strap is supposed to break allowing the push rod to release. So now I know why my clutch went out. For the past 6 months the slave has not been completly disingaging the clutch.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

The failure of the strap not breaking cost me a clutch job.

Thanks for any input.

Jim

I just replaced my master and slave today. I took the strap and the plastic tip off of the slave before installing. I didn't know what to do exactly since I had no instructions. I hope that I wasn't suppose to leave the plastic tip on. The old one that I took off didn't have the plastic tip, so I took it off.

clutch slave cylinder

Thanks

When I put the slave in, the instructions said to remove the strap and push rod in and out to bleed line and fill slave, then to put back on and strap would break upon pushing on clutch pedal. This evidently never happened in my case. I doubt the plastic tip would last long, anyway so you should be OK.

Thanks
Jim

The slave cylinder was not your problem unless there was external leakage. Master cylinder has internal leakage as pedal is depressed. You should replace as assembly instead of individual parts. You can get a complete ready to install kit for all little as
$150.
No bleeding required.

<just installed one of those 150 replacement parts. I heard the band snap the first time I hit the clutch. Examine all components closley as you may need to reuse a few small parts as I had to. No biggie. PM if you get stuck.

Where do you get parts??? Is the $150 for both master and slave?
Help my truck won't go at all till I fix something.
Squeaky clutch pedal for a little while. Now no reaction when I push the mushy feeling pedal. So I can't get it into gear our out of gear.
Thanks!

The squeak is most likely a dry bushing. try spraying the pivots with som silicone spray, got rid of my squeak

Mushy petal most likely bad Slave Or Master Cylinder.

Where do I get the parts. That is the trick since it is so hard to find someone wanting to make money selling parts. Have you even inquired at the national parts stores. AZ, advance, orileys, RockAuto.com, many of our vendors will be glad to assist. Select one and inquire.
