Default Re: Slave cylinder replacement

O.k., my clutch had the same symptoms. My clutch fluid was dirty. Black clutch dust settled at the bottom of the reservoir. On cold days I had to top up the reservoir in order to shift into gear, I kept a bottle of Dot 3 brake fluid in the cab for this. Eventually that didn't work as the fluid ran out too quickly. If you take off the rubber cover on the drivers side of the bell housing and shine a flashlight inside you will see the slave cylinder. If there is clutch fluid leaking from the front rubber boot, then you know you have to replace it. If it is not leaking there then it could be the master cylinder. Check the area under the clutch peddle for a fluid leak. As far as the peddle being hard, I have not had that happen.
