Now I have to it every other day.
I am not losing any fluid and never had so I assume I'm taking in ait from somewhere. My question is where would be the most likely place where this could happen? Im not familiar with the system and I assume I cant be sucking air on any of the pressure areas or I would also be losing fluid.
I believe the clutch bearing(Slave?) was changed but not the master cylinder.
If I shoot in the dark should I change either the master or slave or is there a test I can do........
Thanks in Advance
the master would be a lot cheaper. it was $250.00 for a new master cylinder. Then my slave was $890.00 because you have to drop the transmission to get to it and since it was already dropped i replaced the throw out bearing and a with a new heavy duty clutch, slave cylinder, and new main rear seal. I hope its worth it in the long run lets just see lol and i dont know about if there is any steps involved in seeing if there is a fix to your problem. I'm just giving you price's that i paid for for the 2 replacements.
