Clutch master/slave cylinder?

Postby CeliKhanh » Wed Dec 06, 2006 6:10 am

the shop where i dropped my car off to get the clutch installed said i need to replace my master and slave cylinder, becuase when i depress the pedal, there is very little pressure near the point where its near the floor
is it true that i need to change them?
should i go w/ OEM or Aftr Market or doesnt really matter at all?

Well first, i would ask them how exactly they went about bleeding it.

Then I would wonder how they determined both the slave and master are out if there isn't any pressure? If there isn't any pressure, i would suspect master first. If there is pressure but the slave rod isn't moving, i would then suspect slave. I mean, it COULD be both, but i would replace the master first if i had to replace anything at all.

man, so many crap has been discovered once the tranny is off, like power steering is leaking, the differential is leaking, now i'm lo0king for a gasket for it and the shop is asking for way 2 much just for the labor to change that gasket .. is It REALLY that hard to change the differential gasket? i mean the tranny is alrdy off, any1 know ow much for labor that should cost also?

Actually, changing the cylinders are pretty easy....you just need the right tools....the master cylinder is a bit tricky because of the big ass steering wheel that toyota decided to put on our cars. The master is attached to the firewall by studs I think.

If you have the tools, do it yourself and use the money to replace the hard line from the master to the slave cylinder with a stainless steel braided one...and you'd have to get a pal to help you bleed the line after.
