Clutch master/slave bad?

6 posts in this topic

Had the truck over in St. Louis today. While driving around, I discovered that I was having a problem shifting, especially when stopped. I had to put the truck into neutral to stop, shut off the engine to put it into second, start the engine, then go. Upshifts were not much of a problem. Downshifts were shaky, as sometimes they were ok, other times it would not downshift. I ordered new clutch master and slave cylinders from Autozone. O'Reilly's couldn't get them for 5-7 days. No NAPA here. Autozone had the slave in stock, the master cylinder will be here tomorrow. Any suggestions/recommendations? Thanks.

I figure I will try this first, as it is cheaper/easier than pulling everything apart. If it does not work, then the tranny/transfer case will be coming out so I can see what the problem is.

There you go! I waited till it made noise and eventually the clutch was always engaged.. Figured that out behind a car at a stoplight :stuned: Luckily it died since it was so abrupt. That is why I say don't drive it if it doesn't fix it. Pretty good chance it will fix it though. Not everyday the clutch springs fly apart haha.

I put a new clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder in this morning. Used Moparman's bleeding trick, which worked well for me. The test drive showed everything to be shifting properly. I will give it a few days to make sure, but it looks like it is fixed now. :cool:
