Clutch was working fine for years. Clutch Net pressure plate/disc assembly and throwout bearing has about 5000mi.. Slave cylinder is older ('84 ?) long stroke. Hydraulic line has no air. Driving to work and at destination clutch went almost to floor, grabbing ~ 1/2in. from floor. Driving home from work, pedal went away totally. Good thing I know how to up/downshift w/o clutch! No sign of fluid leakage anywhere. Do I suspect master or slave first, and is there a way to test before I start replacing parts? Thanks, Ray in TX.
You kind of hate just throwing parts at a problem, but since there is only really two parts to work with it may be the easiest thing to do, I would go with a complete unit, but then I have money in my pocket. First I would check to see that nothing is bent under the dash, then buy parts. Larry
At least on V6s, I know they used a different clutch fork till mid 86. It was a welded up conglomeration of bits and pieces. I had one fall apart on my 86 4 spd. I had to nurse it back home shifting without a clutch. After mid 86 they went to a one piece solid fork. Its a direct bolt in replacement, but kit does include a new pivot shaft which is different than the older one. You will have to pull the transaxle to replace it. If it wasnt your master cylinder, thats where your problem probably is.
