Clutch Master Cylinder

The clutch master cylinder generates the hydraulic pressure necessary to operate the clutch by pushing hydraulic fluid through a pipe into the clutch slave cylinder.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Clutch Master Cylinder

  • Clutch may not work properly, or may not work at all
  • Clutch pedal may sink to the floor
  • Gears may be hard to shift
  • Clutch fluid leak or a need to top off the fluid

Clutch Master Cylinder Related Repair Advice

  • During this replacement, the clutch fluid should be flushed until clean and clear
  • On some newer vehicles, the clutch master and slave cylinders, along with the connecting hydraulic line, are combined in a single assembly and not serviced separately
  • Vehicles may use a clutch cable or mechanical linkage instead of the master/slave hydraulic system
