Hi i just put a new master cylinder a month back now today my clutch felt hard and when i put it in reverse heard a broken sound clutch went flat and oil came from the master what can the problem be


A mechanical 'breaking noise' doesn't sound good. It's hard to diagnose a problem online without being there to see/hear the vehicle. But .. it may be that your clutch pressure plate has broken/ release/throwout bearing has broken?

It's difficult to see why the master cylinder should leak - unless it was incorrectly fitted in the first place?

Just to check ... The master cylinder is in the engine bay/compartment and is where you top up with clutch fluid. When a master cylinder fails it usually results in no pressure at the clutch pedal, not a leak.

The clutch slave cylinder is the one that does all the work. When you press the pedal hydraulic pressure is sent from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder - which then pushes the release/throwout bearing against the clutch pressure plate and 'disconnects' the driven plate .. allowing you to change gear.

The slave cylinder is the one that does all the hard work - it is located somewhere where engine and gearbox mate together, usually at the bottom right/left. It's usually the one that fails/leaks. It's quite easy to replace..

I don't think it is anything to do with reverse gear. It's more to do with the clutch pedal being depressed - and, I would suspect - something has failed.

The link below is generic images of a clutch:
clutch diagram Google Search

Basically, a clutch is 3 parts. There's the 'pressure plate' which bolts onto your flywheel. The pressure plate is a 'spring'. You depress the clutch pedal and the release/throwout bearing presses onto the centre of the pressure plate causing the 'fingers' - the springs - to bend back and take pressure off the driven plate - which is the link - the drive - between engine and gearbox.

If you have a leak your clutch will not work. This causes a 'grinding/crashing' noise when you try to change gear. The first thing you should do is check where the leak is coming from and do something about it.

The 'noise' that you mention may be due to the fact that the gears are 'grinding' as they try to mesh together without the use of the clutch.

The first thing you should do is check why there's a leak. It's difficult to see why a new master cylinder is leaking unless it was incorrectly fitted and damaged (pipes incorrectly connected..).

If it's the slave cylinder that is leaking - replace it. Easy job.

If Master cylinder and slave cylinder are ok - you have to look at your clutch unit. A clutch is always replaced with 3 parts ... throwout bearing/pressure plate and driven disk.

Does hydraulic slave cylinder bearing need greasing?

Hi Sheila:
The clutch slave cylinder pushes against a throwout arm
The throwout arm is a lever and it pushes against the throwout bearing which thenpresses against the clutch plate and dis-engages the clutch.
Throwout bearings are typically sealed units that last until they fail, at which time they get replaced.
You should not have to worry about greasing it.
Hope this helps.

Just changed the slave cylinder and master cylinder bled it but still no clutch what do i do?

what does NO mean.?
the pedal does not move the actuator on the clutch itself.?

takes 2 persons, one at pedal one at actuator at bell housing
would be nice to know engine size. sure.
my guess is clutch fails to dis-engage. (assumed)

the problem is there is no throwout arm inspection port on this engine
so you must guess blind. id take off the slave.
and put huge rubber bands on the end rod slave, holding the piston
and make sure the driver foot can move slave say 1 inch stroke.
if can, then the throw out parts are bad. or clutch disc warped bad.
test the slave. if slave works then move forward to the clutch,, actual.

one other trick park over night
and let all the bubble work up and out over night. (its all up hill and bubbles love to float up hill, your friend here,(just like air craft and motor cycles)

use a flash light in the slave port and see if the T/O lever is ok.
and the T/O bearing is not obliterated? crushed, collapsed> yet>

Throw out bearing runs all the time

Most likely Weak or broken spring on the trust bearing plate.How to check. When the clutch is fully released push the plate towards the slave cylinder the piston in the slave cylinder should go in. I have sometimes fitted an external spring from the plate to the bolt on the slave cylinder to save removing the gearbox which does work but to do it properly you will need to remove the gearbox and fit a proper spring.

Cant switch the gears clutch goes all the way to the floor line extreamly loose

since these are a hydraulic system, the level in the master cylinder needs to be checked. If it is empty, use dot 3 brake fluid to refill. Once it begins to work(you will need to pump it to regain the pedal)the 2 components need to be inspected for leaks and rebuilt or replaced as is necessary. If not, this will happen again. You have 2 components; the cltch master cylinder and the slave cylinder. The master is under the hood and the slave is at the side of the transmission. Pull the boot back on the slave cylinder and if fluid leaks out, rebuild or replace.

Cant put my 98 Hombre in gear.

There are 4 parts to this system. First is the clutch master cylinder, second is the slave cylinder, third is the clutch throwout bearing, and last is the clutch pressure plate. These are all the parts that can be the issue. The master cylinder is the part that pumps the fluid to the slave cylinder, which pushes on the linkage to the throwout bearing, which pushes on the fingers on the clutch pressure plate, releasing the clutch. If you drained the fluid out, first you need to make sure that all the AIR is out of the system. It's just like brakes, it will not pump if it has air in it. The hydraulic portion of the system rarely gives problems, so here's a question. How old is the clutch in your truck? If it's over 100,000 mi, then you should start suspecting the throwout bearing. Did the truck make any groaning noises when you pressed the clutch recently, and then perhaps it stopped on its own? These are signs of throwout bearings going out. Here's the bit of troubleshooting that you need. go under your truck, and find where the slave cylinder attaches and pushes on the linkage that goes into the bell housing on the transmission. Feel this linkage; it should have very limited to no movement. if it moves significantly, then your throwout bearing went out, and you will need to replace your clutch and throwout bearing. If not, then it's the hydraulic portion of the brakes, and you'll have to troubleshoot between air in the system, master cylinder failure, or slave cylinder failure.
