Ok take the clutch maste cylinder cap off on the handlebars,get a ball of tissue and gently put it into the fluid it will soak it up,repeat this until its dry in there but make sure you dont drip it anywhere or it will damage your paintwork,also do NOT pull the lever in yet,then fill it 3/4 up with new fluid ,then put a spanner on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder on the left hand side of the engine ,then put a clear pipe onto the end of the nipple and get a small coke bottle or similar and make a hole in the cap which is a snug fit for the pipe push the pipe in then loosen the cap slightly so it can breathe,then gently pull the lever in and hold it in ,then undo the nipple until some fluid comes into the pipe then do it back up ,let the lever out and pull it back in and loosen the nipple again holding the lever again as before,repeat this until the fluid runs clean ,Make sure the fluid does NOT run out during this as you will be back at square one ,if easier get someone to keep an eye on the level and top it up when needed.good luck Adam.

Woke up found my jaguar 2002 X type (petrol) clutch pedal on floor. No signs of leakage of fluid. After pumping clutch up and down several times, clutch returns. A few mins after no clutch.


sounds like the concentric clutch slave cylinder is faulty/leaking, is there any sign of fluid loss from the resovoir, it uses the brake resovoir for its fluid supply, the leaked fluid is probably in the flywheel houslng, big job to change. front subframe has to be removed, if its a 2.5 or 3.0ltr transfer box also.

When gasing the engine tranny slips


If you have a manual transmission it is time to replace your clutch. If you have an automatic transmission it is time for a transmission rebuilt. You can have your auto trans fluid and filter changed and this might help, but I doubt it. There is very little you can do for a slipping clutch in a manual tranny except replace the clutch. If you have a manual tranny with a clutch that is manual adjusted then the cluth may be out of adjustment, but I doubt you have a manually adjusted clutch it is more then likely hydralic.

Transmission/clutch fluid


The engine oil also lubricates the transmission and clutch. There is no separate procedure for changing it, changing the engine oil is all there is.
