02 accent slave cylinder leak and gear grind

Does the car want to pull when sitting still in gear with your foot on the clutch? If so, I would say that your clutch is not fully engaging and could be the cause of your grinding when changing gears. If not then I would think the clutch is operating fully and the synchros are worn and need replaced. But either way, with metalic fluid being in the slave cylinder dust boot, the slave cylinder needs changed.

1989 ford ranger transmission

I'll tell you like I tell everyone else, go to the local auto parts store, spend $25 on the repair manual for your truck and in the manual is a step by step procedure for replacing the clutch, P plate and bearing. This all entails removing the transmission. And a 1989 has a hydraulic clutch,and the slave cylinder is internal if I'm not mistaken, so why you have the trans removed you should also replace the slave cylinder because it'll be just your luck after you get it all back together the slave starts to leak.

I have a 2000 Hyundai Accent and my clutch fluid is empty. When refilling, how do I bleed it and where would the most possible place for a leak be located?

leak is usually at the slave cylinder. If leaking, replace the slave. Make sure to bench bleed the slave and plug its port before installing. refill the reservoir and bleed the system. To bleed, open bleeder at slave, have an assistant step on the pedal, and close the bleeder before they let the pedal up. Repeat until all air is out. If you have questions, please let me know.

Can't shift the gear

Is there fluid in the reservoirs? Did it leak out? Where? You can bleed the line just like your brakes and get the pedal pumping again. As long as there are no leaks, The bleeder screw is on the slave cylinder. Hope this helps.

What is a slave cylinder? and how do i replace it?

The clutch slave cylinder what hydraulicly releases the clutch. It works on the same principal as a brake wheel cylinder. To replace it you unbolt it and bolt on a new one, then bleed it like you do brakes.

How do you replace the slave cylinder

Step 1
Raise the vehicle and support with jack stand placed underneath the frame.
  • Step 2 Remove the cover from the reservoir on top of the clutch master cylinder. It will be located in the engine bay on the driver side of the firewall, near the brake master cylinder. Fill the reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry at any time during the bleeding process.
  • Step 3 Locate the clutch slave cylinder. It will be bolted to the clutch housing. Locate the small bleeder screw near where the hydraulic hose connects to the slave cylinder.
  • Step 4 Connect a length of clear plastic tube to the bleeder screw.
  • Step 5 Open the slave cylinder bleeder screw, by turning it counterclockwise. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal until clean brake fluid seeps out of the bleeder screw. Then close the bleeder screw. Make sure the clutch master cylinder does not run dry.
  • Step 6 Have the assistant pump the clutch pedal a few times and hold it against the floor. While the pedal is held against the floor, open the bleeder screw and allow the some fluid to seep out. Close the bleeder screw before releasing the clutch pedal.
  • Step 7 Repeat the process listed in the step above and watch the fluid seeping out of the slave cylinder. The clutch is fully bled when there are no more air bubbles in the fluid seeping out of the slave cylinder. You will be able to see the bubbles in the clear plastic tubing. Do not allow the clutch master cylinder to run dry at any point.
  • Step 8 Lower the vehicle.
