Clutch master cylinder bad?
Today I went to drive to work and found the clutch was at the floor. The car had been sitting for about a week, but the clutch worked fine before.
I looked underneath and saw that there were some traces of fluid on the carpet and around the clutch master cylinder.
I pretty sure that replacing this will take care of my problem, but what I don't understand is why the clutch pedal would go to the floor by itself??
If there was a slow leak and fluid dirbbled out over a week, would the pedal be up and then of course when I push on it, it would have little resistance and go right to the floor.
I see there is a person on eBay (directauto) selling them for $36 with free shipping. Seems like a good price.
Thanks for any input/comments.
Good question about being on the floor. When mine failed it was up and then thumped down when I stepped on it and then stayed there. I'd be checking the pedal pivot itself to see if the spring failed/came off.
Unless, my coffee hadn't kicked in yet this morning and I wasn't thinking clearly. I suppose it's possible that it was up and didn't take but a little pressure for it to flop down with a bit of an aid from the spring.
I have another question, I noticed the fluid level was at the min mark, but not any lower. Shouldn't the master cylinder still operate on low fluid. It seems like it would have to be way low...drawing in air to not work....
It should still operate normally at the "low" line and not be sucking any air
