diaphram spring or the bearing, thats what the book says

timothy 05-06-2013 09:33 AM

how can i find out what it is

the spring is between the trans and the engine, so is the bearing, look for signs of fluid leak near the master cylinder, bleed the system, there is a bleeder screw near the trans, on the hydraulic line where it goes into the trans, check the play in your clutch pedal, see if you can adjust the play in the pedal. if the simple stuff like bleeding and clutch pedal adjusting doesn't do it, you will have to tear it apart.

i went under the truck and i dont see a bleeder screw i follow the holes from the master cylinder to the trans and all i see is the holes ending in a black part and the part is conneted to the side of the trans there no bleeder.

I had a similar problem. My pedal went right to the floor (soft) and I couldnt engage gears. It was my clutch slave. Easy to replace but a pain to bleed the line. I first pumped my pedal and used the bleed screw to no avail. Finally pulled the slave out again and hand pumped it. Worked like a charm and my clutch pedal is back to normal. Check the fluid in the master cylinder 1st to see what the level is, could be just low fluid.

So is the pedal soft when you push it down? Check for leaks on your floor? up in the firewall where the master cylinder comes in? Crawl underneath the drivers side and look for the clutch slave. Any leaks there? For me, my pedal went limp and would come back up but was soft to push down. It was the clutch slave. You can either replace the whole assembly ( master and slave) or just get the slave and do that. Its just a bit of work to bleed. Pump it by hand to get any air out instead of using the pedal.

no its not soft when i press the pedal. its fine when i press it. when i press the pedal i fell the pedal fine i can go in to gear but if i hold the pedal down for more the 3-5 sec i fell the pedal has lost pressure. say im going in to reverse and im backing up im in gear and im back up slowly i put my foot down to stop and get out of reverse i cant the i fell there no pressure. im still in reverse and the truck is still moveing and my foot the down on the pedal. can it be the clutch slave

Replace your clutch <slave cylinder> a new bleeder screw may be in order.

If you do replace slave, I would not bother with the bleeder screw on it. Just manually hand pump the slave to get the air out. I spent probably an 1 1/2hr pumping my pedal and using the bleed screw. Did not work. I removed the slave and hand pumped it slowly, keep it vertical while pumping. Make sure someone is watching the fluid in the master so that it does not empty. Keep a rag over the top if you have the cap off so it doesn't spray all over. You may have to hand pump 50 - 100 times but it was the only way I was able to bleed the line. I had a Dorman slave with a bleed screw. hope that solves your problem.
