so i just replaced my clutch and slave cylinder a little while back and now... i'm having problems AGAIN
It did great for the first month or so...
Now, after driving for a couple days my clutch has almost no pressure. It feels like it's almost out of fluid, has air in the lines, or SOMETHING.
Check the fluid..... still about full (i'm bad about filling to the line exactly but it looks to be about the same level as I left it when i last bled the system and filled the resevoir).
I loosen up the bleeder screw at the bellhousing and let the fluid run out.... gravity pulls it out and as it does, I am refilling the resevoir.
After i let about 2 resevoirs worth of fluid run out i run around the jeep, dive under it, and tighten up the bleeder screw.
Then i top off the fluid in the resevoir....
She's good to go for a couple days... then it's at it again... low pedal, crappy pressure.... not good.
good for a couple/few days... then REPEAT.
has anyone ever had a problem like this before? I don't see any leaks... I don't think it's leaking... but it could be a slow leak i suppose..... BUT even with a slow leak, the clutch should work fine if there is fluid in the resevoir.... or at least when my old clutch slave cylinder was leaking that was the case.
What do you guys with experience in this area think?
I hate to think that I have to drop the tranny/tcase AGAIN... though my rear main seal, which i replaced when i did the clutch, appears to be leaking
kinda hard to tell since i have so many oil leaks (dipstick tube mainly, but it's bad)
what are your opinions guys?
