CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER
Clutch Master Cylinder : A hydraulic clutch system uses the clutch master cylinder to push fluid when the clutch pedal is depressed into the clutch slave cylinder releasing the clutch. The clutch master cylinder contains a piston that displaces the clutch fluid into the slave cylinder converting the foot pressure into hydraulic pressure. The piston size, stroke length and bore diameter all determine how much hydraulic pressure can be inserted into the slave cylinder.
When a clutch master cylinder fails, air can aerate the hydraulic fluid thus reducing the amount of force pressure applied to the clutch. A typical failure of the clutch master cylinder may include a clutch pedal that falls to the floor or just feels weak, no clutch disengagement when the pedal is pressed, or a hard gear engagement or grind during applying the gears. Clutch fluid usually leaks out causing a low fluid condition when there is a faulty clutch master cylinder of any other hydraulic clutch leak.
