    How do you change out the clutch slave cylinder on a 1991 Mercury Capri?
     
    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      This vehicle uses two types of clutch release systems. Turbocharged vehicles with type G transaxles use a mechanical cable system. Non-turbocharged vehicles with type F2 transaxles use a hydraulic clutch system.

      1.Disconnect hydraulic line from slave cylinder and plug to prevent fluid loss.
      2.Remove two retaining bolts, then slave cylinder.
      3.Reverse procedure to install, noting the following:
      a.Torque retaining bolts to 12-16 ft lbs .
      b.Fill reservoir and bleed clutch system

      It is possible that your brakes and clutches inside your tranny is worn/stuck. Try to use the Find a Shop feature of AutoMD to see a list of shop near you with their address, telephone # and labor rate per hour. You can call a couple of them to compare prices and opinions.

      If the check engine light is on, have it scanned. You may be in limp mode. Try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes. This should clear any electronic codes. If the transmission starts shifting, you may have picked up a slipping code in the snow. If the light comes back on, it's a real code and you should have it checked out.

    I can't get the key to turn in the ignition. It is completely locked up. What's the problem?

      At the very least, the ignition lock cylinder has failed and needs to be replaced which is substantially more difficult to do when the key cannot be positioned one notch forward which is what is required to do in order for the release pin below the lock cylinder to allow itself to be pushed in and release the cylinder. In this case the ignition lock cylinder and housing needs to be replaced together. A real experienced mechanic may be able to find a way around this. I can usually.

    ATT. HOUSECALLAUTO my wife's mom paid to have a new clutch put in her car 2 days go by then the master cylinder went

      So it seems that each time you bleed the clutch slave, after that it is OK for a little while and then the pedal starts to sink (like when a brake master cylinder fails) and when that happens it is not the brake pedal that sinks, it is the clutch pedal. she is waiting at a light, no doubt in first gear with her foot holding the clutch pedal to the floor and at this moment the clutch master cylinder has the most amount of pressure being exerted on it. If the clutch master is a defect (re-manufactured unit probably, right?) the clutch will slowly begin to grab and it will stall at a light like you describe. My conclusion is - you have a defect clutch master or there is a brake fluid leak that you missed seeing.

      Kevin i do thank you very much i will be bringing back the master cylinder it is a new one not a re-manufactured one i got it at auto zone........LOL and i have not seen any leaks because i have been looking each time i do this and its bone dry all around the master cylinder also i like to apologize if i got you mad for adding some answer's to yours i am not saying i know everything because i don't you my friend have a lot knowledge and i am still learning as of today i only wish i knew half of what you know . i look up to you as corny as that may sound but your the best i ever seen and someday i would like to meet you but anyways i do apologize thank-you very much for your time and hope you have a good night:)

      Joe, no words necessary for adding answers. It's all good. Thanks for being my cheerleader and thanks for the kind words.
      I think that if you replace that clutch master and bleed it again like you said, that should resolve the problem.

      you really can't not without taking the steering column apart. one possibility is to remove the shift linkage fromt he tranmission and manually put the car in neautral at the transmission. But This being a 2001 might have an internal electronic shifter meaning shifting is electronic and not mechanical. it probably easiest to get a key coded or replace the key and cylinder.

    How do you change the speed sensor
    i don't know how to get it out of the tranny
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Raise the vehicle onto jack stands. If your vehicle sits very low to the ground, jack it up onto jack stands. Use the front jack point behind the radiator to raise the vehicle up. Place jacks stands underneath the front pinch welds and lower the vehicle onto the stands. Climb under the vehicle and locate the speed sensor. The sensor is located on the bottom of the transmission, or it may be located on either side of the transmission housing. It looks like a small plug sticking out of the transmission with an electrical plug connected to its end. Remove the electrical plug by squeezing the release tab on the top of the plug and pulling the connection apart. Remove the sensor by turning it counterclockwise with an open-end or a crescent wrench. Install the new speed sensor. Installation is the reverse of removal.

    My cars transmission feels like it loses power the catches over and over if i push it too hard to go up a hill
    what is wrong with my transmission
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      I think its not the transmission, your problem is an excessive backpressure due to plugged catalytic converter. Have a backpressure test to verify this.
