Default Broken Clutch

Clutch hydraulics broke today. Tube blew out where it joins the slave cylinder.

Need to know what repair is required so I don't get screwed by a shop.

I'm hearing new Master and Slave? Bleeding not possible? Is this true?

Since the clutch line blew, you may need to get a new clutch, pressure plate, and slave cylinder assembly. When mine blew on my Chevy(I know) it got hydraulic fluid all over these components and ruined them. The shop had to machine the flywheel and replace all the other parts. So with this, is it time to upgrade to a better clutch and pressure plate? I know with the NV5600 the slave assembly is one piece, so it has to be replaced as a unit, yours might be the same.

I would look at purchasing a new master/slave assembly from valair or southbend. They come as one piece so no need to bleed. How many miles are on that clutch?

If the clutch is still strong (and not slipping) ya may be ok (since it uses an external slave cylinder anyway). Although those dual mass setups are nothin but a pain so might as well upgrade anyway. :cool:

Getting it fixed now with OEM master/slave assembly. I need the truck. It's my only transportation.

The shop that towed me in will complete it today for 2.5 hr labor, ($400 and change with parts and tow).

Clutch was strong @ 74,000, but there will be a SB or Valair later or sooner.

Love the idea, but my projects are slow and get expensive. I break three more things for every one thing I fix.

Looked like bleeding was going to be an issue?

Default Happy now!

Got the truck back already and it's working great.

That linkage has been failing for some time now, but I didn't realize. Thought it was the tranny.

Shifts better now. Slides into gears easily. Thought it was synchros or shift linkage wear.

Thanks for the helpful replies. This is a good, knowledgeable group.
