    My 99 s-10 work truck has the hydaulic slave cylinder that sets directly behind the throw out bearing. You had to burry the pedal in the flor mat to get it to release, so I had the clutch, presure plate, master and slave cylinder replaced, all with no change whatsoever.:mad: What the ---- else is there other than the line between the master and slave? It's not leaking, how could it be that?:confused:

    Anybody got any ideas?

    Is it an all steel line?

    Air in line? Leaking line connections? Blown seal inside master or slave cylinder? Clutch pedal not hooked up correctly to master cylinder? Got enough fluid in the master cylinder? Just some quick ideas. These things are really really simple in design but can create headaches. Did you take the slave cylinder off to see if it moves correctly when its not pushing on the throwout?

    I'll bleed it again this evening. I didn't have any help so I had my mechanic do it. He usually does a pretty good job, but he may have missed something. I usually do this type of stuff myself, but it was the work truck and I'm short on time so I just had it done.

    It's a hard plastic line I don't see how it could be ballooning out without being cracked or broken?
