F150 clutch issue

Asked by Feb 06, 2016 at 03:40 PM about the 2000 Ford F-150 Work SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2000 Ford F150 2wd, manual trans, grinds and
hard to put into reverse, once you start going,
gears easily shift, however when going to stop, and
clutch is depressed, it still tries to pull, like it's still
in gear. Is this a slave cylinder  issue?

Check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder first, make sure you pull out the rubber seal cup, I have seen people just put fluid right on top of it. If it is low then that could be your problem, you may ave to bleed the system, if it is full and makes good pressure then it most likely is the salve cylinder, but if it is I would replace both the slave and master as a set, just due to the age. If I remember right I believe that you have to remove the tranny to gain access to the clutch slave cylinder and if that is the case you better do the clutch while your there.

I have checked the fluid, bled the system etc. I know that I do have to pull tranny. Just wanted to get another opinion if the slave cylinder sounded right. Thanks alot for your info.
