2001 L-Series 2.2L Sedan
Default 2001 L200 manual trans slave cylinder

Anyone have any pointers on replacing the slave cylinder in the manual trans? I'm hoping I won't have to completely drop it, but rather slide it over to the left as far as I can to get access. I do have Alldatadiy, but can't seem to find many details on actually removing the trans.

Thank you,

Don

I haven't done a slave cylinder replacement yet, but will need to soon as mine is intermittently troublesome. According to SSICARMAN, who really knows this stuff
"On the L-series there is definitely enough room to move the trans over into the opening between the engine frame and the body frame.
With the trans moved over you are able to get to the slave cylinder and unbolt it to remove it. Take care to not strip out the torx head bolts for the slave."

Please do let us know how this project goes for you.

Good, was hoping that was the case. Mine never had any trouble until we took a road trip a couple weeks ago, went to leave and had no clutch. Wife hates the car now and wants me to get rid of it, especially since back in Feb it had the timing chain go, which fortunately caused no damage to the valves. Once this is done I'm hoping that's it for a while...

Thank you,

Don

Fun project so far, not even halfway done since I haven't had much time to work on it. Got the trans moved to the side, and found that this isn't the first time the slave has been replaced. Torx heads are partially stripped out, so I'll have to try and get them out, should be fun with a small amount of room to work in.

It's great to hear that there was indeed enought room to get at the clutch components without dropping the subframe. I would be interested in a photo of the separation possible with the tranny pulled over. Are you replacing the disc and pressure plate while you're in there?

Good luck with those torx bolts. SSICARMAN's earlier advice, and the warning about the bolts, were dead-on as usual.

hi av8r- do remember a few years ago discussing this matter with ssicarman who said the trans can be pushed all the way to the left when unbolted to get you hands in to the clutch plate and slave. if you did strip the threads where the torx bolts tighten to the inner housing, rethreading would seem hellacious. can it be done without a trip to shysterville? thanks tons bob f

Bob you do realize that av8r has not posted since 2012. You probably arenít going to get a response from him. If you pull the transmission for any reason you will want to replace the rear main seal, the complete clutch and the throw out bearing. Drain and loosen the fill plug with the transmission out. I did not use the GM approved oil when I had my car apart, but I used a good quality synthetic 75/90 and it shifts fine.

...
