1994 SL1
Default Manual Transaxle

I have a '94 Saturn SL-1 with the SOHC engine and manual transaxle, and a few questions....

1. what sense has the screw on the upper side on the slave hydraulic clutch cylinder?

2. I think that my clutch must be replaced, do I need a shift tower gasket? I don't know where I can get one, COZ rockauto.com doesn't have this part listed

3. I must press my clutch pedal very hard on the carped for shifting in the 1st gear, the 2nd ..... is a bit better, my Saturn has 157tsd mls on it and I think it's the first clutch, what do you think, it's the clutch or the clutch hydraulic system?

Marco

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

check your clutch fluid. If its full then i would suspect it to be the clutch depending on how you drive. But i would just replace your hydros and the clutch.

You don't need to touch the shift tower if you R&R a clutch. [I had clutch problems last spring and messed with the shift tower, the cover plate just popped off easily, the gasket was in good shape and didn't tear.]

I don't understand your question #1.

You should do 2 tests.

Front bumper against a tree OR front wheels against a high curb, put in 5th gear, rev engine a little and let out the clutch, it should stall instantly. If not, the clutch is worn. The clutches on these cars (original clutch) are very durable.

Then, look up the "wire" test for clutch hydraulics, this will tell you if the slave cylinder is transferring motion to the clutch lever. Or, if there is no motion, the C.H. system is bad.

If your clutch is bad, I suggest Clutch City, last spring the Luk kit was $159 to my door, in 3 days. Original quality. Get a Luk kit.

The Schofield Kid: Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.
