    Master / Slave Cylinder leaking or going bad

    Today I had my 1st problem with my VT. Exactly a year from the day I bought her...LOL!!! I was backing out of a parking spot & my clutch stayed stuck all the way in...I pumped it a few times, but it wouldn't pop back out. Reached down & yanked it up. Looks like my slave cylinder is either leaking or going bad. It's happened twice now, so I have an appointment with the dealer on Monday. Just wanted to post my experience here in case anyone else ever encounters this problem. Dealer should replace master cylinder free of charge. I'll update the outcome Monday after my visit with the dealer...Going to try to talk the service manager into upgrading my shifter knob to the 2014 because mine is starting to peel.

    is it like this?



    Possible causes:

    Some gear oil is seeping into the clutch assembly, they need to rip it apart to find out what's really going on.

    Dealer will pull the tranny. See it was leaking inside (while looking in through where the input shaft goes). Dealer not allowed to break it open so Hyundai approved all new assembly (clutch, slave cylinder, etc).

    I sure hope you won't be needing a new clutch after having this happen

    Sorry guys...Crazy busy day yesterday! Had my Monday Meeting at work, then got a call that my son was sick, then I had my appointment at the dealer. They checked to see if it was leaking & there were no signs of leaks, so they ordered me a New Master Cylinder. It will be here Thursday & they will keep my baby over night & provide me with a loaner. I'm going to try to convince them to loan me a Gen. I'm going to tell them I was thinking of buying one, so wanted to know if I could get one as my loaner I have 22K miles & all repairs are covered under my warranty. Zero out of pocket costs

    Picked my car up from the dealer yesterday & she felt good. The clutch actually feels better than the 1st day I bought her, but sadly today the clutch got stuck again. That means I have to take her back to the dealer when I get back from Tampa next week I wonder wtf it is now?! They put a brand new master cylinder. I wonder if it's something with the actual pedal

    Sorry you're headed for the shop again...slave would be the next stop.

    Or maybe you need to stop working legs so much and focus on upper body only if you're stomping the clutch so hard that you're driving it into the floorboards

    Yup! That's what I told them to check 1st. The service manager checked the slave for leaks, but he said all looked good, so they changed the master cylinder. I'll be taking my car back as soon as I get to Miami

    Sorry... "All this talk of early clutch issue/failure sure makes me glad I just switched from A/T to M/T! <insert sarcasm here> lol.

    Honestly, it seems like I never heard a peep about torn up clutches at 30k miles or unresponsive pedals until I went from auto to manual. Guess I just wasn't paying attention

    Lol. It's hard to read sarcasm on the internet unless you use an emoticon or "..." at the end. At least for me.

    I think both A/T and M/T have had there fair share in issues with the clutch. I see more about A/T though, but that could be due to me being a DCT owner.
