How do they operate on our applications? I tried searching the net and only found general info but nothing particular to our cars.
Reason I am asking is because as many know I have had off and on clutch problems but recently I had the complete 2010 clutch kit with flywheel pressure plate, slave cylinder and so on replaced.
But today after driving for a long time in the heat, I noticed the same problems I have always had propping back up like, a clutch pedal that just does not feel right, does not release like it should and so forth. But what really got me to go, "huh" was when I tried pressing the brakes firmly for a quick stop, the brake pedal did not have the correct feel, it was very hard, almost like I had no brakes. The car stopped but the pedal did not feel right.
This is when I got thinking, that perhaps my master cylinder is not working properly and I have heard that both the hydraulic clutch and our power brakes run off this so that may explain my problems.
Could anyone with more information on these parts please chime in. Part numbers would be very helpful and how to go about replacing as well perhaps.
I trried googling and found nothing.
I am unsure why it happened after a whole lot of driving today in the heat but maybe someone could figure that one out.
Anyway, I am thinking that if this is my issue, perhaps some of these so called clutch problems are really nothing to do with the clutch but the hydraulics.
Thanks a lot in advance
