clutch went out

well my clutch finally died this morning... i was just driving along and i thought it felt a little strange and then it went straight to the floor with no resistance... im guessing the master or slave cylender but i really have no idea... anyone have any idea how much this is gonna cost to fix?

you could always opt for a full racing clutch. there is one company that makes offroad clutches, street racing clutches, and drag clutches and the entire assemblies that go with them but i forget what it was but it was on HP tv before. sounded pretty nice but im guessin you dont want to spend a lot of money.

From case history its probably the slave cylinder. If it is the slave cylinder your looking at replaceing the slave cylinder, clutch assembly, and it would be a good idea to resurface the flywheel. Factory clutch is produced by LuK (www.lukclutch.com). I've heard of people being quoted around $1100 for everything.

It's still not on warranty i guess.....My sister screwed up her clutch (and a whole lot more) in her 03 wrangler and it ran for around 3K....BUT we had the extended warranty so we only have to pay like 300.

It's not hard to do yourself. Clutch kit is around $250 for the factory style, I think, more for an aftermarket (upwards of $450). Not sure about a slave cylinder. Most of the cost is in labor.

well i did a little investagation and the slave cylender is all that seems to be bad... but ford in their infinate wisdom decided to put it inside the bellhousing so you have to remove the tranny

Could you start the truck, but just not put it into gear? If so that happened to me about a month ago. It was my slave cylinder. It cost me $400 to replace (mainly labor). It is because the slave cylinder (and damn you Ford for this) is inside the bellhousing which is inside of the transmission itself. It's rediculous. The part costs $80. If it is the master cylinder you are actually in luck! It is right on the firewall near the clutch fluid and only takes about an hour or so to replace. But chances are it is your slave cylinder.
