Customer Question

I think that the clutch slave cylinder failed. I lost all hydraulic pressure and fluid leaked out where the tubing goes into the transmission

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you actually see the leak? And is the fluid itself bright red, or is it dirty?

No I can't actually see what is leaking, the fluid was clear

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mitsubishi?

2007 eclipse spyder

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Eclipse Spyder yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't done anything yet. I would like to fix it myself if it's not too complex

Ok your vehicle is fitted with an internal clutch slave cylinder .this means the hydralic cylinder is inside the gearbox.you either have a leak in the pipe to the slave or the slave cylinder itself is leaking .you will need to inpect pipe to ensure its the slve thats the cause and if this is the case the gearbox/transmission has to be removed to replace
