    2001 RT10 Slave Cylinder Crapped the bed

    Long boring story short my slave cylinder went out yesterday. So looks like I'll be replacing that soon. My questions is, what are the "while you're in there" items that I should replace? Car has 32k miles on it.

    Clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, flywheel, I also added a remote bleed hose from Snake Oyl Products to make bleeding easier to access. I did all this at 8,000 miles minus a flywheel due to my slave cyl failing due to age.

    Trans drops so easily that you don't need to go overboard with it. I simply swapped the slave cylinder and put things back together as my clutch was in great shape. However, at your mileage, I'd go ahead and replace the clutch. Make sure you have the quick disconnect tool for the hydraulic line. You can disconnect the shifter from the bottom using a crowfoot, which alleviates having to pull the console and access things from the top.

    With Complete Performance Motorsports just over the border in Ohio you might consider taking it over there as they would be in a good position to replace what appeared to be a wise or necessary replacement with all their experience modding and repairing Snakes.

    Of course, we don't know why this slave cylinder failed, but this thread is a good reminder to bleed the system every few years, or decade, or something to remove contaminants.

    With the OEM vendor LUK clutch/pressure plate <$200 at Rock Auto, it would be hard for me not to replace it.

    Also the pilot bearing. Mine was only rusty fragments of needle bearings, yet was quiet.

    Western Reserve sponsor as well! I want to try and gain the knowledge myself of working on the car. Complete Performance does great work though.

    I usually replace all fluids in the car every three years with the exception of motor oil. That I do every year. Last year I was suppose to replace all the fluids but life got in the way. My region has a tech day planned for the end of April and I was gonna do all the fluids then. Oh well. I'll tell ya one thing though, im gonna put in a remote bleeder and do that fluid every year as well.
