I did a lil searching but didn't find anything about this so... I bought an 01 Xterra SE with 110k miles. Had a mechanic friend do the vcg and timing belt. Since the tb was making a lil noise. Also had a leaky slave cylonder replaced. Now he said the clutch slips like it needs to be replaced. Like if you're in 3rd and try to accelerate hard. Is it possible something isn't right after the slave was swapped and bled? Is there anything wonky that needs to be done? Or is it just need to replace the clutch? Should the master cylinder be replaced as well?

Thanks

Bobby

If the clutch was good before the slave cyl replacement i would say its not adjusted correctly.

Any idea how to adjust? I can't say it was perfect... But it seemed to get worse as the slave cylinder leaked more.... The reservoir in the master never got real low or empty. Ever.

Ok update.... Slave cylinder was done... Pedal is no different. Master being done tomorrow. I push the pedal to the floor and it barley comes up. I have to pull it up with my foot. I can push the pedal in and get it in gear but it seems like it's slow to engage.

Ryan.... That seems like it could be part of the issue. I'll check into that. From reading the article I'm hoping that's not it. Doesn't look like a good time.

You should plan on a new flywheel and new clutch fork and pilot bearing if you want problem free install. Also there 2 or 3 different flywheels so check the thickness and size closely before you install or you will have a problem with the starter and will need to start over.

I used the Exedy clutch kit and Sachs flywheel. I got the clutch fork from Nissan. No complaints so far. When I pulled the transmission one of the pressure plate bolts was backed out. May have been a contributing factor. I also had oil contamination from the oil pan leaking.
