Porsche Crest Master or Slave?

1983 944, runs great, fresh tune up, but the clutch!
When slowly depressed, the clutch sinks all the way to the floor with virtually no resistance, when depressed quickly the clutch seems almost normal and full. The slave was replaced by a pro just 1.5 yrs ago, does this sound like a bad clutch master cyl. or should I flush fluid and bleed? Please help.

Thanks

I would change both of them while you are at it. and flush all the old fluid out of the system to get any contaminated stuff out.

My brand new master went bad 11 months after I installed it. Your new slave being bad is a possibility.

Also, my slave died about 6 months after the master initially died. I highly recommend replacing them both.

Also, a lot of people on this BBS have had their feed line between the master and slave crack when removed due to corrosion. Ya might want to have a new one on hand and replace it at the same time.

Good luck.

I'd replace the master, slave, the line between them and the little blue hose from the reservoir.

Wow, just try bleeding it first I think that's the most inexpensive route. Does the fluid level look low? Look under the dash and follow the clutch pedal to the top, you'll see where it's linked to the master cylinder, is the boot wet? Is your car leaving a spot of fluid from the bottom of the bellhousing? If none of these are the case, bleed it and live on.

Pulling the clutch up with your toe will really hurt your lap times. BTDT.
