    Hi Guys,

    For past 15 days, i have been observing that Clutch became very hard and Gears were Jammed thrice. Thank god i was not in traffic at the times.
    So i had confusion whether Clutch plate would have gone Kaput. But to my surprise, i found the oil leakage from right side of Engine.
    Today i have tried to see what is probable cause of leakage. I was not sure whether it is engine oil, Gear box oil leakage or Cylinder.
    At last i found that the leakage is from SLAVE CYLINDER:).
    Here are the pics. Please suggest me if anything need to be replaced apart from Slave Cylinder?
    Or any thing need to be checked.

    Hi Yashik,


    Thanks for Information.
    This car is preowned & Less driven. Current ODO is 15500 Kms. As it is 2008 Model, i think CSC is plastic one. Today i am visiting SC. Will update you progress.

    Most of the time just replacing the C.S.C would resolve the issue.
    I have replaced my 1.2's CSC (Metal Rod one) last month due to leakage.

    Weird sound from Clutch when pressed in Palio Stile MJD

    Seems new issue cropped up in my palio stile. Yesterday the car has done 842 Kms trip to somewhere near BEED , Maharastra.
    Today i observed that when Clutch is pressed i am hearing weird sound and when i depress the clutch it dissappears.
    Had anyone faced same kind of situation? Please give me inputs to resolve this problem.

    Note : There is no mileage problem - On Full tank it gave 842 Kms with atleast 5-7 litres left in the tank.

    Check the master cylinder now.
    Even I ran into the same issue once, so I had to replace both cylinders.
    Just check if the Master cylinder is producing sufficient pressure.

    It would be release bearing most probably.

    The sound is coming from Left side of Slave cylinder. It would be release bearing. Will go to FASS this weekend.
