Ok, this isn't neccesarily meaningless, but it sure isn't about Java.
Anyone know where the clutch slav cylinder is on a 4Runner? My 4Runner has a leak in the line from clutch master cylinder right where it connects to the transmission I know where it is but not sure of the name of the part, I think it is the slave cylinder and wanted to make sure. Of course, I can always just take it off and let the people at the parts store tell me what it is

But WHY when you have a bunch of Java Geeks right here to ask .
Lets start with the basics. A 4Runner. That would be a vehicle of some sort - yes?

Clutch? Isn't that the one that controls indicator lamps?

I think it controls the plasma manifold jets whenever the chromaton particles that collimate inside the jeffries tubes interfere with the warp signature in subspace, but I'm not really sure on this one.

Well, what year is it? Not that I can help you,
but knowing the year is a requirement.
And did you try click and clack the tappet
brothers at car talk?
My 4 liter Ranger has a problem with carbon
build up and it seems like I found a few sites
that could never help me.

Is that some sort of Polish joke?

Oh, Ok, lets now define a Clutch!
Its a heavy metal band (like a ribbon, but really heavy, heavier than steel), which can control plasma molecules (err.. refer to the electronics shop manager, he sells Plasma TVs) coming from outer-sub-space (err.. talk to that real-estate agent next door, who always talks about space), and for good results it should be polished well!
Meeting over - lets get things going folks!
Project Manager.
PS: Its good to see you happy Dave!

Have you bought a repair manual for your 4Runner? I have bought the 'Haynes' brand manual for my car. Mine has some transmission stuff in it, but my little front wheel drive 4 banger is technically quite different than yours!
I bought it last year when I couldn't afford a mechanic to replace my CV joints. Since then I've replaced the brakes and rotors, given it a tune up, and am currently replacing the radiator($$$). But a transmission($$$$$$$$) and transmission accessories($$$) is not yet in my portfolio of mechanical repairs. I must stress YET!

Dave,
I believe that you've correctly identified the part. You'll likely need either a rebuild kit (which comes with a few small rubber parts and probably a new piston), or a rebuilt or new slave cylinder. If you have a socket set and time to get dirty, you can save yourself lots of money by replacing or rebuilding the slave cylinder yourself - it isn't terribly difficult or complicated.
The first time that I rebuilt a brake master cylinder, I had a heck of a time after installation just trying to bleed the system. It took me a while to discover that you sometimes have to prime the new (and dry) cylinder in order to get fluids to begin to flow. So, if after installation of the new or rebuilt part, you find yourself pumping away on the clutch pedal, but the fluids won't flow (and the system won't bleed), then you probably didn't prime the cylinder and you should do so by simply filling it with some fluid.
If you haven't already done so, I recommend that you shell out the fifteen dollars and buy the Haynes and/or Chilton manual for your vehicle. It probably won't detail rebuilding the slave cylinder, but it'll have lots of other nice information.
For my vehicles, I go so far as to contact the publishers of the official shop manuals and spend the $70 to get my own copy. These books are big with lots of details.
If I weren't thousands of miles away, I'd be glad to help you.
Good Luck.

I bought the Haynes and the Chilton for my Ranger.
I like the Haynes better. Having both is handy.
That is, until they give conflicting advice.
I replaced my front disc pads. Everybody ought to do this once. I had trouble getting the spindle nut tight enough. But the next time they drag me out on the floor at Midas, I won't just be a mindless zombie along for a ride.
