Which dealer did you buy it from?

I just called a couple local dealers and the don't have it, said it was on back order, and I would need a VIN to order it.....and no ETA on arrival.

Anyone have a GTO VIN they can PM to me so I can use it?

The issue is the same one experianced by the C5 & C6 vettes for years. The real issue is several design flaws not corrected properly since 1997. First the line from the master to the slave runs to close to the exhaust, and adding headers makes it even more of an issue since the heat causes the fluid to breakdown & and develop sludge, which reduces the ability of the fluid to move back and forth through the system.

Second, the resivoir on the master is to small for agressive driving allowing the fluid to break down to quickly (you can do frequent changes like the road course guys do and avoid the issue).

The cars driven "normally" (read: slow shifts) rarely encounter this issue, but quick & frequent fast shifts and clutch action are where it rears it's ugly head.

There have been several fixes through the years, the "drill" mod, different fluids, etc., but the only real solution is a remote large capacity resivoir and a way to move, or circulate the fluid through it so there is always a fresh, cool, clean supply of fluid to the system.

Not very practical for the everyday average driver, but a great mod for the agressive driver or road racer.

I have not released this system yet, but if anyone wants more info let me know.

So let me pose this question, if the GTO reservoir seems to be a bugger to get, why couldnt one get another Camaro reservoir and use that in tandem? It it has the to outlets use that bridged into one line, so you would have the original reservoir for the brake system. Then the second Camaro reservoir with two lines going to a "Y" for the clutch??
Crazy idea?
Cheers

Reservoir connects to the master cylinder. Youd end up with 2 holes in the bottom.

If you go to your dealer and give them a GTO vin you shouldnt have a problem. Msrp is $20. If you buy parts at the dealer regularly theyll start cutting you deals. 5% over cost ran me $14 w/tax.

Camaro-
The issue appears to be the GTO res is backordered or cant be gotten. So my thought is to get another camaor res which is the same for the auto or man except for a tab is broken off for the manual to add the clutch line.
*Add the second camaro res but dont break off the tab so its a single line- this could be for the clutch or for the brake
*use the existing res but add a "Y" or plug the other line out.

Problem solved, add a larger res and (I assume since I havent gotten it yet) obtain a more readily available reservoir.

Cheers

Except you would have to find a way to plug the to large holes in the bottom of the res where it mounts to the master cylinder before you could use it.

It sounds like he ordered a whole nother master cylinder assembly, #4, which wouod leave you with a hole in the front where it connects to the brake booster i think.

I would make sure its backordered and not on hold from gm though since i just got one yesterday and i just had to supply a vin to release the hold. Its worth a shot? What about the ls1 gto reservoir?

I did notice the old reservoir states dot 4 only and ours comes with 3 i think someone said.

Oh crap!!!!
No I ordered #6, which should be fine however now I am not sure I have a way to mount it.
You ever have a moment where you think you have a really good idea and then you realize its a facepalm and have to laugh? I think I just did.

Thanks.....I may have found one at a dealership. They said they had 3 in stock and they are working up my order right now. As soon as it gets processed I'll post the info because there will only be 2 left.

No VIN # needed.

Holding my breath and keeping my fingers crossed.

Ok....so I got taken by the Stealership but at least I've got one coming.

$20.25 part
$16.00 shipping
$36.25 total

No vasaline or reach around....

Hope to have less than $50 in the overall mod. Still not that bad if you think about the insurance it can give you.


Homestead Chevy/Cadillac
Homestead, FL
(305) 248-0717

They should have a couple left as of right now.

Anyone know if there is a specific size of plug used to cap off the brake resivoir? Or, did you just have to try a few until you found one that fit (as oil is coming out )?

I'm also assuming that I'll have to be quick when removing the hose for the clutch from brake resivoir and then plugging it because fluid will be coming out pretty fast.

One other question.....did you top off the brake resivoir with DOT 3 since that's what it says or did you mix DOT 4 with the DOT 3 fluid?

One of the posts in here says the size. The reservoir comes with a clear cap but i doubt it seals at all. I was going to take it with me for sizing. Still havent put mine in. Did an intake install this week. The v6 now roars at WOT!

Thanks for your help.

I would remove the fluid from the reservoir before you disconnect the hose. I'm planning on using a large syringe or turkey baster. After everything is connected, refill with fresh fluid. Most DOT 3 and DOT 4 fluids can be mixed...just check the label on the bottle first, just to be sure.
