Hypothetically speaking, before selling a much older car with a manual transmission would you at least check the clutch/cylinders/cables, etc, to be sure that what drives the car is intact and functioning properly?
My friend had his friend, the mechanic, check out the car and drive it for a few days to be sure everything was working. I do believe the mechanic is competent but when I asked my friend why the leak in the slave cylinder wasn't noticed before, he told me it's not common to check for something like that. True/False?
Also (I have many questions!), If you have to remove the transmission to access the slave cylinder to repair the leak, how would you know there Was a leak without removing the transmission to access the slave? And if it's a "code" thing, wouldn't it have registered when checking them the first time?
Again, I truly value your time, and sincerely appreciate all of your help. I am always grateful for the chance to learn. :)
