Question about 1996 Toyota Camry
Clutch pedal cylinder not delivering the fluid to the slave and master cylinder, the pedal stays in up ot\r down position. ( a wrong fluid has been mixed when top up). How to repair this?
Well if you have mixed a wrong type of fluid (such as power steering or oils) you are going to have to replace the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. Before you install
the new parts be sure to drain all the old fluid out of the clutch
line, and flush the clutch line with brake cleaner and blow compressed
air thru until its clean and dry. install your new parts and fill with fresh (NEW) fluid whatever the manufacturer recommends
most any DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluids will work (read the cap on the
resivoir) and proceed with bleeding the air from the system, i usually fill up the resivoir with the bleed screw open(on the slave) until
fluid with no air comes out and then proceed with the bleeding process
this is called gravity bleeding and will help speed things along be
sure to rate this and good luck this is not very hard to do and should
take about an hour HERE IS THE MASTER
AND HERE IS THE SLAVE about $80 in parts altogether including fluid please rate _JEFF

Fig. Fig. 1: Block the clutch pedal to prevent slave cylinder damage, should the pedal be depressed while the cylinder is removed from the transaxle
Fig. Fig. 2: To remove, rotate the slave cylinder about 1/4 turn counterclockwise while pushing toward the bell housing
Fig. Fig. 3: This plastic retaining strap must remain on the slave cylinder to ensure proper seating of the actuator rod against the release fork
Fig. Fig. 4: Rotate the clutch master cylinder about 1/8 turn clockwise and remove it from the instrument panel
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING The clutch hydraulic assembly has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. Do not attempt to bleed the hydraulic system. While the unit does not require periodic checking, it must be serviced, when necessary, as a complete assembly. The system is full when the reservoir is half full.
Only DOT 3 brake fluid should be added to the system. If the fluid level drops, inspect the system, including the slave cylinder, for leakage. A slight wetting of the slave cylinder surface is normal. Fill the clutch master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid. Be careful not to spill brake fluid on the painted surface of the vehicle.
