The bleeder screw or fitting is located either directly on the clutch master cylinder or it will look like a normal bleeder screw on the plastic hardline. with the line cracked open have somebody push the pedal down and hold. Tighten the plug and repeat. Also look under neath your dash, there is a bushing on the clutch pedal arm that car wear out. It should be white in color.

Hydraulic clutch


yes you have to bleed the slave cylinder at the clutch-look around for wettness due to a leak while you bleed it- start by cheking the fluid level and keep full while bleeding-you will need 2 people to bleed-one to pump it up,hold it down then another underneath to open the bleeder-only open for a short time,then close and pump up again-should only take like 3 times-don't let the peddle up while bleeder is open and don't let the resivour run out of fluid or you'll just pump more air into system- cheers Denny

Why does clutch leak off and wont go into gear 96 toyota tacoma when you push on clutch pedal goes to the floor it wont engage clutch to be able to put into gear


the most likely reason is either the clutch master cyl. needs to be replaced.or the.slave cyl. its mounted down on the transmation under the hood find the resivore for the clutch. check the fluid level.if its low , fill it back up , and look for signs of a leak
you will probally have to bleed out all of the air from the system.its done almost the same way as bleeding the brakes. Good Luck.

Replaced whole clutch and slave cylinder on 1996 Toyota T100 2wd 2mos. ago. Today while driving the clutch hit the floor. I did'nt see any fluid leakage. Any ideas.


Sounds like you need to bleed the system again, or you have an air leak. try bleeding again and just check your fittings for tightness.

The hydraulic clutch stopped working.It won't shift.There is no pressure on the clutch whne you push it down.


The clutch hydraulic system is very small. Check the resevoir is full. If empty fill. Try clutch. Still problem ? Bleed the clutch slave cylinder at the trans bleeder. You dont bleed this clutch like brakes pumping up several times. Have someone push clutch to the floor and hold it there, then you open and close bleeder while keeping pedal to the floor. Check the fluid level every time you open/close the bleeder as this system is so small and will empty quick.

My clutch went out and i had a mechanic friend replace the part...its the part under the engine not the actual clutch but he cant get pressure back in the clutch and cant figure out if bleeding the system...


Bleeding the system is as follows. It also helps if you have a length of clear plastic tubing that fits snugly over the tip of the bleed nipple, which makes it easier to see if there are any air bubbles still coming out.

1. Start with the Master Cylinder full of fluid. (Don't forget to check after a few bleeds that it stays above ¼ full so that you don't introduce more air into the line).

2. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal 2 or 3 times, then hold down, keeping weight on the pedal as fluid is released.

3. Loosen bleed nipple to release any air & fluid.

4. Tighten nipple. Assistant then lets clutch pedal return. It may be necessary to manually pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.

5. Wait a few seconds then repeat the sequence from #2.
Bleeding is complete when no more air bubbles are visible in the fluid released from the bleed nipple. If clutch is still spongy you may have to repeat the bleeding after a few days driving.

New performance clutch, new slave cylinder and master slave wont go in gear, and when in gear and pressing clutch vehicle wants to go


You may not have got all of the air out of the clutch line Try bleeding it again. The sequence is as follows:
1. Start with the Master Cylinder full of fluid. (Don’t forget to check after a few bleeds that it stays above ¼ full so that you don’t introduce more air into the line).
2. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal 2 or 3 times, then hold down.
3. Loosen bleed nipple to release any air & fluid.
4. Tighten nipple. Assistant then lets clutch pedal return. It may be necessary to manually pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.
5. Wait a few seconds then repeat the sequence from #2.
Bleeding is complete when no more air bubbles are visible in the fluid released from the bleed nipple. It also helps if you have a length of clear plastic tubing that fits securely over the bleed nipple which makes it easier to see if there are any air bubbles.
