Question about 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier
At first i couldn't put it into gear. Then i bled my clutch and now it only barely allows me to put it into gear. when i go to let the pedal out it starts to engage as soon as it moves from the floor. Is there any way to adjust when the cluch engages or is something causing this?
Your master clutch cylinder is probably leaking (internally; fluid bypassing the seals) or you may not have done a thorough job of getting the air out of the hydraulics. I have had to do it again a couple of times and now, after renewing the fluid, bleeding all lines of old fluid, I recirculate the fluid through a clear plastic tube draped over the driver's side windshield wiper and a bottle so I actually see the air bubbles fade after pumping long enough.
If the slave cylinder is leaking, you should have some stains around the area where it is mounted on the bell housing. Many cars do have an adjustment at the slave cylinder that sets the starting point of its travel but I have found that these only very rarely need adjustment and don't change until the master or slave cylinder start to bleed fluid past their seals or the throwout bearing becomes really sloppy.
