Question about 1997 Kia Sportage

I have a 1997 Kia Sportage and I need to know what kind of problem will it cause if you don't bleed your slave cylinder.

I just replaced my master Cylinder because it was leaking and now I can't shift my truck at all.

You will have a low clutch pedal or no pedal at all.

    That is what I thought and I should be able to bleed the slave, then my brakes right?

    You do realize that the clutch master cylinder and the brake master cylinder are two separate parts correct? It has nothing to do with the brakes, the brake system has a much larger master cylinder of its own. So if you replaced the master cylinder for the brakes thinking that also operated the clutch you replaced the wrong part.

Mazda e2200 clutch repair: feels like I still have some kind of pedal springback, but without much force. No clutch at all. I assume it is hydraulic, but the only reservoir I see is for the brakes. That is...


Yes, hydraulic--check again--fender side of brake master. Slave is usual cause of leak that eventually causes master reservoir to go dry and start drawing air. Check slave for leak. If leaking, replace slave and bleed system. Make sure to bench-bleed slave before installation by opening bleeder and pouring fluid into line port.

  1. Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
  2. Back off the flare nut on the fluid pipe to free the slave cylinder hose.
  3. Pull off the hose-to-bracket retaining clip and pull the hose from the bracket. Cap the pipe to prevent fluid loss.
  4. Unbolt and remove the slave cylinder.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal. Tighten the bolt to 12-17 ft. lbs. (16-23 Nm).

Problems shifting, clutch feels fine.


Most likely the master cylinder. Both usually need replaced together. If one fails the other will most likely soon after. Then bleed system again.

If you don't have any brake lines leaking, change the master cylinder, bench bleed the new one then bleed the blakes, starting with the right rear, left rear, right front, then left front. If the booster was gone, you would hear air leaking out of it when you pressed the pedal down.
