Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

I have a 2001 honda accord dx. My clutch slave cylinder was leaking so I replaced it. Now it seems as if i cannot bleed the cylinder. I constantly pump the clutch and bleed the cylinder but I cant get any pressure on the clutch. Is there a special way to bleed this cylinder. I am really frustrated The clutch slave was leaking fluid so I replaced the internal parts (rubber parts, spring, etc). After put back everything, began pumping the pedal to bleed the system but just couldn't get any pressure on it. The pedal just keeps going all the way to the floor with no resistance whatsoever. No pressurized air or fluid coming out of the bleeder screw either, just a little fluid dribbling out. The master seemed fine before the slave repair. Could the master be in need of replacement too? What could be wrong?

I think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

SOURCE: we are not getting pedal on the clutch after bleeding the slave

Here is your issue, I have an '03 with the same tranny, the problem is most likely the slave cylinder which requires a pull of the transmission the part is 50 bucks and I did this in about 10 hours on my back, by myself and just a little swearing. I replaced the whole thing the pressure plate, clutch disk and slave cylinder as I was not going to do this again.
The other side of the issue is the master cylinder in which I find if the Slave is bad the master is also bad, hence the pedal dropping to the floor.
The bleed is simple it is a gravity bleed. Loosen the bleeder and let it run. then after you verify there si no air you can pump up the master and it should work fine.
this is a poorly designed system as the slave cylinder on the mitsubishi tranny is inside the bell housing.. good Luck

SOURCE: Bleeding Clutch Cylinder with no bleeder screw

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1988-dodge-dakota--bleding-air-out-of-clutch-master-cylinder-vt248517.html

Did you bleed the clutch hydraulic system after you replaced the parts? It requires bleeding just like the brake system does.

Lost resistance on clutch pedal and hard to change gears also when topping up clutch fluid it does`nt last that much and leaks from slave cyclinder


If the slave cylinder is leaking, replace the slave cylinder. You are loosing hydraulic pressure in the clutch and is the reason why it is not engaging correctly.

2001 mercury cougar, master cylinder ran dry because slave cylinder below is leaking at the firewall. I filled the master cylinder and tried bleeding the clutch at the transmission until fluid stream...


No, you don't need to replace the clutch itself.
Don't be surprised if the slave cylinder replacement doesn't fix it.
Could be the master cylinder.

You need to PRE BLEED the master cylinder, or you may never get pressure. Parts houses sell little hoses for this purpose.

How to replace clutch slave on 1996 honda accord


first brake loose the line that feeds the slave cylinder. you will need a line wrench for this. then remove the 2 twelve millimeter bolts that hold the slave to the trans. remove the hydraulic line from the slave. reinstall in the reverse order(before installing slave break loose the 8 mm bleeder screw) then bleed the clutch by yourself or with an assistant. bleeding processes vary

My 1990 Honda Accord is not taking gear


Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder reservoir - it is probably low. You will probably have to bleed the system (similar to bleeding brakes), the bleeder screw is on the slave cylinder on the front side of the transmission. If the level is low, you should also check for leaks in the system while you're at it. Leaks from the master cylinder show up on the inside of the firewall and floor below where the push rod comes through the firewall. Leaks from the slave cylinder should be fairly obvious on the flexible boot.

Bleeding clutch slave cylinder


if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris
