Question about 1996 Honda Accord
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.

You have to get a vacuum pump that will bleed it

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

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
