Question about 2001 Dodge Neon
I recently replaced a clutch on my 2001 Plymouth Neon. I now have a problem getting into gears (any gear) when it's hot (worse if ambient air temp is warm). I put a second clutch in and checked the throwout bearing and it's operation. I was told that there may be air in the system and I tried bleeding the system the conventional way and found no air bubbles coming up. Is there another way to bleed the system? How would I replace only the slave cylinder and not the whole assembly? (not master cyl, lines and diaphram) Any help would be great.
There is a way to pressure bleed the system. depress and lock the clutch pedal down with the use of a pedal depresser or a stick, long extension something, with the pedal depressed crack the bleeder open and the pressure plate springs should force fluid out of the bleeder. note in some cases the pedal will stick in the depressed position. without the springs from the pressure plate. this is normal. just manually return the pedal to its start position, and repeat until air is purged.
