Changed clutch master cyl. and clutch still goes to floor

Tried to bleed the lines and nothing really coming out. Can't get the line pumped up enough to work the slave. There is no fluid leaking anywhere and the reservoir is full.

Your brake flexible hoses could be to blame. This is a common fault on the Escort. Have a friend press down on the brake peddle and feel the front flexible brake hoses. They should expand slightly, if this is the case then they must be replaced.

Try to gravity bleed the system..............leave the master cap off and open the bleeder screw....sometimes this can take a while.epically if you don't bench bleed the new master.(some clutch masters Ive seen (ford especially) take a lot of pumping literally hundreds of pumps)
hope this helps.Good luck!

2001 dodge Dakota brakes seem to have air changed master cylinder still got air can't get it out bleed brakes


when bleeding brakes start at the master cyl lines. crak the nuts at the lines and pump the pedal until you have oil coming out . This primes the master cyl.. Next start at the longest line and bleed back to the shortest. Two man operation . Pump and hold down and then open the bleed screw . tighten the bleed screw and allow the pedal to come back up re-pump the pedal and hold down until all the air is out of that line. Repeat the process fpr all the lines ensuring that you monitor the oil level in the reservoir so that you do not have to start again.

Why does clutch leak off and wont go into gear 96 toyota tacoma when you push on clutch pedal goes to the floor it wont engage clutch to be able to put into gear


the most likely reason is either the clutch master cyl. needs to be replaced.or the.slave cyl. its mounted down on the transmation under the hood find the resivore for the clutch. check the fluid level.if its low , fill it back up , and look for signs of a leak
you will probally have to bleed out all of the air from the system.its done almost the same way as bleeding the brakes. Good Luck.

Ran out of clutch fluid now there is air in line...clutch is all the way to floor...how do i get air out of line...have tried everything


It's a matter of bleeding the clutch system completely. You do need to make sure you don't ,have any leaks at the Clutch Master Cyl. or at the Clutch Slave Cyl or the line running between both, and that you don't have clutch fluid in the drivers compartment just below where the clutch rod comes through the firewall. That would of course mean you have to replace the Clutch Master Cylinder due to internal leakage.

This isn't so unusual, you'll have to pull up on the pedal by hand & pump it a few times to get pressure enough to properly bleed the system, or, you will have to start with bleeding the Clutch Master Cyl. first by loosening the line there & have someone push down the pedal, then before letting up on the pedal, tighten the line to prevent air from being drawn in. Repeat two times to get any air out here.

If your parts and lines are all in good shape then re-fill the resivoir & have someone to pull up on the clutch by hand if needed & then if necessary, use their hand to depress & pull the pedal a few times to try & build some pressure so that you can bleed the Clutch slave cylinder a few times to get all of the air out. After you've finished bleeding the system, the pedal should stay in the up position except when being depressed and you should have consistently even pressure when using the clutch.

good luck.

Excessive brake pedal travel brake pedal goes almost to the floor before stopping, tried bleeding brakes at the callipers with no difference.


Check the rear brakes are not leaking, or have air in the fluid feed line.
If above OK, it's probably caused by a faulty master cylinder.
(To check :- Slacken off the master cyl feed to the front (then rear) brakes, and observe if any fluid is being delivered - if not it is definitely a master cyl problem).

I replaced the mas cyl 2004 ford explorer. Gas padal won't work


You need to bleed the air from the system. First if you replaced the master cylinder you need to bleep both ports that the line hook too. Then hook the lines up and bleed all four corners of the vehicles brakes starting with the right rear since it is the furthest point away from the master cylinder. As you bleed the system remember to refill the master so you don't' ingest more air into the system again.

Bleeding clutch slave cylinder


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.

1996 Ford Ranger XLT Clutch Bleeding


The problem is up at the Master Cyl............It comes ou of the firewall and points DOWN at about a 45 deg angle.....The reservoir is remote and the hose is set to the lowest point of the cyl...........The tube TO the slave is 180 deg around facing bottom...........
Take the master cly OFF the firewall.......tilt it so that both inlet and outlet are the HIGHEST point of the cyl........Gravity bleed or vacula the slave.........then reinstall the master
I know it sounds like a lot of work but it's the easiest way to clear the air out of Ranger/Explorer hydraulics
