Question about 1995 Honda Passport

Bleeding the clutch line

I just had a new slave Cylinder installed and last night when they bleeded the lines it was driving just fine, this morning when I started the passport up it was ok, a little mushy.. when I went into the passport to leave the clutch peddle went to the floor. Does this mean that the clutch needs more bleeding?

It sounds like you have air in the system. Either they did not bleed it correctly or you have a leak in the system.
If you paid someone to fix your car, have it towed back to the garage and bled correctly or leak fixed. If a friend installed your parts, find a new friend. Just kidding.

Clutch, slave , master cylinder and tranny new. bleeding system with no effect. no resistence at all.

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder? If you didn't, crack the line to the slave open at the master, work the clutch pedal until fluid comes out the line you cracked open. Now close and tighten the line, and it should bleed normally down at the slave cylinder.

Hello i have a 1993 chevy cheyyenne k1500 pickup with a v6 4.3 its a manual and my clutch line broke off of my slabe cylinder due to a crack in it from ware and tear which leaked fluid all out and lost...

I changed the slave cylinder on my 97 Accord and all I did was disconnect the lines, disconnect the linkage from the pedal, move some stuff to get it out, hook up the new one, fill with fluid, and bleed the line to the clutch cylinder. Point is, if you have to remove the slave cylinder, that's fine. You'll have to bleed the system anyway. Like bleeding brakes. I didn't have to drain any "tranny fluid" as the clutch fluid was a separate system. Had a drain pan underneath to catch fluid.

Can not bleed clutch on 1987 GMC 2500

There is still air in the system. Try bleeding the m/cyl first by removing the line to the slave cyl and while holding you finger over the opening have someone gently operate the pedal. When you get good fluid past your finger reconnect the line then bleed the slave cyl. as normal.

Wont go into gear

Did any fluid come out? It has to have fluid reach the slave cylinder, and when bleed valve is open and clutch is pressed, fluid should squirt out. Open the valve and pump the clutch until fluid is forced down into the slave cylinder. Keep topping up the clutch master cylinder so it won't run dry.
Post back if still having problems. There is a tool at auto parts stores for pressure bleeding brake lines and clutch lines. It forces fluid into the lines by pressure. If nothing works, your clutch master cylinder may have failed. Take the line off at the slave cylinder and see if the master cylinder is working to push fluid through the line.

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.

I need to replace my Master Clutch Cylinder. What Steps do I take? I am most concerned with Bleeding the Lines After the New part is installed.....

You need to bench bleed the master cylinder. You can gently clamp it in a vise and fill the reservoir with fluid and get a section of brake line to attach to the outlet port and then curl back around and be submerged in the reservoir fluid. Then simply pump the cylinder until the bubbles stop.
Many times if you are careful and the fluid in the line is still standing up to the top, you can put it together and see how it feels. The key is bench bleeding the master cylinder. Some come with bleeding hoses in the box.
Worst case, after installation, you can simply bleed the slave cylinder taking care not to run the reservoir low and **** air again.

Not sure if your car has a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder, but if it doesn't, attempt method 1 first.

When you bleed the system make sure to bleed in 2 points.
One is the slave cylinder, the other one is in the joint of the line (hydraulic line) when it passes from the chassis to the engine (right above the transmission). loosen the bolt just a little and press the clutch again (several times).
then you will be done bleeding the system correctly and your clutch will work again!

Clutch not responding

well if you have mixed a wrong type of fluid (such as power steering or oils) you are going to have to replace the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. Before you install the new parts be sure to drain all the old fluid out of the clutch line, and flush the clutch line with brake cleaner and blow compressed air thru until its clean and dry. install your new parts and fill with fresh (NEW) fluid whatever the manufacturer recommends most any DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluids will work (read the cap on the resivoir) and proceed with bleeding the air from the system, i usually fill up the resivoir with the bleed screw open(on the slave) until fluid with no air comes out and then proceed with the bleeding process this is called gravity bleeding and will help speed things along be sure to rate this and good luck this is not very hard to do and should take about an hour HERE IS THE MASTER
AND HERE IS THE SLAVE about $80 in parts altogether including fluid please rate _JEFF
