Question about 1986 Toyota Camry
I have the same problem with my 86 Toyota Camry could you explain to me how to bleed the clutch? It will start but the clutch is not disengaging. I have been told by 3 mechanics over the phone the the problem is the hydraulics for the clutch. The reservoir is empty and I am going to fill it today but I was also told to bleed the clutch, could you explain how? I need to get it running to get it to the mechanic
This would be simpler with 2 people. One would sit in the car and the other under it with his wrench on the bleed screw. Have the person inside pump on the clutch pedal several times and then hold it down. The other person then opens the bleed valve on the clutch, let the fluid come out while the person inside is continueing to hold the pedal down. Close off the bleed screw and repeat several times until all the air is gone from the system. If you dont have any leaks, you are good to go. Make sure you service the reservoir, and forget the mechanic.RC

Bleeding the system is as follows. It also helps if you have a length of clear plastic tubing that fits snugly over the tip of the bleed nipple, which makes it easier to see if there are any air bubbles still coming out.
1. Start with the Master Cylinder full of fluid. (Don't forget to check after a few bleeds that it stays above ¼ full so that you don't introduce more air into the line).
2. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal 2 or 3 times, then hold down, keeping weight on the pedal as fluid is released.
3. Loosen bleed nipple to release any air & fluid.
4. Tighten nipple. Assistant then lets clutch pedal return. It may be necessary to manually pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.
5. Wait a few seconds then repeat the sequence from #2.
Bleeding is complete when no more air bubbles are visible in the fluid released from the bleed nipple. If clutch is still spongy you may have to repeat the bleeding after a few days driving.
