Usually there is a bleeder screw on the master or the slave, and you bleed it just like you would brakes.
But you should not be loosing fluid if the system is sealed.

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris

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.

New clutch not disengaging


When I do clutch jobs. I replace the clutch package(comes with the slave) and the master cylinder also. Have the flywheel turned or replaced. Just a note. The clutch plate can be installed backwards. No matter how many times you bleed it, It won't work.

Replace clutch hydraulic


Replace them both, the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder. New clutch fluid, bleed the slave cylinder, and clutch should be back.

If you need to bleed the clutch, you should notice a soft clutch pedal getting firmer when you pump it (the air that you need to bleed out of the system compresses as you pump, and the pedal gets firmer, just like brakes).

A hydraulic system for a clutch (or your brakes) has a master cylinder component and a slave cylinder component. If you compress fluid in the master cylinder, it exerts force on a (more than one for your brakes) slave cylinder that causes a mechanical component to move.

Recommend you lean into the engine compartment on the drive side at the firewall or crawl under the car and have someone depress and release your clutch a few times. You should be able to find the master cylinder because the mechanical clutch linkage has to be attached to it. The same at the bellhousing, where the slave cylinder has to mechanically cause the throwout bearing to be moved. It is possible (but not probable) that your clutch master cylinder is located on the inside of the firewall, not the outside.

Lost resistance on clutch pedal and hard to change gears also when topping up clutch fluid it does`nt last that much and leaks from slave cyclinder


If the slave cylinder is leaking, replace the slave cylinder. You are loosing hydraulic pressure in the clutch and is the reason why it is not engaging correctly.

I have a 1985 Chevy S-10. I have not started or drove this vehicle for a few months. I go to start it today and the clutch goes all the way to the floor with no resistance. Please help?


Your S10 has a clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder, a hydraulic clutch system.

You need to fill the master cylinder and bleed both the master and slave cylinders in order for the clutch mechanism to work properly.

2001 Ford ranger edge. The gears won't change.


The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.
