You have to bleed the clutch,its kind of like brakes,you need to have someone in the truck and pump the clutch about 4 times and hold it to the floor,there is a bleeder screw in the transmission,after pumping and holding,undo the bleeder screw and let the pressure release,close the screw and repeat the process untill you have a clutch,but remember to keep the resevoir full of fluid

Hydraulic clutch is not disengaging, when put into 1st gear the engine conks out. Replaced the master cylinder and bled the line - still conks out. Do I need too replace the slave cylinder or what?

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.

Working on 1988 chevy Scottsdale the clutch line got a leak so I changed it and tried to bleed and nothkng. I checked to see if master cylinder was pumping and had to replace also. Dealer said he replaced...


If you can get a hand operated vacuum pump and seal it in place of the cap on the master cylinder apply vacuum and you will see the air bubbles being removed from the slave cylinder. It has always worked for me.

I changed the slave cylinder and now my clutch will not disengage. I have even bleed the slave and its still stuck. What now?


when you replaced the pressure plate did you notice that one side was inscribed "fly wheel side" Also did you replace the throw out bearing the fork that works it from the slave cylinder may have come loose or not in correctly. Have a friend watch the slave cylinder for movement as you pump the clutch several times. Good luck

1988 chevy k2500 clutch pedal has no resistance


Your truck has a hydraulic clutch release system, you have a problem in it due to a leak in the slave or the master cylinder, The slave cylinder which is the one that leaks most often is inside the bell housing and it requires the ****** be removed to replace it.

I have a 95 chevy 1/2 ton thay I replaced the clutch in. I know its a heavy duty transmission, so I am wondering if the clutch could be different. Clutch works fine in the cold, but when you work it hard,...


You know about the contraction and exspansion law. It's probably the slave cylinder. It does get fairly hot when you work your transmission hard. This would cause blow by past the orings in the slave. you can only get what the manufacturer made for the vehicle. What happened to the old linkage systems that you could adjust?

Clutch not disengaging


Replace the slave Cylinder as the boot just stops the dirt the seal inside does all the work. Make sure you bleed the cylinder when you are done.
