Here is your issue, I have an '03 with the same tranny, the problem is most likely the slave cylinder which requires a pull of the transmission the part is 50 bucks and I did this in about 10 hours on my back, by myself and just a little swearing. I replaced the whole thing the pressure plate, clutch disk and slave cylinder as I was not going to do this again.
The other side of the issue is the master cylinder in which I find if the Slave is bad the master is also bad, hence the pedal dropping to the floor.
The bleed is simple it is a gravity bleed. Loosen the bleeder and let it run. then after you verify there si no air you can pump up the master and it should work fine.
this is a poorly designed system as the slave cylinder on the mitsubishi tranny is inside the bell housing.. good Luck

How do you bleed hydrolic clutch on a 97 Ford Pickup. I have tried pumping the pedal and it stays on the floor. I have replaced the Master Cyclinder and the Clutch cyclinder, plate everything is new


First of all, fill your brake fluid reservoir to the top. Not the clutch master (I will explain later) Now lift the vehicle in the air or crawl underneath it. This will take 2 people to bleed this properly. Measure the distance between the clutch slave and the nearest brake caliper. Cut a piece of hose this length to go between the caliper and the slave. Put the piece of hose on caliper and the slave, have the second person get inside the truck and pump the brakes. At the exact same time open both bleeders and when the pedal hits the floor close both bleeders (on the caliper and on the slave cylinder) do this until fluid starts escaping out of the clutch master reservoir. What you are doing is back bleeding the clutch from the lowest point to the highest point which is the direction air travels. Repeat the process until you get a pedal out of the clutch. This trick works every time for me, whether it is a bmw, ford or ferrari.
Good luck

HOW TO BLEED A CLUTCH ON A RENAULD MEGAN SPORT 2007


Locate the clutch slave cylinder. It will be on the joint of the gearbox and the engine. On it wull be a bleeder nipple with a rubber dust cover on it. Remove the cover, slip a ring spanner of the correct size over the nipple and fit the bleeder hose. Fill the clutch reservoir and have an assistant depress the clutch pedal fully. Open the bleeder nipple slowly and watch for fluid and bubbles to come out. Close the bleeder nipple and let the assistant release the clutch pedal, depress the pedal again and open the nipple. Do this about four times or until no more bubbles are observed coming out of the pipe. Secure the bleeder nipple, remove the pipe and spanner and replace the dust cover. Fill the reservoir and test the clutch. If it does not work properly more work on the system is required.

Spongy clutch how to bleed clutch 2001 alero


The bleeder nipple is on the clutch slave cylinder on the bell housing. Fill the reservoir and have someone depress the clutch pedal, fit a bleeder pipe on the nipple and open the bleeder until the fluid stops flowing. Repeat this process until no more bubbles are seen in the bleeder tube. Be careful to not let the reservoir run empty or you will have to repeat the process.

I just replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing and both the master and slave cylinders. I am not getting any significant travel in the slave when I push the pedal in. How much travel should...


you may just open the bleeder, and let it gravity bleed. make sure on the master cylinder that the piston is coming all the way back when the pedal is all the way back/up. there's an adjustment for that, on the rod connecting the clutch pedal to the master cylinder.

I cant bleed the clutch on my renault laguna 2 52 plate it has a plastic bleeding system I have tried everything but with no success Les


You need to connect the pressure bleeder to the brake master cylinder resrvoir,then bleed the clutch through from the nipple on the slave cylinder.If the nipple is not of the unscrewable type,you need to release the pipe from it's clip where the nipple is and then this will allow the air to escape and you end up with fluid with no air bubbles in it coming out of the nipple.If the nipple is of the more normal type,you need to follow the same procedure,you just undo the nipple half a turn and this will have the same effect.

It's best to connect a piece of small pipe with a container to collect the fluid in on to the nipple as you could contaminate the clutch plate with the waste fluid,and if your using a pressure bleeder it will save you getting squirted with brake fluid when you release the nipple!.

If you have someone else that can help you,don't use the pressure bleeder and just get the person to sit in the car and work the clutch pedal up and down whilst you open and close the bleed nipple.You follow the procedure,clutch pushed down,release nipple,close nipple,clutch pedal up,clutch pedal down,release nipple,close nipple,clutch pedal up and so on a so forth until no more air comes out and you have a steady stream of fluid.

Need to know where slave cylinder nipple is


I just installed a new clutch master cylinder and was not able to bleed the system however; I continued to pump the clutch many, many, many times. Simply moving fluid and eventually I bagan to get a little pedal back. I then figured that if I parked the car on a downward slope the resivoir would be the tallest component and residual air may rise up ward. This is only a theory and I haven't proven its effectiveness yet. So far, only a little pedal.
