Question about 2005 Mazda MPV
Just changed the clutch in a 2004 mazda mpv and for life of me cannot seem to get it to bleed and give a clutch pedal the pedal just hits the floor with no resistance
tried gravity bleeding open bleed nipple and let fluid drip no joy
tried low pressure vacum bleed drags fluid through nicely but system still air locks
cant use an easy bleed as the kit doesnt fit on the mazda master cylinder resivour
so any suggestions on how i should bleed this are welcome

crack the bleeder nipple on the slave cyl and get some one to slowly push the pedal see if any fluid shoots out if not you may have killed the new seal in the master cyl.
it sounds like you did every thing right its just that old cylinders get were in them and if you don't hone them out and put a new sleeve in them quite often you will rip the new seal apart on the first pump of the pedal.
any way check for presser and let me no

SOURCE: Clutch pedal stays on floor
the problem is that either the master or slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch have failed, it is always recommended that they both replaced together, u can bleed the clutch but the problem will occur again.

you have to remove the pipes that go out of the master cylinder and purge the air later you connect the pipes and it purges the air in every auxiliary cylinder and the pedal will begin to have pressure

Either your master cylinder is going ( I had the same problem on my F350 truck) or there is still a small amount of air in the system. As long as the air bubble are dispersed like when the pedal is pumped, it will most likely work. The solution is to properly bleed the system. The easiest is to borrow a vacum pump and **** a few oz of fluid through the bleed screw. The second best requires two people. Have someone sit in the drivers seat and as you open the screw have them press the pedal to the floor holding it there till you retighten the screw. Do this 10 or twelve times making sure you always have fluid in the resevoir. This will push all air out of the system.
