Improved Bleeding Procedure for Hydraulic Clutch Release System
Models:

This bulletin is being revised to add model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-07-31-002A (Section 07 - Transmission/Transaxle). This bulletin is being issued to inform dealers of an improved procedure to aid in the ease of bleeding the clutch hydraulic system for the above listed vehicles. This procedure can be used anytime air is introduced into the hydraulic system. Following this procedure may also reduce the number of unnecessary parts replaced for low clutch pedal reserve and high shift effort.
Verify that all the lines and fittings are dry and secure.
Clean the dirt and grease from the reservoir cap in order to ensure that no foreign substances enter the system.
Remove the reservoir cap.
Fill the reservoir to the proper level with the required fluid.
Attach the J 43485 (Adapter) to the J 35555 (Mity Vac), or equivalent.
Brake fluid will deteriorate the rubber on J 43485. Use a clean shop cloth to wipe away the fluid after each use.
Place and hold the adapter on the reservoir filler neck to ensure a tight fit. In some cases, the adapter will fit into the reservoir opening.
Apply a vacuum of 51-68 kPa (15-20 hg) and remove the adapter.
Refill the reservoir to the proper level.
Repeat Steps 6 and 7.
If needed, refill the reservoir and continue to pull a vacuum until no more bubbles can be seen in the reservoir or until the fluid level no longer drops.
The vehicle will move if started in gear before the Actuator Cylinder is refilled and operational. Start the vehicle the first time in neutral to help prevent personal injury from vehicle movement and see if the transmission will shift easily into gear.
Pump the clutch pedal until firm (to refill actuator cylinder).
Add additional fluid if needed.
Test drive vehicle to ensure proper operation.


NOTE: The principal parts of the clutch system are the driving members, the driven member, and the hydraulic system. The clutch housing is part of the manual transaxle assembly.

Driving Members
The driving members consist of two flat surfaces machined to a smooth finish. One of these is the rear face of the engine flywheel, and the other is the front face of the clutch cover assembly.

Driven Members
The driven member is the clutch disc. The clutch disc is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc slides on the splines to provide clutch disengagement and engagement.

The clutch disc is held in contact between the flywheel and the clutch cover assembly by the pressure of a diaphragm spring in the clutch cover assembly.

Hydraulic System
The clutch release system consists of a clutch master cylinder, remote reservoir, tubing and an clutch actuator cylinder assembly. The clutch master cylinder is mounted to the front of the dash and is controlled by a pushrod connected to the clutch pedal. The clutch actuator cylinder assembly is mounted inside the clutch housing. Tubing connects the clutch master cylinder to the clutch actuator cylinder assembly.

I replaced the clutch master cylinder on my 96 chevy cavalier and I am trying to bleed the system now from the bleeder screw at the transaxle but it wont bleed and i have no clutch, why


They will usually gravity bleed with little or no problem. Crack the line open at the master just enough to let fluid start out, then tighten. Open the cap on the reservoir in case a vacuum has built up and won't let the fluid flow to the slave cylinder. Open the bleeder and push clutch pedal down. Close bleeder and let the pedal up, and repeat until you have fluid come out the bleeder in a steady stream.

How do i bleed the clutch master cylinder with a pressure bleeder on a 2003 chevy cavalier?


On those models, the slave cylinder is IN the transmission bellhousing so you can't reach it directly, but usually there is a metal hose coming out of the casing with a bleeder screw on it. So you will just need to use that to bleed the clutch, either with a pump or with a helper pumping the clutch, just like you would bleed brakes.

Bleed the clutch in my 95 cavalier


The bleeder screw is located on the transmission slave cylinder housing. (Follow the hose from the clutch master cylinder) This is not a bolt, but a bleeder screw that has a fluid passage through the center to allow fluid to exit during bleeding.
An assistant needs to pump the clutch, then hold the pedal to the floor. Open bleed screw, tighten and repeat. Good luck

2004 cavalier clutch pedal stays on floor,clutch not slipping. do i change clutch master cyl


Check for fluid leaks first along the line. Also check the mechanical linkage. Then try bleeding it. Changing the master cylinder is your last resort. That way you dont buy parts you don't need.

1995 Chevy Cavalier Fluid leaking somewhere from hydro clutch line..need diagram that shows the system. There is a small container that is labeled Clutch that was empty.


There are only three parts to the system...the "container" that is the clutch master cylinder, a line between that and the clutch slave cylinder (which is the third part). It works same as your brakes ...step on the clutch and pressure from the master flows through the line to the slave. The slave moves the fork that pushes the clutch in to disengage it. Just like your brakes, any leak in any component will cause it not to work. Re-fill the master and have someone work the clutch and watch for leaks. Also inspect the area under the dash where the pedal rod goes through the firewall. if it's damp there the master is bad. After replacing whatever failed, you need to bleed the air from the system (should be a valve on the slave)
