No you don't, the plunger in the slave valve forces the fluid out.

I have a 1998 1.8L Kia Mentor and my clutch pedal won't sink to the floor but I can't get any gears.


There are 3 progressively difficult and expensive steps you can take. I have to assume that the Mentor is the same as a Sephia.
First: Check the level of fluid in your brake/clutch canister. It MIGHT have 2 separate canisters (like the 1995 Sephia.) But I doubt it.
Second: Check your hydraulic clutch cable and the unit at the transaxle. It may need to be bled.
Third (and most expensive): Replace your clutch and pressure plate. This is the most expensive as it requires removal of the engine.

I hope this helps you find the source of your difficulties.

My 97 kia sephia clutch has no pressure at all.it was fine the night befor and when i started it the cluch had no pressure.any ideas


Most likely your hydraulic hose has sprung a leak. Otherwise your problem would be with the clutch master cylinder cup or the clutch release cylinder cup. Check your clutch fluid level, if it is low there may be air in the system and it will need to be bleeded.

Replaced the clutch master cylinder in 2001 kia sephia but still not working. The fluid wont go to the cylinder even after bleeding what did I miss?


Hi Monique, As you have replaced the master cylinder, what is the condition of the slave cylinder? I wonder how you are bleeding the system. The procedure is as follows. Fill the reservoir and have a friend keep it full as the bleeding procedure is carried out. Pump the clutch pedal all the way to the floor and then release it to the upper end of its travel. do this until you feel pressure in the pedal and with the pedal pressed all the way to the floor have a friend open and then after two seconds close the bleeding nipple while you hold the pedal down. Once the nipple is closed repeat the action and the bleeding procedure. The nipple must only be opened and then closed while you hold the pedal to the floor. Repeat the procedure until the clutch action returns to normal. Regards John

I have changed my clutch on my kia sephia but he didn't have resistence at the pedal. I have bleed the systeme but always nothing and it have no escape.....


is there not a clutch cable on that model the adjustment is not right and if you have a slave cyl chances are the clutch was ok but the slave was no good so check for cable if none make sure that slave was bleed proper then you know slave no good to replace ps if positive and i mean positive the clutch installed was good, properly installed and the release bearning installed as well

I have a 99 Kia Sephia and it will not move in any gear the clutch seems to be engaging and disengaging but the transmission will not spin the wheels in any gear


It sounds like a bad clutch. It is the clutch if you can change gears with the clutch out and the engine running.

2000 kia sephia clutch


this is a big job for someone who is not mechanically inclined but....here it goes go buy a new clutch new tranny fluid and a haynes manual at the auto parts store your going to have to drain and drop your tranny ... BUY THE CLUTCH WITH THE TOOL theres an alignment tool needed to align the plates n bearings start by pulling off both tires, brakes and both cv axels be sure to remove the intermediate shaft from the tranny on the passenger side (should come out with the axel passenger side only) so do yourself a favor and buy an impact gun with at least 500 ft lbs torque youll need it also have handy your 14mm 17mm and 19mm impact sockets and remember this job usually runs around 1,200 bucks at firestone also DO NOT remove the bolt in the middle of the front springs under the hood just the four around it and the will pop out no prob and wont need to be clamped remove the starter behind your engine its under the oil filter also if your new to this sorta thing its gonna take you about 3 days to do it buy the impact gun if ur in a hurry look at a pawn shop have your flywheel machined its going to be accessible and it needs it hope this helps dont forget the book which you should already have bought anyway its good for your torque specs which you will also need a torque wrench for the clutch also dont crack open ur tranny this isnt a honda
