I replaced the clutch master cylinder on my 93 Dodge Stealth ES, bled the line a couple times . The clutch grabs about 2" from the floor but the pedal doesn't return to the normal position. Does that mean I need to bleed it some more?
You need to "pump" you clutch, this will take several times. When you push it to the floor release it and push it again. It will return to a normal position. You might even have to pull the pedal up to push it down, but keep pushing it until it's tight again then check the reservoir to make sure it's full (the air bubbles will come to the top inside the reservoir.)

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.
No ---it simply needs the air being bled out of the clutch system. IF the slave cylinder had no fluid leakage past the piston then have an assistant help you bleed the slave cylinder. If there is a problem then I would consider replacing the clutch master cylinder .Keep an eye on the clutch master cylinder reservoir . The play you gave in the clutch fork is not there when the system is bled properly and there is no spring as the system keeps the piston of the slave cylinder in contact with the forks.
i had same problem i replaced the slave cylinder and removed the hydraulic clutch dampiner right next to slave cylinder now no grinding plus quicker shifts operates like a performance clutch with out the cost. slave cylinder cost $25 there is a do it yourself video on you tube. must remove dampiner and rejoin hydraulic line with a connecter for the added performance.
The bleeder is located on the slave cylinder at the bell housing of the transmission. Follow the clutch pressure line down to the bell housing, and you will find the bleeder. To bleed the system properly, you will need to have someone push the clutch in, and hold it until you open the bleeder, and close it again. Repeat steps until you have a good solid clutch pedal. Make sure to not let the fluid level in the reservoir get too low as it can **** in air, and you have to start all over.
you have to replace the master and slave. if there is no bleeder, you might get lucky bench bleeding it, but the whole assy, comes from dealer pre-bled. The system is sealed and even to do a clutch or trans, you shouldnt have to take it apart. DO NOT PUSH CLUTCH WITHOUT ALL PARTS HOOKED UP! youll break it.
