Although a lot of people use the pressure bleed system there is an easier way. Take the cover off the master cylinder, put a rag over it, so the fluid doesn't get dirty. Starting with the caliper furthest from the master, open the bleed valve and then tighten it back up finger-tight. Next get a length @ 2-3 feet of clear plastic tubing. You connect the clear plastic tube to the bleeder (1/4 or 1/8 In.) which ever fits most snug (no air leaks). Make a loop of tubing downstream from the bleeder and put the end of the tube into a clear bottle. Open the bleeder. fluid will flow and you should be able to see thew air coming out with it. As soon as the air bubbles stop, give it another 10 seconds to make sure and retighten the bleeder. Repeat with next caliper. Check master cylinder fluid after each caliper. Always work with the caliper farthest from the master cylinder, working to the caliper closest to the masterr. It's possible to do all 4 wheels at the same time, but you've got to stay on top of the fluide in the master cylinder. Don't let it get low or you'll have to start all over again.

Clutch needs bled


check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. Get assistance and bleed the air out of the clutch system. IF there is a leakage at the slave cylinder and the vehicle is over 5 years old replace both the slave and the master cylinders.

Will not go into gear


You may have to bleed the slave cylinder to get it to work. Bleed it just like brakes-pedal going to floor, open valve. Close valve, pump pedal and pedal to floor again with bleed valve open. When fluid comes out in steady stream with pedal pressed, done. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder when clutch is pressed-it should move out to move the clutch lever.

2000 jeep wrangler clutch has to pressure and thus wont allow me to put it in gear.


Check the clutch fluid level. If it's low, add some (takes brake fluid). There is a bleed valve down on the clutch slave cylinder on the bellhousing. Open the bleed valve and have someone push the clutch pedal slowly to floor, and hold. Close the bleed valve, and repeat until fluid comes out in a steady stream when the pedal is depressed. Your pedal should have pressure now, and the clutch should be working.
If no fluid is forced out the clutch master cylinder, into the line, and to the slave cylinder when clutch is pressed, then you may have a bad clutch master cylinder. If fluid does come out the bleed valve, but still no pressure on the pedal, it may be a bad slave cylinder.
Post back for more. Would like to know what you find out, and what the problem was, OB. Good luck.

My clutch doesn't always disengage when the peddle is on the floor and when starting out in first bolts ahead as though the clutch was already part way out. I took it to a shop and they said my clutch...


your clutch master cylinder is right beside your brake master cylinder. I would advise you to replace the master cylinder and the slave cylinder together. The slave cylinder is on the side of the transmission. The slave cylinder does have a bleeder screw on it after the parts are bolted in place fill with dot 3 brake fluid and open the bleeder on the slave cylinder until fluid starts dripping out. Then tighten bleeder then open bleeder and have someone push down on clutch pedal while the pedal is pushed down tighten the bleeder the release pedal. Repeat this procedure until you get no air and the pedal feels normal and you should be good to go. Good luck!

Changed clutch but unable to bleed the slave cylinder. Does that mean clutch master cylinder is bad? Got one from parts store but can't figure out how to take the clutch safty switch off to change it. Any...


Probably not. Bleeding clutch slave cylinders is tricky because you cant "pump it up". The master cylinder has no static valve so the best way to bleed the slave cyl. is to use gravity. Fill the master cylinder reservoir and open the bleed valve on the slave cyl. Allow fluid to drip into an open can until there's no trace of air. Close bleed valve and try clutch. If still no pedal, repeat the process. This is quite an acceptable procedure.

Where is the bleed valve for clutch on a 1991 jeep wrangler


1. Fill master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support vehicle. Attach bleeder hose to bleeder screw on bleed line of slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 (attached in link) . Place other end of hose in glass container 1/2 full of brake fluid. Loosen bleeder screw while holding bleeder screw fitting.

2. Have an assistant depress clutch pedal to the floor. Tighten bleeder screw and release clutch pedal. Repeat bleeding procedure until fluid entering container is free of bubbles. DO NOT allow reservoir to run out of fluid during bleeding. Refill clutch master cylinder reservoir.

CAUTION: DO NOT allow bleed line to bend or flex when loosening
bleeder screw.

Bleeeding the clutch


This is what I would do.
Fill the master with brake fluid.
Make sure the slave cylinder bleeder is closed.
Have someone pump the clutch pedal fully down and while allowing it to come fully up about 20 times and then hold down.
Now with the clutch held down ........open the bleeder and hopefully some air will come out.
Repeat until fluid appears with out air.
The clutch master cylinder piston must be allowed to come fully back in it's cylinder to take in a new load of brake fluid with every pump and in normal operation.
Another way to bleed it......is to vacuum the fluid through the system from the master cylinder .......connecting to the slave cylinder bleeder valve.
