Question about 1997 Dodge Dakota
The clips that hold the release bearing to the fork broke. Pulled transmission and replaced release bearing with clips and pressure plate. Put back together, but still no clutch. Then replaced slave cylinder and master cylinder. Then bled for 30 minutes until steady stream of fluid but still no change! So why do i still have no clutch? Suggestions please!!
I hate to say this some clutch plates you can not tell the difference from the flywheel side so it will go on backwards ,sounds crazy,but I have seen people put them on backwards all the time and that is what it sounds like considering you have done enough for it to work,FLYWHEEL SIDE XXXXXX

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.

Hydraulic clutch systems are renown for having airlocks in them once the fluid has drained out.
1.With the Master cylinder full have an assistant pump the clutch pedal acouple of times and keep it on the floor.
2. Release the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder to allow the air out and then tighten.
3. Assistant then allows pedal to come up.They may need to pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.
4.Repeat from #1 until no nore bubbles are seen coming out of the slave cylinder bleed nipple.
If you have a length of suitable size plastic tube that fits neatly over the the slave cylinder bleed nipple , the bubbles will be seen more clearly.
It could thae 8 to 10 pump sequences to clear the air lock. If the clutch still feels spongy, repeat the sequence after a couple of days driving.
