Sometimes you have to bleed them with a vacuum pump.Cheap way is a turkey injector at bi-lo)or replace master cylinder.I have bled a lot of unwilling ones with the injector especilly ford rangers.

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

SOURCE: bleeding the slave cylinder

Hi

Best to get the help of a friend to pump the clutch pedal for you.

Take care with the brake fluid, as it removes paintwork !

Top up your clutch fluid reservoir, connect a bleeding tube to the nipple on your slave cylinder, and put the other end of tube in a container.

Get your friend to pump pedal 3 times, and then hold to the floor.

Open the nipple for 5 seconds or so, then close.

Repeat this about 6 to 8 times topping up the fluid as you go.

You should then find, that the air is out of your system, and your pedal is back to normal !

Good luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice.... Thank you ! John.

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1988-dodge-dakota--bleding-air-out-of-clutch-master-cylinder-vt248517.html

How to bleed clutch


Check the fluid-reservoir for your clutch. If there is low/no fluid, top it up. Pump the pedal a few times first .. and check underneath the car for a fluid leak.

If the fluid reservoir is full, don't bother checking under the car for leaks.

Usually, the clutch master cylinder has a 'nipple' - a bleed point. Get someone to pump the clutch pedal for you a few times and keep it pressed down. Place a rag on the nipple and slightly undo the nut. Any air in the system should be forced out. You may have to open/close the nipple (nut) 2 or 3 times whilst somebody pumps and holds down the clutch pedal.

If there is no nipple/nut on the clutch master cylinder, follow the metal tube back up into the engine compartment and bleed the air out of it by putting a cloth around the topmost point where it connects to something else, and slightly undo the connection. The clutch pedal should be pressed down whilst you do this ..

If there's no air forced out of the hydraulic line or the clutch still does not build pressure, it may well be that the rubber ring inside clutch master cylinder is perished. You either have to fit a new rubber ring or replace the clutch master cylinder.

Replacing the clutch master cylinder is the best option. The bore of the master cylinder can wear - become 'ovalled' over time. Fitting a new rubber ring into a master cylinder that has a worn bore is only a short-term cure.

A perished rubber ring or worn clutch cylinder bore simply allows hydraulic fluid to be 'moved' without becoming pressurised

If you need to bleed the clutch, you should notice a soft clutch pedal getting firmer when you pump it (the air that you need to bleed out of the system compresses as you pump, and the pedal gets firmer, just like brakes).

A hydraulic system for a clutch (or your brakes) has a master cylinder component and a slave cylinder component. If you compress fluid in the master cylinder, it exerts force on a (more than one for your brakes) slave cylinder that causes a mechanical component to move.

Recommend you lean into the engine compartment on the drive side at the firewall or crawl under the car and have someone depress and release your clutch a few times. You should be able to find the master cylinder because the mechanical clutch linkage has to be attached to it. The same at the bellhousing, where the slave cylinder has to mechanically cause the throwout bearing to be moved. It is possible (but not probable) that your clutch master cylinder is located on the inside of the firewall, not the outside.

I cannot bleed the clutch on my kia caranvil


First lets make sure we are on the same page here.Your saying you have no clutch resivioir and the system is feed from the brake master cylinder correct .Now the clutch has two clylinders the master witch atteches to the clutch pedal with the rod and it mounted on the fire wall . The slave cylinder is mounted between the bell houseing and the engine . And to replace this you would need to remove the transmission and actualy moves the pressure plate springs back when the pedal is depressed . Think of it like a light its eighter on or off and pushing the pedal down turns it off Normaly the clutch would be bleed at the slave cylinder there should be a bleeder fitting near the top of the bell hoseing. And should be bleed just a brake line no trick you just have to find the bleeder . Check for fluid at the clutch master on the pedal if you see any oil at all leaking you will never be able to keep it bleed sometimes there bad even when new .If oil can get out air is GETTING IN and it will constantly need to be rebleed. Any questions fell free to ask

Bought new clutch new slave new master still no pressure on pedal how do you bleed the clutch


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.

Fitted new clutch and slave cylinder in 2.5 v6


crawl up under the dashboard & look where the clutch pedal rod goes through the firewall. look for traces of brake fluid at the rubber boot of the rod. a clutch master cylinder normally will leak to the inside of the vehicle & down the firewall when it fails. Replace as required & bleed clutch system using the bleeder valve that should be on the slave asy.

Peressure bleed a cluch pt 2003


Try a manual bleed first, as it may achieve the same result without the hassle of pressure bleeding.
Fill the master cylinder resevoir, keep it topped up while cracking open the slave delivery line- wait for a steady dribble of fluid to come through - a couple of gentle pumps of the master cylinder will help the process.
Then move to the slave cylinder bleed nipple - crack it open and repeat the process above.
Once you get a bit of pedal pressure back, it's fairly straightforward to complete the bleed process.
