They used to have bleeder valves, however, now you use a flat feeler guage to lift the seal up slighly to bleed them.

SOURCE: how do I bleed hydraulic clutch in 1991 jeep

There is a bleeder on the drivers side of the transmission follow the tube from the clutch master cylinder if you cannot find it. Pump the clutch up and hold it down then open the bleeder repeat till air is gone. May have to bleed again after driving a bit. If you want to bleed the clutch master cylinder run a tube from where the line goes into the cylinder and take the cap off and run the tube into the fluid (make sure its in the fluid) then pump the clutch slowly until no air bubbles. I just replaced my clutch master cylinder this is where the information comes from hope it helps you out!

well you will need some help
make sure the resivor is full and have someone hold the clutch pedal to the floor and crack the bleeder on the slave cyl. and close after the spert of fluid comes out. when the screw is closed have the person in the drivers seat slowly let up and push down 3 times and hold down and bleed one more time. refill your resivor and repete if you dont think the peddal is quite right. just dont run it out of fluid
good luck it realy isnt that hard.

Have somebody pump the pedal fast about 3 or 4 times, on the last pump hold pedal down and close bleeder. Make sure fluid stays full in master cylinder, try it again, if it still doesn't work, then you might have a bad slave valve, if you haven't already replaced it.

Clutch pedal goes to floor and half works on my b2200 1987 mazda pick-up


If the clutch is hydraulic operated, you need to bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder, down on the transmission housing. Bleed it just like you bleed brakes of air in the line-open bleeder valve, someone pushes clutch pedal slowly to floor, close valve, and repeat until fluid comes out valve in a steady stream. Make sure the clutch reservoir is full before starting. It uses regular brake fluid.
If not hydraulic, it would be cable operated. Adjust the cable until clutch pedal is right.

I have an 84 Honda shadow vt700. The clutch was working but would slip when hot it would get to where I could release clutch with bike in 1st gear and nothing would happen! It would just continue to idle!...


Bleeding the hydraulics will not improve the friction drive of the clutch in any way,your clutch drive plate is worn out and needs replacing. To bleed the hydraulic line ,make sure that the master cylinder is fully topped up,pump clutch lever several times then tie ,using a zip tie the clutch lever all the way to the handle bar,gently open the bleed screw and await fluid to start dripping from the bleed screw, this may take an hour or two but it will eventually bleed itself,once 25% of the fluid has discharged from the the master cylinder tighten up the bleed screw and this is the easiest DIY way of bleeding a hydraulic system, without a pressure bleeder.

Clutch slave cylinder how to bleed


HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING Do not use fluid which has been bled from a system to fill the reservoir as it may be aerated, have too much moisture content or possibly be contaminated. Clean the dirt and grease from the cap to ensure that no foreign substances enter the system. It is also important to maintain the fluid level in the clutch reservoir to the top step with hydraulic clutch fluid Hydraulic Clutch Fluid GM P/N 12345347 or equivalent.
  1. Attach a hose to the bleeder screw on the clutch actuator assembly and submerge the other end of the hose in a container of hydraulic clutch fluid.
  2. Depress the clutch pedal slowly and hold.
  3. Loosen the bleeder screw to purge air.
  4. Tighten the bleeder screw to 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  5. Let up on the clutch pedal.
  6. Repeat Steps 2 through 5 until all air is purged from the system.
  7. Fill the reservoir to the top step with hydraulic clutch fluid.
  8. Repeat this bleeding procedure if there is a grinding noise during the clutch spin down procedure.

My clutch is not angaging need to see how can i bleed


Hydraulic Clutch System BLEEDING The clutch system can be bled using a pressure bleeder. Follow the instructions that come with the pressure bleeder for the proper pressure bleeding procedure. The maximum line pressure while pressure bleeding must not exceed 36 psi (248 kPa). NOTE: To bleed a clutch manually requires the assistance of a second person, a section of hose that is compatible with brake fluid (preferably clear) and fits the slave cylinder bleed screw snugly and a container to catch the fluid that is bled through the system. As brake hydraulic fluid easily absorbs moisture, always use fresh fluid when bleeding a hydraulic system.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. To bleed the system perform the following:
    1. Top off the hydraulic fluid reservoir using a fluid that meets the standards of the vehicle's hydraulic system.
    2. Open the clutch slave cylinder bleed screw and press the clutch pedal to the floor and hold the pedal down.
    3. Close the clutch slave cylinder bleed screw.
    4. Release the clutch pedal.
    5. Check the hydraulic fluid level and top off as necessary.
  3. Repeat the above steps until the discharged fluid is clean and no air bubbles appear during the bleeding process.

Clutch won't engage--cannot shift


hydraulic clutch needs servicing or needs bleeding like a brake system wont work with air in the lines neither will hydraulic clutch's. you shouldnt have to change the clutch just service the slave cylinder ,that should give you back some pedal to use..you might want a mechanic to bleed it or have it replaced.
