SOURCE: bleeding hydraulic clutch

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.

somthing is leaaking down then from what your desribing. probably the slave is it leaking fluid into the bellhousing?? these do trap air badly too because the bleeder is on the rear of the slave and it runs down hill with the drive train. jack the rear of truck as high as possible to get the air to rise to bleeder and bleed again

While you were bleeding the clutch, did you maintain the the hydraulic fluid level? It sounds like it ran out of fluid.

About a year and a half ago, we replaced the clutch in my daughters 2007 Chevy Cobalt. The shop replaced the master cylinder yesterday and this morning, there is no pedal again. Any ideas?


Hi most chevy"s are fitted with a concentric slave thrust bearing. This normally creates hydraulic fluid leakage between engine block and gearbox bell housing if not so , check hydraulic pipe lines for leaks. bleed system and be certain hydraulic pressure maintains .If problem persists check and replace clutch master and slave or might be a rare case of a faulty pressure plate.

I have a 2000 Isuzu hombre. I put a new clutch and slave cylinder in it. Can I adjust it. Is right off the floor. Hard to shift sometimes


its really a Chevy S10,
the only Japan part is the name sticker.
so what engines there?
hydraulic clutch is auto-dusting
after all air is bleed out of the system

diagnosing clutch can be bit tricky
but here are those tricks (blew many up racing)
the slave has a rod to a lever,
if bleed ok, can be hard, as the tubes go vertical
like a motorcycle or aircraft
bleeding is hard. (on all)
(bubbles float up as you force them down, dang a pain) (reverse brake bleed kit a godsend)

once done bled, i check the slave stroke distance.
its about 1 inch stoke,(2 men test)
no slack there, due to the hydraulic auto adjust.
see slack yell load, air in lines. or rod fit wrong.
so it moves about 1 full inch on the outer fork tip
PEDAL to the floor,
if yes and clutch drags, the clutch is bad.

one acid test of clutch
is REVERSE, it's a NON Syncrho mesh gear, a real gear. and fussy, (nice for testing, I learned long ago)
and will grind at the first bit, of clutch drag.
its like the coal miners canary bird, help me...

I love clutches, learned to drive in 15speed dump truck.
it had crash boxes... 5x3
double clutching all gears.all day long.

How do you bleed a hydraulic clutch on a 1977 corvette


you bleed like you would the brake system. there is a bleeder screw on the slave cylinder that you bleed the system.

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.

Where is the slave cylinder on 91 gmc sierra


I had a 92 Chevy Cavalier which had the hydraulic clutch system like yours. I had intended to flush and purge the hydraulic clutch system at the same time I flushed and purged the brake system. I traced the hydraulic lines from the master cylinder into the front of the transmission where the clutch is located. This is the most likely place to look for the slave. I didn't find a way to bleed the lines with the transmission still in and the Hanes manual I had was unhelpful. The dealer told me it was a "special job" that had to be done in a shop.

94 Chevy 2500 Clutch Engagement?


You probably have a hydraulic clutch. A hydraulic clutch has both a master and a slave cylinder. The slave cylinder engages/disengages the clutch plate. You might be low on clutch fluid in the master cylinder, or the system may need to bled similar to bleeding brakes. Worst case is you need a new clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. They should all be replaced when doing a clutch job.

Where do you bleed the clutch at on a 1997 jeep wrangler what is the location of it


This all depends if this is a hydraulic clutch or if its cable operated, you can only bleed hydraulic clutches, to bleed it you would bleed at the ******, you will see the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder that operates the clutch fork.

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.

Can't get brake fluid from abs into lines after installing new brake line on a 2000 chevy silverado


I read this same problem all the time, the reason u can't bleed the lines is that a special tool is required that pluge into the ABS and holds the hydraulic valves in the ABS control open for bleeding, there is no way around this.
