You should not be bleeding the brake system if you don't know how . It is a very precise procedure and you should not operate the car until you have qualified help.. It can't be done by yourself you need help to bleed the system unless you have a DBR scan tool.

SOURCE: replaced clutch slave cylinder blew

Could be a couple of different things.
1) your clutch master has a plugged pressure bypass, and it is sending excessive pressure to the slave and blowing it out.
2) The clutch throw out arm is bound, and will not allow the slave to compress it.
3) The replacement slave was defective.

What was the reason for replacing the slave in the first place?

if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris

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.

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.

Hello i have a 1993 chevy cheyyenne k1500 pickup with a v6 4.3 its a manual and my clutch line broke off of my slabe cylinder due to a crack in it from ware and tear which leaked fluid all out and lost...

I changed the slave cylinder on my 97 Accord and all I did was disconnect the lines, disconnect the linkage from the pedal, move some stuff to get it out, hook up the new one, fill with fluid, and bleed the line to the clutch cylinder. Point is, if you have to remove the slave cylinder, that's fine. You'll have to bleed the system anyway. Like bleeding brakes. I didn't have to drain any "tranny fluid" as the clutch fluid was a separate system. Had a drain pan underneath to catch fluid.

How remove and replace clutch slave cylinder 1996 acura integra

10 mm line wrench and a 12 mm wrench or socket. Takes 2 people to bleed it. Look at your master cylinder inside the cabin, they leak too. Most people recommend replacing both at the same time. On a car this old, you might replace the rubber hydralic line too.

How to bleed the clutch on a saturn 97

one way to bleed it is by pulling the piston like slave cylinder with the rod out of the transmission and by pushing the rod into the slave cylinder several times, make sure you have plenty of dot3 brake fluid in the clutch master slave before you do this. by pushing the rod into the slave cylinder it acts like doing a brake job it bleeds the air out into the clutch master slave cylinder and sucks in the break fluid getting rid of all air in the system. thats the only way to bleed those systems seeing as they are sealed systems

I have changed the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder, but still don't have pedal, we have bleed the lines and checked for leaks, no leaks were found. The new slave cylinder doesn't seem to be...

Thn the problem is the clutch master cylinder, it should build up pressure, ok try out this, remove the pipe which is going to the slave cylinder either from the clutch master cylinder or at the clutch slave cylinder and get someone to pump the pedal while you block the pipe and see if there is fluid thrown out with pressure.If there is pressure there thn fit back the pipe and refill the reserviour wth brake fluid and open the bleeding nipple at the slave cylinder let some fluid pour out and tighten it and thn pump the pedal and retry bleeding.
If there is no pressure at the pipe thn its the clutch master cylinder.
Hope this helps!

Cannot get clutch to bleed. installed new slave cyl. hopefully i did it right???

TO bleed get some one to pump the pedal 4times fast and hold it down,then you undo the nipple, then lock it up again and do again then it should be 100% but if not and the slave cylinder was new then ok,,, but if you rebuilt it then recheck it and put the rubber and piston in correctly and rebleed
Now if still no good then get the master cylinder rebuilt and honed out.
Let me know if still having trouble Ron
