If there is no bleedr, the loosen the lie and get fluid to at lest that point. The bleeder, not having onwe is unlikely, no offemce, just make sure. If the bleeder is anywhere it dhould or would be at a point higher than the line on the slave cylinder down on the bell housing. Open it and let gravity takr over unti the fluid drips steasdy. Slowly depress clutch once to get fluid moving.If long term non usem The cylinders, master and slave, good luck may have leakage needing replacement.l good luc and be careful. be sure brakes are set and vehicle is in neutral when underneath. Engine need not be running.

Trying to bleed clutch on 92 ford f150. Have done gravity bleed and everything eles. Get relly good peddel until i start truck and then the peddle is gone till i shut truck back off.

bleeding a clutch is a 2 person or pressure bleed job
have a mate pump the clutch pedal the hold it down while you open the bleeder nipple
close the nipple and repeat the pump action
hold down and open the bleed nipple
repeat the operation until you have a solid pedal and no air coming out
keep an eye on the fluid level in the reservoir

Clutch fluid is low to almost totally gone can i just add fluid to refill it or is there more that i have to do.

Yes just fill it up. If you have got air in the line from this you will notice the clutch does not disengage properly, causing hard shifting and crunches when you try to change gear. Then you have to bleed the line or get gearbox damage.

Do you refill resivor after you pump pedal each time to bleed a manual clutch

I would hope not: That would imply that you're pushing through the entire reservoir each pump. If you are, check for leaks. However, about every 5 pumps would be a good time to refill during a bleedoff.

My clutch on my 92' Isuzu Trooper goes to the floor board without any resistance. (Too easily)... Does that mean I need to add more fluid to the clutch reservoir?

fluid level would be the first thing to check. make sure the fluid level is up to the maximum mark/line.
check for any obvious fluid leaks.
you may have to bleed the system to make sure there is no air in the fluid. there are various brake bleeding kits that will work, just follow the instructions on your kit.
if there is still a problem then you may have a seal gone in the master cylinder, or in the slave cylinder.

I have no resistance when pressing in the clutch on my 1994 toyota pick up. I think the fluid is low but do not know where the resevoir is to refill it

Alright, non resistance when pressing the clutch can be for couple of reason, First the fluid is low, and you can tap this off by filling it up, The resevior for it in your master cyclinder pistol which is located towards the top firewall of your driver side. Next to your brake fuild refill tank. Top this off to it's recommended level with brake fluid the DOT requirement. If still no pressuire from your clutch, then it could be your master cylinder, Test this by pressing on the clutch and have someone open the resvior tank cap and see if there is any movement in the liquid. If there is, then it could be your slave cylinder where it is located towards your clutch housing. Once located, You can also test it by bleeding the bolt to see and having someone pressing on the clutch to see if fluid is being push or with the bleeding bolt screwed back on, see if the metal rod connected to the slave cylinder is moving when clutch is being pushed inside. If everything seems to work, then your clutch is bad, damaged pilot, or clutch bearing or simply worn out clutch.

Hard time shifting. replaced clutch slave cylinder. still shifts hard. plenty of clutch fluid.

Sometimes the slave cylinder takes a little extra bleeding to remove the air in it & until it's all gone, the clutch won't open completely, causing the problem you are describing.

If the shifting can be done between all of the gears while the engine isn't running on level ground then the forks should be ok & not bent inside the transmission and you should be able to get the car to shift properly.

I've done several of these and found that if you start by making sure the Clutch Master cylinder is full, and remember when you add fluid, try to add without aerating the fluid. Pouring down the side of a funnel is better than pouring straight into the container as fluid picks up air during the splash. Hopefully doing it this way will prevent small new air bubbles from getting back into the lines when bleeding.

Next, after having one person pump the clutch pedal quickly 3 or 4 times & continuing to hold the pedal to the floor until you've completed this phase, instead of just releasing the pressure through the bleeder valve, also push on the clutch fork/rod to go ahead & force the fluid completely out of the slave cylinder, tighten the bleeder and have the assistant slowly pump the pedal to bring the slave cylinder back into contact to where it was before you pushed it to drain it. Refill & bleed as usual a couple of times. If you don't have a good clutch pedal now with good release, you need to check the Clutch Master Cyliinder since once the bleeding is done, this is a completely automatically adjusting system. good luck

Where is the bleed valve for clutch on a 1991 jeep wrangler

1. Fill master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support vehicle. Attach bleeder hose to bleeder screw on bleed line of slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 (attached in link) . Place other end of hose in glass container 1/2 full of brake fluid. Loosen bleeder screw while holding bleeder screw fitting.

2. Have an assistant depress clutch pedal to the floor. Tighten bleeder screw and release clutch pedal. Repeat bleeding procedure until fluid entering container is free of bubbles. DO NOT allow reservoir to run out of fluid during bleeding. Refill clutch master cylinder reservoir.

CAUTION: DO NOT allow bleed line to bend or flex when loosening
bleeder screw.

2003 f150 clutch was fine and now almost on floor before disengages. No fluid leak maybe air but where to bleed is a mystry

At the small cylinder on the clutch housing, also you can adjust the free play, about 2 to 3 mm.
