You'll have to bleed your system. There should be a bleeder screw on your slave cyllinder.Stick a piece of vacuum hose on it, and have the other end of the hose in a bottle of brake fluid. Keep pumping your clutch until no more bubbles come out of the hose, and then, with the clutch held in, tighten your bleeder screw again, and you should be good.

It could be possible you have bad parts. I have had several new parts bad, and the shop charged me every time i swapped them out. Hopefully the shop your working with is willing to swap parts out again, with out being charged for labor. Air bubbles can also be a nightmare when working with hydrolic systems.

What master CLY did you replace clutch or brakes you have air in the slave CLY for the clutch system and you will have to bleed the system and make sure you don't run low on brake fluid while you are bleeding the system.

My 90 ford probe lx will not drive unless i start it in second gear and will not shift in any gears when clutch is applied. Clutch master replaced and clutch. What else can be the problem???

See if your slave cylinder needs bleeding. Follow the line from the master cylinder down to the bell housing to find the slave. When clutch pedal is pressed, a rod on the slave should move outward just a little. It will move the clutch fork to engage the clutch.

Why is my chevy s10 gears are getting harder to put in ?

I would look to see if the clutch master cylinder is low. It is smaller but like the brake master cylinder. If so check to see if the slave cylinder on the bell housing is leaking or the master cylinder is leaking. Low fluid or no adjustment will make it hard to get in gear.

1986 isuzu trooper clutch pedal went soft

some of these were manual clutch cable check adjustment of cable at firewall (bulkhead) and check for cracks around where cable goes through to inside cab common on old girls.
if hydraulic clutch system
check fluid in clutch master cylinder is it low?
it could have leaking slave cylinder on gear box bell housing or your clutch needs replacing, gear box out and replace clutch as a kit, pressure plate, clutch plate, thrust bearing (comes as kit) but dont forget to check and or replace the spigot bearing in the rear of the crank shaft when doing clutch kit.

replace the clutch master cylinder. The rubbers on the piston swell over time and/ or break down blocking up the ports in the cylinder.. Wrong fluid is the main culprit for this type of fault.

My 1989 chevy beretta will not go in gears i have fluid it was going in drive but now it locked in a gear and would not go.

I actually have the same issue with my '90 Beretta. I have not yet had the time to look at it but I could suggest that either your master or slave clutch cylinder is shot or your clutch linkage needs to be tuned/replaced. A Master clutch will run about $50.00 at your Autozone or Advanced Auto, and the slave is about $40.00. I'm not sure wht the linkage will run you, nor do I know the cost of repair if you decide to have a mechanic fix it for you.

These systems are a pain to get the air out of. Have an assistang push in on the pedal and push back on the slave cyl. and crack bleeder valve at the same time. Step on the clutch pedal slowly when doing this.
