Question about 2002 Nissan Altima
Have put in new clutch kit in my r32 nissan skyline but since i have put the new one in i have lost all compression in the pedal i have tried to prim it but still wont work can some one help me with this
You either have air in the system or a faulty master cylinder.
Check fluid is being delivered from the master cyl. by slackening off the hydraulic line connection at the master cylinder while depressing pedal.
Until fluid is able to be delivered from the master cyl. itself you have no hope of bleeding the rest of the system.
As with all hydraulic bleeding processes, only release the fluid line when the pedal is being pushed slowly down or held down against the return spring pressure of the clutch pressure plate - re-tighten it on the upward stroke of the pedal to stop it drawing air back into the system.
If you are confident that there is fluid delivery from the master cyl. move to the clutch slave cylinder.
Again only open the bleeder valve when the pedal is being pushed slowly down (i.e. the hydraulic system is pressurised).
(If you keep the master cylinder full of hydraulic fluid, sometimes gravity will cause the line to 'self bleed' if the bleed nipple is left slightly open for several minutes at the start of the bleed process).
When fluid appears, finish the slave cylinder air bleed in the normal way.
If you have the time to spare, I have often found that provided the master cylinder is kept full, leaving the system overnight will allow a lot of the air to leave the system (gravity helps).
