Hydraulic clutch


yes you have to bleed the slave cylinder at the clutch-look around for wettness due to a leak while you bleed it- start by cheking the fluid level and keep full while bleeding-you will need 2 people to bleed-one to pump it up,hold it down then another underneath to open the bleeder-only open for a short time,then close and pump up again-should only take like 3 times-don't let the peddle up while bleeder is open and don't let the resivour run out of fluid or you'll just pump more air into system- cheers Denny

How do you adjust the clutch in a 2000 ford explorer US series?


Check the level of the fluid beneath the hood of the Ford Explorer. The reservoir is rather small, and is located near the firewall and the brake booster.Fill the reservoir to the proper level and pump the clutch pedal a few times to restore the pressure in the lines. If you find that the level in the reservoir does not stay the same, this may be an indication of a leak in the system. Check the reservoir, the slave cylinder (near the clutch housing) and the lines themselves, and repair or replace any faulty parts.
Bleed the system of any air bubbles. Using a tool like the Mityvac vacuum will help accomplish this task. Fill the pump bottle of the vacuum with fluid, and establish pressure in the tank. Open the cap on the master cylinder on Ford Explorer's master cylinder and insert the vacuum's tube.The vacuum sucks out old clutch fluid as well as any air bubbles that may have collected in the system. When you no longer see any air bubbles collecting in the pump bottle of the vacuum, you have successfully bled the clutch system.Replace the clutch every 105,000 miles.

I have a 1992 mx3 manauel trans is the clutch fluid in the brake line resvoiar too clutch not engaging propraley on all gears


If there is enough fluid the resvoir, that means the problem is somthing else like : Built air in the clutch line,throuw out bearing is starting to get bad, or the clutch is going bad depend on when the last time you put it in.

So the first thing you have to check is : try to see if there is any air in the line and pump it out.

Air in clutch line. how do you bleed the system?


1. Fill up the clutch reservior with right type and DOT of fluid (Dot 3 or Dot 4)
2. Have someone help pump the clutch paddle.
3. have the helper pump the paddle 5-7 time and hold it down and you open the bleeder and close it before the helper lets off the clutch paddle.
4. Keep repeating the above procedure until you see clear fluid coming out and no air is coming out with the fluid.

Good luck.

Ran out of clutch fluid now there is air in line...clutch is all the way to floor...how do i get air out of line...have tried everything


It's a matter of bleeding the clutch system completely. You do need to make sure you don't ,have any leaks at the Clutch Master Cyl. or at the Clutch Slave Cyl or the line running between both, and that you don't have clutch fluid in the drivers compartment just below where the clutch rod comes through the firewall. That would of course mean you have to replace the Clutch Master Cylinder due to internal leakage.

This isn't so unusual, you'll have to pull up on the pedal by hand & pump it a few times to get pressure enough to properly bleed the system, or, you will have to start with bleeding the Clutch Master Cyl. first by loosening the line there & have someone push down the pedal, then before letting up on the pedal, tighten the line to prevent air from being drawn in. Repeat two times to get any air out here.

If your parts and lines are all in good shape then re-fill the resivoir & have someone to pull up on the clutch by hand if needed & then if necessary, use their hand to depress & pull the pedal a few times to try & build some pressure so that you can bleed the Clutch slave cylinder a few times to get all of the air out. After you've finished bleeding the system, the pedal should stay in the up position except when being depressed and you should have consistently even pressure when using the clutch.

good luck.

Bleeeding the clutch


This is what I would do.
Fill the master with brake fluid.
Make sure the slave cylinder bleeder is closed.
Have someone pump the clutch pedal fully down and while allowing it to come fully up about 20 times and then hold down.
Now with the clutch held down ........open the bleeder and hopefully some air will come out.
Repeat until fluid appears with out air.
The clutch master cylinder piston must be allowed to come fully back in it's cylinder to take in a new load of brake fluid with every pump and in normal operation.
Another way to bleed it......is to vacuum the fluid through the system from the master cylinder .......connecting to the slave cylinder bleeder valve.

Need to pump clutch to start


try bleeding the lines, if you pump the clutch its compressing the fluid and the sensor is picking up that the clutch is disinguaged, if theres air in the lines the sensor wont register the clutch position.

Bleed cluch 96 ford ranger


Ok you want to check if your slave cylinder is bled and that is the pressure plate. However, the clutch may have pressure, it dose not always engage the clutch all the way witch would cause a slamming of the clutch. Anothing thing is to check is that if you have had your clutch changed recently make sure that the proper clutch has been in staled because there are a couple diffrent choises out their. If thats not it all I can think of is your slave cylinder fluid is low. You can use a hand held brake vaccum bleeder to do this as well and it removes a bunch of the air.

Bleeding a clutch properly removes all the air from the clutch line. You want to remove the air through the master cylinder at the top of the clutch system rather than through the bottom by pumping the clutch pedal. Pumping the clutch will not remove all the air. Bleeding the clutch on a Ford Ranger will take about 20 or 30 minutes.

Raise your truck 6 inches off the ground with a jack. You can drive the truck on ramps if you have them. Lifting the truck will make it easier to bleed the clutch I promise.

Use a turkey baster to **** the brake fluid out of the brake fluid reservoir located at the top of the master cylinder.

Fill the pump style oil can with brake fluid and attach the flex line to the opening on the oil can. Use a new can. You do not want to pump dirt particles or another fluid into the clutch line. This is just good practice I think.

Pump the flex line with brake fluid to remove all the air. You do not want to add additional air to the clutch system.

Open the bleeder valve located on the internal cylinder with a 7mm wrench and quickly attach the flex line to the valve. I believe this is the wrench you need this is what the size of my ranger is but yours may differ. (Remember the slave cylinder may be inside the transmission bell housing.)

Pump the can to move brake fluid up the clutch line. Stop when you no longer see bubbles coming out of the brake fluid reservoir. It should take about 5 minutes to remove all the air from your system.

Use the wrench to close the bleeder valve and remove the flex line from the bleeder valve and this should complete your job.

I hope you have the best of luck with this project!

Clutch cylinder inside car is it broke


you have to bleed the air out of it. If there is not fluid leaking from the master cylinder on the firewall.it can leak on the inside of car or the out side if the master cylinder is bad.first make sure the reservoir stays full then open the bleeder on slave cylinder. this is called gravity bleeding. once fluid comes out, tighten bleeder, pump pedal one time loosen bleeder while holding clutch pedal down and then tighten. do this repeatedly until no air comes out. you can pump pedal several times,then hold and bleed however you like but I have better luck with individual pumps. just make sure that the lines hooked to slave cylinder are tight and there are no air leaks. and that the line does not go below the slave cylinder because sometimes air gets trapped in the lowest part of system.
