I think you may have pushed the pedal to quickly and the piston pushed the seals passed the seal point need to strip out the slave again refit the seals in the correct position and then when bleeding make sure the caliper nipple is open and push really gently and slowly on the pedal ,do this procedure religously to all four calipers

Testimonial: "That accually makes a lot of sense haven't taken the slave back out yet but will definitely give that a shot! thx a lot for the input haven't done a lot of internal slaves! when bleeding can I just bleed the slave or do I have to do all 4 wheels?"

    you must bleed all 4 wheels as well and push the pedal VERY slowly making sure the bleed nipple is undone enough to let fluid flow easily and all will be good

Clutch slave cylinder wont come up to presure


If the master cylider and slave cylinder have been rebuilt and they won't hold, it sounds like there is an internal leak in one end of the system.
Could be a damaged (cracked) cylinder where the rubber cup will not seal.

Why does clutch leak off and wont go into gear 96 toyota tacoma when you push on clutch pedal goes to the floor it wont engage clutch to be able to put into gear


the most likely reason is either the clutch master cyl. needs to be replaced.or the.slave cyl. its mounted down on the transmation under the hood find the resivore for the clutch. check the fluid level.if its low , fill it back up , and look for signs of a leak
you will probally have to bleed out all of the air from the system.its done almost the same way as bleeding the brakes. Good Luck.

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!

Bad master cyl. or bad slave cyl.


Is there any oil coming out of the slave cylinder ? Try cracking the bleed screw and gravity bleed the slave. Check the reservoir to ensure that you maintain adiquit oil in it, may push your air lock out, if that is what it is, chances are that it is your slave cylinder giving you all the problems.

Clutch petal had no resistance Changed the master & slave cylinder, added fluid no air leaks, pumped clutch pedal with no presuure. What else could I do?


did you bleed the clutch? there's a bleeder nut/bolt on the slave cylinder. have someone pump up the cluth and hold, then loosen nut/bolt and air will come out. repeat process untill pedal has resistance and good fluid coming from bleeder. make sure to top of fluid during process, if you run it dry, you have to repeat the whole process again. note, i'm assuming this due to my experince on other vechiles, never worked on an isuzu before. but had the same issue on others.

Bleeding clutch slave cylinder


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.
