You must lift the front end at least on a 45 degree so that the air will go the highest point..then keep the fluid full at all times lose the bleeder screw and watch it, when you do not see anymore bubbles tighten it, if you have help then have someone pull the clutch peddle and hold it down .. open the bleeder valve and repeat the prosses

if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris

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.

Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to add model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-07-31-002A (Section 07 - Transmission/Transaxle). This bulletin is being issued to inform dealers of an improved procedure to aid in the ease of bleeding the clutch hydraulic system for the above listed vehicles. This procedure can be used anytime air is introduced into the hydraulic system. Following this procedure may also reduce the number of unnecessary parts replaced for low clutch pedal reserve and high shift effort.
Verify that all the lines and fittings are dry and secure.
Clean the dirt and grease from the reservoir cap in order to ensure that no foreign substances enter the system.
Remove the reservoir cap.
Fill the reservoir to the proper level with the required fluid.
Attach the J 43485 (Adapter) to the J 35555 (Mity Vac), or equivalent.
Brake fluid will deteriorate the rubber on J 43485. Use a clean shop cloth to wipe away the fluid after each use.
Place and hold the adapter on the reservoir filler neck to ensure a tight fit. In some cases, the adapter will fit into the reservoir opening.
Apply a vacuum of 51-68 kPa (15-20 hg) and remove the adapter.
Refill the reservoir to the proper level.
Repeat Steps 6 and 7.
If needed, refill the reservoir and continue to pull a vacuum until no more bubbles can be seen in the reservoir or until the fluid level no longer drops.
The vehicle will move if started in gear before the Actuator Cylinder is refilled and operational. Start the vehicle the first time in neutral to help prevent personal injury from vehicle movement and see if the transmission will shift easily into gear.
Pump the clutch pedal until firm (to refill actuator cylinder).
Add additional fluid if needed.
Test drive vehicle to ensure proper operation.


NOTE: The principal parts of the clutch system are the driving members, the driven member, and the hydraulic system. The clutch housing is part of the manual transaxle assembly.

Driving Members
The driving members consist of two flat surfaces machined to a smooth finish. One of these is the rear face of the engine flywheel, and the other is the front face of the clutch cover assembly.

Driven Members
The driven member is the clutch disc. The clutch disc is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc slides on the splines to provide clutch disengagement and engagement.

The clutch disc is held in contact between the flywheel and the clutch cover assembly by the pressure of a diaphragm spring in the clutch cover assembly.

Hydraulic System
The clutch release system consists of a clutch master cylinder, remote reservoir, tubing and an clutch actuator cylinder assembly. The clutch master cylinder is mounted to the front of the dash and is controlled by a pushrod connected to the clutch pedal. The clutch actuator cylinder assembly is mounted inside the clutch housing. Tubing connects the clutch master cylinder to the clutch actuator cylinder assembly.

Clutch problems .I have to pump my clutch for 15 minutes to get it to shift into gear when car is running. What is the problem


this is due to air in the clutch system, or a low fluid level. bleed some new clutch fluid through. It may be caused by a leaking seal, so check for leaks at the clutch master cylnder and slave cylnder. the master cylnder seal sometimes leaks down the firewall inside the car. Replacement cylnders ar an easier option than replacing just the seals

I have a 1985 Chevy S-10. I have not started or drove this vehicle for a few months. I go to start it today and the clutch goes all the way to the floor with no resistance. Please help?


Your S10 has a clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder, a hydraulic clutch system.

You need to fill the master cylinder and bleed both the master and slave cylinders in order for the clutch mechanism to work properly.

Clutch problem


Hi,
Check any flexible hoses used for condition, check clutch reservoir that it still contains fluid.

If it does, ask an assistant to press the clutch down fully - while you watch the liquid level. It should fall, then rise again when off the pedal. If it just stays put, you need new seals on the master cylinder.

If all the fluid is gone, but no obvious leaks, remove the slave cylinder, and replace the seals in that or replace with new unit.

it is possible that you just have a slight leak in the slave cylnder, allowing the fluid level to fall enough to allow air in the system giving the fault. Again, replace seals in slave cylinder, and refill with clean brake/clutch fluid, and bleed out the air using the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder.

Any reasonable garage will do this for you if access is difficult.

Thank you for using Fixya!
