Hello Herman, I assume that you are referring to the clutch slave cylinder. Did you check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder? Fill the master cylinder and try it a few times. If it works better but not good enough, you may need to bleed the clutch system. The slave cylinder should bleed at or near the front on the side of the transmission.

SOURCE: on solution #1 dec 2008 I would like to know where

After reading this I have to ask if parts are origional why do they not work properly. My first suggestion is that bleading not done effectively. If air is present in line,slave cylender etc. then it would not have travel needed or master cylinder is frozen at point short of origional return or is wrong one. There shouldn't be a reason to have to purchase rod with upgrade unless specified by manufacturer and if so then they should have supplied it. Inspect each part and compare with old ones if possible, if master is origional then make sure that it returns fully to give travel to pedal. when bleading system fill slave cylinder as much as possible disconnected from line and blead many times.

Its either the clutch fluid is wrong or not at the correct levels or it has not been bled correctly.

It sounds like it's just a link in the hose i would replace that and bleed your clutch to make sure there's no air in the line and go from there, hopefully this solves your problem

You may have to bleed the slave cylinder to get it to work. Bleed it just like brakes-pedal going to floor, open valve. Close valve, pump pedal and pedal to floor again with bleed valve open. When fluid comes out in steady stream with pedal pressed, done. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder when clutch is pressed-it should move out to move the clutch lever.

If you're talking about an hydraulic clutch system that uses brake fluid:
1. Fill the reservoir with clean brake fluid.
2. Have an assistantpull the clutch pedal up and leave it there.
3. Locate the slave bleeder - the slave is connected to the master, is located on the transmission housing and pushes the clutch release lever).
4. Open the bleeder and have the assistant push the clutch pedal down.
5. Close the bleeder.
6. Make sure there's plenty of fluid in the reservoir
7. Repeat steps 2-4-5-6 until brake fluid comes out with uniform pressure from the bleeder. Non uniform pressure is sign there may be air in the system.
There should be good pressure at the pedal now in the up position. Pressing it should disengage the clutch.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

How do you replace the slave cylinder


Step 1
Raise the vehicle and support with jack stand placed underneath the frame.
  • Step 2 Remove the cover from the reservoir on top of the clutch master cylinder. It will be located in the engine bay on the driver side of the firewall, near the brake master cylinder. Fill the reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry at any time during the bleeding process.
  • Step 3 Locate the clutch slave cylinder. It will be bolted to the clutch housing. Locate the small bleeder screw near where the hydraulic hose connects to the slave cylinder.
  • Step 4 Connect a length of clear plastic tube to the bleeder screw.
  • Step 5 Open the slave cylinder bleeder screw, by turning it counterclockwise. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal until clean brake fluid seeps out of the bleeder screw. Then close the bleeder screw. Make sure the clutch master cylinder does not run dry.
  • Step 6 Have the assistant pump the clutch pedal a few times and hold it against the floor. While the pedal is held against the floor, open the bleeder screw and allow the some fluid to seep out. Close the bleeder screw before releasing the clutch pedal.
  • Step 7 Repeat the process listed in the step above and watch the fluid seeping out of the slave cylinder. The clutch is fully bled when there are no more air bubbles in the fluid seeping out of the slave cylinder. You will be able to see the bubbles in the clear plastic tubing. Do not allow the clutch master cylinder to run dry at any point.
  • Step 8 Lower the vehicle.

    Have problem getting into first gear but all other gears are fine


    Alright let me see if I understand correctly.

    When you push the clutch pedal to the floor it doesn't engage until its almost hitting the floor? If thats correct then it is more than likely your slave cylinder or your fluid is low due to a bad slave cylinder. If your lucky your slave cylinder sits on the outside of your transmission and not inside the bellhousing causing you to drop the transmission to get to it. Most vehicles have them on the outside so you should be alright.

    I would definetly check the level in the fluid resevoir. It should be located near the brake fluid resevoir. The resevoir for your clutch takes regular ole' brake fluid as well.

    If however you mean that as you let the clutch pedal out and it doesn't engage until you have it almost fully depressed then that would indicate a worn clutch. If this is the case you may have an adjustment but I hightly doubt it. You would have to have a cable operated clutch to have an adjustment on their.

    If your fluid is full and the pedal still feels like it does you can try bleeding the system.

    If you have ever bled brakes its the same principle. What you do is locate the slave cylinder. Locate the line going into the slave cylinder. Where this line is hooked to your slave cylinder you should see a bolt with a hole in it. If you unscrew this bolt and press on the clutch pedal it should shoot out a stream of fluid.

    So what you do is pump your clutch pedal 3 or 4 times and then hold it to the floor while a friend unloosens the bolt with the hole it in the center of it.

    Keep holding the pedal to the floor until they have tightened the bolt back up.

    Then repeat the process atleast a few more times to ensure all air and debris are expelled from the system.

    If this doesn't help I would definetly say its your slave cylinder going bad, which they do.

    I really hope I was of some assistance to you, and if I was please give me a good rating and thank you,

    Clutch peddle goes to the floor


    Do you mean that stays to the floor because the clutch peddle has to reach the floor. If that is what you mean then probably you need a knew clutch or if it is hydraulic maybe it reflling and dicomression.

    The clutch slave cylinder on this model is located inside the transmission bell housing. You would have to pull the tranny to see it.
    Bleeding the slave cylinder is a fairly simple process.
    Underneath the vehicle on the driver side you will see two hydraulic lines going into the transmission where the tranny connects to the engine. If you have trouble locating just follow the hydraulic line from the master cylinder on the firewall.
    One of these lines is actually sticking out of the tranny and has a bleeder valve on the end.
    You will need a 9/16 box end wrench and a 5/16 or 1/4 inch box end wrench and someone with you to press the clutch pedal while you are under the vehicle.

    1. Top off the master cylinder with clean brake fluid. Also, MAKE SURE you keep the fluid level in the master cylinder topped off during this process. You may need to have a second helper to take care of this so you don't have to keep climbing out from underneath.

    2.Hold the line with the 9/16 and loosen the bleeder valve a couple turns or until fluid begins to drain. Have someone SLOWLY depress the clutch pedal to the floor and hold it down to the floor until you tighten the bleeder valve back up. MAKE SURE YOU ARE OUT OF THE WAY OF THE SQUIRTING FLUID WHEN THE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED!!

    3. Once you are sure the valve is tight, have them pump the clutch pedal a couple times . Repeat step two until the pedal has a full stroke.
