How do i bleed clutch on 2000 trans am ws6 ram air


I\'m assuming this is the one with the 5.7L LS1 V8. Ok, bleeding the clutch is real no different than bleeding your brakes. Locate our slave cylinder.(Not the reservoir) In most cases, it\'s best to start with a gravity bleeding. Make sure the reservoir is full, loosen the bleeder on the slave cylinder, until you have a steady stream coming out. Then tighten the bleeder, and check the peddle.SUCKAUTION**** MAKE SURE THE BLEEDER VALVE IS TIGHTENED AND CAP IS ON THE RESERVOIR BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE CLUTCH PEDDLE!!! AS MISSING THIS STEP WILL **** UP AIR INTO THE LINE.Step 2, have a friend sit inside the car, and continuously pump the clutch(like bleeding brakes) about 10 pumps should do it. Have friend hold the peddle to the floor and announce that it is to the floor. ***They must hold the peddle to the floor*****while they are holding the peddle, loosen the bleeder valve until fluid comes out. repeat process until no micro bubbles come out, just clean fluid. Finally, remember to top off your fluids after bleeding, as you will naturally loose some in the process. Hope this helps. ^^

Gear doesn't engage


When the problem acures again.Have someone step on the peddle,then release does the clutch leaver in the bell housing go back allso,if not loosen the line at slave cylinder,does it go back now,if not might be binding at trans input shaft.if it does release tighten line again pump peddle 3 times and go after master cylinder line.with peddle released does fluid squrt out.has the fluid ever been changed.like all fluids they absorb moisture that freezes or creates dirt from rust and binds the system.i would flush with DOT3 or DOT4 BRAKE FLUID.

Can 2002 sunfire slave cylinder leak and make the clutch slip from the fluid. their's no fluid in the resiver and car wont start


If the resivor is empty then when you push on the clutch it isn't disengaging allowing the engine to start. The best way to fix this problem is to install a new slave cylinder fill the resivor with fluid have someone push the clutch down open the bleeder valve to let the air out. close the bleeder valve release the clutch push down the clutch hold it to the floor open the bleeder let the air out close the bleeder and let up on clutch. continue doing this until you have a stream of fluid coming out of the bleeder with no air. after every 2 or 3 times check the resivor and fill as needed and dont run it out of fluid while doing this or you will have to start over. After you get a steady stream of fluid from the slave cylinder bleeder when you push on the clutch you will be able to feel the clutch disingage and be able to start the engine and drive.

Me and a mate have been trying to bleed my clutch on my 80 series for 5 hrs and carnt get anywhere. What the hell am I doing wrong? I can do everythingt else other then 1 of the simplist job


Just follow the procedure in the right order. Fill the clutch reservoir on the master cylinder to the max and leave the lid loose. Fit a transparent plastic pipe on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder bleed nipple. Put the other end of the pipe into a jar to catch the waste fluid. Put some thick grease around the base threads of the bleed nipple, this stops air being sucked in via the threads whne the nipple is slackened off. Loosen the bleed nipple by 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate slowly depress the clutch peddle. When he has reached maximum travel have him hold it there while you turn the bleed nipple a third turn back to tight. Have your mate release the clutch peddle, clutch fluid from the master reservoir should now fill the the master cylinder. Have you mate press the peddle a quarter way and then release the bleed nipple a 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate depress the clutch peddle all the way to maximum travel. Again tighten off the bleed nipple before releasing the clutch peddle. Keep doing this process until no more air bubbles can be seen in the fluid in the pipe attached to the bled nipple. Every four cycles or so check on the fluid level in the master reservoir and keep topped up with fresh fluid. When everything completed tighten the bleed nipple, it is not necessary to tighten the hell out of it as at some point you may need to do this again. Wipe everything down pump the clutch peddle a few times to be sure of correct operation and no leaks.

Its a 1989 nissan 240sx its out of fluid on the clutch resivor. will adding fluid bring the pedal back to operating?


If with brakes, your fluid is low, this is usually an indication you need to replace the pads/shoes or you have another problem, possibly a leak, the same goes for hydralic clutch systems. You should never have to add brake or clutch fluid.

You can add fluid the the clutch master cylinder but if it is completely empty you will probably need to bleed the slave cylinder. You need to check for any leaks and also you might be on the verge of a clutch replacement. I cant see the car so I am giving you general info.

The clutch is to the floor in my hyundai elantra 2000, where do i put the fluid in, nothing is marked.


The fluid resivor is a small bowl with a cap on it on the drivers side under the hood near the brake master cylinder. If there is no fluid in it the clutch may be worn out and needs to be replaced. Also if you fill the resivor you may need to bleed the system. Fill the resivoir with normal brake fluid (DOT 3) them locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder bolted to the transmission. I have pictures for you of the Clutch master cylinder (where the fluid goes) and the slave cylinder where you bleed it.

I can't get back brakes on a 1995 Monte Carlo. I replaced the brake pads all around and put new line on the back. It had good brakes on the back when I started.


Have some one pump the break up and hold the peddle doun to the floor and take back break line loose and see if you are getting fluid to the back. if not you need to check lines for bends and clogs. And check the resivor for clogs and fluid. If you are then change the break cylinder It has gone bad.

Mazda 626 - Hard to shift into gear.


With any vehicle that has a hydraulic clutch, a worn master cylinder or slave cylinder will give this very symptom. First step is to check the fluid in the resivor. If it is low, you will want to check for fluid bypassing the seals. Be sure to check under the rubber dust cover as fluid can collect there and not be readily visible. Also, if the fluid in the resivor is dark colored, it is an indication of the internal seals going bad and you will need to replace the cylinders.
