Not difficult to do, just make sure you have plenty of extra fluid keeping the reservoir full. Bleeding will need an assistance. There's a bleeding valve on the slave cylinder unit it self. The unit does wear out over times rebuild or replace may be necessary due to loss of clutch slave cyclinder pressure. Have your assistance pump the clutch paddle 4-5 times and hold it to the floor while you turn the bleed valve quickly open and shut it off. do this 3-4 times and that should do the trick. Keep in mind, do not let your assistance release the clutch paddle up while you bleeding the valves, keep it to the floor until the bleeding is done and the valve is close. Hope that help, good luck.

Where is the slave cylinder on 91 gmc sierra

I had a 92 Chevy Cavalier which had the hydraulic clutch system like yours. I had intended to flush and purge the hydraulic clutch system at the same time I flushed and purged the brake system. I traced the hydraulic lines from the master cylinder into the front of the transmission where the clutch is located. This is the most likely place to look for the slave. I didn't find a way to bleed the lines with the transmission still in and the Hanes manual I had was unhelpful. The dealer told me it was a "special job" that had to be done in a shop.

1985 GMC Sierra clutch

It takes a lot of bleeding, keep bleeding it off, make sure your hose clamps or nuts are tight, sometimes there's an o-ring where the hose is, check to see if yours has one, but you have to bleed the system thoroughly

My 1993 GMC truck does not have much clutch. Is there a way to adjust it or bleed the slave cylinder?

Hydraulic clutch will only go so far.No way that I know of to make it go farther .I guess you could try making a little extention to your rod end to make it longer.

it is very easy to replace the parts, bleeding the air is the real problem, u will need to buy a Mityvac brand vacuum clutch bleeding tool, with out it you will never get the air out of the system after the parts are replaced, also always replace the clutch master and the clutch slave at the same time.

I press my clutch and get no resistance and cant get into any gear? 2003 gmc sierra 8.1 4x4 2500hd 5 speed

Check fluid level in clutch master cylinder, if fluid is full then bleed clutch system.

If you still have no pedal resistance you will need a new master or slave cylinder for the clutch.

1995 gmc sierra clutch pressure problem

could be wrong here but sure sounds like its out of fluid at the "master cylinder" look near the brake master cylinder for a seperate little container for the clutch. bleeding is tricky because it is small and wants to run out of fluid quick. you have to keep adding each time you bleed. Hope I helped. Thanks

Clutch fan

no but that means that the clutch inside the fan is worn and it may soon seize up you need to replace,but it wont give out a code for something mechanical.
