Try hooking up a vacuum pump at clutch cylinder fitting,  open  fitting , and pump down while continuing to  fill reservoir, when air bubbles stop flowing with fluid, tighten fitting

No clutch pedal

Did you try bleeding it?
The ones I am familiar with, the slave cylinder is bolted onto the side of the bell housing at the point where your clutch lever sticks out.

How to bleed clutch on 1993 saturn sl manual tranmission

Clutches can be a swine to bleed. The best way is to do it reversed. You need an irrigation syringe from a pharmacy and a bit of hose that will fit over the open bleeder on the clutch cylinder and the end of the syringe. Then you inject the fluid while someone else tells you to stop when the fluid level gets to the proper height in the reservoir up top. Close the bleeder and you're done. If you cannor organize these things, open the bleeder and put your finger over it with light pressure. Have someone pump the clutch pedal and hopefully you will feel a little pressure that you can let escape with every push. Some cars require several hundred strokes, I once counted 700 on a Saab. So the syringe thing is worth the trouble. If you do it the finger method, don't let the reservoir run out!

Where is bleed screw on master slave cylinder

I guess if you could decide which you are talking about, the master or the slave, it could be answered. masters do not have bleed screws, slaves do. slave cylinders at the back wheels have bleeders which are on the inside of the backing plate, slave cylinder in the front caliper has a bleeder which sticks out the top of the caliper. clutch slave is a horse of a different color in a saturn. may have to buy a whole new master/line/slave assembly.

How to bleed the clutch on a saturn 97

one way to bleed it is by pulling the piston like slave cylinder with the rod out of the transmission and by pushing the rod into the slave cylinder several times, make sure you have plenty of dot3 brake fluid in the clutch master slave before you do this. by pushing the rod into the slave cylinder it acts like doing a brake job it bleeds the air out into the clutch master slave cylinder and sucks in the break fluid getting rid of all air in the system. thats the only way to bleed those systems seeing as they are sealed systems

After bleeding the clutch in a 2000 Saturn, where do you put the fluid in?

is there a line you can follow from the clutch slave cylinder to the fire wall and does it go into the brake master cylinder? if so top up the brake master to the max level and no more

Need to know how to bleed it

There would be a bleed nipple on it. It would be located near the bellhousing.
Open nipple a little let fluod seep out until no bubbles in it. Make sure you top the fluid up and dont let it empty.

Need to know where slave cylinder nipple is

I just installed a new clutch master cylinder and was not able to bleed the system however; I continued to pump the clutch many, many, many times. Simply moving fluid and eventually I bagan to get a little pedal back. I then figured that if I parked the car on a downward slope the resivoir would be the tallest component and residual air may rise up ward. This is only a theory and I haven't proven its effectiveness yet. So far, only a little pedal.
