    i found a very small leak and have bled out all of the old fluid. I then filled the resevoir with new fluid and pumped the clutch while slowy opening the bleeder valve and bubbles came up but the pressure never resumed.

  • bjb035 Sep 29, 2009

    Ok,how do I hold the pressure at the slave cylinder? Should this bring the pressure back to the clutch peddle?

  • bjb035 Sep 29, 2009

    ok thank you. if the pressure doenst resume the i have a bigger problem?

    if it lost pressure you have a leak or a bypass from a bad seal.

Down on the trans is the slave cylinder and it should have a bleeder valve on it. Make sure the clutch master cylinder is full and have someone pump the clutch pdeal then hold it down. Open the bleeder valve and then close it. Do this till you get a steady flow of fluid with no air bubbles.

    While some one pumps the pedal hold pressure at the slave cylinder against it pushing out. Then have the person hold the pedal down while you open the bleeder. Don't allow the pedal up till valve is closed and never run out of fluid. Both will cause air to be sucked in.

    I've always used a screw driver. You hold it so that you try to keep it in the free position not the depressed. By doing this while bleeding ti helps force the air out. If that does not work the slave or master cylinder are sucking air if there is no leaks.

    Correct. But remember it takes some time to bleed system, it is not a 5 minute job. Good Luck!!

1996 Isuzu hombre 2.2 manual trans is stuck in gear have removed the stick and put it in neutral and still stuck and stalls when clutch is let out

so , it seems the engine does start in gear, with clutch depressed.
or cranks , brakes off, and car does not move. with clutch depressed, if yes, then the clutch is not 100% seized.
we now know the trans is in neutral (could be siezed check its Gear lub levels?)

I can not decode, stuck in gear. elaborate that.
nor "
"still stuck"
the only clue here, is
"stalls when clutch is let out."

this last statement makes me presume you depressed the clutch
then turn the key to start, it started
and when you let the clutch out, the engine stalls
does it do that rear wheels (2wd mode) ? lift driving wheels off the ground.... (these proves engine not weak)
yes, transmission is sized.
no, then it is stuck in gear.

Bleeding the clutch

on the slave cylinder located to one side of the gear box you will see the line coming in from the resivoir and the bleed screw will be just above that

I have a 1996 Isuzu Hombre. I have had to bleed the clutch a few times lately. Today something gave in and I lost all pressure. No fluid leaking from slave cylinder area but the reservior was empty. There...

Hello buiskit: My name is Roger and I will help you. If the fluid runs down the firewall or leaks down on the floor board or on your foot. The problem should be the clutch master cylinder. However should the fluid leak at the bell housing area.Then the problem is the slave cylinder. To replace the slave cylinder you will need to pull the transmission in order to replace the slave cylinder. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

We are trying to figure out how to bleed a clutch on a 1998 Isuzu Hombre. Unfortunately we let the reservoir run dry so we added fluid but clutch still goes to the floor with no tension and gears are very...

the reservoir is dry because something is leaking. The system only has 3 parts, line, master and slave cylinder, so figure out which one has the leak, replace it and then begin the bleeding process. Otherwise you will be bleeding it forever. generally the bad one will be covered in fluid from the leak

Once you have the bad component replaced, fill the master cylinder. tie a long rope around the clutch pedal so the person pushing it down can pull it back up with his hand. this will be needed until the system pushes it back into place. pump, pump, pump and hold the pedal down while the person under the hood releases the slave bleeder and retightens it. this is done over and over until all the air is gone from the system. sometimes there are flat compression washers which connect the line to the slave, make sure you use new ones when you reassemble.

How do you bleed the clucth on a manual trans

bleed the clutch is similar to bleeding brakes,,make sure your clutch reservoir is full of fluid,locate the slave cylinder on the side of the transmission and locate the bleeder valve on it,,have some one pump the clutch pedal slowly 4-5 times and hold the pedal to the floor,then open the bleeder screw untill the stream of fluid about stops,close bleeder,repump clutch pedal again and reopen bleeder,,don this untill you get no more air and or you have a good clutch pedal,,keep watch of the fluid level so it doesnt run out...

Press clutch down truck still moves foward on a 98 isuzu hombre

If you've not done anything to your truck, check the Clutch master cylinder under the hood, there is a resivoir that should have brake fluid in it. It usually sits next to the Brake master cylinder & is a smaller unit. If nothing has been done to the system recently, and your fluid is full, either the Clutch Master Cyl. or the Clutch Slave Cy. mounted on the bellhousing of the trans. is defective, or has a leaking connection.

If leaking connection, tighten & bleed the system. Check under the clutch pedal on the floorboard for brake fluid, if you find it, the Clutch Master Cyl is the problem & will need ot be replaced. Otherwise, the Clutch Slave Cyl. will need to be replaced. System has to be bled after replacing either & the Clutch Master Cyl. must be bled before hooking up the lines to the Clutch Slave Cyl.

Good Luck

good luck.
