Try a manual bleed first, as it may achieve the same result without the hassle of pressure bleeding.
Fill the master cylinder resevoir, keep it topped up while cracking open the slave delivery line- wait for a steady dribble of fluid to come through - a couple of gentle pumps of the master cylinder will help the process.
Then move to the slave cylinder bleed nipple - crack it open and repeat the process above.
Once you get a bit of pedal pressure back, it's fairly straightforward to complete the bleed process.

Seems to me, whoever did the replacement should be responsible for making it right! don,t take "YOU NEED TO..."! they're the ones who should bleed it! did you have it done by a dealership or licensed mechanic? if so, and it was done recently, then they should fix it! if not recently, then they still should do something, because clutch systems shouldn't go bad that quickly!
their should be a master cylinder- similar to the brake master cylinder- under the hood on,or near the fire-wall. the brake master cylinder has 2 reservoirs, you should be able to see therm, and the fluid levels in each one-along with markings indicating maximum-minimum. your clutch master is similar- with only 1 reservoir- look at the fluid level- if it is low or empty, then somebody messed up! look at the driveway where it's parked, if you see a clear leakage, then there's something loose and leaking in your clutch system. someone screwed-up!! if it wasn't you, then who??!! get on their fannies until they fix it!!
good luck!

When you replace a slave or master cylinder you have to do a bleed of the master cylinder. It is called a bench bleed. I am sure there is a lot of air in the system.

the problem in not moving is that the master cylinder is still under pressure and is not releasing the clutch(slipping) With air still in the system you will grate 1st gear as the clutch will not disengage. The master cylinder probably has a blocked compensating port and so the fluid pumped up to activate the clutch is not flowing back to the reservoir. Because you have replaced the slave then it is probably time to replace the master as well

Clutch feels loose,no pressure. gears are stuck, shifter wont moveis it the clutch adjustment?


The Clutch Master Cylinder or the Clutch Slave Cylinder has a leak. From under the dashboard, located the Clutch Master Cyliner Boot and pry one side open. If hydraulic fluid drips out, the piston seal(s) in the cylinder are worn. You'll need to replace the cylinder.

Bought new clutch new slave new master still no pressure on pedal how do you bleed the clutch


Hydraulic clutch systems are renown for having airlocks in them once the fluid has drained out.
1.With the Master cylinder full have an assistant pump the clutch pedal acouple of times and keep it on the floor.
2. Release the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder to allow the air out and then tighten.
3. Assistant then allows pedal to come up.They may need to pull back pedal if it does not return by itself.
4.Repeat from #1 until no nore bubbles are seen coming out of the slave cylinder bleed nipple.
If you have a length of suitable size plastic tube that fits neatly over the the slave cylinder bleed nipple , the bubbles will be seen more clearly.
It could thae 8 to 10 pump sequences to clear the air lock. If the clutch still feels spongy, repeat the sequence after a couple of days driving.

Clutch pedal goes to floor no preasure filled and bled slave cyl same result


Hi:
If you have bled the system, you are down to either having a bad clutch master cylinder, or a bad clutch slave cylinder. You could eliminate the slave cylinder by removing the line and capping it off, and if you have a firm pressure on the clutch pedal ( don;'t try to push it down, just check for pressure!) then your slave cylinder is bad. If you cap off the line, and bleed the system, and the pedal still has no pressure, then your clutch master cylinder is bad!

I have changed the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder, but still don't have pedal, we have bleed the lines and checked for leaks, no leaks were found. The new slave cylinder doesn't seem to be...


Thn the problem is the clutch master cylinder, it should build up pressure, ok try out this, remove the pipe which is going to the slave cylinder either from the clutch master cylinder or at the clutch slave cylinder and get someone to pump the pedal while you block the pipe and see if there is fluid thrown out with pressure.If there is pressure there thn fit back the pipe and refill the reserviour wth brake fluid and open the bleeding nipple at the slave cylinder let some fluid pour out and tighten it and thn pump the pedal and retry bleeding.
If there is no pressure at the pipe thn its the clutch master cylinder.
Hope this helps!
