Brakes very spongy after clutch have been changed


Since the reservoir is the same for both clutch and brakes, definitely it can be air in the lines. Have your brakes and clutch bleed for air or you can do it. Get yourself some fluid, transparent tubing, a clear glass jar and tools to blled both systems. Find yoursef a tutorial video online to understand better, but here is how it is done: Start from the most further away wheel. Get under the car and search for the brake bleeding nipple and connect one end of your tubing. Then place the other end inside the jar, to the bottom..
Open the nipple with the appropiate wrench and have someone pump the brake pedal four or five times and check for bubles in the line and jar.
Add fluid to the car container every four or five times. Do this unitl no more bubbles are seen inside the fubbing, and close the nipple.
Proceed to the next further away wheel and do the same. Keep going unitl all four wheels are completed, Then bleed the clutches slave cylinder at last in the same way. Always keep the fluid container filled with fluid, so no air can enter tue lines.
Good luck-

Where do I add clutch fluid to a 1995 volkswagen Jetta glx?


There are two 5 speed manual transmissions possible in your vehicle. One of them is controlled by a cable. (there is no fluid) For the other one, you would put the fluid in the clutch reservoir which would be mounted just above the clutch master cylinder in the engine compartment. The clutch master cylinder is directly in front (on the engine side of the firewall) of the clutch pedal.

NOTE: If you are having to add fluid to a hydraulic clutch, you have a leak in the system that needs to be fixed. You should never have to add fluid to the clutch reservoir.

Clutch suddenly has no resistance and car won't shift gears. Fluids were low, have put fluid in the reservoir but still doesn't work. How do you bleed a clutch line?


on the transmission there is a slave cylinder that works like a brake cylinder, when you apply pressure to the clutch pedal a rod inside the vehicle under the dash pushes into a clutch master cylinder, (almost like a brake master cylinder without the reservoir, as the clutch master cylinder works off the brake master cylinders reservoir) the plunger in the clutch master cylinder applies fluid pressure to the slave cylinder,(located down on the trans near the clutch fork assembly) which projects a piston rod into the clutch fork dis-engaging the clutch. To bleed the clutch slave cylinder locate the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder,break loose so it loosens and tightens easily. Check fluid in brake master cylinder reservoir,fill if needed, while bleeder on the slave cyl is closed have a helper push clutch pedal to floor and back 7-8 times, (At first the clutch might stay at the floor, just pull it up by hand or foot and continue) after several pumps with no rest time push pedal to the floor and hold down with foot pressure, at this time loosen the bleeder on slave untill fluid leaks out, watch for air bubbles, close bleeder and repeat untill there is no sign of air bubbles, (make sure to check fluid in the brake master cylinder and keep fill as needed, do not let fluid get less than 1/2 empty as it might **** air and you will have to start over) If this does not bring clutch to operate then you need to check if slave cylinder is reachig its full extension of push rod or not. If it is not then you will have to replace the clutch master cyl or the clutch slave cyl or both as seals are bad and wont hold pressure. Or you need to inspect the clutch fork,the throw-out bearing, or the pressure plate fingers and clutch plate for failure or broken bent parts. I hope it turns out to be a easy fix on that clutching thing.

I have a 1993 Mazda 626 LX five speed, and my clutch pedal will not go back up. I have pumped it like for 10 minutes, and I can not get into gear. Please help.


Have you checked the clutch master cylinder for fluid? First place I would look. If you don't know what it looks like, it will be next to the fire wall drivers side- looks like a brake master cylinder, but smaller. Just use plain brake fluid in it.

I have a 94TR magna 4cyl 5 speed manual clutch pedal problem


prob has little to no clutch fluid, to check this open the bonnet, in the engine bay next to the brake master cylinder there is a round clutch master cylinder, unscrew the cap and topp it up with brake fluid.
If the system has run dry you may need to bleed the system, if not completly empty should be able to pump it a few times and will come good.
If this is the case there is a leak somewhere...
