All clutch slave cylinders have a bleed screw,one pipe in,the other hole is the bleed screw hole,should be tapered at the bottom,for the screw to deal against,also sits above the pipe,to let the air out

I have a 1994 Chevy C1500 how would i find a leak for the clutch


The clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall in front of the clutch pedal and has a solid plastic line (hose) that runs directly to the clutch slave cylinder which is located inside the bell housing of the transmission. Unless it has rubbed against something and developed a leak, which is very unlikely, the leak will be at the slave cylinder and drip from the front edge of the bell housing where it meets the engine. This is a common problem with older Chevy trucks and the best fix is to replace the entire hydraulic system with a pre-assembled unit available at most parts suppliers. These units come with the master cylinder, hydraulic line and slave cylinder with a new release bearing (throw-out bearing) and are pre-bled and full of fluid. Replacing just the slave cylinder is a major job and bleeding these systems have been known to drive people crazy. Replacing ALL of it aint much more work and saves your sanity not to mention all those dirty words.12_28_2012_1_54_36_am.png

My clutch pedal one day got all loose and wouldnt get tight then i pumped it 4 five min and then it would get tight it goes back and forth between tight and loose and when loose wont go in gear and when...


Sounds like the master or slave cylinder is not right. If it gets tight when pumping it up, that's a hydraulic issue with the rubber parts not sealing, or air in the system.

Good luck on this repair.

How do you change a clutch cable on 97 saturn sc1?


Impossible as it has a hydraulic clutch, and no it cannot be adjusted. It has a small master cylinder and a slave cylinder, just like a brake system. If one of those has failed, you buy a pre-bled replacement for the whole little system and bolt it in.

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

How do i get the slave cylinder out of the trans on a 95 saturn sc1


Unbolt the the two nuts that hold it onto the transmission. Then grab the slave cylinder and turn it counter clockwise and it should pop out. That is correct because holding it in the hole and turning it clockwise seats it back into the transmission.

Remember to remove the connection between the clutch pedal and the master cylinder or put a brick or something to hold the clutch pedal up or else removing the slave cylinder without the above note will ruin the hydraulics and allow air to get into this airless system.

I cant get pressure to my clutch pedal in my 1995 saturn sc2. i changed out the slave cylinder and the clutch. I tried bleeding the slave cylinder, and still no pressure, why?


You cannot bleed these clutch hydraulics. They are meant to be a pre-bled sealed unit that you buy. You should never replace just the slave or the master. Buy them both and replace them as one unit which is already bled from the factory. Otherwise you will experience what you are describing.

Make sure you install the slave cylinder (into the transmission hole) first and then the master cylinder (pedal side) next and do not hook up the pedal until everything is installed.

If you take the slave out with the pedal attached it will extend the rod and ruin the hydraulics rendering them useless.
