SOURCE: replaced clutch slave cylinder blew

Could be a couple of different things.
1) your clutch master has a plugged pressure bypass, and it is sending excessive pressure to the slave and blowing it out.
2) The clutch throw out arm is bound, and will not allow the slave to compress it.
3) The replacement slave was defective.

What was the reason for replacing the slave in the first place?

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

If not obvious, slightly loosen supply line. Remember, air rises, so bleed at master also.

Throw out bearing stuck in miata mx5

Hi, The throw out bearing should not have been affected with anything that you have described.
Quick note about bleeding: Bench bleed the master cylinder, then never let it run dry.
Anyways, you seem to have too many things happening at once. I worry about the clutch itself. When they wear, travels of things line throwout bearings become excessive.
If by stuck you mean beyond fully extended, certainly a clutch.
If by stuck you mean it is released and will not engage, maybe not a clutch...Make sense?
Essentially, you need the clutch to work correctly, sometimes you just gotta rip it apart and redo it.

Alright, I have a 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata. I've recently had a lot of difficult shifting into gears while driving. I have to pump the clutch a few times before being able to get into gear. It's definitely...

You bleed the brakes afterward. If you but a Hayne's Manual for your specific car, it will give you detailed instructions on how to change them. It will show step by step procedures. Also, if you ask an expert, they can give you step by step procedures until the job is done properly. Sorry I couldn't help more.

Shifter works when car is off, start car and then shifter won't go in gear. if i start vehicle in first with clutch pedal to floor, car starts going forward. mazda miata mx-5 just put new slave cylinder in...

The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

Clutch is engaging more quickly than usual. Engages almost immediately when raised from floor. Pedal feels softer than normal.

Yes you are correct its to much free travel to start with as it sounds like you have to get the master or slave cylinder rebuilt with new rubber kit as its either loosing pressure going down or air getting in as you put pressure on it.
So take off the slave and master cylinders and have then honed out and new kits replaced and you should
be ok to bleed and drive ..

Car shifts when not running, however once started gears won't shift....

Clutch isn't being released when pedel is pressed in. you need to either bleed the clutch, or adjust the clutch.You may have a pitted slave cylender. this means that fluid is passing around the piston in the slave cylender. if so you need to rebuild or replace the slave cylender. there may be other reasons too but these are some of the most common reasons
