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

SOURCE: need to know how to bleed it

There would be a bleed nipple on it. It would be located near the bellhousing.
Open nipple a little let fluod seep out until no bubbles in it. Make sure you top the fluid up and dont let it empty.

SOURCE: bleed the clutch

No way to bleed the clutch system.You need to buy a clutch master/Slave assy from saturn.Comes completely full of fluid & ready to install.It has retainers to hold slave pin in place until fully installed.Once installed you push the pedal & you will hear a faint click which is the slave retainer breakaways relieving.No other way to bleed although aftermarket parts house will sell you individual pieces.hope this helps

How do I fill the slave unit of a hydraulic clutch 04 saturn


Fill the master, and bleed the slave, just like you bleed a brake system. Takes two people, and three are better.
Pump clutch. Hold down.
Open bleed valve on slave.
Close bleed valve on slave
add fluid to master.
repeat until no air comes out when you open bleed valve on slave.

Im not sure this is the problem with my car but i have a 97 saturn sl2.. i just replaced the clutchtransmission and a few other things.. The car ran fine after i found out how to gravity bleed the clutch.....


Sounds like it could be the master and slave hydraulic cylinders that control the clutch. If thats not it, it could be the cluch saftey switch is defective, it's located behind the cluch pedal in the interior. you can unplug it and bypass it and if your car starts without the clutch engaged then thats the problem

I just replaced my clutch and master clinder. and now my clutch pedal has no pressure. and how to bleed the line


The best way is by 'pressure bleeding'. Workshops have these as an every day tool, but you can do this by letting gravity do it for you. Fill the clutch resevoir right up, then open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder and let the fluid drip through until clear of all traces air, Close the bleed valve. Your clutch should work now. Do not touch the clutch pedal until the operation is completed.
