I have a 1993 Mazda Protege it is really hard to put in any of the gears while the engine is running but while engine is off it goes in all gears fine what would be the best quickest fix should I change...


Try bleeding first. The bleed port is at the right of the pic below. Here is the procedure: HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING

  1. Remove the rubber cap from the bleeder screw on the release cylinder.
  2. Place a bleeder tube over the end of the bleeder screw.
  3. Submerge the other end of the tube in a jar half filled with hydraulic brake fluid.
  4. Slowly pump the clutch pedal fully and allow it to return slowly, several times.
  5. While pressing the clutch pedal to the floor, loosen the bleeder screw until the fluid starts to run out. Then close the bleeder screw. Keep repeating this Step, while watching the hydraulic fluid in the jar. As soon as the air bubbles disappear, close the bleeder screw.
  6. During the bleeding procedure the reservoir must be kept at least 3 / 4 full.

How to bleed clutch 2007 compass


GRAVITY BLEEDING CLUTCH HYDRAULIC CIRCUIT

1. Verify fluid level in brake master cylinder. Top off with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary. Leave cap off.

2. Raise vehicle on hoist.

3. Remove bleed port protective cap and install suitable size and length of clear hose (4) to monitor and divert fluid into suitable container.

4. Open up the bleed circuit by turning the thumb screw (3) counter clockwise this will start the air purge and fluid fill process.

5. Lower vehicle, but only enough to gain access to and fill the brake master cylinder. NOTE: Do not allow clutch master cylinder to run dry while fluid exits bleed port.

6. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level while air is purged and fluid drains from bleed port. Continue this until no air bubbles are seen and a solid column of fluid exists.

7. Close hydraulic bleed circuit, remove drain hose and replace dust cap on bleed port.

8. From driver's seat, actuate clutch pedal 60-100 times.

9. Apply parking brake. Start engine and verify clutch operation and pedal feel. If pedal feels fine and clutch operates as designed, stop here. If pedal still feels spongy or clutch does not fully disengage, excessive air is still trapped within the system, most likely at the master cylinder.

10. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary.

POWER BLEEDING CLUTCH HYDRAULIC CIRCUIT

1. Remove reservoir cap and connect bleeder cap to reservoir. NOTE: Use Bleeder Cap/Modified reservoir cap adapter Snap-on #901-059 or equivalent.

2. Connect service filling machine to bleeder cap. NOTE: Use Service Filling Machine/Brake power bleeder Brake power bleeder or equivalent.

3. Service filling machine should be pressurized to at least 2.5 bar (36 PSI).

4. Remove dust cap from bleeder valve and connect the transparent bleeder hose to bleeder valve.

5. Place the other end of hose in the bleeder container to capture the used fluid. The end of the hose MUST be submerged in the DOT 3 brake fluid.

NOTE: Use Bleeder Container To capture hydraulic fluid and Transparent Bleeder Hose To route fluid to container.

6. Turn on the service filling machine.

7. Crack open the bleeder valve (3).

8. Allow fluid to flow out of bleed port until no more air bubbles can be seen in the transparent bleeder hose.

9. Once fluid is free of air bubbles; make 15 quick actuations between clutch pedal stop positions.

10. Close the bleeder valve and disconnect the service filling machine.

11. To remove remaining air, actuate pedal 10 times slowly between pedal stop positions.

12. Check clutch pedal to see if vehicle is properly bled.

13. If vehicle is not properly bled, repeat procedure.

14. Remove bleeder cap from reservoir and replace reservoir cap.

15. Disconnect transparent bleeder hose from bleeder valve and replace dust cap.

I need to bleed the hydraulic clutch,fluid container was dry when someone depressed the clutch. Now I have to puch clutch all the way in and reverse is nearly impossible because of the grinding.


The bleeder nipple is on the clutch slave cylinder on the bell housing. Fill the reservoir and have someone depress the clutch pedal, fit a bleeder pipe on the nipple and open the bleeder until the fluid stops flowing. Repeat this process until no more bubbles are seen in the bleeder tube. Be careful to not let the reservoir run empty or you will have to repeat the process.

The hydraulic clutch stopped working.It won't shift.There is no pressure on the clutch whne you push it down.


The clutch hydraulic system is very small. Check the resevoir is full. If empty fill. Try clutch. Still problem ? Bleed the clutch slave cylinder at the trans bleeder. You dont bleed this clutch like brakes pumping up several times. Have someone push clutch to the floor and hold it there, then you open and close bleeder while keeping pedal to the floor. Check the fluid level every time you open/close the bleeder as this system is so small and will empty quick.

Clutch slave cylinder how to bleed


HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING Do not use fluid which has been bled from a system to fill the reservoir as it may be aerated, have too much moisture content or possibly be contaminated. Clean the dirt and grease from the cap to ensure that no foreign substances enter the system. It is also important to maintain the fluid level in the clutch reservoir to the top step with hydraulic clutch fluid Hydraulic Clutch Fluid GM P/N 12345347 or equivalent.
  1. Attach a hose to the bleeder screw on the clutch actuator assembly and submerge the other end of the hose in a container of hydraulic clutch fluid.
  2. Depress the clutch pedal slowly and hold.
  3. Loosen the bleeder screw to purge air.
  4. Tighten the bleeder screw to 18 inch lbs. (2 Nm).
  5. Let up on the clutch pedal.
  6. Repeat Steps 2 through 5 until all air is purged from the system.
  7. Fill the reservoir to the top step with hydraulic clutch fluid.
  8. Repeat this bleeding procedure if there is a grinding noise during the clutch spin down procedure.

I press the clutch pedal all the way to the floor but it will not go into reverse without grinding really bad, once i am under way it shifts thru the gears just fine. any suggestions as to what might be...


I have the same problem accept going into first gear, hope someone can help. I have a hydraulic slave cylinder and I believe yours is mechanical. If yours has a hydraulic system than you can have your line bled out or look for the bleeder valve yourself and have some one press the clutch all the way down after you open the bleeder valve. The air should release out. Release the clutch pedal and and close the bleeder valve. If it's a mechanical system then you may have an adjustment on the actual linkage. You can google bleed clutch lines or mechanical adjustment on nissan clutch.

My clutch is not angaging need to see how can i bleed


Hydraulic Clutch System BLEEDING The clutch system can be bled using a pressure bleeder. Follow the instructions that come with the pressure bleeder for the proper pressure bleeding procedure. The maximum line pressure while pressure bleeding must not exceed 36 psi (248 kPa). NOTE: To bleed a clutch manually requires the assistance of a second person, a section of hose that is compatible with brake fluid (preferably clear) and fits the slave cylinder bleed screw snugly and a container to catch the fluid that is bled through the system. As brake hydraulic fluid easily absorbs moisture, always use fresh fluid when bleeding a hydraulic system.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. To bleed the system perform the following:
    1. Top off the hydraulic fluid reservoir using a fluid that meets the standards of the vehicle's hydraulic system.
    2. Open the clutch slave cylinder bleed screw and press the clutch pedal to the floor and hold the pedal down.
    3. Close the clutch slave cylinder bleed screw.
    4. Release the clutch pedal.
    5. Check the hydraulic fluid level and top off as necessary.
  3. Repeat the above steps until the discharged fluid is clean and no air bubbles appear during the bleeding process.

First Top up the fluid for the hydraulic clutch. This reservoir should be on the fire wall beside the brake master cylinder.

The Clutch slave cylinder is located on the side of the bell housing under the car. You can follow the hose or line from the mater cylinder to find it. There is a bleeder on the end of this cylinder. Open the bleeder at least a few turns and have someone watch the fluid in the master cylinder and just let the fluid run out until you get no air. If it will not self bleed as described above, have someone pump the clutch pedal to the floor and hold it there. Open the bleeder at the slave Cylinder until no more fluid or air comes out and close the bleeder. Tell the person holding the clutch down to slowly release the pedal, or pull it up from the floor. again, slowly. Repeat this process until you have no more air being expelled. Do not let the fluid level of the master cylinder drop below minimum. Note Brake fluid used in this hydraulic system will remove paint. Be careful.

Good Luck
