Try a clean and adjust on the rear shoes, because sometimes when they aren't properly adjusted they won't seem to work properly. Also there is a common "squishy" petal feeling after brake work on most all larger GM's around that year, wich I have run into several times. Try test driving it, and put a couple miles on it, That usualy helps.
Good luck!

Improved Bleeding Procedure for Hydraulic Clutch Release System

Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to add model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 01-07-31-002A (Section 07 - Transmission/Transaxle). This bulletin is being issued to inform dealers of an improved procedure to aid in the ease of bleeding the clutch hydraulic system for the above listed vehicles. This procedure can be used anytime air is introduced into the hydraulic system. Following this procedure may also reduce the number of unnecessary parts replaced for low clutch pedal reserve and high shift effort.
Verify that all the lines and fittings are dry and secure.
Clean the dirt and grease from the reservoir cap in order to ensure that no foreign substances enter the system.
Remove the reservoir cap.
Fill the reservoir to the proper level with the required fluid.
Attach the J 43485 (Adapter) to the J 35555 (Mity Vac), or equivalent.
Brake fluid will deteriorate the rubber on J 43485. Use a clean shop cloth to wipe away the fluid after each use.
Place and hold the adapter on the reservoir filler neck to ensure a tight fit. In some cases, the adapter will fit into the reservoir opening.
Apply a vacuum of 51-68 kPa (15-20 hg) and remove the adapter.
Refill the reservoir to the proper level.
Repeat Steps 6 and 7.
If needed, refill the reservoir and continue to pull a vacuum until no more bubbles can be seen in the reservoir or until the fluid level no longer drops.
The vehicle will move if started in gear before the Actuator Cylinder is refilled and operational. Start the vehicle the first time in neutral to help prevent personal injury from vehicle movement and see if the transmission will shift easily into gear.
Pump the clutch pedal until firm (to refill actuator cylinder).
Add additional fluid if needed.
Test drive vehicle to ensure proper operation.


NOTE: The principal parts of the clutch system are the driving members, the driven member, and the hydraulic system. The clutch housing is part of the manual transaxle assembly.

Driving Members
The driving members consist of two flat surfaces machined to a smooth finish. One of these is the rear face of the engine flywheel, and the other is the front face of the clutch cover assembly.

Driven Members
The driven member is the clutch disc. The clutch disc is splined to the input shaft. The clutch disc slides on the splines to provide clutch disengagement and engagement.

The clutch disc is held in contact between the flywheel and the clutch cover assembly by the pressure of a diaphragm spring in the clutch cover assembly.

Hydraulic System
The clutch release system consists of a clutch master cylinder, remote reservoir, tubing and an clutch actuator cylinder assembly. The clutch master cylinder is mounted to the front of the dash and is controlled by a pushrod connected to the clutch pedal. The clutch actuator cylinder assembly is mounted inside the clutch housing. Tubing connects the clutch master cylinder to the clutch actuator cylinder assembly.

SOURCE: 1994 Cavalier -replaced master cylinder-no pressure to rear brake

The most common bleeding procedure is to bleed the ABS brake furthest from the master cylinder first, then bleed the other brake that shares the same hydraulic circuit (which may be the other rear brake on a rear-wheel drive car, or the opposite front brake on a front-wheel drive car or minivan). After these have been bled, you then bleed the other brake circuit starting with the furthest brake from the master cylinder.
Air can be very difficult to remove from an ABS modulator assembly because of all the nooks and crannies inside the unit. The modulator may have eight to 10, or more, ABS/traction control solenoid valves, plus various check valves and dead-end ports. Some ABS modulators have special bleed screws to help you vent the trapped air when bleeding the system. Others do not and require the use of a scan tool to cycle the ABS solenoids while you bleed the system. 1. To bleed the isolation valves in the modulator, there are two bleeder screws. Start with the one toward the engine. Turn the ignition on and apply light pressure on the brake pedal. Open the bleeder screw and allow the fluid to flow until clear. Close the screw and do the same at the second bleeder screw. 2. Depressurize the accumulator by pumping the pedal 40 times with the key off. Wait about two minutes for the brake fluid to de-aerate, then refill the fluid reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. 3. Now you can bleed the boost section. This is done by applying moderate pressure on the brake pedal and turning the ignition on for three seconds, then off. Repeat this a total of 10 times. Make sure the pedal feels firm when you have finished, and give the car a road test to make sure the brakes are working properly.

How do i bleed the clutch master cylinder with a pressure bleeder on a 2003 chevy cavalier?


On those models, the slave cylinder is IN the transmission bellhousing so you can't reach it directly, but usually there is a metal hose coming out of the casing with a bleeder screw on it. So you will just need to use that to bleed the clutch, either with a pump or with a helper pumping the clutch, just like you would bleed brakes.

I'm trying to bleed out the clutch on my 1998 Mazda 626. I am having trouble locating the area I need to press to bleed it. Is there a diagram on the website or somewhere showing where this is at? I know...


The bleed nipple will be located on the slave cylinder which is mounted on the side of the transmission. If you like , you can follow the hydraulic line down from the clutch master cylinder and it will go right to it. Also, if you fill the clutch master cylinder and simply pump the clutch pedal up and down with your hand, this system will eventually self-bleed and the pedal will firm up.

Bleed the clutch in my 95 cavalier


The bleeder screw is located on the transmission slave cylinder housing. (Follow the hose from the clutch master cylinder) This is not a bolt, but a bleeder screw that has a fluid passage through the center to allow fluid to exit during bleeding.
An assistant needs to pump the clutch, then hold the pedal to the floor. Open bleed screw, tighten and repeat. Good luck

Replaced master cylinder and cant get air to bleed out


If you have been bleeding it correctly(it is bled using same procedure as brakes just with the clutch pedal) you might need the clutch slave cylinder. It does take a good couple hours to bleed one of these using the conventional two person method so it could still need bleeding but if it is taking to long and your initial symptoms were brake fluid disappearing and you could not visually see the leak from a line or master cylinder then it is leaking from the clutch slave cylinder located in between the clutch and transmission. The transmission would have to be removed.

My clutch on my 1998 cavalier is loosing its pressure. When the car is driven for a while it gets kind of hard to shift and when i am at a light and push the clutch in its kind of hard to get in gear.


If it has a hydraylic clutch and not a cable then this could just need bleeding or a new slave and maybe a master cylinder this can be checked easily on the gearbox where the clutch lever is there is a rod that goes into the slave cylinder or if it is a cable then that will be there in staed of the slave cylinder, get someone to push the clutch pedal down then check the movment hold that down and make sure the clutch lever travels about 1"stays out.if it does not then theres a fault, you can bleed this of air and if that does not work then then there is a fault in either of the cylinders.If there is this movment in the clutch arm and it does hold out then there is a fault in the clutch cover,bearing or damaged folk which may mean removal of the gearbox.

2000 cavalier clutch pedle goes to floor when pushed and stays there, clutch not working no pressure


You are going to have to replace the master and slave cylinders for the hydraulic clutch, the seals have failed in the slave, but from past experience they should always been replaced as a pair.
