Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire
Bleeder valves are used to extract air from hydraulic systems, such as brake and clutch actuators. The bleeder nut is always located high on the slave cylinder. There is one on each wheel of your car. For disk brakes, it's near the top of the brake caliper. For drum barkes, it's behind the wheel hub.
For a clutch, it's on the top of the transmission at the slave cylinder. To bleed, one person must depress the padal while another person opens and then closes the bleeder. The person in the car pumps up and then holds the pedal down, then tells the other person to open and then close the bleeder. This must be done repeatedly for each line that might have air in it until no air comes out during the bleed cycle. If air got in at the master cylinder, start bleeding at the slave furthest from the master cylinder (right rear) and work your way to the closest (left front). Brake fluid is corrosive, so use a catch pan and clean up afterwards.
