Question about Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I have a 96 nissan maxima, manual transmission. I had periods where the clutch would stay on the ground, and I would have to stick my foot underneath to get it back up. This happenend only occassionally, but I decided to bleed it. Now the clutch has no pressure at all, no matter how much I bleed it. I have changed the slave and master cylinder, just to be safe, but still wasn't able to have a build-up of pressure. I bleed it from the slave, and then tried at the upper bleeder by the intake/filter box. The push rod on the slave bearely moves when pumping the clutch. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Please, I could use some experienced helpful infomation. Thanks. Apostle.

Slaves can be hard to bleed. If you didn't carefully bench bleed and prevent anything leaking out, there is another way to get a bubble out. What I do is put a big screwdriver between the clutch arm and the slave plunger. Get it so you can push the plunger into the slave cylinder. Then open and close the bleeder. Pump the plunger back and forth and then hold it in. Open the bleeder again and then close. Repeat this until you get the air out. Hope this works for you as it has for me in the past.

1996 nissan maxima clutch sticks to floor


yes, Briong the pedal up where it belongs, then open an fill your master cylider. Then go below and open the bleeder intil the fluid runs/drips steady and free of any bubbles. Do not pump the pedal. When only fluid comes out, tighten/close the bleeder and give it a try. Good Luck. If peal dives again, replace the master cylinder.
