Question about 1983 GMC S-15 Pickup

1 Answer

Bleeding the clutch will require 2 people , one has to bee pumping the peddle in the car and then holding it to the floor , and they must not let go until the person under the car tells them to pump again , the lever arm on the gearbox that the cable is attached , you will notice there is a slave cylinder just like the brake one but smaller , you need to crack the nipple on this and release air an fluid , several times , but you may need a small crow bar or big heavy duty screw driver to release clutch each time , then then the person in the car will have to pump and hold , you may assist by returning the clutch arm manual , give 3 - 4 pumps then bleed again , don't let any air into sytem or you will need to start over again . i used to hate doing this as it is akward work , but bleeding the system may be a help , also your cable will need adjusting , you will need strengh to hold that lever arm back whislt you make adjustments to that cable .. i hope you understand all this ..

    You can fill the clutch master and open the bleeder on the slave.... untill it flows cleaen and clear out... ( may require refilling the master ) ...and maybe do a pump between fills... if you dont have anyone to help...

    if piston in slave cylinder goes back to far then you may find it passes the point in to which you may not get piston forward , i have always done it this way , this was the way i was shown when i was little..

Trying to bleed clutch on 92 ford f150. Have done gravity bleed and everything eles. Get relly good peddel until i start truck and then the peddle is gone till i shut truck back off.


bleeding a clutch is a 2 person or pressure bleed job
have a mate pump the clutch pedal the hold it down while you open the bleeder nipple
close the nipple and repeat the pump action
hold down and open the bleed nipple
repeat the operation until you have a solid pedal and no air coming out
keep an eye on the fluid level in the reservoir

yes you have to bleed the slave cylinder at the clutch-look around for wettness due to a leak while you bleed it- start by cheking the fluid level and keep full while bleeding-you will need 2 people to bleed-one to pump it up,hold it down then another underneath to open the bleeder-only open for a short time,then close and pump up again-should only take like 3 times-don't let the peddle up while bleeder is open and don't let the resivour run out of fluid or you'll just pump more air into system- cheers Denny

How do i bleed clutch on 2000 trans am ws6 ram air


I\'m assuming this is the one with the 5.7L LS1 V8. Ok, bleeding the clutch is real no different than bleeding your brakes. Locate our slave cylinder.(Not the reservoir) In most cases, it\'s best to start with a gravity bleeding. Make sure the reservoir is full, loosen the bleeder on the slave cylinder, until you have a steady stream coming out. Then tighten the bleeder, and check the peddle.SUCKAUTION**** MAKE SURE THE BLEEDER VALVE IS TIGHTENED AND CAP IS ON THE RESERVOIR BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE CLUTCH PEDDLE!!! AS MISSING THIS STEP WILL **** UP AIR INTO THE LINE.Step 2, have a friend sit inside the car, and continuously pump the clutch(like bleeding brakes) about 10 pumps should do it. Have friend hold the peddle to the floor and announce that it is to the floor. ***They must hold the peddle to the floor*****while they are holding the peddle, loosen the bleeder valve until fluid comes out. repeat process until no micro bubbles come out, just clean fluid. Finally, remember to top off your fluids after bleeding, as you will naturally loose some in the process. Hope this helps. ^^

How do i bleed the brakes on my 1984 ford mustang never done it before


same as any nother car. take off mastercylinder cap. get a helper set in the drivers seat. apply pressure to the brake peddle. with a box or tube wrench break the fluid *** on the top of the calliper/back of drum loose. foot pressure on peddle should push it to the floor -hold it on the floor! tighten the *** on the caliper/drum tight-ish. not over tight. then let peddle up off floor. pump till you get resistance/tighteness. hold pressure on peddle, loosen *** again and peddle will go to floor again tighten ***, lift up peddle pump for pressure. repeat untill all air is out of line/ or fluid runs out clear. never let the master cylinder get low on fluid. have plenty on hand. repeat for all 4 tires.

You need to replace the clutch slave.....Ii recently did mine, after the installation it was stuck too.......the way I fix it was I had a friend pumping the clutch by hand while I bleed it under the car, it took about 15-20 minutes before it got hard again.
Good luck!

are you sure that no other part is not leaking, , how do you bleed the system , first you fill the clutch resover with fluid . you then open the clutch cylinder bleeding screw . wait a few minst for fluid to run out , then lock it off, have an assistance to pump the clutch and press down and hold it there , then you open the bleeding screw and lock off back before the assistance could relace the clutch peddle , do that a few time till all the air come out let me konw what happen

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.
