Does the slave cylinder have a bleeder? it should. auto parts stores sell hand-operated vacuum pumps for bleeding brakes. i have used mine to pull fluid through clutch hydraulics to get enough pressure to commence the regular bleeding process. hope this helps.

SOURCE: changed clutch but unable to bleed the slave

Probably not. Bleeding clutch slave cylinders is tricky because you cant "pump it up". The master cylinder has no static valve so the best way to bleed the slave cyl. is to use gravity. Fill the master cylinder reservoir and open the bleed valve on the slave cyl. Allow fluid to drip into an open can until there's no trace of air. Close bleed valve and try clutch. If still no pedal, repeat the process. This is quite an acceptable procedure.

I changed the slave cylinder on my clutch of my TATA 207 and now I cant get any gears, It is stuck in reverse gear. the gears where perfect befor I chnnged the clutch slave cylinder ??


Either the new slave cylinder is faulty or you need to bleed it. Sounds like you aren't getting enough clutch release to get the gears to change. You cant hurt the gears by doing anything to the outside components of the tranny.

remove line from the side of clutch master cylinder two bolts or nuts on firewall inside vehicle is a pin on the upper side of clutch remove and pull old unit out bench bleed new master by filling and pressing in on the piston of the master cylinder. if you dont have a hose fitting dont bench bleed bleed it in vehicle( this method takes longer) install back in vehicle and hook it all back up torque bolts to 25 ft lbs then bleed the slve cylinder from under vehicle near back of motor just like bleeding brakes pump up hold and release the line pressure by opening valve on slave cylinder.

No need to change the slave cylinder, but bleed both and if you have low or no brakes then bleed the brakes too.

Have fluid in res. lines are free bleeder has fluid but can't get preasure on clutch arm


Clutches can be a pain, do you have fluid bleed out with no air bubbles coming out, if you cant get it to bleed it works best to raise the front of the car up with a jack or as high as you can get it within reason, doing this makes the slave cylinder the highest point therefore air will travel to the highest point making it easier to bleed and get all the air out. if you still cant get it to bleed after that try letting it gravity bleed for a few minutes and then try bleeding and if that dont work possible bad master cylinder. If this is a problem that developed and you have not replaced clutch slave cylinder the slave cylinder is probably the issue

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.

Im having difficulty in bleeding a cluch o a ford


clutch systems bleed just like brakes, if you have an external leak at the clutch master cylinder, then bleeding will be difficult, it should be replaced. I use a two person bleeding system, I fill the master, crack the bleeder screw open and have my 2nd push the clutch down and hold it, then I close the bleeder and tell my 2nd to release the pedal, repeat until no air is present.

Bleeding clutch slave cylinder


if you loosten the slave bleeder screw and push in the clutch pedal fluid should come out if not make sure someone holds down the pedal and tighten the screw then pump the clutch a few times and hold the pedal and open the screw if no fluid repeat a couple of times if still no fluid you need either a new master cylinder or just rebuild it( normally cheaper) and if you rebuild it make sure you flush all the lines of debris

The clutch on my car stuck to the floor. I check the reservoir was completely empty. I have a feeling the slave cylinder is filled with air. I'll need to get the schematics to see how to bleed the clutch.


Bleeding the clutch is similar to bleeding brakes. You'd pump the clutch pedal several times to get the pressure up, and then open the bleeder on the slave cylinder (mounted down on the transmission). Repeat and add fluid as needed until no air comes out.

Two things - first off, some cars have more than one bleed point (the Nissan 300ZX is one of those), so be sure there is only the slave cylinder to bleed. Second, if it went right to the floor, something failed - either the slave cylinder or the master cylinder. Changing the slave is relatively easy - usually two bolts and it comes off, you put on a new one, and bleed it as described above. Often the slave cylinder is less than $30, so it's worth it to try changing it if you can't get the pedal to come back off the floor on its own. A clutch master is significantly more expensive and more difficult to change, so start cheap and easy and replace the slave cylinder if you can't pump the pedal to get pressure built up for a bleed.
