Brakes problem


at this point I suspect that it is as it appears not to be bleed the second 1/2 of the cylinder
You can get a book and follow the bleeding procedure as some GM product master cylinders require a switch,pin to be removed and a plug put in so that the pistons can move to allow the bleeding process
you could take it to a brake shop and ask what has to be done to get the master cylinder to bleed properly
getting a workshop manual would be a good place to start as bleeding brakes is not always simple unless you know how it all works

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.

you have to keep master cylinder topped up as you bleed brakes
start at the furthest wheel from master cylinder slow pumps on the pedal holding down as your companion opens open bleed nipple'if your doing it yourself open bleed screw and fit small tube over nipple and put tube into small container half filled with brake fluid and just pump pedal yourself goodluck

My clutch peddle stays down on my 2004 chevy cavalier


had it happen to my car too. went to advanced autoparts and got a new master cylinder for the clutch ( not brake) and installed it as well as a new clutch kit since i was in there. as a short term, i bleed my clutch to get it home and that provided about 2 or 3 shifts before it lost pressure again. if you can't rev match or are uncomfortable with it have it towed to someplace to do the work or ur house and you can do it

I depressed brake pedal with parking brake on... it went to the floor & brake warning light went on... brake fluid appears okay. 1996 cavalier


If there's no leaks ( check back of tires ) your master cylinder is by passing, replace master cylinder and bleed brake system to get all air out of new master cylinder. ( bench bleed master cylinder first ).
