How do you drain the clutch fluid reservoir on a 1988 Ford F150 pickup?

You don't, per se, drain it. First, locate the air bleeder screw on the slave cylinder and crack it loose, then snug it back down just enough to not leak.

Then, with a helper, bleed the old fluid out and add new fluid as the level in the master cylinder goes down.

When you have clean fluid coming thru the bleeder screw, make sure there isn't any air in the system and tighten the bleeder screw.

Make sure, as you perform the bleeding process to not let the cylinder run out of fluid.

I have a 94 dodge stealth and when u press the clutch it just stays on the floor. I have replaced both the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder but it has fixed the problem yet.

  • Okie dokie,,,they have a really hard bleed success rate.. you can do it by your self ...follow my steps...
  • make sure the pedal is off the floor in the up position
  • use the 10mm unscrew the bleeder screw on the slave cyl about 2 full revoloutions
  • pour fluid in the clutch res start to look down watch it come out the bleeder screw, wait a few seconds and tighten the screw.
  • keep filling the can be messy then put the top cap on the resvoir snug...
  • now you bleed, untighten the bleeder screw a 1/4 turn then go push on your clutch pedal, it if does not go down loosen another 1/4 turn...
  • if the pedal hits the floor>>>>tighten the bleeder screw first then pick-up the peadal...
  • make sure the resevoir is half full ....
  • okay loosen the bleeder screw 1/4 to 1/3 turn again, push the peadal to the floor... let it go all the way down.
  • then go tighten the bleeder screw , and pick up the pedal....
  • keep an eye on your resevoir ...
  • note if you ever remove the clutch cap to fill you must bleed the system..the cap does not hold pressure but it does provide a suction...!!!

Clutch will not depress

the bleeder screw is located directly above supply hydraulic hose, should have a rubber cap on it, you should be able to loosen it and release the pressure inside, to bleed the system fill the resevoir and open the valve then press the clutch pedal down, while pedal is down close screw, repeat this process until all air is out

Soft clutch in 1994 F150

Sounds like like you may have air in the hydraulic system.Run some brake fluid through the system by opening the bleeder on the slave cylinder attached to the transmission. Have a helper depress the clutch pedal until it touches the floorboard. Have him tell you so you can close the bleeder.Once the bleeder is closed have your helper push the clutch pedal several times pausing 5 seconds between each push. Keep an eye on the fluid resovoir for the clutch and fill as needed. Do this untill you either remove all the bubbles or the clutch feels good again. It can take a lot of time to move the air down the pipe so be prepared.
