WHERE CLUTCH PISTON MEETS ATTACH 1/4 CLEAR TUBING TO BLEEDER VALVE RUN HOSE UP TO A BOWL WITH 2" FLUID IN IT, HAVE SOMEONE PULL PEDAL OUT AND PUMP ON IT HOLDING PEDAL DOWN, RELEASE THE VALVE AND CLOSE IT, HAVE THE PERSON PULL OUT ON THE PEDAL AND PRESS IT DOWN AGAIN OPEN VALVE AND CLOSE IT , EVENTUALLY IT WILL BUILD PRESSURE AND GET ALL OF THAT PESKY AIR OUT OF THE SYSTEM, MAKE SURE THE MASTER CYLINDER DOESNT RUN OUT OF FLUID AND THAT THE TUBE DOESNT COME OUT OF THE BOWL OR YOU WILL HAVE TO START OVER, KEEP PUMPING UNTIL THE FLUID RUNS CLEAR WITH NO AIR BUBBLES THIS HAPPENED TO ME LAST WEEK AND NOW IM FIXED AND IT WORKED GREAT!

How do I change clutch fluid in a 97 Geo Prizm?


like all cars, with hyda. m/t clutch,
it is a stick right, all cars have clutch, old cars had a/t drain for clutch.
so my answer is for stick clutch M/C drain an fill.
so the cap tells you its DOT-3/4
so bleed it just like brakes, ever do those before.
if not watch any of 100s of youtube videos on that and clutch.
there are 5 ways to do it. (tools vary)
ill show 2man way
drain out 3/4 fluid from res. and fill to top with fresh)
i use a turkey baster, for 1buck.
you press pedal to floor.
person 2 opens bleed valve at the SLAVE>
then closes it as flow stops
person 2 yells, ok , repeat.
and repeats (all)until all old fluid is gone and fresh seen below.
that is it.

97 jeep Cherokee clutch will not depress to start the engine


Now you need to bleed the clutch at the clutch slave cylinder down on the transmission to restore the clutch.
Put a wrench on the bleed valve and open it, then lightly close it. Now have someone pump the clutch a couple of times to build pressure. Then while the clutch pedal is slowly pressed down open the bleed valve, then close valve as pedal gets to floor. Repeat this bleed process until a steady stream of brake fluid comes out the bleed valve. Then you should have a good clutch again.

What does it mean when the clutch petal goes all the way to the floor in my 2003 suzuki aerio


Your clutch fluid reservoir may need brake fluid-yes, it uses brake fluid as a hydraulic fluid. Check reservoir on the firewall. It will sit beside the brake master cylinder. The reservoir sits atop the clutch master cylinder.
If it was dry, the clutch may need bleeding down at the slave cylinder on the transmission housing-where the clutch fork sticks out of the transaxle.. Open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, and have someone slowly press clutch down. Keep bleeding until a steady stream of fluid comes out when clutch is pressed. Then close bleed valve, check clutch operation-pedal should have some pressure on it now.

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.

Clutch stays engaged and stays on the floor 97 Nissan Maxima


I'm going to need more information. Does the peddal feel the same? Do you have any weird vibrations? My first feeling is that your Throw out bearing is bad, in which case you will need to replace the clutch. Second is that your Hydraulic system on the clutch has a leak or is dry. let me know.
