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

1996 VW Golft GTI vr6 We've replaced the master cylinder and slave cylinder due to the clutch pedal not holding preasure. We then replaced the bearings on the rear rotors. We bled the clutch, and...

When you opened the bleeder screws to the rear brakes, did you completely remove the screws ? Might also want to perform a complete visual inspection of the brake lines from the rear to the front and master cylinder.
How are you performing the bleeding process ?

these are very hard to bleed, also check your fire wall for damage where the clutch master bolts up. another thing is take a good look at the clutch pedal asm, the frame sometimes wears and cracks so you loose a little pedal travel.another thing is a bad preasure plate,spring breaks on plate,

Where is the bleed valve for clutch on a 1991 jeep wrangler

1. Fill master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support vehicle. Attach bleeder hose to bleeder screw on bleed line of slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 (attached in link) . Place other end of hose in glass container 1/2 full of brake fluid. Loosen bleeder screw while holding bleeder screw fitting.

2. Have an assistant depress clutch pedal to the floor. Tighten bleeder screw and release clutch pedal. Repeat bleeding procedure until fluid entering container is free of bubbles. DO NOT allow reservoir to run out of fluid during bleeding. Refill clutch master cylinder reservoir.

CAUTION: DO NOT allow bleed line to bend or flex when loosening
bleeder screw.

Clutch reservoir is dry on my daughters 96 Eagle Talon the car will not go into any gear.How do I flush the reservoir?If I add oil could this solve the problem

Do not put oil in this system.It uses brake fluid in the reservoir.If the system doesn't have any fluid in it, there is a leak, and both the clutch master cyl and the clutch slave should be replaced. They both were used the same amount of times, and wear evenly. When you add fluid, the clutch master cyl compresses the fluid down the line/hose into the clutch slave cyl. This depresses the clutch fork/arm and disengages the clutch disc so the input shaft into the transmission stops moving, allowing the trans to be put into gear. LOOK FOR THE FLUID LEAKING TO ISOLATE THE PROBLEM. This is a closed system, and the fluid never gets used, unless there is a leak.

What does it mean by bleeder .I mean how to bleed the clutch slave cylinder ?

JUst open the clutch slave bleeder valve a little until drips. Let somebody push the clutch pedal. You will
observe the clutch fluid flow initially with bubbles. Stop pushing the clutch pedal upon observing solid flow of the clutch fluid, and close the bleeder valve fast and tight. Bleeding the fluid is releasing the air inside the fluid line going to the clutch master. This in effect gets your clutch good order.

Clutch bleeding

Try opening bleeder screw on slave cylinder and let it GRAVITY BLEED, just open clutch mater and fill with fluid and then open slave cylinder bleeder screw and let it gravity bleed( run out by itself) When it does close bleeder screw and you should get pressure.(make sure master doesn't run out of fluid during this preocess).If pedal not good enough bleed as usual. PUMP PEDAL ABOUT 6 time then hold down to the floor using wrench open slave bleed screw and close back up with pedal still being held DOWN. Repeat until fluid comes out with out air.However if all this doesn't work, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE CLUTCH MATER CYLINDER. Conatct if you need more help and Good Luck. Thanks for using FIX YA

Clutch problem

The bleeder screw or fitting is located either directly on the clutch master cylinder or it will look like a normal bleeder screw on the plastic hardline. with the line cracked open have somebody push the pedal down and hold. Tighten the plug and repeat. Also look under neath your dash, there is a bushing on the clutch pedal arm that car wear out. It should be white in color.
