I have often found that the very action of bleeding the clutch causes the slave piston to move forward drawing any air away from the bleed nipple.
Try pushing the piston all the way to the back of the cylinder and holding it there in some way and if you can detach the slave from the gearbox, allow it to hang by the hydraulic pipe and this in it self will cause any air to rise to the rear part of the slave and hopefully out through the bleed nipple.
Because I did this job regularly on MG Midgets which gave you a 6" by 2" access hole at the bottom of the drivers side footwell to carryout this operation I eventually made up a tool from a piece of flat bar and a long bolt, I used the mounting holes of the slave and two nuts and bolts to hold the flat bar and the long bolt via a welded nut on the flat bar to push the piston back.
I feel your pain.

SOURCE: Bleeding clutch slave cylinder

i think youre doing the right thing. they are very stubborn to bleed because the hyd. line goes up high across back of engine before droppiing back down to slave cyl., trapping air. could try to gravity bleed by opening bleeder at slave, cap off of master cyl, full with fluid then it may start to come out after a bit. then try your process again. or can try to bleed at connections further up the line, working your way back to bleeder. hope this helps. be patient.

Wheres the slave cylinder located at? wen i press my pedal it stays at the floor.what could that be?


Hello Herman, I assume that you are referring to the clutch slave cylinder. Did you check the fluid in the clutch master cylinder? Fill the master cylinder and try it a few times. If it works better but not good enough, you may need to bleed the clutch system. The slave cylinder should bleed at or near the front on the side of the transmission.

What happens when a knock sensor isnt working ?


If the knock sensor isn't working it isn't a real problem IF the engine isn't knocking. The sensor detects the faint pinging that comes before engine knock and sends a signal to the ECM which then begins to ****** timing until no pinging is reported by the sensor. If you do have knock and the sensor isn't working you can severely damage your engine.

How do you know if it is your clutch, clutch linkage, or clutch slave cylinder is the cause of vehicle non performance?


confirm if you have fluid leak from master or slave cylinder of if you have damp valve.try to bleed as it is to confirm the fault. If fault does not resolved then check as some times the cause is the damp valve does not allow fluid to flow through to slave cylinder. If your clutch master cylinder is ok, and the slave cylinder as well,start the bleeding by the damp valve which is on the mid way of master and salave cylinders.Then beed the slave cylinder for good clutch.

Overheating


Check coolant level, fan and relays work fine, thermostat isn't stuck, water pump work correctly and temperature sensor isn't out of range.

Keep in touch.

Wont go into gear


Did any fluid come out? It has to have fluid reach the slave cylinder, and when bleed valve is open and clutch is pressed, fluid should squirt out. Open the valve and pump the clutch until fluid is forced down into the slave cylinder. Keep topping up the clutch master cylinder so it won't run dry.
Post back if still having problems. There is a tool at auto parts stores for pressure bleeding brake lines and clutch lines. It forces fluid into the lines by pressure. If nothing works, your clutch master cylinder may have failed. Take the line off at the slave cylinder and see if the master cylinder is working to push fluid through the line.

You definatly have water inside the car. Pull the carpet back in the front and rear checking for water leaks. The only way frost can develope inside a vehicle is the presents of moisture.
The other possibility is your HVAC drain is plugged and water has built up inside the heater motor area. Have the drain checked and cleaned.

Heater not getting hot but blower is working


Without more information, I can tell you that you have a problem with your heater core. Check coolant levels and make sure you aren't low on coolant. If that isn't an issue, make sure your heater core isn't bypassed. In Texas, I see them bypassed instead of repaired because it hardly ever gets cold here. You could also have a dirty heater core that isn't allowing the heat transfer. The only other thing it could be is an issue with the temperature blend door/actuator. If it isn't opening properly to allow the warm air from the heater core to enter the ventilation system, you won't get hot air.
