I just replaced my clutch master cylinder and after i bleed it, there is still air getting in the line. Do i have to rep;ace the slave cylinder as well?


Hi Mary:
Unless the slave cylinder has failed, there should be no need to replace it.
As long as you have adequate fluid in the master cylinder reservoir, air should not be getting into the lines.
Have you bled all of the lines at the slave cylinders?
Can you explain why you believe that air is getting into the system? It could be a matter of adjustment.
Please reply as a comment in this thread.

Why is my clutch feel like there is air in the line it seems to have alot of play.


Air in the hydraulic clutch release System. The system consists of the clutch master cylinder, line, hose and clutch slave cylinder. Check the level at the clutch master cylinder. The fill reservoir is along the firewall on drivers side with a black cap. It uses DOT 3 brake fluid. Add fluid if low and pump pedal. If low you have a leak. If full you have a master cylinder internal seal bad so you have to have the master cylinder for the clutch replaced.

How to bleed 2004 pontiac sunfire slave cylinder


There are 2 ways to bleed the clutch slave cylinder on any vehcile really. First way is to have a person in the car pump the clutch pedal several times and hold it to the floor. While the person holds the clutch pedal to the floor a second person opens the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder itself, once the air/fluid has stopped running out of the bleeder screw, tighten it again and have the first person in the car pull up on clutch pedal from the floor (because it will stick down after openening and tightening the bleeder screw) and then repeat that process until the clutch pedal feels good and hard. Make sure you fill the fluid in the clutch master resevoir each time you open and close the bleeder screw so you don't get new air coming through the system from emptying the resevoir.

Now, the second way is the way I prefer because you only need 1 person, however you do need more tools. Fill the clutch master resevoir will the proper fluid then find a cap that fits the resevoir or buy a replacement cap and drill a small 1/8" hole in the middle of the cap then use a vacuum pump and insert a rubber adapter (from the vacuum pump kit) into the 1/8th hole you have drilled. you'll want to hook up your vacuum pump with an inline catch tank that usually comes with the kit you purchase. Then just pump the tool creating a vacuum in the master resevoir, this will reverse bleed all the air up into the resevoir. as you see the fluid drop add more fluid and repeat this process until the fluid no longer drops. Check the clutch pedal for proper opperation and you're good to go!

I was driving my car down the road an i pushed the clutch in an it never can back up so i pulled it up an now i have like no clutch what could the problem be...


Look for a problem in the hydraulic clutch system. Sometimes the seals in the clutch master cylinder fail and won't push fluid through the line to the slave cylinder. Check if you even have fluid in the clutch fluid reservoir. Sometimes the slave cylinder on the transmission bell housing can also fail. Watch the clutch action at the clutch lever (where the slave cylinder will push the lever forward, if operating properly), while someone presses the clutch pedal. If you see no movement, one of your cylinders has failed, or no fluid is available, or the line is plugged, but that is very unlikely for a clutch line to plug up. If the clutch fluid ran dry, refill at the reservoir and bleed the clutch line, at the slave cylinder.

CLUTCH WONT WORK


There is a clutch master cylinder,a clutch slave cylinder,and the fluid.If you press on the clutch pedal and there is no pressure you lost the fluid,if either leak from the master or the slave even the hose line,A rule of thumb the master clutch cylinder and a slave are replaced as pair,

does your car have a hydraulic clutch

you can bleed some clutch master cylinders removing air in system check fluid level full then bleed master cylinder keeping an eye on fluid levels not to run system dry..

My 1999 pontiac keeps breaking the clutch master cylinder it wont keep the pressure. as soon as u hit the clutch u hear a pierce noise and open it up. and the mastercylinder is destroyed


try replacing both master and slave cylinders at the same time. when both are removed apply brake cleaner and shop air to high pressure line running between master and slave cylinders to clear any possible cloggs. If it happens again remove your transmission and inspect clutch, bearing and linkage in bell housing for broken/binding parts.

I have a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire that has problems shifting into gear. (manual trany). Have to force into 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and especially in reverse. Will grind going into reverse. Have to turn off...


Sounds like the clutch is going out. I would check the operation of the clutch slave cylinder. Also check the clutch master cylinder fluid level.

Clutch goes all the way to the floor without resitance on my daughters 2004 sunfire. there is fluid on the ground and when I checked fluid level it appeared to be empty


Examine carefully to locate exact point of leak. Could be the hydraulic line, a connection between line & slave cylinder or master cylinder, or a bad slave cylinder. Once you identify the point of leak, I can help you with repair info if needed.

2004 cavalier clutch pedal stays on floor,clutch not slipping. do i change clutch master cyl


Check for fluid leaks first along the line. Also check the mechanical linkage. Then try bleeding it. Changing the master cylinder is your last resort. That way you dont buy parts you don't need.
