You may have a bad clutch master or a bad slave cyl. To bleed the system you need to find the bleeder screw under the truck where the slave cyl enters the bell housing. Make sure the master is full of fluid. Note-some reservoirs will have an rubber cup insert inside which will make it look full . If so take it out.
Open the bleeder at the slave cyl and watch as the fluid comes out to see if there is any air. After a while, close the bleeder and pump the clutch pedal to see if it is starting to work. If not, repeat opening the bleeder again etc. If you get a little pedal, then hold the pedal to the floor and have someone open the bleeder. Close the bleeder and repeat until you get a good pedal. If you have no success you may have a bad master that is not producing pressure.

CAN'T GET PEDAL WHEN BLEEDING CLUTCH 1995 CHEVY 1500


You need to put a pressure bleeder on the system and bleed the air from it. The pressure bleeder will force the air from the system and lines when you open the bleeder valve.

Replaced the clutch master cylinder in 2001 kia sephia but still not working. The fluid wont go to the cylinder even after bleeding what did I miss?


Hi Monique, As you have replaced the master cylinder, what is the condition of the slave cylinder? I wonder how you are bleeding the system. The procedure is as follows. Fill the reservoir and have a friend keep it full as the bleeding procedure is carried out. Pump the clutch pedal all the way to the floor and then release it to the upper end of its travel. do this until you feel pressure in the pedal and with the pedal pressed all the way to the floor have a friend open and then after two seconds close the bleeding nipple while you hold the pedal down. Once the nipple is closed repeat the action and the bleeding procedure. The nipple must only be opened and then closed while you hold the pedal to the floor. Repeat the procedure until the clutch action returns to normal. Regards John

Repair master clutch cylinder


Check your fluid level. If it is full, the clutch master cylinder is likely faulty. If it is empty, fill it and bleed the system, then check for leaks.

My 1997 chevy 1500 z71 brakes suddenly going all the way to the floor. Checked brake fluid and it was low. Could be wheel cylinder? Master cylinder? or ?


well, check the brake lines for leakage after adding brake fluid to the full mark. If the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor, it's likely there is a leak somewhere after the master cylinder. If the pedal gets hard after adding fluid, and pumping it several times with the car off, then the master cylinder is still ok.

If air has gotten into the master cylinder, it may have to be bled out on a bench, or using a scanner if that's the way your vehicle is.

Bleeding the Brake System (ABS) Auto Bleed Procedure NOTE: Perform a manual bleeding procedure. If the brake pedal height and firmness results are not achieved, perform the auto bleed procedure below.
NOTE: Perform this procedure when replacing the brake pressure modulator valve or electro-hydraulic control unit.
  1. Perform the manual brake bleeding procedure. Refer to Bleeding the Brake System (non-ABS).
  2. Check the master cylinder fluid level often to prevent running the system dry.
  3. Press the brake pedal firmly and run the Scan Tool Automated Bleed Procedure (for Gas engines) once, or the Function Test (for Diesel engines) four times. Make sure to release the brake pedal between each test.
  4. Perform the manual bleed procedure again. This should remove the remaining air from the brake system.
  5. Bleed the system as many times as needed to obtain the appropriate feel of the brake pedal.

My daughter's 1997 Camry V-6 - Clutch pedal will go to the floor and sometimes won't come back. Checked fluid in clutch reservoir - OK. No fluid leaking. Had her press the clutch pedal and everything...


try bleeding the clutch slave cylinder its just like bleeding brakes just follow the line from the clutch master cylinder where you checked the fluid to the slave cylinder and pump the clutch three times and hold it to the floor while someone loosens the relief valve you repeat until no air comes out and it is all fluid then you check you fluid level again to make sure it is full then if the problem continues it might be time for a clutch replacement
