How to bleed 2002 Saturn vue clutch Master Cylinder?
you have a common problem and will need another persons foot to push the pedal while you turn the bleeder. step 1 check the fluid and top off to the line. step 2 step on the pedal and hold it down. step 3 turn the bleeder and let the fluid come out and you should be getting some air. tighten then remove foot and repeat from 2. one person tell the other person when your done. if done three or four times check the fluid to make sure your not adding more air in which case you will have to repeat 2 alot more

Answer its accually easy, from inside the car, you need to squeeze under the dashboard. at the top of your clutch pedal there is a small metal clip holding the r…od for the clutch master cylinder. use a small flat blade screw driver to lift the tab on the clip, and slide it off. push the rod of the master cylinder off the clutch pedal and let the clutch pedal fall to the floor. from under the hood, reach down and grab the clutch master cylinder and twist to the left i believe... cant remember. the unit is held in just like a headlight bulb, just twist and pull. the slave clylinder is held in by two 13mm nuts at the transmission. remove the nuts, and same procedure, twist and pull. becarefull pulling the slave out because the rod that opperates the clutch fork can sometimes fall off and land inside the transmission.... not good. once you have it off, pull the entire assembly out of the vehicle. the clutch system must be replaced as an entire unit since there is no bleading procedure for saturn. the units came from the factory pre assembled, and pre-bleed.
You should go to a Saturn dealership. They will cut the keys on site and program the chip with your VIN #. Replacement keys cut at a hardware store, Walmart, etc…. won't work due to the chip located in the original key. I just got 2 made and they (the dealership) charged $7.50 per key. Answer Go any place that cuts keys, hardware store,walmart,auto parts store. They will use the keys you have to cut new one .
Have someone sit in the truck and pump the pedal 4-5 times slowly ( pushing the pedal all the way down and up each time ) and on the last pump have your buddy hold the pedal t…o the floor then you open the valve on the slave and let the fluid out ( dont let them release the pedal until you close the valve or you will suck air back in) do this this a few times until the pedal feels good. If you are alone and dont have someone to help you, you can just open the valve and let it GRAVITY BLEED. As we all know fluid is heavier than air so after awhile the fluid will push out the air in the system. Keep checking the reservoir as you dont want to run it dry.
Answer The master clutch cylinder is attached to the clutch pedal. When one depresses the pedal hydraulic fluid is forced from the master cylinder through the har…d line to the slave cylinder. The piston in the slave cylinder is driven against the clutch linkage thereby releasing the clutch.
Bleed the slave, not the master. Bench bleed the master, that's what those hoses are for with the instructions in the box your part came in. The same box need to retu…rn the core.
The alternator is located right below the Belt Tensioner (of course you ill need to know where that is as well). However, its on the passenger side, at the most rear, and most… lower point of the engine. I had to jack up the car, take off y wheel, and you can see it just past the wheel. It's very tricky to maneuver it out once you get the two bolts out to remove it. Have fun!!!!!
you can't do it yourself you need a spaecial comp program- go to craigs, look for auto lockmith (mobile) under services. Anyone that does newer chipped keys can do a reset… for you in about 5 mins for under 100.00 at your location. DO NOT go to dealer
After checking to be sure there are no leaks in the Clutch Hydraulic system. Complete ALL of the following steps before test driving the car: 1) Install a helper in the dr…ivers seat to push in and let out the clutch pedal on command. 2) Remove the cover from the Master Cylinder reservoir. 3) Top off fluid in the reservoir. 4) During the course of this procedure DO NOT allow the "helper" to "pump" the pedal. The "helper" is to depress and release the pedal on command only, DO NOT PUMP THE PEDAL. (See theory below) 5) You will be opening and closing the bleed screw on the slave cylinder as instructed below. CAUTION: During this procedure protect your eyes from squirting brake fluid. 6) (Helper) Press clutch pedal in fully and hold. 7) (You) Open the bleed screw to allow fluid to escape. 8) (You) Close bleed screw. 9) (Helper) Release pedal completely 10) (You) Top off fluid in reservoir. 11) Repeat steps #6 thru #10 no less than 5 times before going to #12 below. NO PUMPING! 12) You have now bled the Master Cylinder and the hydraulic line. YOU ARE NOT DONE YET!!!!! We must now bleed the Slave cylinder. (This is what the manual doesn't tell you) 13) With no further action to be done with the clutch pedal, you can no remove the "helper" from the drivers seat and have him (her/it) help you do the following. 14) After topping off the Master Cylinder, completely remove the bleed screw from the slave cylinder. 15) Have the "helper" stand at the ready with the bleed screw and the appropriate wrench for installing the bleed screw. 16) PROTECT YOUR EYES! 17) With the bleed screw removed. With both hands grab the push rod coming out of the slave cylinder and push it into the slave cylinder as far as it will go AND HOLD it in. 18) Your "helper" will now install and tighten the bleed screw while you hold the plunger in. 19) When bleed screw is tight release the rod and as it comes out guide it into the proper position on the clutch arm. 20) Top off the Reservoir and the job is complete.
without the use of a 'power bleeder' it takes two people. one on the clutch pedal and one below on the slave cylinder bleed screw. once the pedal i…s fully depressed, the screw is opened and then after brake fluid has ceased flowing from the screw's hole, it gets closed. the pedal must NOT be allowed to raise until bleed screw is seated. repeat until brake fluid stream is expelled with no sputtering caused by air in the line. it is a short run of hose so there should be only a couple of cycles to get air expelled. do watch the level in the reservoir as this procedure is done - if let to run dry, air will be admitted to the system.
No. Only the '07-'08 Aura, Outlook, Sky and the '06-'07 Relay use transponder chip keys
I was looking for it too and I couldn't find at any stores. If you want a professional repair manual then it's going to cost you a little. The price is around $150.
i have a 2003 Saturn vue and there is no dipstick for the transmission fluid. its a plug. you have to take you car to a shop and get them to check it... i know it sounds crazy…. but they usually have to put it on a lift to get to it.

you will need a clean piece off hose to fit over bleeder screw on slave cylinder.stick other end of hose in a clean jar of brake fluid.fill resivoir.open bleeder screw and hav…e some pump clutch pedel as you keep filling resivoir.do this untill no more bubbles come out hose in jar.if this does not work may have bad clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder.most likely slave cylinder is bad very rarely does master cylinder go bad.to ckeck slave cylinder just pull back rubber boot if you see fluid come out it is bad.

You need two people. One pumps and then holds down the clutch. While the other releases the air from the fluid line under the vehicle. The most common place to do this i…s the slave cylinder valve. Make sure you keep the master full of fluid and closed when bleeding or it can suck in air. Pump and hold down the clutch peddle while the other opens the valve to let out the air. Make sure you keep the clutch down until the valve is closed again or it will also suck air. Repeat this until there is no longer any air escaping when the valve is opened.
You can do it a few ways. One is called BENCH BLEEDING in which you would put the master cylinder in a vise and run a bleeding kit into the reservoir and pump the piston with …a screw driver until there are no more bubbles ( you will still have to follow the next step as well but this makes it go faster) THIS IS ONLY IF YOU ARE INSTALLING A NEW MASTER CYLINDER. The second way is the normally process in which you have someone sit in the car and pump the pedal 4-5 times ( pushing the pedal all the way down and up each time ) and on the last pump have your buddy hold the pedal to the floor then you open the valve on the slave cylinder and let the fluid out ( dont let them release the pedal until you close the valve or you will suck air back in) do this this a few times until the pedal feels good. If you are alone and dont have someone to help you, you can just open the valve on the slave cylinder and let it GRAVITY BLEED. As we all know fluid is heavier than air so after awhile the fluid will push out the air in the system. Keep checking the reservoir as you dont want to run it dry. This is also the same as when working on the brake system. ANSWER INSTALL THEM YOU DONT WANT TO PUSH THE PUMP FORWARD BACK FORWARD BACK WITH FLLUID ON THEY HAVE TO BE VIRGIN WITH NOTHING AND THEN BLEED GRAVITY OR VACUUM BLEED IT THE RESON FOR THAT IS BOTH WAYS YOUR NOT BEATING UP THE PUMPS,THEY WILL WORK AMAZING IF PREVENT FROM BEATING YOUR PUMPS.GRAVITY IS OK ,VACUUM BLEED IS A DEALER JOB WELL DONE,YOUR MAIN KEY IS YOU HAVE NO LEAKS BY MAKING SURE THEM FLUID PIPES ARE INSTALLED PROPERLY YOU HAVE TO TIGHTEN THEM OR CLIP VERY PROPERLY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU GET THEM RIGHT WITH NO LEAKS,THATS IT YOU JUST SAVE YOURSELF SOME BIG LABOR MONEY BUY YOURSELF AN IPOD OR SOMETHING,AND 1 MORE THING JUST TRY TO DO 1 GOOD BLEED,HOPE THIS HELPS
The starter on the 2002 Saturn vue is located on the front underside of the engine, follow the positive(red) cable from the battery and it should connect to the solenoid which… is part of the starter.
