Bleed clutch 1991 Isuzu

I just did a 93

This was the hardest task on a clutch that i have ever done!

1. first get someone to help you!

2. if this is the same as 93 you should have 2 bleed screws one on the line from the master cylinder (this is located well below the master by the subframe) and the other is right on the slave cylinder. 3. get your partner to pump the pedal (even if they have to pull it up from the floor) to build up some pressure,(crack the bleed screw till you get fluid from both) then have them hold the pedal to the floor while you open the master bleed screw.let all the air out then close the screw. repeat this process 3 or 4 times. ( make sure that your reservoir stays full!) 4. then do the same process on the slave cylinder bleed screw. 5.When you get to this point take a 2 hour break!(to let the air settle) 6.Do not pump this time just hold to the floor and bleed master not slave. as you do this process you should get more pedal pressure. We had to repeat this process sevreal times.


The 91 and 93 have different engines and I'm pretty sure different manual transmissions. Jack the front up and take off the skid plates under the trans so you can get to the bell housing. I don't remember if there is a bleed screw on the master cylinder or not, just look and see if you find one. I'd recommend getting a one man vacuum bleeder like what you'd use on brakes. Loosen the bleeder on the bell housing, and attach the bleeder hose and just start pumping until the air and any dirty fluid is removed. Make sure the resivor if full before you start. Or if you have a second person there, Just open the screw and have them push the clutch all the way down, close the screw and have them let off, keep doing this about ten times. You can also have them just push on the pedal before you open the screw, and make sure they do not let off the pedal before you have tightened the screw or air will go back in.

It is located under intake manifold towards the back. It is above the starter.

The clutch bleeding is similar to bleeding brakes. Although you must be sure the clutch cylinder is higher that the bleed fittings and if you can't get it to bleed you may have to purchase a tool at you local parts store that will force bleed the system. This will pull the air out of the system and pull the fluid in. Always be sure to keep the master clutch reservoir full at all times.

if the clutch is hydraulic operated, bleed the cluth if it is mechanical cluth, adjust the linkages
