4 cyl engines for 98 (different transmission from previous generation from what I'm told), the slave cylinder is internal, concentric and fixed around the input shaft. It is directly connected to the throw-out (release bearing). The V6 has an external slave cylinder; this, you bleed like any other brake or typical clutch hydraulic system (2 person process).

One good way to bleed and/or replace fluid for the 98 4 cyl (2.2 w/ manual trans) is to pump out fluid manually or with automatic hand pump and replace slowly. It is best to re-fill the system slowly in order to insure that you move the air out of the system from the bottom up. Too much at once can trap air near the slave cylinder or at bottom of master cylinder.

More Information:

Go to a Autozone and get a hand vacuum pump or go on line under clutch master cylinder,

My 98 S-10 does have a bleed valve, located just above the slave cylinder hose where it enters the transmission bell. Bleed it just like you would a brake cylinder. Pump it up until it is as firm as you can get it, crack the bleeder under the truck, allow the fluid to drain, THEN release the clutch pedal. Repeat the process until it is firm. Unlike a brake cylinder though a clutch pedal will never get rock hard. I have found that simply pumping the pedal for twenty times at five minute intervals for 30 minutes will typically self-bleed the clucth, without using the bleeder valve.

You can also gravity bleed the system. Slip a clear rubber hose that fits tight over the bleeder, put the other end of the hose into a clear container and open the valve. Leave the reservoir cap off and keep the reservoir full at all times. Do not let it go dry. Moniter the fluid coming out of the bleeder until you see no more bubbles. Tighten the bleeder and your done.

As i believe, from experience of owning one, 1984 is when the hydraulic clutch came into place. You shouldn't need to bleed the clutch on an 83' S10. Not unless its not the stock transmission.
