How do you bleed the hydraulic clutch system on a 2001 PT cruiser?

You would bleed a clutch just like you would bleed brakes. Pump

the pedal and then open the bleeder valve. Usually the bleeder

valve is located on the slave cylinder. I'm not sure if the PT's

have a bleeder, in which case you'd need to replace the clutch

slave cylinder. They usually come with the reservoir and it's

usually filled. They basically aren't serviceable anymore. You just

replace them.

ANSWER

IF THERE IS NO LEAKS ON THE SYSTEM,VACUUM BLEEDER IS THE KEY

IS TRUE THEY SAY,IF THERE IS NO LEAKS AND ALL INSTALLED,PRESS THE

MASTER CYLINDER BYY HAND JUST TO GET FLUID INTO THE SYSTEM ONCE THE

MASTER RESERVOIR IS EMPTY REFILL ,THEN REMOVE THE SLAVE CYLINDER

AND DISENGAGE FROM THE FORK THAT IT IS FREE THEN VACUUM BLEED FROM

THE TOP NOT BOTTOM THE GOOD THING ABOUT IT IS NO PRESSURE INVOLVE

LIKE THE OLD SCHOOL STYLE,MAKE SURE WHEN YOU BLEED IT THE VACUUM

PUMP RESERVOIR SHOULD BE FULL THAT SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH BLEEDING

ON THE SYSTEM
