There should be a bleeder located on/near the slave. Fill the master with brake fluid which is what the hydraulic clutch uses. Raise vehicle place on stands. Have an assistant pump the clutch pedal and after 4 pumps, hold to floor. At this time you loosen the bleeder screw to release air/fluid mix. Tighen screw and now the assistant can pump up system again and repeat the procedure 4-5 times; that should do it. Always keep the fluid in master full as it will go down fast. Good luck.

Right above the slave cylinder there is a bleeder screw. Just unsrew it and have someone hold in the clutch to start the bleed.

There is no bleed screw on the 3.4 clutch. You have to unbolt the slave cylinder from the trans and drop it down so that it and the line are lower than the master cylinder, then pump the piston in/out to force any trapped air up to the master cylinder.

The same way you bleed brakes, but use the little bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. The same way you bleed brakes, but use the little bleeder valve on the slave cylinder.

The clutch can't be adjusted. It is an hydraulic clutch. The clutch pedal sends pressure from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder on the clutch. IF you are having trouble with it the thing to do is bleed the air out at the slave cylinder. Have an assistant pump the clutch and hold it to the floor. Then open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder to let the air out of the system. On the final bleed hold the clutch to the floor and close the bleed valve on the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder operates of the brake fluid reservoir. Make sure you keep this full of brake fluid as you bleed the clutch.

Fill your slave cylinder using a hypodermic syringe (won't take much) and install it. Before you tighten the connection to the slave cylinder, bleed the air out of the line by filling the reservoir and pumping the air out until it runs clear. After it runs clear, tighten the connection to the slave cylinder.

Sure, but you also need to get the air out of the lines and the master cylinder. Put the slave on, then bleed the clutch keeping a supply of brake fluid in the reservoir.

You don't. You add it to the master cylinder and bleed the brakes.

The bleed valve is located on the drivers side of the bell housing.

sounds like air in the system, to properly bleed the slave cylinder you must remove the mount screws and hold it so the bleed port is up

The clutch bleed valve on a 2.2 liter Chevy Ecotec engine is located on the slave cylinder. To find the slave cylinder remove the battery, as it is mounted underneath the battery tray.

I had to punch a hole in the diagram/plug then use a screw to stop the flow and bleed the slave through a pee hole in the port!

The clutch cylinder on a 1994 Acura Integra is bled by placing a tubing on the slave cylinder bleeder valve and placing the other end underneath brake fluid. Pump the clutch pedal several times and hold it down. Release the bleeder valve. Keep doing this process until bubbles no longer exit.

To bleed a clutch on a Nissan Stanza, you need to find the bleed-off valve, usually somewhere near the slave cylinder.

Bleed the clutch line that runs from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder utilizing the bleed valve on the slave cylinder.

Probably remove the transmissionm if its a internal slave, if external then its mounted on the outside of the tranny. The master clutch cylinder is located on the firewall. Bleed the system and pump the hell out of the clutch after installing the new slave. : On a 99 GST it is an external cylinder (2) 10mm bolts remove the line replace cylinder bleed system.

It is on top of the slave cylinder hope this helps

It is important to bleed a clutch master and slave cylinder to make sure all of the air is out of the lines. For a 1989 Chevy you would need to know model you had, and then find the repair manual for that specific vehicle.
