Clutch problem

My clutch seems to have no pressure??????? I replaced it about a month ago. When i replaced it, my uncle told me it was a bearing that was causing it to not catch as good. Now i don't grind or anything it jus feels like theres no pressure at all. Any suggestions?????

Re: Clutch problem

do you get alot of bouncing when changing gears? or do you feel not grinding but clicking?? Do you leave it in gear when you park it at night?? Have you checked to fluid level??

Re: Clutch problem

Sounds like you have air in the line and didn't properly bleed the clutch line. You will have to get someone in the car to pump the clutch pedal while you go up front and take a 10mm or is it an 8mm open end wrench and loosen the bleeder valve at the slave cylinder after the person inside the car pushes the clutch pedal to the floor then tighten the bleeder valve then ask them to pump the clutch pedal again then press it to the floor and hold it, turn the bleeder valve open just a bit to let air out again then tighten. Keep repeating these steps until you don't hear anymore air coming out or the bubbles of fluid stop and its a steady stream of fluid, also remember to keep topping off your fluid.

Re: Clutch problem

Rob hit it on the head. That's all you gotta do. If that doesn't fix it, check for leaks at the seals.
