Master cylinder bleeding

Ive changed my slave cylinder and bled it cuz i had a leak in it.But my clutch pedal still feels weak, and when i press on the clutch and try to put it into first gear it wont go in i have to put it in second then it goes into first.The clutch pedal doesnt have a lot of pressure so i think i have to bleed the master cylinder.Is there a way to do that, or bleed it only through the slave?Thanks

Re: Master cylinder bleeding

Clutch lines are very tricky, make sure you have lots of fluid. A one man bleeder works well hear, I find it hard doing it the old way like with brakes, I was able to do it the old way but it took a while. And it was hard to get it perfect, no matter how much we bled the line, still seemed to feel spongy

Sounds like you don't really know what you are doing first you will need help. You will need someone to pump the clutch pedal. They will pump the pedal until they feel some pressure then ask them to hold it down then you loosen the bleeder valve at the slave cylinder to let the air out and tighten the valve back then the person inside will pump the pedal again until it has pressure then you will release the air and re tighten. Keep repeating until you have all the air out of the line. I have to do this soon as my slave cylinder is leaking too, but I am waiting for my stainless steel line to come in. Good luck bro.

Re: Master cylinder bleeding

"ROb" why does it sound like i dont know what im doing.I know how to bleed the slave cylinder and i did that.When im driving, the gears shift good and my fluid reservoir is always full, its just wont go in to the first gear when i let off the clutch and then press it again.Ill try to bleed the lines some more, but could it be that my master cylinder went out?

Re: Master cylinder bleeding

I just replaced my master cylinder and bled it for quite a while. In the mornings when it's cold outside I seem to have to pump it to get it to put the clutch in but after that it's fine. So that's to say that I'm only having this problem in 1st gear really.

Anyways if your master cylinder is the problem you will notice the fluid level getting low I would imagine. I've added a bit of fluid since the replacement. If it keeps up then I'm going to have to replace the slave as well I would imagine.

Re: Master cylinder bleeding

yea get someone to pump your clutch pedal while you have your hands on the slave cylinder and bleed it but your gonna have to use both hands an push in the slave cylinder, sounds like you still have a bunch of air in there dude.

Re: Master cylinder bleeding

I ended up replacing both the master and the slave. Works great now.
