So if the master cylinder has gone bad and is leaking the black gunk then that is why my fluid level is low and the way to fix my problem (clutch to the floor, gears won't engage) is to install a new master cylinder? Anyone know the prices involved with this if it is the case? I doubt I can purchase and install one myself.

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

took me a good 7 hrs to replace both the master and slave cylinders today... also lost some paint in the engine bay because of the damn fluid

i am going to bleed the system here shortly but everything mounted back and this thread helped me do it!

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

hi guys, sorry for diggin this up. i gave my car to honda for a service, and when i got it back the clutch was dropped to the floor, i pulled it back up and gave a couple of pumps and it was ok. now every 2 or 3 weeks my clutch drops to the floor, and when i pull it back up and pump a few times it'll be ok. checked the reservoir and the fluid was above the max line and it was very dark. its at the same level when i bought the car around 6 months ago.
i didnt have this problem before giving it to honda service center. could they have damaged my slave or master cylinders. or is it just air in the lines?

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

Alright I don't wanna start a new thread so here's my issue I Got a 91 lude si. B21a1 I believe . Problem is I can't get it into any gear while its running cars off will go into every gear just fine. Even with the clutch in it seems like the clutch wont completely disengage. Bought the car 6 months ago never had a problem just wondering if it could b the slave or if I need a new clutch

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

First off Thank you for this thread, it definitely helped me with replacing both my Master and Slave cylinder.

Second, I thought I would add this process for bleeding the clutch, because after it worked really well. I started off pumping the clutch 20 times then holding like it says in this thread, but it was taking forever. So I google'd a different way to do it, and came across this process. It's definitely 10 times faster, so I thought I would share.



1. Inspect and fill clutch master cylinder reservoir with appropriate hydraulic fluid. You will want to check this during the bleeding process making sure it doesn't run out or you will get air into the system again. Leave cap off of reservoir.

2. Have your friend camp in the drivers seat to push in and let out the clutch pedal when you tell him to.

3. During this procedure DO NOT allow your friend to "pump" the clutch pedal.

4. You will be opening and closing the bleed screw on the slave cylinder as instructed below. CAUTION: During this procedure protect your eyes from squirting brake fluid by using a small hose and a soda bottle. Brake fluid is nasty stuff so wear gloves.

5. (Helper) Press clutch pedal in fully and hold.

6. (You) Open the bleed screw to allow fluid to escape.

7. (You) Close bleed screw quickly.

8. (Helper) Release pedal completely

9. (You) Top off fluid in reservoir. Leave cap off of reservoir.

10. Repeat steps #5 - #9 no less than 10 times before going to #12 below. NO PUMPING!

11. Now you will want to purge the slave cylinder of any air bubbles that might be trapped inside of it.

12. Grab the clutch fork and push towards the slave cylinder pushing the rod all of the way into the slave cylinder as far as it will go AND HOLD it in.

13. (You) open bleed valve and command helper to push the clutch down slowly purging any air that was trapped in the slave cylinder

14. (Helper) As soon as the pedal hits the floor command your bleeder monkey to close the valve before you let the pedal return from the floor.

15. Repeat steps #6 - #9 one last time. (I ended up doing these steps a couple more times, then repeating steps #12-14 again. Followed by bleeding it regularly a couple more times till I felt the clutch was done.)


Hope this helps save some people time, instead of spending 30+ minutes on bleeding the slave.

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

Hi guys although this was a very helpful thread I am having a lot of trouble getting pressure back on my clutch pedal. I recently replaced my slave cylinder in my 2001 honda prelude base due to oil leaking from the boot and after replacing it with a brand new slave cylinder and bleeding it untill there was no more air coming out I closed the bleeding valve tight and proceeded to pump my clutch pedal for 10 min nothing happed , the clutch pedal was all the way at the floor. I checked for leaks by putting soap on all bolts I took off and nothing..I started to think it was a faulty slave cylinder but replaced it with the old one and same thing happed no pressure on the clutch pedal. The fluid level does go down a bit after the first five pumps but then nothing I tried pumping for long periods of time with no pressure on the pedal.at this moment I have no idea what it could be ..maybe the master cylinder is not pumpinumping enough pressure down the line ?? But it was working good before I removed the old slave cylinder. ..please help!!

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

An alternate method:
But first...make sure there are no leaks anywhere. Unless you have replaced your line with a solid, one piece type there are joints you probably don't see over the tranny. Brb w/a diagram...



Anyway, each joint needs to be torqued at a rate described in the service manual.

The method;
Takes 2 people. Have two bottles of fluid and a break bleeder catch cup.
Attach the bleeder cup to your bleeder screw outlet. Open outlet. But first, remove master cylinder lid, and pour in brake fluid. This is the gravity feed method. No pedal pumping at all.

You pour the bottle slowly into the resevior as it flows through the straw and into the bleeder cup air will be visible in bubbles. When cup is nearly full, close bleeder screw. Do this until bottle 1 is all the way empty. Refill bottle 1 from the bleeder cup as need be. If you need more, begin using bottle 2. Repeat several times to make sure all air bubbles are gone. Takes about 30 minutes.

At some point all air will be gone. When that is the case you have the clutch fork pushed towards the passenger side. Keep bleeder screw closed. Pour fluid into resevior to refill to full. Close resevior lid, and release the fork.
You now have an air free line and by filling the system with the fork engaged, releasing the fork puts a bit of back pressure into the system causing the clutch to feel a bit stiffer.

You may have a resevior cap letting in air, but if the system is full, and you pump, and the resevior loses fluid, sooner or later you'll see fluid....somewhere.

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

I have checked on the bottom of the car nd I dont see any fluid leaking.the problem is that for some reason the clutch cant build pressure on a little and then stops no fluid gets drained from the reservoir ..im changing the master clutch cylinder and see if thats the problem

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

Well I replaced the clutch Master cylinder and still im not getting any pressure on the clutch pedal. I rechecked for leaks and nothing is leaking..I have done this before to other hondas but no problems like this ever happened ..could it be that since its a 2001 it might have a sensor or somthing? I took off the battery and one of the fans to get better access to the slave cylinder could that be the problem? ? Im just out of ideasany help would be appreciated thanks

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

How exactly are you bleeding it?

The soft line on the damper tends to swell over time and cause a lack of pressure

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

I fill up the reservoir leave it with the cap off and bleeding valve closed tight pump the pedal fast also tried pumping really slow about 10 15 times then hold the pedal down and open the valve then close it and pump the pedal again until a stream of liquid comes out .after that I kepp pumping and pumping hoping I get pressure checked for leaks replaced both slave and master clutch cylinder only other thing I unbolted was the metal line that conects to slave cylinder no leaking there also checked underneath the car and nothing there

The good thing is that it appears that you don't have any leaks...

BUT...

It also sounds like you didn't do step 10, which I put in RED above. It is going to take quite a few pumps to get the fluid all the way down to the Slave cylinder. (And a few more to get all of the air out) I read that it's something like 20 evolutions, but I bet it is more like 30 or so. By your description, it appears that you are doing this by yourself, or I missed where you said you had a helper. If you haven't had help, get some help. If they are able to brush their teeth, then they will be able to help.

RE-READ the instructions above and try it again. As long as you DON'T have a leak, you WILL EVENTUALLY get the clutch system bled.

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

I will try again and do more revolutions I usually stop at about 5 revolutions because I see a clear stream of water coming out with no bubbles but yea thanks for the advise I will get back if it worked

Just to clear things up... I KNOW you meant "Clutch Fluid" and NOT "WATER", RIGHT?! I just have to be sure...

When I replaced almost all the parts in my Clutch Hydraulic System and was bleeding it, air bubbles kept coming out of the Slave Clutch Cylinder bleeder screw. I was keeping the fluid in the reservoir above the low level mark, All my lines were tight, and I had just installed a new hose... So I knew the issue wasn't there.

What I found out was that the rubber hose from the Reservoir to the Clutch Master Cylinder was "gummy" and allowing air to seep into the lines as I was pumping to bleed the system.

So I replaced that hose and put more secure clamps on there and Voila! After pumping another (est) 20 times, I got a solid flow of Clutch Fluid with no bubbles and a nice, firm pedal once the bleeder screw was closed. That was a year ago. Still no leaks, No fluid used, and still a nice firm pedal.

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

Yes I ment break fluid not water sorry..and yes I repeated the whole pumping and bleeding process possibly more than 50 time trying new methods of bleeding while still keeping reservoir fluid above level and after a whole break fluid container was empty I gave up still no pressure on the pedal whatsoever .Really upsetting knowing it was just a 20 min job ended up being so complicated ..it could possibly be the black rubber hose and new clamps so I will give that a try

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

You should enlist some help while bleeding it. Or if you do this/plan to more in the future - purchase a vacuum bleeder. Great results with a mightvac and bleeder attachment!

I recently worked on a friends 'lude - had the same issue with fluid bleeding out but pedal just never felt right. Ended up being the rubber line as I mentioned before. Replaced the entire line with a braided one. Wasn't in the plans originally - but I recommend a braided line on every clutch job/bleeding i do from now on lol.

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

Well as it turns out after having to pay two mechanics 150 they found that a rubber hose and a metal line were bent and the ruber hose had been rubbing against somthing wich caused it to let out break fluid and air got a hose kit for 25$ and its all working properly now

Re: No more CLUTCH PROBLEM threads!!!

Have read all the threads in here, but never heard a word about reverse bleeding. Might be because I am from the old school. Sure can take a lot of the headaches of clutch bleeding away though. Bleed up from the slave to the master works so slick.....

I read this thread from top to bottom. Maybe it is beacause I am from the old school, but I never heard mention of reverse bleeding. For all of the people that have pumped the pedal for hours and still never got any pressure. This is for you. Not saying this will work in all situations but if you replaced master and slave cylinders and are still having no luck getting a good clutch pedal feel. Try reverse bleeding. Try bleeding from the slave up to the master. After all doesn't it make sense, the bubbles want to go to the highest point. Worked great for me. Less than 10 pumps and I had a full pedal.
