    I'm 77 yrs old & not as limber as use to be, therefore any under the dash work is probably prohibitive.

    Transaxle went and we replaced transmission and transaxle, put new clutch and slave cylinder in. Bled lines according to directions, still no clutch. Used vacuum pump to bleed.

Did you check to make sure you used the right type of fluids. We just found out ours uses hydraulic clutch fluid and not brake or transmission fluid.

When i press the clutch pedal in and out slow it don't have no pressure but when i press it in and out fast the pressure will build up why i am having this problem?


You either need to rebuild or replace both the master and slave cylinder. When a rapid pump will compress the fluid as it should. A slow pump will allow fluid around the rubber plungers.

Having some problems getting into gears. sometimes it shifts fine, other times it does not want to go into gear. seems to be getting worse. if i turn the vehicle off, i can usually shift it into gear....


So the clutch isnt didengageing? Check the inside firewall is there fluid on the pole going into the cylender? if so the master cyl is bad, check the slave for leaks also, and yes there is a nipple down there to bleed it it gravity bleeds, so fill it up and open the bleeder untill no air comes out, BUT MAKE SHURE you dont let the fluid container run out or you will be starting over :)

I have a 2000 mazda 323 with a manual transmission. i have already change the clutch kit but the gear is still hard to shift


Check the hydraulic clutch operation. This is a clutch master cylinder with a reservoir on the firewall, and a clutch slave cylinder down on the bell housing of the transmission, with a steel tube running from the master to the slave cylinder. When clutch pedal is depressed, hydraulic fluid (brake fluid) is forced from the master to the slave. The slave cylinder should push out a little plunger that contacts the clutch fork lever-pushing it forward to engage the clutch.
Add brake fluid to the reservoir if needed. Watch the plunger on the slave cylinder: if it moves little, or not enough, try bleeding the slave from the bleeder valve. They are bled just like brakes. If bleeding doesn't help, your clutch master or the slave may need replacing. The master cylinder, like a brake master, has internal seals that hold hydraulic pressure, so force can be applied to the plunger on the slave cylinder.

Kia Sephia 5 spd won't shift gears


You need to bleed the lines with a special tool, contact the dealer on this.

Wont go into gear


Did any fluid come out? It has to have fluid reach the slave cylinder, and when bleed valve is open and clutch is pressed, fluid should squirt out. Open the valve and pump the clutch until fluid is forced down into the slave cylinder. Keep topping up the clutch master cylinder so it won't run dry.
Post back if still having problems. There is a tool at auto parts stores for pressure bleeding brake lines and clutch lines. It forces fluid into the lines by pressure. If nothing works, your clutch master cylinder may have failed. Take the line off at the slave cylinder and see if the master cylinder is working to push fluid through the line.

Sister in law driving at 65 mph on turnpike, tried to down shift. Car would not down shift. Towed to my house. Clutch fluid reservoir empty. Filled reservoir with brake fluid, started engine. Forks on...


Did you bleed the air out of the system, also if empty there a leak some where. bleed system and check for leak's, look around for wetness could be a bad slave cylinder, clutch master or the line from clutch master to slave cylinder.

Having trouble gettin air out of the hydraulic clutch slave cylinder bleed it for over an hour goes in to gear fine then will start grinding any help on the best way to bleed it


This is not a complex system. If air is entering, check the line for any sign of fluid seepage. If intact and fittings are tight, you either have a bad master or slave cylinder. The internal piston in either can be allowing seepage which you should be able to see, or are internally bypassing.
