having problem bleeding clutch fluid system in my SR20DET tranny!!!

Postby 91nissantwo40sx » Thu Dec 13, 2007 10:37 am

ok so i had put in a new slave cylinder in my SR20det tranny because the other one was leaking. Now that i have the new slave cylinder installed i cant get the clutch fliud to bleed properly. I will only get a little amount when i try and bleed it. Any one know what could be causing this?

i have a stock SR20DET with a 3" striaght pipe 90k miles on it.

Try bleeding your master cylinder as well. It could have air stuck in it if it was ran dry.

It could also just be a sign that it's going bad too. Is this clutch an aftermarket clutch? Knowing name/type helps a lot more than knowing you have a 3" exhaust

if you haven't already, remove that dampener thing, it makes life much easier when trying to bleed the clutch. there's a write up about it somewhere on here.

Having done this a fwe times on multiple cars, I can attest to the above being 100 percent true. I've NEVER been able to bleed a system properly with that stupid dampner in place, and I've tried to attack it everyway possible (gravity, snap on power bleeder, mighty vac reverse bleed, standard two guy bleed)....

The second you take that thing out, it only takes 5 minutes to get it set up properly :D
