can someone help me out here.. I just drained all of my clutch fluid and then closed the bleed valve and refilled the reservoir. now my pedal has no pressure and sticks to the floor. how do i get the pressure back??
1.place the open end of the tube higher than where the valve is. this way, no air will get stuck in the system and you can pump away on the clutch(by hand, since it's normal that it won't come up automatically).
2.when you have drained enough(while filling the reservoir, close the valve.
3. for good measure, bleed for a short amount again to ensure you have good pressure in ur system.
but the key here is having the open end of the tube higher than where the valve is.
and to close the valve while only fluid is coming out(i.e. no bubbles)
thanks for the help guys.. I was trying to bleed the air out before but I think I let the reservoir get too low and allowed some more air into the system. This time I made sure not to drain it too much each time and the pressure eventually came back.
Next job is to flush the brakes. Will this be a similar procedure? And can anyone tell me where the bleed valve for the brake fluid is? thanks alot.
