Q: how to fill slave cylinder

asked by on

car wont go into gear while running

My car has 10800 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

In order to pump up the clutch you need to fill the clutch master cylinder with brake fluid. Have an assistant push the clutch to the floor several times while the clutch is held open with the bleed screw on the clutch slave cylinder. Once the fluid is expelled then tighten the bleeder. Repeat several times until no more air is in clutch hydraulic system. Make sure not to let master cylinder run out of fluid. If you would like to have this done for you, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the gear issue and perform any needed services.
