Q: No pressure in the clutch. 2003 Ford Escort

asked by on

I have tried bleeding the clutch, I pumped the clutch 15 times, and when I opened up the bleeder valve no fluid came out at all. I've also tried holding down the clutch and quickly opening and closing the bleeder valve, I did that about 6 or so times and there was still no pressure at all. I have not been able to get pressure even a little. The car has been sitting almost a year now, the clutch needed replacing, when I got the clutch replaced I made sure it was in correctly before piecing things back together.

My car has 167575 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
