Default 93 Honda Clutch Problem

Hi i have a 93 honda accord in which the clutch goes to the floor and sticks to the floor so today i replaced the master cylinder which i found to be leaking so i got it back in and when i go to bleed it now it wont build pressure and i get no fluid at the bleeder so i opened the incoming pipe to the slave cylinder and i got fluid to pump out when i press the clutch so does this mean my slave cylinder is gone to? Thank you for any info

This could be from air in the system.

I would reconnect the line to the slave and bleed air from that valve.

This is from Desert's DIY writeup on bleeding brake lines. It is basically the same procedure for the clutch master cylinder.

have an assistant pump the brake pedal slowly and evenly several times,,ask them to hold the pedal down, ,


loosen up the bleeder screw to let the air in the system escape, it is a good idea to put a hose from the bleeder screw going into a container , that way you do not splash brake fluid all over ,, while pedal is still down retighten the bleeder screw,, repeat it, till no more air comes out..

Remember not to let the reservoir go empty,, so it is a good idea to check and fill it after each wheel has been bled,,

i can't hold the clutch down cause it goes and sticks right to the floor i've had someone pump it by hand but i still got nothing at the bleeder when i cracked it. which i don't get how there was fluid at the inlet pipe on the slave cylinder when i pumped and not at the bleeder less than 1" away. that's why i think the slave is bad. is there any other reason that would cause the clutch to snap to the floor and stick? Thank you for that info it is appreciated

When I changed out my master, I had the same problem at first whenever I have changed out part of my clutch hydraulics.

Pull up the clutch pedal with your hand at first. It should get better once all of the air has been pushed out.

If the pedal doesn't get better, then I would replace the slave as well.

Wrap a string around the clutch pedal so you can lift it while your foot is on it. Keep it under control, lift it smoothly. I've found that if you allow the pedal to SNAP upwards, that sucks air into the MC.
