Hi.
I have a 1997 5-speed Ford Explorer. My husband does all our mechanic work on our cars and dirtbikes. He recenltly replaced the clutch slave cylinder but can not get it to work properly. He clamped the line and tested to make sure it was building pressure through it, but can not get it to work properly.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks.
Tammy

Maybe this will help to bleed it properly

Thanks for the prompt reply!I dragged him over to the computer and although he was insulted that I asked someone advice and did not trust him (I was just trying to help) he reviewed it and said he had done it that way already and the clutch works, it is just not soft like hydraulic clutches should be.

Thanks for trying to help. He seems to think the part is just a peice of %$#*. It is lifetime warrantied though.

Have a good day!

Lol I see, its probably there's still air in it. Is it OEM parts. Hey you can go back and return it and tell the parts store its a piece? I want the good stuff or my money back.

Or sweet talk him to start at the clutch master cylinder all the way to the slave to get that air out-then cook him a good labor day dinner for the job well done.
