Ok, onto the next part of this saga- Had the slave cylinder replaced. Over the period of about 10 minutes, the clutch pedal will be soft until half way down. (same thing over night). If I pump it like 10 times, the pressure builds up. 10 minutes later, half pedal again. the mechanic said "Its your master as well" - So I replaced the master- neither of the parts looked like anything was bleeding past the seal (would have seen it on the inner side, but nothing). There appears to be no fluid loss anymore- its not leaking anywhere, so whats the deal here? Not enough bleeding? Bleed some more? The way i bled the system was- Fill fluid- Pump until pressure was felt. have someone depress the clutch, while I open the bleeder screw. Fluid shoots out. Close screw, let off clutch. DO again. Is this the right way? or am I just not bleeding enough? its just this half soft pedal in 10 minutes thats irking me.
