In your clutch? I guess you mean in the clutch cylinder. There is a bleeding valve near the radiator on the transmission, you have to unrachet while applying pressure, rachet back and pump the clutch until the pressure returns. If there's still bubbles just repeat until you've bled the cylinder free of bubbles. Remember to refill the reservoir.

Yes that would need to be bled out of the system then. Do what I posted earlier.

Isn't the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder? From my experience this is a 2-person job unless you have a speed-bleeder installed. It's just like bleeding brake lines. Last time I couldn't even bleed it right, I ended up just taking it to the shop.

Also- If you're clutch is going to the floor this may be a sign that your master/slave cylinder is going out. How many miles do you have on the car?

Yes, its the slave, and ohh yes, don't leave the top off the reservoir.

BTW, it should be a two man job (someone opens the bleeder, another pushes the pedal down), but I've done it by myself.
If this doesn't solve the problem, then you probably have a defective master or slave cylinder.

The slave cylinder is not costly but I have no idea on the master....

The bleeder is located (if you look at the car from up front) near the air filter box (right side) if you look down toward the transmission you will see it. Its a bolt with a little hole just like the bleeders located on the brakes.

FYI- if you choose to replace the slave cyliner I would highly reccomend replacing the master cylinder also. Both work together and usually will go out together. Last time I replace a slave cylinder the master started leaking about a week later.
