Re: 95 chevy s10 problems with clutch disengaging
Well tried messing with it again this morning and finally got things working. I disconnected the master from the firewall and held it 45 degrees with a zip tie. I then disconnected the slave and held it 45 degrees and pumped the slave pushrod and heard a huge gurgle pop sound from up top. I pumped it about 15 times. Put everything back together accept for the cruise control box (don't use it so why have it in their) and pumped the clutch pedal about 50 times. Topped of fluid and started. At first it didn't want to go into gear like before. So I pumped the pedal 5 times and presto. I can now fully disengage the clutch, and the trans spin down time is about 6 seconds or less. Ran it hot to see if anything was going to bind, but nothing did. Sweet, I didn't think getting air out of this system was that much of a pain. Thanks for the trouble shooting. Learned a lot about this manual trans system. This 95 is my first 5 speed s10. Can't believe I got it for 1200.
