You likely still have air in the system, try the gravity bleed first. it usually work best.

I have already replaced the clutch master cylinder, just cut and dry, without any manuel book.

I removed the old one and installed to new then added the

DOT 3 Brake Fluid, now what?

Start over? Hope not.

Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago

The master will need to be blead, down load the instruction I sent you in the above post, try the gravity bleed first.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
