Default Bleed hydraulic clutch 92 Accord LX 4dr : Slave Cylinder

My accord sat for 2 years. I recently went to start it and the clutch pedal went pretyy close to the floor. However, it stil works a bit, but the car is always in gear if I start it up in first. The clutch resoivoir was empty so I'm presuming that some air got in. How do I bleed the system? Where is that bleeder valve located? Where is the slave cylinder? If anyone can help, I would tremendously appreciate it.

One more, how do I replace the water pump without dropping or raising the engine? I did the timing belt about 4 years ago but didn't hit the water pump.

Any and all responses are great. Thanks!

The clutch slave cylinder is on the front of the tranny, about mid-elevation, close to the radiator fan. Also close to the split line between engine block & tranny. The bleed screw is on the slave, pointing sorta upwards.

Loop some string around the clutch pedal, so you can pull it back up while pumping it. Put a hose on the bleed screw & put it in a bottle. Get a friend to pump the pedal.

1 - Pump the pedal & then hold it down.

2 - Open the bleed screw a bit, close it immediately when fluid stops flowing.

3 - Use the string to raise the pedal, it won't spring up on it's own. Control it with foot, DON'T let it snap quickly up.

Repeat 1 - 2 - 3 for a bunch of times, while watching the fluid level in the reservoir. Don't let it go empty!

When the fluid coming from the bleeder is fresh & clean, you're done.


The water pump was right there when you replaced the timing belt. It was the 'other' toothed pulley, real close to the smooth tensioner pulley. If you get the tensioner out of the way, there's a small handful of bolts around the waterpump pulley; that's all you needed to do. Doing it now requires removing the timing belt again, so you may as well get a new one since it's been 4 years.
