Another clutch question

so I'm going down the road now that I have my new half shaft in and all is dandy, I get to a stop light and the clutch goes to the floor and engages only at the very end. The problem, I assume, is low fluid or air in the lines? The thing that puzzles me is if you double clutch, it barely engages out of gear but from neutral it works properly. Also I checked the fluid level and it is full. Can I temporarily fix this by bleeding the line? There was a slight drip a couple of times before but has since stopped. Can it still be driven until I replace the master and slave? Thanks for any help

Jason

Try bleeding and see if that solves the problem.

Here we are again, I replaced the slave and master cylinders and bled the line. I put everything back together and fire it up. I depress the clutch but it still wont let me put it into gear so I adjust the pedal on the master cylinder rod all the way at the end. Now it will go into gear but I still am having problems shifting(hard to get out of and into gear at times) and it is slips when I accelerate hard. Any thoughts?

Do you have proper free play in the pedal?

I went from all the way tight on the adjustment rod, where the pedal was set before I did the work to all the way out to the end in 1/8" increments and it would not engage the clutch at all until it was all the way out to the end. I am not missing something am I, there is no other adjustment besides the pedal stop right?

The pedal has to have some free play in it or it does weird stuff.

I had it adjusted so there was play but it was refusing too engage the clutch. Do you need to re bleed after making adjustments to the pedal to relieve any vacuum or does that work itself out?

Bleed again....

Of course something could be wrong with the clutch end of things.

There are two pedal stops that should be adjusted, one for up and one for down.

Would the adjustment being off account for the not shifting and the slipping? It seems like it should be one or the other, not both.
