Exclamation getting really nervous!

so i just replaced my clutch and slave cyl. and i bleed it out like 8 times and what happens is ill drive alone for like 10 or 15 miles and start to lose presser. ill bleed it again and get air then the same thing happens. i really hope its not a faulty save cyl because i dont know what id do if it was. i really dont wanna pull the trans again

so what could be happening? i checked the fluid level and it always stays the same. so its no leaking fluid

I tryed bleeding it a different way this time. I read online that you can open the bleeder screw push down clutch then tighten screw. I hope this works.

It helps to have a tube on the bleed valve and run that into a glass jar with the tube submerged in fluid.

what year is your Jeep?

Yup that's what I did. Filled a beer bottle part way full with fluid and put a clear line into the fluid.

My jeep is a 87 4.2 with the ax/15 trans. 5 speed m.

That's where u pump the fluid into the bleeder screw right? I was just looking at the pumps to do that and looked up how to do it was well. If also heard good things and it seems really easy and fast

Also heard of tapping the lines to help the bubbles work upward when using that method.

I will be trying this soon but on my MGB

I'll give that a try as well. I hope I have left over air in the line and really hope it not sucking air from somewhere!!!
