4cyl. Clutch help please
1 Attachment(s)
All of the fluid has leaked out of my clutch lines and reservoir, I believe I know where the leak is and have noted in the picture below. Is this fitting replaceable or fixable? Also is the loose nipple in the picture the one used for bleeding the lines? It is a 4cyl if that helps. My Chilton manual says that on the 4cyl the bleed and main line are on opposite sides but as you can see from the pic it looks like a 6cyl (according to Chilton). Thanks

The nipple is the bleeder. The line is replaceable with regular bulk brake line and compression fittings. They are notorious for leaking slave cylinders in the tranny housing and it will run down that feed line. Fill it and pump the clutch to see if it is just the fitting. It uses brake fluid if you didn't know. Hope that helps.

Clean and tape rag to absorb fluid above fitting, add fluid and cycle clutch to discriminate fitting leak from slave leak.
