I know this has been adressed and I am sorry for asking again, but I can't seem to find the information... Where does one find the bleeder 'valve' on an '89? My clutch is really squishy. It doesn't slip at all, but I have to put it through the floor to get it to disengage...I filled the fluid about a month ago and it is still full so I don't think there is a leak (or at least a bad one). But on longer trips, I have difficulty changing gears. I have to pump the clutch a number of times it seems to build pressure. Wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for the hills I am climbing. Thanks for the help!

if you never blead the clutch than you still have air in the system, on the slave clyinder theres a bleeder valve but you need to have someone hold the clutch as your doing it to remove all the air and make sure you have a coffee can or something to catch all that fluid, at first air will come out but it will bleed to fluid eventually.

Went to drive to dinner last night and clutch went out completely! I shut her off and put it in third and hobbled it home. Luckily, I found where the bleeder screw is supposed to be! Not so luckily, it backed itself completely out I guess, as it is no longer there...Does anybody know off hand, what size that screw is, or if it is a universal thing? Thanks!

Haven't looked but I imagine you could take the brake bleeder screw off temporarily and check and see if it's the same size? You may have to bleed the brakes then? It's probably a spec size you could find from the dealer parts dept. Just a thought. Or get an imprint of the diameter and go get a few screws with different thread pitches til you find the right one-can't be that hard
