SOURCE: changed slave cylinder 92gmc 1500 have no pedal

Hi: Your slave cylinder works like the master cylinder, it has a resevior for fluid and needs to be bleed free from air.

If you're not planning to remove the slave cylinder, I found it easier to use a set of ramps under the front wheels and work under the vehicle rather than jacking it up and taking off the front wheels. Put one end of the plastic tubing on the end of the nipple, the other in the empty jar.
When you have reassembled the clutch hydraulics, refill the clutch fluid reservoir, make sure the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder is tightly closed. Now, with the piece of wood within reach, slowly depress the clutch pedal with your hand and hold it down while you prop the wood against it, wedging the other end against the bolt that holds down the left front of the driver’s seat. Next, open the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder. You may see some fluid, or just a puff of air, or perhaps some of both in the form of bubbles. In any event, close the nipple tightly again. On your way back to the clutch pedal, check the fluid reservoir and top off as necessary. Hold the clutch pedal down with your hand as you remove the wood brace, then slowly release the pedal. When it is all the way up, press it down again slowly and reinsert the wood. Open and close the bleed nipple again. Repeat the entire process as many times as needed until you see a solid stream of clear brake fluid coming from the nipple with no air bubbles. Be sure to close the nipple tightly each time to avoid sucking air back into the system when you release the clutch pedal. And don’t forget to check the fluid reservoir each time.
Check the clutch pedal with your foot to see if you have normal pressure. If it seems okay start the vehicle and put it in gear (reverse if you’ve got it up on ramps). Now take it around the block and roadtest it. If all is not right, you’ve still got air in the system and will have to bleed it some more. Re-check the fluid reservoir again after a few hours—you may find that you need to top off the reservoir one last time.
Note: When I did mine, I had let the system drain so I could flush out dirty fluid. The first couple of times I opened the bleed nipple, therefore, I pumped the clutch pedal three times in order to make the process go a little faster, because I knew that the first couple of times all I’d be doing was compressing air.
I have replaced both my master and slave cylinders and have found through this experience that you do not need to open and close the bleed nipple. Because of the location of the slave cylinder gravity does the job. Just loosen the slave nipple and let the fluid run out until there is no more air. You might have to pump once or twice but once the fluid starts to move it works on its own. Tighten, nipple and you're done.

Not with the right tools by the Oil Pressure Sending unit (AKA OPS) tool that will fit in there you may have to contort your body a little.

I own a 2002 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton. I have cleaned the injectors, changed fuel filter, changed oil and filter, replaced tires, but she is still fluttering and then dyeing. The RPM's drop and it feels like I...


hello,
You have a bad oil pressure switch. I know that sounds strange but It feeds the fuel pump. Some times randomly the PCM does a self check and shuts off the fuel pump relay when it does this it runs off power from the oil pressure switch. The easiest way to confirm this as a diagnosis is to unplug the fuel pump relay when the engine is running. If it dies when you unplug it thats it. if not you will probably need a fuel pump or possibly just a cap and rotor (tune) but I belive it is the oil pressure switch.

Low oil pressure


Yes, the distrubutor runs the oil pump. Try sliding the old one back in and see if you get pressure back.
But I'll warn you you may have caused lots of problems running it with no oil to the bearings.

1995 GMC Sierra z71 oil pressure dropped- need advice on this


The oil pump is in the oil pan and needs to be dropped and being a 4WD you also need to drop the front axle pumpkin to remove the oil pan and replace all the gasket needed. Start with the easy and replace the oil pressure sending unit, it's on the back of the engine to the passenger side of the distributor. You can go to Auto Zone and pick up a new Oil sending unit, just make sure your get the right one, "Sending Unit" Looks the same are the oil pressure sensor but the unit reads the pressure, the other just signal a light to go on and off. It's an easy fix like replacing a spark plug.

2003 GMC Sierra Knock sensor and oil pressure??


the knock sensors are located below the intake plenum,or,upper intake manifold as some call it, they screw into the lower intake, the front one is sensor 1, the rear is sensor 2. it is wise to change both if you have some miles.since you are going to be buying a gasket set to do this job.the sensors are cheaper than the gaskets.

Need to change oil pump on a 89 for ranger


You should not rely on the dash gage for this decision... If you have verified poor pressure, only then should consider changing it. Remember oil can loose pressure at many places internally and replacing it may not accomplish your goal.

Now to change the oil pump without engine removal is quite a task, take off the oil pan and the sump filter, then with lots of light, you can reach up in there with a long allen socket or 12pt 7/16 size?, and pull it out.... not sure if the distributor needs to come out ...remove it only if necessary. be careful not to turn over the crank if you remove the distributor because it is driven by the camshaft as I recall and this would obviously get change your spark timing set up.
.

good luck
