I just did the clutch in my '02, I had 2 issues. That stupid anti dump valve on the operating cyl. You can remove the guts of it and solve a lot of the bleed issues. The second problem was operating cyl would stick and not extend by the internal spring pressure back out, drawing fluid back in.
I'd clean or replace, and while youre at it ditch the anti dump valve. Mine now operates better than it ever has.
Heres the hard way:
The easy way is to remove the large bolt, and just pull the springs out of the housing the above instructions tell you to eliminate all together.
