Default I topped up my clutch fluid today and...

Yeah, I found out that my clutch slave cyclinder was almost empty a few days ago. And I was driving so cautiously just because of that empty clutch fluid slave bottle. But After adding 1/3 bottle of dot3/4 brake fluid in it. My clutch actually performed better. I'm not sure if there was a real effect or it's just something in my mind.

So, whats the use of the clutch slave cyclinder?

Anyone know how to use the speed bleeder? I wanna pick one up from PDM.

again, if my chingrish bothered you, please don't reply ! I knew my engrish sucks big time. All i learnt in Canada was graphs and numbers... etc... never took ESL before ! thats why !

I think you've got your cylinders mixed up in your identification. Your slave cylinder is the cylinder on your transmission and you can't really tell how much fluid is in there. Your master cylinder is on your firewall and that's where you add more brake fluid.

As long as your master has fluid up to the required mark, you'll be fine. If you add fluid without bleeding your hydraulic clutch, it isn't going to do that much good. If your master cylinder is nearly empty, then that's a sign that something is truely wrong - there's a possible leak somewhere! Hydraulic fluid doesn't exactly "disappear" in a closed system. It has to go somewhere.

BwCo, your English is just dandy, don't worry about it.
The purpose of the slave cylinder is to depress the clutch pressure plate by using hydrolic pressure which comes via the clutch master cylinder. The ratio between the master cylinder and the slave cylinder determines whether you have a soft or hard clutch....or right in between!
