Someone's "fix" for clutch bleeding

Postby DSUZU » Sat Jan 07, 2017 8:39 pm

Just came across this. I drove the vehicle and the clutch just barely releases. One more reason you need to find a competent mechanic or do it yourself. Dennis

On my friends Trooper we found the same thing. The issue was a ruptured diaphragm in the damper keeping air trapped. Removed damper and everything worked perfect.

This is an Amigo so no damper (although my '97 Rodeo had one). This is typical of a non-Isuzu experienced mechanic's fix. Honestly, on my '91 V-6 Trooper (manual conversion), the only way I could get the clutch to where I liked it was adding a washer on the slave rod between the ball and fork. And the damper was removed from that one. Dennis
