Replaced my clutch, new throw out/ slave assembly and the new one is different than the old one. From Kia. Even had them order a second one to make sure and the same one came in. The old one had a bleeder valve on a second line coming out of the bell housing. This one has a plastic nipple on the inlet line but doesn't seem to open or anything. Anyone here know how to bleed this style slave cylinder??

I can't see the details of the new slave cylinder - is there an additional plugged port on the new one that you could fit the old bleed tube to?

3rd Gen Manual-equipped Fortes only have a single tube with a bleeder in the line:

Looks like you let the fluid do the work by pushing in the clutch (hold down clutch pedal).

Supposedly that's what in my 2010 Koup 2.4L 6speed. I haven't been able to get the chance for the $1,600.00 repair at the 3mile near me transmission repai shop.

That's what they quoted price to repair. I told my wife another $500 can get a new transmission. Shouldn't be $1,600?

The 1st time it was at the same transmission shop. My friend had burned out the clutch completely. They replaced the slave cylinder for $600-$700.

He got that fixed & now it's out. Don't know if they used OE./Factory or some pos Chineseium made from Autozone, O'Reillys?

He isn't a car guy. More a tech/keyboard warrior & selfie gamer/gets a hard on for Tesla type.

I asked him for the work order & where did they get the parts from. He said he didn't know. Just paid to get it fixed.

Now I need to get it fixed. Been sitting there for maybe 2 months. Wife doesn't want me to mess with it.

I'm a bad owner. It hurts ma soul.
