  1. Guys, I used the Motive power bleeder per your recommendation and everything seemed to work out accordingly, i.e., air came out in droves until finally nothing came out but clean fluid. However, I still can’t shift into reverse or 1st and 2nd gear and the pedal feels spongy and not at all like before. My plan for today is to take the care off the ramps to see if the angle in which the car sits is causing the issue since the OEM recommends to take the left wheel off to bleed the slave…it doesn’t make sense but I am at wits end and pretty close to just having it towed to the dealer to get fixed, dang it all. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Guys, I finally received my Motive Power bleeder but have one question; after going to the process of checking the bleeder for air leaks, there were none, I filled up the tank with brake fluid as directed, but, I notice that when I went to pump up the pressure it filled the clear line with fluid and “air” that traveled through the hose into the reservoir. Is this normal? The reason I ask is that I am afraid to pump more air into the system defeating my objective, please advice thanks.
  3. JFP in PA, I replaced the slave cylinder without any issues, but, now I am having a heck of a time trying to bleed the air out of the system eventhough I followed the instructions from DIY Brake & Clutch fluid change and bleeding instructions to the tee. I even tried using a hand operated vaccum pump which seems to work since I can see the air bubbles coming out, but, I am having issues holding a vaccum on the system; probably leaking by the seals on the container so I am thinking of buying a new pump. Oh yes, I was told that if I use a vaccum pump I don't have to hold down on the clutch pedal but need to ensure there is plenty of fluid in the brake mastercylinder, is this correct? Please advise, and thanks for any inputs you may have. 19Fatboy53
  4. I was thinking it might be the slave too in that it might be bleeding through, but, again, how would air enter the system with no visual signs of leaks? Again, thanks for all your help/input in helping me to resolve this issue. Fatboy
  5. Yes, I followed the DIY as posted. The pedal was held to the floor each time I tried bleeding the system. I blead the system four times and three of the four times air came out with the exception of the last when only fluid came out.
  6. I have a 2003 CS4 which I just recently started having issues shifting gears, specifically into reveres or down shifting to first and second gear. It feels as though I have plenty of clutch, so I decided to go into DIY Brake & Clutch fluid change and bleeding instructions in which I was able to bleed air out of the system. However, now that I’ve bled all the air out of the system I cannot shift gears at all. Can you guys help? 19Fatboy53
  7. I have a 2003 911 C4S and what to change out the spark plugs, can anyone out there provide me the process for doing so? Thanks for any help you can provide. Carlos
