I just looked at the fluid and it's full, but I can see crap in it. I'm going to flush the fluid tomorrow morning...

Anyone know the correct way to flush the clutch fluid? Should I just get like a turkey baster thing and suck all the old stuff out, then refill it? Anything else I need to do?

There is still fluid in the system, so sucking it all out with a turkey baster probably won't work.

I would get plenty of Honda DOT3 fluid, and just bleed it untill you have refilled it afew times.

if you look at the tranny (to the left) you will see a little bolt with a round head that probably has a black plastic cover on top of it.

No no, two different things.

The clutch is engaged/disengaged by hydrolics. Much like your brakes. Which is why the clutch hydrolic system uses brake fluid.

The tranny itself should have MTL in it. If you look at your brake fluid resiovour, there is a simmilar resivour yet smaller to the right of it. Thats the clutch fluid.

Bleed the clutch, just like you bleed your brakes. Make sure to add brake fluid, before too much is blead.

Weston,
Yes, it's a good idea to use a turkey baster to get the visible crap in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. Then refill the reservoir with brake fluid.

To find the clutch bleeder valve...
-first look at the engine
-then look at the exhaust manifold(header)
-you probably can't see the manifold directly because the heat shield is covering it.
-follow to where the bottom of the heat shield is
-now move 3-4 inches to the left
-you should see the bleeder valve with a black nipple cover
-The slave cylinder is mounted to the transmission

Then use a vacuum pump or one-way valve to bleed the clutch cylinders.

This might sound like a dumb question. If the clutch master cylinder uses Honda Dot 3, is there a reason why we cant use any other Dot 3 brake fluid? Suggestions like such as Castrol LMA or Motul 600 RBF??

Does any one know the wet boiling temp for the Honda Dot3? The reason I'm asking is because I'm also planning on replacinng the fluid in the brake master cyl.

Thanks
