Clutch Repair

I have repaired, replaced, and rebuilt clutches, both hydraulic and mechanical in the past, but this trick I had never seen or heard of. Seems one of the passages in the master cylinder on my Gen 4b ('98-'02) Camaro was made too small to pass trapped air in the system so;

If the clutch on your Gen 4b Camaro is soft, spongy, and sinks to the floor, the fix is to mechanically power suck the last bits of trapped air from the Master cylinder through the reservoir. This quick and simple process will have your clutch as firm and high as your neighbors teenage daughter in about 5-10 minutes.

There's probably a more diplomatic way of describing the process, but since I'm not running for president...
