Default Grinding in reverse

Hi all , a while ago i came on here and meantioned i had a few problems with my transmission well now thats pretty much fixed , except for a little problem

When i go to put the truck in reverse sometimes its grinding , so i brought it by a transmission place and they said the transmission fine but i probably need to bleed it , they wanted to charge alot to bleed it but they said it is pretty simple but didnt explain what to do

I had heard other info from someone else , that i should find a brass hard hose underneath the truck and i find were it connects to the transmission and they unscrew it and leave it overnight to let the air come out

First of all is the info i got correct and if so were exactly is the brass hose because i cant find it , is it on the passenger side or the drivers side or does anyone have a pic of it or something

Thanks

Good grief. As usual, the last time you asked this question 3 months ago, it was answered completely and in detail.

No, you can't just leave the cap off. Your have the answer. If you can't do it then for the 8,000th time, you need to have a qualified mechanic work on it.

Your right , sorry im saying this based on what some mechanic said was the way to do it but i see now i cant just leave the cap off now , i was just reading the proper procedure for doing it , because its says about if i leave it off then the air will get back in , so like i said i just found the instructions on how to do it

http://www.ehow.co.uk/how_6607196_bl...rd-ranger.html

It says to locate the slave cylinder and slave cylinder bleed screw on the transmission assembly next to the transmission bell housing , is that going to be on the drivers side or passenger side

i just want to make sure exactly were to look for it before just getting under the truck and searching

it will be on the drivers side because your clutch pedal has to connect to it

This is what im looking for correct ?





I just had another question , i read on the step by step instructions to bleed the transmission of course before opening the bleed screw it says to pump the clutch 10 to 15 times so then most of the air should be near the bleed screw

My question is while i have someone in the vehicle holding down the clutch while im at the bleed screw , how can i tell all the air came out , is there any simple way to figure it out

I just read this someone said on another post "Easiest way to bleed the clutch I've found is to get a 2oz Syringe, remove the hose from the reservoir and attach it to the syringe, fill with fluid, open bleeder and force the fluid down, works first time, every time, even with a brand new dry master cylinder"

Would the thing i just read probably be the simplest and easily way to know all the air is out

Let me know what you guys think

Thanks

Have you ever bleed brakes? Cause it's the same thing. Pump theclutch, open the bleeder, let the fluid come out, close thebleeder, pump the clutch, repeat. You'll know when the airs out because it'll shoot out a steady stream of fluid.
