I have an 88 4 cyl, 5 spd. I went to bleed the clutch, only to find that the bleeder screw is totally corroded and needs replacing. I made the [rather stupid] assumption that the valve would be same size as those used on the brakes, and bought a speed bleeder of the same size. As it goes with any assumption I make, the brake bleeder screws were the wrong size--too small. I've looked online, at the Fiero Store, and at a few auto stores around town. Nobody has a bleeder screw that size. Is there some magic trick or secret part hitherto kept under wraps that I'm missing? Or is it that I'm going to have to buy an entirely new slave cylinder just to replace a bleeder screw...

Larry, any chance it's a speed bleeder? My wife is a fantastic carpenter / landscaper / electrician, but she won't stick her hand under a hood to save her life. If it's not, do you by chance have a part number? Or should I be able to find something with an Isuzu MT2 search... (which, incidentally, I did. But the auto-check stuff keeps telling me it won't fit my car. I assume [probably incorrectly again] that they're referring to the brakes with no clue on the transmission] but I figured it'd be worth asking someone who knows what they're doing.

Just a plain old bleader valve. No part number. Larry

You can bleed the clutch slave by yourself, get a long 2x4 and open the car door and push the clutch pedal witht the 2x4 while standing by the bleeder with a wrench on it, I've done it.

I just done it myself last night, take the back vent off and you could use a broom handle or 2X4 like suggested to push the clutch, its pretty simple to do. DON'T forget to top up your master cylinder fluid.

Done that as well. I bet that was a sight from a distance.
