Clutch Fluid Change

Has anyone attempted to change the clutch fluid in their Gen II? If so, is it a fairly easy task?

I have the service manual and it appears to be fairly simple, but after talking with my brother he said on a few of the cars they've had in his shop some of the clutches end up being complete PITAs to flush without getting any air in the lines.

Also, how much fluid am I going to need?

I do it with my Mityvac. Suck one small DOT 4 through. Don't let reservoir run dry and there is no problem. Some pics in my DIY thread here:

Done it with the vac as well. Works well. I would suggest that you swap to blue fluid to see the change in color on the swap. This way it's easy to see the change.

Just for OP and future reader's reference, that's ATE Super Blue.

I just read yesterday that Continental has issued a safety recall because the blue color is not compliant with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard on brake fluids.

They produce the same fluid as ATE TYP 200 which is gold colored, so, not a big deal.

The regulation doesn't make sense at first thought; but, then again, we do need to protect against people who might mistakenly swap between blue brake fluid and blue windshield washer fluid. Not sure how they protect against swapping gold brake fluid with gold motor oil, though.

I have always just sucked out all the fluid from the reservoir and replaced it with clean fluid. Do this a few times and it is pretty clean. Better with vacuum method described above.

Not on my Viper but on my prior car with T56. Worked very well. I had a remote bleeder so it was a one man job without a lift.
