my clutch pedal has gotten a lot more loose lately, but it doesn't seem to slip, (maybe sometimes) and since I only have 33400 miles on my car i have a had time believing I need a new clutch. one of my friends suggested bleeding my clutch fluid... does anyone know anything about this??

Yup. Remove your air intake system from the throttlebody out. Look down at the tranny. You'll see a shiny little bleeder valve down there. Bleeding the clutch is a process similar to bleeding brakes. :)

I found that a power bleeder like the mityvac was far better then hand bleeding for the clutch. The slave cylinder has a habbit of introducing bubbles if pressed all the way down... especially if the valve is open at that time. With the mitivac you avoid that posibility. Dont forget to fill the resivoir and CLEAN the bleeder screw before you open it... and dont open it too far.... 1/4 turn NO MORE.
