Repeat the above steps until the fluid is clear.
    No worries about sucking too much and having to bleed the system with this method? I love simple maintenance.

    Re: HELP! HELP! Clutch bleeder fell in??

    I happen to have an open/unused bottle of brake fluid from last year in the garage. What do you guys think about using it in the clutch? I'm not going to use it for the brakes because I'm sure it's at the wet boiling point after being open for 6 months.

    I know brake fluid is relatively cheap and I could just get new stuff, just wondering what people think.

    I would throw it out. You wouldn't use it on your brakes and the clutch is more sensitive to poor fluid quality.

    I was going to use it, but I ended up finding a new unopened bottle of valvoline dot3/4 on the shelf and used that instead.
