No, air in the line just makes for a limp clutch lever. Typically,if the plates are slipping, pumping the lever might get the plates to slam back together a bit for a moment, but I would inspect for worn plates or weak springs I think? :rolleyes:

Might check that the pin on the lever where it enters the master cyl has just a bit of clearance to allow the MC piston to fully retract and open the return port for the fluid so there is no residual pressure held in the line. Look under that rubber boot for dirt as well, if you have not!
