It's actually easy. The first step is to loosen the master cylinder from inside the truck. It's hooked to the clutch pedal so you cant miss it,,
2. Use the disconnect tool to get it loose from the transmission..
3. Pop out the inner fender over the driver side wheel well. Gently pull the line through the frame and out of the inside of the truck, bring it over the driver side wheel,
4. Get a friend and use the plunger that hooks to the peddle to bleed this part . Pump it up. Have a friend hold on to the part that goes in the trans as you push on the plunger. This will bleed the master cylinder so you can have pressure on the throw out bearing inside the trans when put back together.
5. After that, put it back together and then use the bleeder valve on the side of the trans. Pump the clutch up, open the valve and have a friend push the peddle down. ( Do not let off peddle be for closing the valve ) .
If you do not have a clutch after that, use a flat bar, slide it through the opening inside the trans, pump the clutch back up, open the valve and use the bar to push the throw out bearing back to the back of the truck to force the remaining air out. Once again do not let off the bar until the bleeder valve is closed . That should take care of the complete system.
While I am not a Ford mechanic, I can offer the following words:
If the 1994 Ford Ranger is like the 1997 Ford Ranger, the clutch slave cylinder is INSIDE the transmission bell housing. You don't have to be a mechanic to recognize the labor involved to get at it (to bleed it). My 97 Ranger clutch would not engage following two days of 20 below zero (F) weather. I figured the weather had something to do with the malfunction and that it would be prudent to wait until it got above freezing to bleed the clutch MASTER cylinder (which is outside, and in front of, the bell housing). It got above freezing 2 weeks later, I bled the (easily accessible) Master cylinder - and guess what? The clutch still didn't engage. I towed the wretched machine to the nearest Ford qualified mechanic and 700 dollars and 4 days later the bitter truth was revealed: Ford Engineers can't design a fluid clutch assembly that can be reasonably maintained without dropping, and splitting the transmission (and without dropping a lot of cash)!
There is a great tutorial on AutoZone's site on how to do my 1997 Ranger 2.3L 2WD.
If your transmission has a bleed valve for the slave cylinder sticking out just above the master to slave cylinder quick connect going into the trans, then this tutorial is for you.
The transmissions in the Ford Rangers are actually designed and built by Mazda, Most are the M50 R1 5 speeds. The clutch throwout bearing and slave cylinder are replaced as a single unit which ups the price. You have to drop the trans, but the case is not split for replacing the slave. Yep, I have a 1995 Ranger and the slave bleed valve is located on side of bellhousing. If you loosen your clutch pedal (won't disengage) check the level of brake fluid in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. Try and bleed the system with fresh brake fluid until the fluid runs out clear. Mine was black as coal when I first bled mine and after several minutes of bleeding the system the fluid ran clear and the clutch pedal worked again. I have not had any problems with the clutch since then. I do need to add a bit of fluid every once in a while.
Hydraulic clutches are all the same on cars. The main thing is figure out a way to tighten those fluid pipelines very tightly so that there are no leaks, It is very important to bleed them just once or else you wont get a nice pedal. The very main key once you install them is 'never touch', that is it, that's is why you want to get the bleeding done right away. When bleeding make sure you fill the bleeder vacuum pump reservoir all the way. The reason is so that you are sure it is really flush and no going back. Thats it, once you install them both never touch after that. If you have the original dealer parts they last around 85,000 miles.
The clutch can't be adjusted. It is an hydraulic clutch. The clutch pedal sends pressure from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder on the clutch. IF you are having trouble with it the thing to do is bleed the air out at the slave cylinder. Have an assistant pump the clutch and hold it to the floor. Then open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder to let the air out of the system. On the final bleed hold the clutch to the floor and close the bleed valve on the slave cylinder. The clutch master cylinder operates of the brake fluid reservoir. Make sure you keep this full of brake fluid as you bleed the clutch.

well mines not a ranger its a ford f250 super cab 7.5 l now how do i stop the clutch pedle from going to the floor

The clutch pedal assembly has a clutch rod that pushes in on a clutch master cylinder. There is a hydro line that goes from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder.
Sure, but you also need to get the air out of the lines and the master cylinder. Put the slave on, then bleed the clutch keeping a supply of brake fluid in the reservoir.

There are two normal causes. The clutch is worn out or there is a leak in the hydraulic clutch slave or master cylinder. To check the clutch, press the clutch slave cylinder down. If the clutch slave cylinder bellows compresses down to the slave cylinder, the clutch is worn out. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level. if this is low, then the clutch cylinder need to be checked. To check for a hydraulic leak in the clutch slave cylinder, remove the cylinder's bellows and check for any fluid. If fluid is present, rebuild or replace the cylinder and bleed the system. To check the clutch master cylinder, check the back the of clutch master cylinder for leaks. If fluid is present, replace or rebuild clutch master cylinder and bleed the system. In my experience, hydraulic leaks occur at the clutch slave cylinder.
On the clutch slave cylinder
Bleed the clutch line that runs from the clutch master cylinder to the slave cylinder utilizing the bleed valve on the slave cylinder.
Replace clutch master cylinder and bleed system,also check your slave cylinder for leaks.its bolted to your transmission,the clutch cable is connected to it.
Whenever you are having a problem with the clutch disengaging the engine from the transmission it is advisable to bleed the clutch slave cylinder. If the clutch can't be operated by bleeding the slave cylinder then the clutch master cylinder is gone and should be replaced.
Right above the slave cylinder there is a bleeder screw. Just unsrew it and have someone hold in the clutch to start the bleed.
To bleed a clutch on a Nissan Stanza, you need to find the bleed-off valve, usually somewhere near the slave cylinder.

You bleed the clutch at the slave cylinder located near the transmission close to the radiator up front.
first check your clutch slave cylinder for leaks, if its leaking ,replace and bleed system,if its not leaking,bleed system ,dont forget to bleed clutch damperand if its still not right, then replace clutch master cylinder.

The same way you bleed brakes, but use the little bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. The same way you bleed brakes, but use the little bleeder valve on the slave cylinder.
if i replace slave cylinder in 1994 Honda civic ex will this make my clutch disengage and engage correctlyanswerchange master cylinder and slave properly then bleed the system properly.
You must bleed the clutch dampener before bleeding the slave cylinder its that weird curvey steel hose before the slave unter the passangers feet. look arount the side of the dampner for the bleed screw
The slave cylinder is a hydraulic device that acutuates the clutch. As you depress the clutch pedal it's movement sends hydraulic pressure to the clutch to release it. It's like stepping on the brakes only withe clutch.
