It sounds like there is air in the clutch line somewhere. Bleed the clutch (if possible, some clutches are "self-bleeding" and need to be replaced entirely).

Why does your clutch make a popping noise when changing gears?

There is a collar in the front of the transmission ( bellhousing ) that the throw-out bearing slides on when you push the clutch pedal down and let off. It more then likely has a bad were grove cut into it and throw-out bearing is hanging up on it, so it makes a popping noise. You may even have some springs broken in the pressure plate. Need to remove transmission and clutch assy. Be sure to check piolet bearing in the back of crankshaft too.

down shifting is not bad at all... as long as your are downshifting properly and not trying to drop more than one gear at a time or dropping a gear, popping the clutch and redlining then, it's fine... when you're slowing down, squeeze the clutch, down shift, and slowly release the clutch... if you just let it go then yes it can be bad

Clutch sticks down when driving once in a while why?

May be clutch cable sticking, clutch lever on the gearbox sticking or the actual friction plate in the clutch sticking on the shaft. the latter would probably mean taking the gearbox out to check.

How do you bleed a slave cylinder on a 1996 ford ranger?

press down on the clutch, keep it pressed down, and have another person loosen the bleeder screw with the clutch depressed, then tighten it back up and release the clutch. Do this several times until you get a steady stream of fluid (with no air in the fluid) and be sure a keep the clutch master cyl. full at all times, because it will lose fluid when you bleed it Note: if the bleeder screw is tore up, you can always loosen the hose where it enters the slave, and do the same process, using the hose inlet instead of the bleeder screw.
