these transmissions are very hard to bleed but some one one another site took the time to write up a sorta trick for getting it done.

These procedures allow you to remove air - which must be done. However, you must also build up pressure. After bleeding the system - and you are confident their is no air in the system - Sit in the cab and pump and pump and pump the clutch pedal - for a long time.

Air can still come out of the closed bleeder valve and eventually you will build up positive pressure. I struggled for days with my Ranger and eventually a mechanic showed me this - now it runs great.

I also bench bled the system before installation, which helped shorten the initial bleeding time.

Re: 1995 ford ranger manual 2.3l clutch problem

Because of the angle of the master cylinder air cannot escape easily. This method will overcome the problem. Fill a flexible nozzle hand pump oiler with brake fluid. Have someone step on the clutch and hold it down all the way. Insert the nozzle of the oiler into the resevoir and firmly hold it down into the intake hole at the bottom of the resevoir. Have the person slowly let up the clutch while you slowly pump the oiler. If done properly you will feel the hand pump lever move as the pedal is being let up. Repeat this as necessary and then follow up with the normal bleeding at the slave cylinder.
