Re: 1995 ford ranger manual 2.3l clutch problem
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.
