Tranny Help!

So I helped my buddy changed the clutch on his 4.0 Liter Ranger with 204,000 miles. We got every thing installed and bled the master cylinder and topped off the tranny fluid but for some reason it doesn't want to go into gear sometimes. It wont go into reverse unless you put into 2nd gear for a minute, then it will sometimes not go into first gear. I was thinking about putting all new tranny fluid in and maybe some Lucus Oil additive as well. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Ken

Have a look at the video as it shows how air can be trapped in the system .

After seeing that video, it looks like I just bled the Slave Cylinder. So I need to pull out the Master and bleed it. Pray for me! This has been a 3 day project and I just want it done!
