Clutch pedal sticks coming back up when released quickly

You need to inspect the feed line if the return line is squezed or kinked in any place it will impede return and the cylinder will seem stuck. If the lines are servicable remove the cylinder and bench test and bleed. it might be a burr left in the cylinder. Also check travel of the pedal without the system in place. Finally When I replace one of these units I have to bleed it out of the vehicle with another person holding the slave cylinder because there is no bleed screw on the slave cylinder. If you removed the little brass screw you broke it. I find there is no way to get out all the air unless the slave cylinder is held verticle with consant pressure applied to the throw arm. Then when bled reinsert into vehicle.

I have a 1996 f150 4x4 5 speed v 4.9 engine that the clutch mastercylinder has to be pumped up before you can put vehicle in gear. It has a new clutch mastercylinder should I change out the slave cylinder?

did you bleed the slave cylinder? On the slave cylinder there should be a bleeder screw just like a brake caliper, perform the bleed procedure just like a brake, pump clutch and open slave bleeder, repeat untill all air is no longer noticed. keep master filled with fluid and top off when completed

hi, you may run out of fluid, find the clutch pump container and fill it up with brake fluid, if you see that is getting better then you have to bleede it out, hope it helps.

How do I bleed the slave cylinder for a 1992 Ford F350?

the best way is with two people one to pump the pedal and hold it down while the other person lets out the air.when alone the drip bleeding method works good crack the bleeder and let it drip slowly with the master cylinder full or just spend 40 bucks on a brake bleeding kit,comes with instructions

2003 Ford Ranger-5 Speed. At times is very hard to get into gear

Your clutch is not releasing all the way. (Assuming the problem is not internal to the transmission) Bleed the system. If that doesn't work, rebuild the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder and bleed again.

Changeed the flywheel and hydraulic throtle baring / clutch slave now wont go in to gear grinds bad any answers

You have air in the hydraulic system, sometimes there is a funky bleeding routine. I hade a Ford Ranger and you had to pump up the clutch master cylinder before connecting it to the slave cylinder, it took a couple of tries but it did work in the end.
