The problem is up at the Master Cyl............It comes ou of the firewall and points DOWN at about a 45 deg angle.....The reservoir is remote and the hose is set to the lowest point of the cyl...........The tube TO the slave is 180 deg around facing bottom...........
Take the master cly OFF the firewall.......tilt it so that both inlet and outlet are the HIGHEST point of the cyl........Gravity bleed or vacula the slave.........then reinstall the master
I know it sounds like a lot of work but it's the easiest way to clear the air out of Ranger/Explorer hydraulics

You might have to try to adjust the freedom of clutch pedal,
The noise during shifting can be adressed to exessive wear clutch parts or again it might be a sign that indicates the not complete enabling the calutch
To find out what is causing the noise, set the parking brake, place the vehicle in neutral and start the engine.
If you hear growling or grinding noises when the clutch is engaged, the cause is the transmission input shaft bearing.
A squealing sound that occurs when the clutch pedal is depressed and held is usually caused by a bad pilot bearing or bushing.
A chirping noise that intensifies when the pedal is slowly depressed would indicate a bad release bearing.
If you hear chirping while idling in neutral and the noise goes away when the pedal is slowly depressed, the fork/pivot ball contact point is making the noise
Hope that helps.

THERE IS A SPECIAL TOOL THAT CAN BE RENTED OR PURCHASED AT YOUR LOCAL AUTO PARTS STORE. IT CONSISTS OF A LARGE OPEN END WRENCH AND A LONG FORK-LIKE TOOL THAT GRABS THE NUTS ON THE FAN SO THAT THE WRENCH CAN LOOSEN THE LARGE NUT THAT HOLDS THE FAN CLUTCH TO THE FAN. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING. P.S. BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE NEW CLUTCH TO FIND OUT WHICH DIRECTION THE THREADS GO. SOME OF THESE ARE LEFTY TIGHTY, SOME ARE LEFTY LOOSEY. GOOD LUCK
