Sounds like you may have air trapped in the system.Try this trick.Remove the bleeder screw from the slave cylinder.Place your finger over the hole to act as a one way valve, allowing air and fluid to escape but not allowing air to get sucked back in.Then have someone stroke the pedal slowly making full strokes, keep an eye onn the resevoir so that it does not get low and fill the system with more air.If there is room turn a bottle of brake fluid upsidedown in the resevoir to keep it from running dry.After you have run a bottle of fluid through it replace the bleeder and pump and bleed the old fashioned way a few times.If there is air it should be gone.If clutch will still not disengage the something is wrong with clutch plate and or pressure plate.Good luck!

Manual trans is stuck in 1 gear

This actually happened to me in my '91 taurus SHO. As they towed it off, the driver looked under the car, and noticed the gearshift linkage had slipped off. He reconnected it right there (no tools required other than we had the front of the car lifted off of the ground) and I drove home.
