SOURCE: replaced slave cylinder 2004 ford ranger 4x4 still no pedal

I had the same problem with my 1995 1500 p.u.. Assuming your clutch slave cylinder is the concentric style. If not disregard. I hate that set up. what the hell was wrong with the old outside of the bell housing slave/ mechanical style fork and throw out bearing bla bla? Its because ford as well of the rest of the lovely auto makers decided long ago to make them as hard as hell to repair on you own. Ive been told theres a spsecial tool just for this bleeding task. Pobably. They make those tools to sell to us so they can further profit from us poor suckers.Also I wonder on your model if its concentric, does it have the difficult sized bleeder valve as mine did? or have they gotten a little more user friendly? doubt it. In my case as this style is a closed system I followed the bleeding intructions to a tee. That did get alot more clutch action for me, after 15 attempts.However I do believe the problem after looking and further inspection under the dash? look up under the dash and inspect your pedal rack and frame. I found mine was cracked and the cause of poor aliegnment. check for that rite away. I located another rack but before I got around to replacing it, the tranny blew, and the trucks sitting on my dads property. Its still a danmed good truck and one of these days I will get on it again. Anyway up untill the tranny blew I was never able to get more than half the distance from the pedal and besides the rack problem I would love to know the bleeding anser, that is if Im off target. Going to be up against it again when I replace that transmission. Hope this helps a little. Food for thought maybe? If you find out something more helpful post it so I will know too.

SOURCE: fitted new clutch and slave cylinder in 2.5 v6

crawl up under the dashboard & look where the clutch pedal rod goes through the firewall. look for traces of brake fluid at the rubber boot of the rod. a clutch master cylinder normally will leak to the inside of the vehicle & down the firewall when it fails. Replace as required & bleed clutch system using the bleeder valve that should be on the slave asy.

SOURCE: Need 93 ford F250 clutch diagram to understand how it works

It must a Diesel? Exterior slave cylinder? The double, or split, flywheel has is made of two major parts. One part is bolted to the crankshaft and there is a bearing that supports the other part of the flywheel that pressure plate bolts to. There are cushioning springs in the flywheel instead of in the clutch disc, it's not a very good set-up and they are prone to failure. "LUK Clutch Company", makes a solid flywheel and regular clutch for those trucks, there might other companies too. The clutch works the same way as any other clutch but, the reason it pushes hard is because the sleave that the release bearing (throw out bearing) rides on, is most likely galled or dry. That sleave is made of aluminum and they have a nasty habit of getting messed up, I don't remember if there are 3 or 4 bolts that hold that sleave on the front of the trans. At any rate that sleave is easy to replace once the trany is out of the vehicle, check the arm for wear and cracks too. If you don't want to pull the trans to fix it right, you might be able pull the boot out that goes around the clutch release arm enough to squirt some oil up on that sleave, that might get you by for a while.

SOURCE: Clutch fails to dis-engage clutch. 1986 F250 3/4ton 7.5 2wd

Make sure the slave cylinder body is attached firmly, then bleed the air out of the hydraulics--similar to bleeding brake lines. Watch the clutch mechanics while someone operates the clutch, (engine off) you should see definite movement. If you get movement and no clutch action, you may have to reappraise your clutch installation. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: replacing a master and slave clutch cylinders on a

remove the battery and the battery tray,the fluid line and the two bolts that hold on the clutch master and may need to bleed the new one at the slave cylinder by having someone depress the pedal and letting the air out and tighten the line again before they release the pedal,but i think by pushing the pedal up and down a few times it will be ok. if the shifter wont go into gear or the car starts to move when only slightly moving the pedal of the floor then bleed it.

How do I bleed a external clutch slave cylinder with no bleed screw on a 95 ford f250 turbo diesel

Need to remember that air rises. When replacing slave cylinder first hook everything up and bleed using the nut on the connecting line at the slave, then slowly depress and release pedal making sure to keep plenty of fluid in the reservoir, then after sitting a bit, tap on slave cylinder, line from bottom all the way up to the master, then loosen the nut connecting the line to the master and allow any air there to escape. Repeat whole process if needed.

Cluch has no pressure i need to know how to refill the trany

Try CHECKING AND refilling the master cylinder for the clutch on the firewall under the hood, it looks like a small brake master cylinder tank. Here is a picture of the Clutch Hydraulic Master cylinder. The plastic tank can be black as well. If the tank is full go under the truck on the driver side and check the clutch Slave cylinder to make sure the rod coming out of it is attached to the clutch release arm. Here is a picture of the slave cylinder.

F250 1995 clutch slave cylinder

Welcome to Fixya

You didn't mention in your question what you want to do with the clutch slave cylinder. Anyway, if you want to replace it, please see procedure below:

Since it is a pressurized system, remember to bleed out the fluid before completing the job so that you remove any dangerous air pockets in the lines. Remove the connector to the clutch, the tube that runs hydraulic fluid from the master cylinder, and the two bolts connecting the cylinder to the bell housing. Take the new slave cylinder, fill it accordingly with fluid, re-attach it, run the fluid through the system, and test the resulting pressure.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My 1992 Ford F250 pickup when you push in the clutch it doesnt disengage the gears and doesnt shift. Is there a adjustment to tighten up the clutch pedal

Those clutches aren't adjustable at all. Sounds to me like either the Clutch Master Cylinder is bad (or could even need fluid) or the Slave Cylinder is bad. If it needs fluid there's possibly a leak between the 2.

My 1991 ford f250 can not shift into gear it what would the problem be

Is you clutch working. block wheels set parking brake don't start.
Have someone push on the clutch pedal. Look for rod to move on side of bell housing. Okay not working.
Check you clutch master Cylinder for fluid.
Fill and pump pedal slow to remove air from system. If this don't work try opening bleeder on slave cylinder attach a hose to bleeder and place other end of hose in a jar 1/2 filled with fluid. Now pump slow pedal very slow. (Don't run out of fluid or over flow jar.) If fluid is black it is 1 sign you may need to rebuild or replace master cylinder or slave cylinder.
If rod was moving you could have a bad clutch. If with engine off can you put it in gear?
If have an ""automatic"" your switch on your brake pedal are may have gone bad.

1992 Ford F250. The clutch pedal will not release fully. I can't get it in gear! Really cold here in Nevada, does that have anything to do with it?

you need to blead out the clutch cylinder,same as brakes get someone to pump the clutch pedal up and down and then hold the peddle down and crack the bleader screw on the clutch slave this until all the air is out .If this does not work then you need to replace the clutch.

1996 f250 5 speed manual. Clutch must be to the floor before I can get it into gear. Is this normal?

No, your clutch is controlled by a slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. Check your clutch master cylinders fluid level first, if its high, your clutch is starting to wear down. Next, on the bottom of your transmission there will be an inspection cover, remove and check with a suitable flashlight if the clutch slave cylinder is leaking, if so, replace both clutch master cylinder and cslave cylinder. Stay away from slave cylinders that you have to build yourself such as those at autozone! Bleeding of these components will be required.
