Question about 2001 Ford Focus
No leaks no pedal force . How do I bleed the hydrolic system ?
Get a friend to help. Press clutch down to floor and hold, have your friend loosen the line at the slave cylinder, or clutch actuator under the car enough that fluid squirts out. Have him tighten the line back up. Release the clutch and press back to the floor again. Have your friend repeat the process as before. (loosen to let fluid squirt out, then tighten back up) Release the pedal. Repeat this process untill there are no air pockets left in the line. NOTE: if your clutch pedal fails to return to the top, simply pop it back up with your hand/foot, wait a few seconds, then depress to floor again for another bleeding.

First remove the clutch reservoir top. Make sure the rubber stopper/bladder is in the cap when removed. Next locate the clutch line that goes into the tranny just aft of the bell housing. There should be a bleed screw, if so open it slightly. If no screw, than loosen the line where it attatches in. Next fill the clutch reservoir and watch till it leaks out on the tranny end. Once thats noticed, close the screw/line and recap reservoir. pump clutch pedal, and repeat bleed steps at least once more to ensure all air is out. remember to fill clutch fluid up to operating levels.

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

pull up clutch pedal, all the way up. now fill fluid to top, now open the slave cylinder, it should bleed just with gravity. let it drip for a few minutes or until you have to fill it up 2 times. Make sure that when the pedal is all the way up, that the piston is all the way back on the master cylinder. look up at the back of the master cylinder under the dashl. there is an adjustment. you want just very little play between the pedal rod and the piston, just enough that there is some play. but you need some play there. if there isnt any play, adjust the rod.
