    The bleeder valve is on a stalk that sticks out of the slave cylinder which is attached to the clutch release bearing inside the bell housing, I will post a picture let meknow if u can see it, u do know that if u need to bleed the clutch u need a new slave cylinder which means pulling the trans out. This is the part u need.

If there is no bleedr, the loosen the lie and get fluid to at lest that point. The bleeder, not having onwe is unlikely, no offemce, just make sure. If the bleeder is anywhere it dhould or would be at a point higher than the line on the slave cylinder down on the bell housing. Open it and let gravity takr over unti the fluid drips steasdy. Slowly depress clutch once to get fluid moving.If long term non usem The cylinders, master and slave, good luck may have leakage needing replacement.l good luc and be careful. be sure brakes are set and vehicle is in neutral when underneath. Engine need not be running.

After driving down bumpy road my clutch does not seem to disengage, after it sits awhile it works fine, 2009 ford ranger

The hydraulic fluid level in the clutch master cylinder may be low. The rough ride can cause the fluid to fill with air bubbles. If the fluid has air in it, it will not compress properly and therefore the clutch will not disengage.

1998 Ford Ranger Truck Clutch problems

I remember a problem with the Ranger Series involving the hydraulic assisted clutch. There was a special refill procedure for a few Year Models. If the hydraulics leaked during storage an air bubble could occur and they are next to impossible to get fresh fluid back to fill the void. And it would not fix the leak.

I remember a video showing all the components fastened to a display board to train Mechanics on the extra effort needed to bleed this system.

I would say to search the Web under a topic like "Ford Ranger hydraulic clutch bleeding" to find the article. Even if you replace the current clutch cylinder, it may be no less difficult to refill. Your mechanic may need the info you find.

What does it mean when the clutch petal goes all the way to the floor in my 2003 suzuki aerio

Your clutch fluid reservoir may need brake fluid-yes, it uses brake fluid as a hydraulic fluid. Check reservoir on the firewall. It will sit beside the brake master cylinder. The reservoir sits atop the clutch master cylinder.
If it was dry, the clutch may need bleeding down at the slave cylinder on the transmission housing-where the clutch fork sticks out of the transaxle.. Open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, and have someone slowly press clutch down. Keep bleeding until a steady stream of fluid comes out when clutch is pressed. Then close bleed valve, check clutch operation-pedal should have some pressure on it now.

My 1994 ford rangers clutch pedal just lost all pedal

There are two types of clutch actuators. (Mechanical & Hydtraulic)
A. For mechanical type,- Check the clutch cable as
this could be cut from wear and tear. This is easy
to replace. You can find this connected to the
pedal and the clutch lever near the transmission.
B.For hydraulic operated - Check the level of the
hydraulic oil at the cylinder of the hydraulic
actuator under the hood. This actuator is
directly connected to the pushrod driven by the
pedal. If the actuator is leaking, you have buy
a repair kit (Hyraulic clutch repair kit for Ford
Ranger 1994 MOdel.) These items must be
repaired to activate your pedal.

89 ranger manual trans slipping already replace clutch and slave cylinder? still slipping any help?

Manual transmissions do not slip ie. when the gears mesh, there is no slip unless they strip out and make an awful noise and will not pull henceforth.

You probably still have a slipping clutch plate against the flywheel. You need to adjust the clutch petal linkage shaft to allow the pressure plate to be release from the thrust bearing, ie shorten the shaft length.. If you and most likely you do just have the clutch release slave cylinder that releases the clutch when you apply the petal. You need to bleed the slave cylinder of any excess fluid or air that may have entered the line if you opened it at any point. You need to bleed it as you would a break cylinder and this should fix ya.
good luck.
good luck
