SOURCE: SLAVE CYLINDER ISSUES
I thought the 4.9 has a conventional slave cylinder mounted to the exterior of the bell housing?
I am not sure about the 4.9 but I know the 5.0 has an internal slave cylinder, and unfortunately you must remove the transmission to replace it. The slave cylinder is mounted around the input shaft in a complete circle and there is no other way to remove it. You say your transmission is a 5 speed so I am pretty sure the slave cylinder is an internal one.
Have you crawled under it and taken a look at it?

If the seals around the shafts of master and slave are tight, they may be concealing a leak with fluid bypassing the piston seals internal to the two assemblies. Either your master or slave cylinders need to be replaced ot have new seals installed. Once you find the culprit and have installed a replacement, you will have to bleed the lines to evacuate air trap in the lines.

Check all your hydraulic connections for seepage . If you find nothing leaking, check where the rod goes into the master cylinder under the dashboard...If still nothing, I'd change the master cyl, as it is likely internally bypassing and permitting the clutch to release. PS it takesa a special "touch" to shift gears without using the clutch, if you cannot do that don't drive it Till you get it fixed...you will damage synchros and will need to have trans removed and rebuilt. $$$you don't want to spend!!!
