Question about 2000 Ford Focus
You have seal bypass on either the master cylinder or slave cylinder, the fact that you can pump the pedal and get a bit of pressure back leads me to think it is the master cylinder.
The quickest way to check is pull aside the boot that sits on the end of the cylinder and around the push rod, if you see fluid inside the boot then obviously that cylinders seals are gone.
I still think your problem is in the master cylinder, if it was the slave all the pumping in the world would net get pedal pressure back like that, the fluid would just leak past the piston seal and drain out.
