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.

I have a 2003 Ford Focus lx and the clutch pedal has no resistance on it and it will not go into gear. Please help I need this car to get to work


Check the clutch fluid level. It will be a small reservoir close to the brake master cylinder. If the clutch reservoir is empty, add fluid.( brake fluid ) You may have to perform a bleed procedure at the clutch slave cylinder attached to the transmission Pump the clutch pedal several times and have someone open the bleeder screw until fluid comes out and the clutch pedal has its resistance back

'03 2.5L Ford Ranger Standard Trans, Engine at times won't turn over, does not click, battery is fully charged.


Neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal may be going out. Its a $15 fix. It tells the computer if the clutch is engaged. If it goes out its like trying to start with out pushing in the clutch, wont turn over at all. Hope this helps.

We have a 94 manual transmission Ford Ranger located in a cold climate. All of a sudden, when you step on the clutch pedal there is no resistance. Suggestions on what this might be?


you need to check the fluid level in the hydraulic clutch master cylinder under the hood,it is probably low or the slave cylinder in the bell housing that pushes the throw out bearing in is leaking.

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.
