When that happened to my ranger just a week ago, before we changed out the slave cylinder we changed the master cylinder and bled that and its working good again. I kinda dodged the bullet of the slave cylinder.

does the black thing in the resivoir always stick down like a cup or is it suppose to compress? sorry my explanations arent really the best but im trying and the slave cylinder is getting plenty of fluid it just wont build up pressure some guy said break the fitting loose on the master cylinder there is probably a lotof air in there? could that be true?

It could be true, and im not sure about the black thing in the reservoir. I'd start with bleeding the master cylinder
