Default Slave cyl just replaced, no worky!

Greetings all! New to this forum and glad to see I'm not the only one who's had a few issues resolved here. Now, here's my issue...

6 months ago I replaced the clutch in my 2000 Ranger, 3.0L Trailhead Package. The plates were worn out so it was time. Now, ever since then I have had a leak somewhere. Narrowed it down to the slave cylinder. Yesterday I replaced the master cylinder and today I replaced the slave cylinder. Now, while bleeding it, I have gotten all of the air out but it is not building up ANY kind of pressure. It's not even giving me enough to attempt to change gears. I don't have any leaks, I have tried several times to bleed and nothing. Please help!!!

Jimmy

it must have air trapped somewhere, most likely where the big loop is in the line. A couple things to try. First, open the bleeder on the slave and let gravity bleed. Run about 3-5 resivour thru it. If that dont work then try this: get a big syrenge from TSC or similar. This should be one without a needle just a blunt end. Fill with brake fuild. Stick inside resivour down into the hole, force it thru. This will push all the air out of the line. Then follow up with a gravity bleed. It should run a steady stream out the bleeder when all air is out, if it drips or is not solid there is still air in the line.

keep bleeding, even after bench bleeding it took forever to work out the remaining air.. at least 20+ times

Hey guys, thanks! You wouldn't believe the level of frustration I've had the past couple of days with this. Now that I know it's not just me I feel better! Thanks again.
