clutch drama please help!
Hi, I have a 96 ranger 4.0 5 sp with 268,000 miles. I love the truck. It is my daily driver and still runs like new. uses no oil, and i haven't ever really had any problems besides the current clutch issue. I have been having this problem for over a year now. The clutch pedal gets soft and it will not change gears properly(very stiff), eventually it would leak down and not go into gear at all. I could bleed the clutch and it would have perfectly tight pedal and work great for about 3-4 days, then the pedal would go "mushy" again. The funny thing is it never lost fluid! So anyways just got my tax money and had new clutch slave throwout bearing clutch etc(all motorcraft parts) installed hoping it would take care of my problem. It was fine for about a week then it started again! So I bought a clutch master and installed it thinking it had to solve the problem. Bench bled the master installed back in truck then bled the slave. It worked perfect again for about a week, now i have a spungy pedal again! So here I am $700 later and its not a bit better than it was. I have replaced everything besides the black line from the master to the slave. could this be the problem? Getting very frustrated Please Help!
