Slave or master cylinder?
I just bought a 04 3.0 5sd ranger with 71k miles yesterday, and has a clutch issue. It has maybe 2 or 3 inches of play in the cluch pedal, and it was releasing right at the floor, causing it to either not go in gear when stoped or be really hard. I bled it 3 or 4 times last night, and that helped it a bit, but it still releases close to the floor and has play in the pedal. Its got fluid and no leaks. Do ya'll think its the master or the slave....I know all about the slaves going bad, but just figured id ask. Also, it may have the original clutch so could some of that play be caused by a worn clutch? My last ranger had a nice firm clutch pedal from the very top to the floor. And what brand is the best for the slave and master cylinder?
