hard to shift

i traded my old car for this 98 ranger. i love the truck, but the kid who owned it before me did some things to it that dont really suit my taste. so...im trying to bring it back to a more stock condition. one of the problems (not made from the kid) is that the clutch pedal feels pretty soft. ive never owned a vehicle with a hydrolic clutch, but this still doesnt feel right. changing gears is annoying. it doesnt shift smooth, it shifts but it sucks. if im at a light, i have to put it in first before i come to a complete stop, or else i have to mess around to get it in there. theres no grinding in the shifts so im guessing that the tranny is fine. supposedly it has a pretty new clutch. the clutch fluid is at the proper level, so im thinking that maybe that fluid needs to be bled. please dont tell me i have to pull the tranny to do this. does anybody have a link or something that explains this procedure? thanks in advance!

And you arent going to like the method to repairing it either. Its in the bellhousing so you have to drop the tranny to get too it
