Icon4 Help... Clutch/Transmission Problems?!

Hey guys/gals,

I will give you as much info as I can. About two weeks ago I get in my truck, start it up and put it in reverse. When I went to stop and go forward the the stupid thing did not want to stop! So I shut the truck off and it was fine.

The other day it did the same thing but now I have to 'pump' the clutch to get it to disengage the transmission. I checked the fluid level in the resivor and it was a little low so I topped it off. Question, is there a bleeder for the upper clutch master cylinder? If not, has anyone here changed one? I looks like it will be a pain in the rear...

Not knowing much about this sorta thing I am applying for your help. The power ranger is a '03 with a 4.0/6 100k+ miles.

O Lord my God, was there no help for the widows son?
