Clutch Issues

Lately my clutch has been feeling very odd. It has been real spongy and easy to push down while sometimes its hard as a rock and feels how it should what could be the issue? My fluid is normal but looks dirty and the clutch works like it should its just spongy. So what im asking is your thoughts on what this problem could be obviously it sounds like the pressure so how should I fix this. Thanks for the help in advance

you prolly have some air in the system. have it bled at a shop cuz ranger clutches are a pain in the *** to bleed, and your prolly gonna have to bleed it 4 or so times. bleed it and drive for a day or two and repeat. if its not that then have your slave and master cylinder replaced. if they replace your master cylinder the replace the slave cuz a new master will be too much for an old slave cylinder.

Dirty fluid could actually cause these symptoms. How dirty is it? Dark brown? I'd do a flush and get all the old **** out and brand new fluid in before you start to tear into the cylinders.
