Clutch problems or Motor problems? Or both?

I have a 94 Ford Ranger 2.3 5 speed. My clutch has no tension at all, i have to slam it in to first gear in while at a stop, and if im not on the gas pedal a good bit before i ease off the clutch it will die and take for ever to start back up. It does have a check engine light on, and when it dies its always as im taking off in 1st gear. So i dont know if the problem is the cluthc that i just put in not even 5 months ago or if the the problem is in the motor.... Any suggestions?

Have you kept an eye on the clutch fluid? Being low would make the petal almost tension less. That is I'm assuming 94 has a hydrolic clutch

Did you bench bleed the clutch before you put it in?

Well if he only replaced te clutch there's nothing to bench bleed. Sounds like a possible air bubble. If you disconnected the slave cylinder from the hydraulic line when the transmission was removed, air could be in the system from not bleeding or not bleeding enough. To my knowledge and experience, If the master or slave was replaced, then both should be bench bled before bleeding the entire system (hooked up).
