F150 CLUTCH PROBLEMS

1998 Ford F-150

Transmission problem
1998 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Manual 141000 miles

For the majority of the time the clutch works correctly, but sometimes the clutch will not disengage untill the pedal is almost completly released. When this happens it quickly releases and I can hear pressure rappidly being released. Also, if I pump the clutch a couple times it will get pretty hard to the point where I cannot press it in anymore. I can get it to make that quick pressure release if I play with it correctly or if I wait for a second I can take off again normally. Just to be sure I did get under the truch and bleed the system at the slave cylinder, but that didnt help. I'm going to bet the master cylinder just needs replaced, but I figured I should double check with someone before I just dug into it.
