2002 Ford Explorer Sport: This may be an easy fix but I'm still stuck. I just replaced the clutch master cylinder on recommendation from Ford. Gears were not engaging properly after extended driving. According to them my master cylinder was losing pressure and needed replacing with a new one. I put a brand new one in and am at the point of trying to restore pressure in the hydraulic system. The slave seems to have a bleeder, but when I open it nothing comes out, totally dry. When I pump the clutch pedal with the bleeder open, still nothinng comes through. I have tried pumping the clutch pedal repeatedly hoping to send fluid through the system and build up pressure. But no luck. The truck was drivable before but started failing after longer operation. Is this Explorer Clutch bled differently? Could the new master cylinder (or slave.) Be jacked? Any suggestions? Thanks.
have the same problem?
