1994 Ford Explorer 4x4 sport: Where is the clutch master cylinder located, how can you tell if it is bad, and if bad, how do you replace it?
p.S. I recently changed the transmission and slave cylinder, at that time the clutch and pressure plate was in good condition and not in need of replacing. The vehicle (after 5,000 miles of driving on the new transmission) will not shift in or out of gears without forcing, and if in gear, pressing down on the clutch will not allow the car to roll freely. Just before the vehicle experienced this condition, it would whine in gears 1, 2, 3, and 5 when put in gear. This was the exact same symptoms that led me to replace the transmission in the first place. Besides the clutch master cylinder, what else could the problem be?

Do you have any play in the clutch pedal? Are you pushing the pedal all the way to the floor. Could need adjusting. Make sure that the linkage is working.
You need a little play in the pedal, but not too much. Your clutch is not releasing. Is your master cyl on the fire wall full, it should be to the left looking toward the firewall beside the brake master cyl.
Hope this helps good luck
