2000 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual

the slave cylinder is not responding to bleeding procedure. No matter how long you pump the peddle there 's no pressure build up. It worked ok before the clutch was replaced, but now it acts like it has a vapor lock. Can you help figure out my next move please?
Do you

BLEEDING procedure
1. Using Disconnect Tool (T88T-70522-A), disconnect quick connect coupler. Clean area around reservoir cap. Fill reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Using small screwdriver, depress internal mechanism of male quick connect coupling to open valve. Slowly depress clutch pedal to floor and hold. Release internal mechanism of coupling to close valve. Repeat procedure 4 times.

2. Close reservoir and reconnect coupling. Rapidly depress clutch pedal 5-10 times and wait 1-3 minutes. Repeat procedure 3 additional times. Place hose on bleeder screw to prevent brake fluid from entering bellhousing. Loosen bleeder screw.

3. Place light pressure on clutch pedal and open bleeder screw. Maintain pressure until pedal contacts floor. Close bleeder screw while pedal is fully depressed. DO NOT allow pedal to return before bleeder screw is fully closed. Recheck fluid level. Apply 27-44 lbs. (12-20 kg) of force to clutch pedal while tightening bleed screw.

4. Test system operation by starting vehicle, depressing clutch and placing gearshift lever in Reverse. Depress clutch pedal to within 1/2" (13 mm) of floor. If grinding noise is heard, check for air in system. Repeat bleeding procedure if necessary.
