Hi there, I have a 2003 Ranger and its was parked for about a month, Istared it today and let it warm up and put in frist gear but would not go, I checked the fliud it was low I filled it up, try it again and the pedel went to the floor and can't put in gear, I try bleeding the screw and there was some air in there but, I got some of the pedel back, still wont go in gear. Slave cylinder is in the transmission.I dont know what to do!

This sounds silly but make sure the rubber insert from the clutch master cover is not stuck in master. Ive done it. Fill with brake fluid and slowly pump the pedal, you should be able to get a pedal unless the slave cylinder is totally gone. Be patient pump pedal slow and see what happens. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

It did this a few times before but came out of it once it warmed up. If slave cylinder is gone is it a big job to change it. Its in side the transmission.I push the pedel down and just before it gets to the floor it get a little stiffer but still will not let me shift.

I think its part of the throw out bearing and you have to remove the transmission. Is brake fluid leaking out of bell housing? If it is you will definately need to replace it. If not keep adding fluid and slowly press the pedal, it should come up.

Yes I see it was a little wet around there but was not leaking on the floor.I took the rubber cover off and looked in side the transmission and I see it is a little wet in there.I tried what you said and its the same, thanks anyway. They told me that it would take 4 and a half hours to fix it is this right. There should be nothing wrong with the clutch because It work fine before that and it would not just go like that with out any warning right?

Yeah 4.5 hours seems reasonable. Just remember, you will have the transmission out. How old is your clutch.(A clutch plate, pressure plate is only around $125) your already there. If its good leave it alone, but if its questionable id spend the extra and put in new clutch. Good luck
