2001 Ford Ranger -Clutch no pressure

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger 4x4 The clutch went out, it was going to the floor, I replaces Slave Cyclinder..nothing. Bought a clutch kit replaced clutch and pressure plate..still nothing. No pressure in the clutch after bleeding.

Is there something else I should be looking at or could this just be a problem with bleeding? I have read allot of people have problems.

I have replaced the slave cylinder before and had no problems with bleeding the line. I need to get this truck on the road asap..

Any help would be appreciated.

You have replaced everything in the bell housing = clutch disc, pressure plate, and slave cylinder. Aside from bleeding, the only other thing is the master on the firewall.

Some techs advise removing the master from the fire wall and tipping the master cylinder while bleeding. Then reinstall it. Others have had good luck simply parking the truck on an incline while bleeding the system. I've never had problems with the bleeding, but either way may simplify it in a problem situation.

did you replace the clutch mastercylinder which is located under the dash?.The workshop manual advises not to open the bleeder valve on this system.when everything is replaced it states to pump the clutch pedal approx.15 times it is self bleeding.
The master cylinder on the firewall is for brakes only.
good luck.
