Hello, I'm Chris.
I will do my best to answer your question fast and accurate using the info you have provided. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.


Here is how Ford states to bleed the clutch, download HERE. I choose to use a homemade reservoir cap made of rubber with a hole in it and a hand held vacuum pump. I pull the system into a 20 in hg vacuum then pump the pedal fast 10 times. Now release the vacuum and pump the pedal 10 times fast. I do this alternating back and forth till its resolved.

In the event your issue continue then I recommend a Ford kit which includes the slave and master and hose and reservoir, ready to install. You put it all on, and hit the pedal 3 times and its ready to go since its pre-bleed.
