Is there a better way to bleed the air out? I have been researching for a while and only see the hand held vacuum being used.
Forgot to ask. What Brand Clutch?

I also read about master cylinder problems, mine is good I only have 25k on my car. I actually called Mcleod about the shim for the slave and they said no. I won t be dealing with it for yrs I dont have patience like that. I will keep you posted cause I'm gonna keep trying to bleed it then drop it off at a mustang shop.

This is the setup I used McLeod Hydraulic Clutch Bleeder Kit. It still took some pumps to get it all bleed out. I installed the RST clutch and flywheel.

I Actually just had a very similar situation on my 07. Turned out to be my master cylinder. The way I checked it was by disconnecting my clutch line from the slave and putting a vacuum pump on the resivior. You should not be able to pull vacuum with clutch pedal In fully raised position. I was pulling vacuum constant. Put in a new master and problem solved.

I think if your changing a clutch after say 50k I would change both master and slave cylinder at that time.

My car is at the dealer today to see if they can bleed more air out of the system. If not Im goin to be ordering another new slave and also a master cylinder so the whole system is new. Im tired of not being able to drive my summer car in the summer.

Picked the car up at the dealer friday. They bled the clutch some more and it definitely is better. It goes into gear but sometimes it still gives me trouble. Im gonna drive it around for a bit and if it gets worse I'll try a new master cylinder then another slave . This is taking the fun out of the car.
