On my high e-string i can't get a good bend. Whenever i bend it gets a muted sounds. Is this because of old strings or some other problem??

Your guitar probably needs to be set up. Take it to a luthier for a fret levelling and neck straightening.
new strings couldnt possibly hurt... try using lighter strings and get a set-up.

maybe youre lifting your fingers up a little when you bend and muting the string?

i would much rather go to the ****ing hospital and have them surgically reattach my penis instead of slap some silly puddy on there and call 'er "mangled johnny"
I had that problem before...I cleaned my fretboard and everything was fine. It's worth a try.
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow in the morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust
Did anybody think to ask "Hey, what's your fingerboard radius?"?
Ask me, the hobbyist luthier! "Cause I know my stuff.
