having a hard time to start the truck

so here is my problem, when i want to start my truck i have to almost push the clutch through the floor in order to get it started! so i use my clutch cancel start almost all the time but its kinda of a pain.

so is there a sensor or some kind of adjustment you have to do, also when i shift gears i cant kinda half push the clutch like i always did( i always owned manual vehicules) i have to push it to the floor and i mean really to the floor

so if anybody knows whats going on let me know

Well you are supposed to push it to the floor for shifting and starring.

Thinking your clutch master cylinder is failing--Easy fix-have you checked the FLUID?
Leaking--low? If you "doulble clutch" does it work BETTER-That is a SURE sign that it will need replacing SOON.
Have not needed to change on my 2003 YET-- did my 91 a couple times--had it a long time.
CHANGE master and slave--just a matter of time for the other to go out.
GOT STRANDED once--had to change the damn thing in a parking lot. MUCH EASIER at home in the driveway.
CHECK fluids FIRST--leaking--replace.
Keep me posted--

Make sure you don't have carpet bunching up behind the pedal or that you didn't pound your firewall so far back that it stops the pedal from going all the way down, there is a sensor that the pedal needs to hit before it'll let you start it

The adjustment bolt nut could be loose too--by the inside pedal.
I am also assuming that the clutch is good--no slippage--just pedal problems.
