    hey guys, noob here, i was googling for help and came across the forums. i guess this will be my intro thread and first help me please thread. i have a 96 tacoma, faded red with about 108K on the clock. ran into my first real problem with her recently. the truck was loaned out to my sister (she needed it to move) and against my better judgement i let her use it, when she brought it back the clutch didnt feel quite right, and if i held it depressed at a stoplight, it would release really slow. well i replaced the clutch slave cylinder after some advice from a family friend. inspecting the old one showed that it was sticking a bit. on the test drive though, i came to a stoplight and had the clutch depressed as well as the brake. the motor started to sputter like it wanted to stall, i released the brake and the truck started moving forward with the clutch still depressed. :eek: what would make the clutch engage with the clutch depressed? it shifts fine while driving. sorry for the long post, and any help will be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    did you bleed it to make sure there was no air in it after you replaced the slave cylinder
    if there is air in the system the air will compress and the clutch will not fully disengage

    yes, i bled it and im pretty sure i got all the air out. it was kinda sticking to the floor a bit before i replaced the slave cylinder also if i held it for a while. it seems to engage and disengage fine while driving though.

    hey it really does seem like you need to bleed it more especially if you replaced both the slave and master cylinder
