Clutch Problem

What would cause my clutch to not disengage? Like when you push it all the way down the truck is still rolling like im slowly letting out on it.

If the system has air in it, this will keep it from disengaging. You can try bleeding the system, but the way the master cylinder is mounted, it is
extremely hard to get the air out of the back of the master cylinder.

Now is the master cyl the one that comes out of the firewall? And if so where is the slave cyl?

If I do need to bleed the clutch how would I go about doing that?

Yes, the master cylinder is mounted on the firewall, and the slave cylinder is inside the bell housing. One way I've heard that is an effective way of bleeding the system is to remove the c-clip in the back of the master cylinder and purge the system there. Make sure the reservoir is full, and doesn't run dry when this is done.

Mine was a leaking slave cylinder.
Had to replace it and no trouble since.

It is a pain, but; can be done yourself.
