I'll bet that this has been addressed before but I'm new here and I missed it. The clutch on my '90 V6 5 speed pickup is not releasing. With the pedal to the floor it's sometimes hard or impossible to put in gear. Once in gear, however, I allow the pedal to come up appx 2" before the clutch starts to engage. I bled/flushed the system and that seemed to help for a while but it's doing it again. Any thoughts?

Tom,

This may be a long shot, but you might want to check it out.

A while ago, my truck got difficult to shift. I had trouble getting it into 1st, 3rd, and 5th gears, and it would pop out of these gears easily. It seemed to be slowly getting worse and worse.

It turned out the bushing (seat) that sits under the shift lever was starting to disintegrate. I had to pull the shift lever to replace the bushing (about a $20 part, IIRC).

Tom,
You should probably get a clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder overhaul kits or remanufactured or new cylinders, that should eliminate most causes for the problem.
