hi everyone,
I'm throwing this post up while i search in case someones got an answer off the top of their head. Here's my situation:
89 v6 4x4 186k miles, not sure what if anythings been replaced.
Clutch started making a funky noise the begining of the summer, (throw out bearing? is what everyone said). wasn't shifting too hot so ive just been waitin for it to go basically. The other night i go to back out of a parking spot and the pedal just hits the floor. i was convieniently crooked in a handicap spot:headbang:. I couldnt get it in gear so i shut it down, put it in reverse, started it and parked it out back.
Now its stuck in reverse even with the car off. I've had a clutch go on me before and i could change gears when its off. I took a look at that shifter bushing, doesnt look bad, in one piece that is. So I'm trying to figure out is my tranny messed up too?
I'm gunna take it off to do the clutch... should i be factoring in a rebuild? is something just jammed? any thoughts would be helpful.

An aside, the reason the pedal hit the floor, the rod from the slave cylinder had popped off the fork and was spitting fluid on the ground, i put it back in bled it and now it moves but the clutch is still shot.

If the clutch is shot, there's no reason the trans would be too.
Sounds like you may have pushed the clutch too far.

if the weight of the truck is resting on the gear, it'll be difficult to get out. very likely if you started it in gear and shut if off in gear. normally you'd just push the clutch in. since you can't do that try spinning the engine backwards via the crankshaft bolt, the truck will probably settle a little (IE roll slightly) and you'll be able to get it out of gear once the tensions off the driveline.

Sounds like one of the cylinders went out. add in the cost of a master and slave (and prolly a soft line to be safe). unless the pressure plate implodes or the fork collapses (neither is very likely at all), the parts inside the bellhousing won't cause the pedal to go to the floor
