1993 Toyota 4x4 truck. Why doesn't it roll when I let the clutch out?

When you "let the clutch out" I'm assuming that you are removing your foot from the clutch pedal. That essentially connects the transmission to the engine.
The vehicle will not roll for several possible reasons:
1) The transmission is in gear and the engine is not running.
2) The parking brake is ON.
3) The brake pedal is depressed.
4) The brake shoes (or pads) are stuck or rusted to the drums or rotors.
5) It is still sitting on blocks
6) It has 4 flat tires
7) It is stuck in a mud bog

Swapping from and automatic to a manual transmission in a 99-04 mustang 3.8L

cam it -double turbo it and upgrade the chip and you will get almost as much as a partially worked V8. As to the swap it would be easier to get a manual rolling shell and put all your mechanics in it as to change the body of an automatic to a manual. Clutch pedal and all the brackets---clutch master and slave cylinder and lines . Cut a hole in the floor tunnel to take the gear lever. different rear engine mounts and cross member--- different tail shaft. Good idea if you have lots and lots of dollars, are really mechanically minded, have lots of time and perseverance and want a car that will do you proud and not be a piece of half finished junk. Not a good idea if you are none of the above. However if you want a car that goes , crank, rods .pistons , worked heads , a properly designed cam, valves chip , upgraded injectors twin turbos ( each at 2.5 litre capacity ) turning the engine to equal a 5 litre capacity engine, 2.000 RPM stall converter , 3" exhaust system. Built professionally should set you back around $10.000 American and you will have a car that you can be proud of. Your choice.

Howto bleed clutch full procedure Nissan 300zx twin turbo

Not a real big deal , except there is an extra bleeder that is difficult to find. When the line leaves the master cylinder it travels behind some comedic covers on the firewall, follow the line from master c till it intersects with a block. Sometimes the extra bleeder will be directly on the block and sometimes it will be at the end of a line near the passenger side headlight that is connected to this line. So now that you have found the line i would do a gravity bleed first . Fill the resevoir and open bleeder at transmission. When it runs clear ( no bubbles) close it. Now bleed the accumalator block the same way. make sure the resevoir is kept full all the time. Now have someone pump pedal slowly and with full strokes 4 times. crack the block bleeder first while the pedal is being held to the floor . Then close it making sure the pedal is not released while bleeder is open. repeat procedure on slave bleeder and on block bleeder till trans will go in gear with the engine running smoothly.

1996 nissan maxima clutch sticks to floor

yes, Briong the pedal up where it belongs, then open an fill your master cylider. Then go below and open the bleeder intil the fluid runs/drips steady and free of any bubbles. Do not pump the pedal. When only fluid comes out, tighten/close the bleeder and give it a try. Good Luck. If peal dives again, replace the master cylinder.

87 RX7 - smoking exhast for several miles then stops

well,when you turn off the rotary it leaves oil and when you start it up, it burns off the oil you left causeing blueish smoke. same problem with flooding,when you drive short distance , warmup incorrectly or if use synthetic fix the cause of flooding(i have the same vehicle and problems)let it warm up for at least 15 min.there is also a fuel pump wire next to the fuse box located above the brake pedal.then you tap a switch from the fuel pump to your interior.the reoson being is so whenever you come to a stop to park flip the swith.that allows the rotar to burn the fuel left in the pump witch will make your rx7 to stutter out and die.when you start it back up ,flip the swicth back on and it will take an extra second for it to crank over.1 more thing,check your oil every 2-3 fills on gas and change oil every 2000 miles.also redline it at least one a week. i hope i just solved your problem because i love my 87 non turbo and know how you feel.if you want to look at cheap aftermarket parts for rx7 then go to is a guy that test parts to tell people wats good and cheap for rx7s.i would recomend roll cage and 5 point harness-seats.good luck with your rx7 bro
