The clutch pedal can be adjusted inside the truck under the dash. You need a 10mm and a 12mm open wrenches to make the adjustments.there is a 3-4 inch threaded rod that you loosen the 12mm lock nut then you can turn the rod with your fingers or the 10mm wrench. Turn the rod so it gets longer toward in the direction of the engine. then start the truck and check how the clutch feels. when it feels right then tighten up the 12mm lock nut. If this does not solve the problem then you may need a new clutch.

Check the fluid, check for leaks, if there is replace the cylinder or hose and bleed the lines of any air. There a two cylinders, the master cylinder(on the fire wall not far from the brake cylinder) and the slave cylinder(on the gearbox) i think this maybe your problem.

I have a 1989 Toyota Pickup 22RE Engine 5 Speed Manual Transmission - The problem is that the clutch slips on higher gears especially on cruise control when I encounter a hill. Can you tell me if there is...

If it's a hydraulic operated clutch, as I think it is, then no, there is no adjustment. Only the cable operated clutches were adjustable. But there is a clutch pedal height and free-play adjustment that needs to be correct. Freeplay distance is 3/16 to 5/8 inch, adjusted at the pedal end of clutch pushrod. I don't know the pedal height for your pickup (you'll have to ask some toyota person), but the adjustment is made near top of pedal where it contacts the stopper bolt.

Whats the problem when the truck wont start and i tap the clutch slave cylinder and it does start? but then that wont work anymore. what do i do?

I'd take a look up near where clutch pedal pivots for a switch similar to brake light switch, that has to be depressed or released by pedal when pushed. Probably a safety feature to insure vehicle won't start unless clutch in, just in case it's in gear. May be adjustable, but if not, or adjustment doesn't help, replace it.

I can start my 1998 mazda b2500 pickup truck but it will not shift into gear

The truck must be a standard trans? If you can shift it with the motor not running, but not with it running, then most likely the clutch master cyl must be low on brake fluid. It must have a leak. Sometimes you can add brake fluid, then pump the clutch pedal slowly and you might be ok. But you will need to get it repaired.

1991 mighty max, 5 speed manual ... when going up a hill, motor seems to race as if clutch is slipping, only symptom, no noise, no smell. once truck has been run, does not do this .... truck has 94,000...

if it has a cable for clutch you need to adjust it. if its hydralic then the master cylinder may be not bleeding off properly when cold or slave sticks when cold. you need to measure pedal free play that is how far pedal goes down before resistance is felt there needs to be 1/2 to 1 inch or so free play to make sure that the release bearing isnt riding on the pressure plate [would be the same as riding the clutch] the 1/2 inch higher than brake pedal probem can be adjusted on the pedal stop but shouldnt be the problem. of course the clutch could be just plain worn out to.

1991 Toyota pickup 4WD clutch slipping

There is an adjustment for the clutch pedal under the dash where the push rod goes thru the firewall. There is only aprx. 1/2" of adjustment so be careful when making an adjustment, if your clutch is slipping then you need to shorten the throw of the push rod.

No there isn't any adjustment,and if you have good pedal pressure there isn't any point in trying to bleed the hydraulic system.

Soft/floppy clutch

This is probably a hydraulic clutch. check for fluid at the clutch master cylinder, if empty check for a leak at either master or slave cylinder (on the side of the transmission) if fluid is present in the reservoir try loosing the fitting on the slave and have an assistant pump the pedal while adding fluid ( this is called "bleeding", just like with a brake system). don't allow the master cyl. reservoir to run dry. Hope this helps
