WHEN IM GOING ON THE FREE WAY MY TRUCK DOES JUST FINE BUT WHEN I STOP AT RED LIGHT I PUT IT IN 1ST GEAR AND HOLD MY CLUTCH IN AND MY TRUCK WILL JUMP AND DIE LIKE IM NOT GIVING IT GAS BUT THE CLUTCH IS ALL THE WAY IN. I THINK IT MIGHT BE MY SLAVE CYLINDER BUT I DONT KNOW WHERE TO LOCATE IT AT. I ALSO NEED TO KNOW WHERE THE RESIVOR IS AT TOO.
The slave is an internal type and is located inside the tranny bellhousing. You will need to pull the tranny to access it. The reservoir should be on the driver's side firewall in the engine compartment. The fluid level being low could also cause the problem. If it is low you may have to bleed the clutch line. Check to see if there is fluid leaking from the bellhousing, as that is an indicator of a bad slave cylinder. If you have to replace the slave cylinder, it is a good idea to replace the clutch while you have the tranny out.

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.
Ford : back the truck up 10ft put truck in neutral and disengage four wheel low. (You can't drive in four wheel low cause its a pulling gear and you won't do over 3-5 mph.)
Nissan: start truck see if it idles normal. If so rev motor and check throttle for sticking and check EGR valve make sure its not stuck open or malfunctioning when you drive it..
