Go to a more experienced repair shop, one that specializes in transmissions. Someone that says "maybe this, maybe that, I dunno" really doesn't know, and should be avoided at all cost.

Sounds like the clutch plate or pressure plate, or both, are either
1) worn out and need replacement, or (MORE LIKELY)

Make sure you are depressing thew clutch pedal as far to the floor as you can when you are having this problem.

It is entirely possible your driver's seat is too far back, and you're just not "getting there" with that pedal.

My clutch is barely engaging even when depressed all the way to the floor. Can it be adjusted or dose it need a clutch replacement?

I would try adjusting the clutch master such that the point of engagement at the pedal, is further from the floor. This will effectively increase the travel of the clutch slave and possibly solve your problem. The clutch master pushrod should have an adjustment behind the pivot at the pedal bracket. Usually a lock nut has to be loosened off a little and then the rod screwed out of it's holder to effectively lengthen it.

I think your clutch may need adjusting - it sounds like its not completely disengaging when you depress the pedal all the way.
Adjust it out slightly so that it disengages fully and you should be fine.
Hope this helps, Sherwin

You need to check your clutch master cylinder reservour, not your brake cylinder. It is located approx in front of the clutch pedal, outboard of the brake cylinder. If it is low, you need to inspect for leaks around it, the lines connecting it to the clutch slave cylinder that is mounted on the transmission.

There is a safety switch off of the clutch pedal so you don't start it with it in gear, and the clutch out. This is adjustable,and sounds like is your problem. Look under your dash for a small switch that is acuated by the pedal.

Hydraulic clutch grinding from 1st to 2nd - Toyota 1985 Pickup

Yes, your clutch might be worn and/or out of adjustment or the trans is worn. Your clutch may be fine also. Toyota's have a problem with there shifter bushings and seats. They brake and crack also causing shifting problems. And some times only one gear depending on the condition.If yours is broken,crack or damaged, you can find the parts from Toyota and there a whole lot cheaper than a clutch. Also I recommend adjusting the clutch if possible. Not all are adjustable. Check your clutch fluid.

Clutch slipping

first i would try adjusting the clutch cable because commonly people with think that they're clutch is going out when really just the cable has gotten stretched....try adjusting that first and if that works then you should be fine for another couple thousand miles but if you want to not have to worry bout it for awhile i would just replace teh clutch assembly....usually ranges from $200 to $450 depending on the clutch set and the mechanic that does the work for you. Let me know what happens. :)
