Looking for clutch bolt torque specs for a 99 Toyota solara

the tightness on the clutch cover bolts is to go around three times,3/8th rachet and pinch up ,pinch ,then go over them again with another pull at bit more than the pinch then check them for the third time again ,this is because the clutch cover sits on dowels and even if you pull them down with a torque wrench they can still work loose if the cover hasnt pulled down over the dowels ,its sort of experiance that counts here you get to know the feel of the thing pulling down ,just tightening once with a torque wrench doesnt mean its correct .

How to remove a transmission with cable clutch on a 1999 sonoma pickup

The transmission is not at the right angle -not still in correct alignment with the engine. When removing it, it must be pulled straight back, and kept tilted at same angle as the engine, so the transmission input shaft clears the clutch disc and doesn't bind up there.

My truck has the 5 speed and it starting to **** and slip while im giving it gas is this the clutch or the transmission?

It's the clutch that is slipping. New clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing is what's needed-usually comes in a package as a full clutch replacement.
