Yes, If you feel you have the mechanical ability this fix should not be too difficult. Ber certain to bleed al of the air for the clutch line assleble after the repair.
I hope this may have helped,

Replaced whole clutch and slave cylinder on 1996 Toyota T100 2wd 2mos. ago. Today while driving the clutch hit the floor. I did'nt see any fluid leakage. Any ideas.

Sounds like you need to bleed the system again, or you have an air leak. try bleeding again and just check your fittings for tightness.

The clutch pedal sticks to the floor and does not come back up. We changed the Master Cylinder and it's still doing the same thing. I think it might be the Slave Cylinder but im not do i check...

check the slave if its leaking fluid. take off the bellows boot. if fluid leaks out, its bad. Pressure from the system usually pushes the pedal back up unless you dont have all the air bled out of the system.

My clutch petal is going all the way to the floor and can not engage into gear

Have you checked the clutch fluid level? I am referring to the clutch master cylinder which is usually mounted on the firewall near the master brake cylinder. If fluid level is low, clutch won't work. Hope it's that simple. Let me know.

Pedal sticking to the floor in my 2004 Maxima

Ok, I dont have a car like yours but. Most cars like that have a Clutch master cylinder and a clutch slave cylinder. The master is under your hood and the slave is bolted to the transmission. They use brake type fluid. Check to be sure the master is at the full mark. They both have a piston like device that is sealed with rubber seals.When you push on the petal the master piston moves farther into its little cylinder that makes pressure that transfers to the slave cylinder to make pressure that pushes on the actual clutch. Whew! Thats a long sentence!
Any way, its alot of pressure.The rubber seals (at 100000 miles) have done alot of work.
Usually one or both of these cylinders needs replaced.Thats part of the manual trans. maintenance. They can also be rebuilt if you can find the kits and a good rebuilder. Its probably best to buy new and Im sure they are not cheap.
If you have a good mechanic (your lucky) have them put the car on the lift while someone is inside the car pushing the petal down over and over again. Being under the car and watching the action of the slave cylinder it should be doing its job pushing on the clutch.Its probably not pushing every time.
I hope this info helps you.

Clutch works fine until. except that it doesnt

I don't have that shop manual, but the slave cylinder looks like a small brake master cylinder and is on the firewall on the driver side.
Check to make sure floor pan is not split by slave cylinder. Some had weak floors that needed reinforcing. Ford had a kit.

Otherwise, replace slave cylinder. sells at discount.
