Question about 1983 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 77 Toyota PU. New Clutch installed. Slave and throughout adjusted properly. Adjustment under dash adjusted full out. Still I have to jam the clutch all the way to the floor and barely able to get it in gear. What else could be the problem. When I push pedal down it goes down about 2 to 3 inches before it seems to do anything at all. It has been bled properly on the bench before installing, and underneath after that. Still have the problem.

If it worked good before the clutch kit was installed , but not after then the clutch installation is incorrect
probably find the the clutch plate has been installed incorrectly
with a correctly fitted clutch kit , there is no necessity to change pedal height or anything else

SOURCE: clutch pedal stays on floor when released

check the helper spring on the clutch pedal. You'll have to get down in the driver's footwell and using a flashlight look at the mechanism while you push the pedal down (and pull up). If the spring isn't missing or broken and everything looks okay, then change the clutch master cylinder. The piston in the cylinder is probably binding due to corrosion in the bore. I have an 1986 and had the same problem. Changing the clutch master cylinder fixed it.

SOURCE: new clutch not working properly really could use some help

My best guess on this, assuming that the clutch master is working and it has no air remaining in the system is that you either have the wrong throwout bearing in there or that it is installed incorrectly. Also, rare but can happen is that if the pressure plate assembly is a rebuilt one, the face has been cut too far and clearances are off.
Obviously, check everything external before taking it apart again, but that's where I think you will need to go.

I believe you have a hydraulic clutch. You may be low on fluid in the master cylinder for the clutch. If it is low, it takes regular DOT3 brake fluid. After you fill it, you might have to drive it a day or two for it to recover.

How do I adjust the clutch on my 1992 Toyota supra?


If its a hydrulic clutch there is no adjustment if its not hydrulic the adjustment should be on the side of the tranny

97 maxima clutch pressure wont return


Did you take all the adjustment out that the mechanic adjusted into the push rod? With a new master cylinder, it may be adjusted so far out that the clutch is always disengaged. Try adjusting the push rod back to its initial setting.

No clutch pressure


You have a hydarulic clutch, if this condition came on slowly you may just need an adjustment, some models have adjustments available down by the clutch pedal area. otherwise you could have a fluid leak or component failure. check to see if the clutch fluid resevoir is full, if not, fill it with the proper fluid and see if you can bleed the air out of the system. if it is full then you probably will need to replace the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder.

The clutch will not engage properly on my 1988 toyota pickup. Already replace clutch master cyclinder and clutch slave?


There are a couple of possibilities; worn clutch plate, failed pressure plate, possible hanging up of the throw-out bearing. Also, some hydraulic clutches have a throw adjustment on the slave cylinder that may need adjustment after replacing the slave cylinder.
If you plan on more DIY maintenance, I would highly recommend buying a Haynes service manual, you'll find the $25 well-spent:

I replaced clutch master and slave. I even had the flywheel shaved.. now i cant get it into gear when started.


when you had the flywheels shaved it may have moved the pressure plate fingers to far from the throwout bearing

I have a 1991 toyota corolla sr5 SW with standard tranny . Lately it is sometimes very hard to shift into second and sometimes third. From first to second , it sticks and makes a snapping sound.


You may be able to fix this by adjusting the clutch pedal height. There is an adjustment rod at the top of the clutch pedal under the dash. Loosen the jam nut and turn the push rod to lengthen it. Retighten the jam nut and test drive the vehicle.

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.

Clutch problem


The rod at the end of the slave cylinder can be adjusted. make sure clutch pedal has no more than an inch and a half of free play. If free play is within the 1.5" & still have problem with clutch disengaging, chances are clutch is worn

The clutch keeps slipping, but it is fairly new. Someone said something about putting a clutch disc in and I'm wondering if that would solve it or if it needs a brand new clutch again.


If the clutch is fairly new,hopefully it hasn't been damaged.Under the dash is an adjustment for the clutch.You have to get in the car with your back on the floorboard looking up with a light.Locate the clutch pedal and follow it up to where it is mounted under the dash.Look forward to the firewall and you will see a gold colored rod coming back from the firewall,and attach to the clutch pedal.Where the rod is threaded,close to the clutch pedal,is a jam nut,and it will be either 12mm or 14 mm in size.Loosen the jam nut and back it off several threads.Now turn the gold rod inwards towards the rear of the car,and that should make the clutch engagement point lower on the clutch pedal travel,or closer to the floor,and should make the clutch stop slipping,unless,of course,it is damaged beyond adjustment,and needs to be replaced.This is the adjustment procedure for the clutch when a new one is installed,and once a year,after that.
