Sounds to me like the clutch master cylinder might be bad usually this happens when the line or the clutch master cylinder leaks fluid and you lose pressure to your clutch pedal...you should have a hydraulic clutch on this truck...if its leaking it will need to be replaced its located under the truck usually on the drivers side mounted on the transmission bell housing...hopes this helps

How to adjust 95 geo tracker clutch


engaging?
you meant dis-engage im sure.
pedal up is engaged,
pedal at floor dis-engages it.
my guess, is the clutch drags unless i push the clutch pedal 100%
to the floor.
1: bad cable is 90% cause. non last this long.
2: no free play is way too loose.
3: broken lever on the pedal top. caused by #1

all fail modes covered here.

Clutch pedal travel


Your pedal height may be adjustable by a stopper bolt at top of pedal. You would have to check the specification for your car. Most important that the pedal has about a half inch free travel before clutch begins to engage. You need that free play to ensure the release bearing (the throw-out bearing) is not touching the fingers on the pressure plate when not engaged. If it always is touching, it will be rolling around constantly and will go out prematurely.
Your new clutch will allow gear engagement sooner as the clutch pedal is released. I mean gears will engage just as pedal is lifting off from floor. You should notice that difference-the old clutch would have taken longer pedal travel from floor before releasing.

My clutch is very free till almost the floor where it now engages. it used to engage about midway to the floor. what could have caused this?


you should buy a self adjusting clutch, you can set the clutch yourself, to catch right away,or, a couple of inches of play, It could also be your clutchplate, not cheap! I hope this helps you in some way

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.

Clutch or tranny


Ok, Clutch engagement point should be midway or just before midway in relation to total travel.(pretty much the same in any clutch vehicle) assuming that if put in lets say 1st gear, with clutch in,then engine started, when clutch is released, car does not move but there are no unusual noises (grinding from inside trans.) If this is the case, I'd first check linkage for adjustment. If OK, remove the trans and look inside for broken gears, excessive metal debris etc.If shift rails are internal it could be that shift forks are sliding on rails and failing to engage synchros.

Clutch pedal suddenly goes to the floor, no longer [dis]engaging the clutch


I found that having a wood stick on the clutch pedal down to the floor all night (the other end of the stick held by the seat. oh yeah !!! ) would help to ease shifting for the first hour the next morning, then it would come back stiff and hard to engage in gear.

Gears


Could be the clutch is wearing down.If it's in ALL gears,it is likely the clutch.If i remember correctly,your car has a hydraulically activated clutch.If this is the case,under the dash,where the clutch pedal attaches to the clutch master cylinder,there is a jam nut,either 12mm or 14 mm wrench,loosen the jamnut,and spin the threded rod in,towards the clutch pedal,and away from the firewall.This should make your clutch pedal engagement point closer to the floor,and easier to shift.
