Could be that you have a faulty clutch slave or master cylinder. Check for fluid levels and leaks. If the clutch is not working correctly even the shifter goes into gears, it look like its not engaging all the and just popping out.
Clutch adjusted wrong so not fully engaged, or clutch plate worn out. Pedal should have 1" or so movement before pressure felt building up. If not, adjust so there is some free play. If free play is present the clutch itself is likely in trouble or the mechanism is damaged.
Ok, I guess its going to be a not too obvious solution then. All we have to do is find it... 1.What type of gear shifter is in your truck. Column or tower 2. Is the tail shaft turning when you try to move the vehicle 3. Does the vehicle try to move at all 4. Is there any noise from the gearbox or clutch area 5. Are you certain the clutch kit was the right one 6. Did you try the clutch plate on the gearbox input shaft spline 7. Is the release bearing clear of the pressure plate fingers. 8. Does the release bearing carrier slide freely on the retainer on the front of the bearbox, and did you apply lubricant here.
Walk away from this truck unless you have a professional look at it to determine the problem. You can spend lost of cash repairing a vehicle today. This truck appears to have multiple problems. I would not risk any real money on this truck as it may be a money pit.
Ford : back the truck up 10ft put truck in neutral and disengage four wheel low. (You can't drive in four wheel low cause its a pulling gear and you won't do over 3-5 mph.)
Nissan: start truck see if it idles normal. If so rev motor and check throttle for sticking and check EGR valve make sure its not stuck open or malfunctioning when you drive it..
your luck as with mine is not good. thought I had a bad bearing, after droping the tranny and seperating the housing, I have a broken counter shaft. after looking for another with no luck, the tranny shop informed me that was common for these transmissions. parts are expensive, to rebuild would cost aprox.$800.00 or more. the main cause is the front bearing is supported in alum. causing shaft to move which first takes out the bearing, then the strain snaps the shaft. taking out all gears except 4th and only moves while in 4 wheel drive.
Your slave cylinder for the clutch is leaking. It's on the bottom of the transmission towards the engine (follow the fluid trail!). Though it's not too difficult to replace, it IS messy. And be careful with what you touch when you have that fluid everywhere, it eats paint.
Usually a new slave will come with detailed instructions on how to properly install and bleed it.
sounds to me like you have a clutch issue. quick test for you to perform. put truck in 5th gear and pull / engage the e-brake and try to take off, just like if you were in 1st gear. If truck does'n stall, clutch is weak and you will need to check it. good luck.
