OK, so i got the head gasket replaced by the shop and also had them look for the leak in the clutch hydraulic system while they were at it because I couldn't seem to find it. It would leak clutch fluid slowly and then when it got low the truck wouldn't go into gear while it was on, it would only go into gear when the truck was off. They said that the slave cylinder was leaking, and they replaced it. That is all fine and dandy, but when I got in it and started to drive it home I noticed the truck was hard to get into gear. They bled the system and everything after they installed the slave cylinder, and so I called them back and they said to just pump it some and it should get better. Well, it didn't get better. Quite the opposite until I was really fighting it to get her into 1st. At stop lights it felt as if the clutch was almost partially catching and the truck was wanting to lunge a bit. Then a little further down the road I smelled the clutch burning. Decided to force, and about a block later I grinded it going for 3rd. Tried again, and grinded again, then tried to drop her back into 2nd... no dice. So I pulled her off to the side. At first I thought it just needed an adjustment, but as it got progressively worse I became less and less sure that poor adjustment was the problem. So I limped the truck the 3 miles back to the shop in traffic and rain on the busiest street in Eugene with no clutch. The owner came back to the shop (it was closed) and told me that he would check it out first thing tomorrow morning (I was supposed to go back home to Portland today) and he would re-bleed the system and check for any problems, then he made a comment to me about how he "hopes it's not the master cylinder." Now my question to you guys is... what might be the problem? I don't want to have to pay any more bills on this truck (the head gasket and slave cylinder was bad enough). Is it possible that the slave and master cylinders both went tits up at the same time? It sounded to me as though this would be highly unlikely, and I would just like some input from you guys as to what I can expect. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif Thanks A Million, Andrew /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif Oh yeah, it is a 1986 Toyota Pickemup Truck w/ 22re and 5spd.
