How you doing, my name is Shawn. I desperately need help ASAP. I have a 91 s10 4wd 4.3ltr. The problem i'm havin is I just got my truck back from the chevy dealership, and I had installed, new clutch kit, shift fork, pivot ball, hydraulic line, slave cylinder, and clutch master cylinder. The problem: the truck has to be in gear to start now, also when the clutch is to the floor the truck still creeps forward like the clutch is still engaged, (on flat and level surface). After a couple mins of driving it wont or is VERY hard to get into any gear. The trans tech at the dealership said he is unsure what the problem could be. I really need to see if SOMEONE knows what could be wrong as this truck is my work truck and its how I make my money on a daily basis. Please if you know what could possibly be the problem, please list ANY ideas and or fixes to this problem. Thank you in advance, SHAWN NEGRON

Sounds like they didnt bleed the clutch enough. See if the push rod for the clutch master cylinder is adjustable or not, it may be to tight

Hey bub I have run into this before. The clutch still has air trapped inside. What the problem is, is the bleeder screw for the slave cylinder is on the bottom of the slave not at the top where it is supposed to be. Its very simple to remedy. Remove slave cylinder without removing hydraulic lines and put it upside down and bleed the air out, then install it, this should take care of it. I have seen this problem before. Hope this helps

Also I guess I should include that the truck came as an auto and is now a 5 speed (previous owner). The truck is a 91 the slave is from a 92 and the clutch master is from a 94 with roll pin retainer fittings, not thread in type, also has the resevoir seperate with a hose running up to it. Also the hydraulic line is from a 94 if this makes any difference in the solution. Thanks for any future replies! Shawn
