clutch pedal stuck to the floor and can't shift, any clues

I was out of town yesteday on my way back here when the serpentine tensior pulley system seized. I limped it back to lubbock and got a replacement at B&R wrecker. BTW, when these trucks get really hot, they are incredibly quite. I stopped every ten miles or so at each little town and hosed off the radiator and it cooled a bit. I continued on and got up to about 55 or so and I got enough air moving it kept it from overheating. Anyway, point was it was quite and I was peaved since i went to checkers and got a new pulley and that one was the one that seized,

NOW.... I was pulling out of the apartment after replacing this and the clutch pedal stays on the floor and the truck stays in gear. Even if I got the pedal back in place, the tranny stayed in gear. It made for an interesting 400 miles back here to my place.

Any ideas, clutch gone? clutch fork, before I start ordering things I need to start somewhere and I haven't the tools or time right now to do it myself. I'll find a shop but I want to have my items ready to go. I'll sit and watch them and if they don't like it i'll go else where.

Help, please!!! I'm lost, i even considered just taking it to the stealer!! please show me the light [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Get a helper to push the clutch pedal and check the clutch fork to see if it moves at the bell housing. If it moves full stroke the clutch is bad. If it doesn't check the hydraulics.

Re: clutch pedal stuck to the floor and can't shift, any clues

It's your hydraulics. If you've made it this long on the stock setup, you're pretty lucky. It's a simple removal/install and does come as a complete pre-bled unit. They do sell the individual parts, but it's a PIA to bleed them. If I remember right, it's around $130 for the setup.

Re: clutch pedal stuck to the floor and can't shift, any clues

I second doing the hydraulics first.

Unless it doesn't travel any more (just stays on the floor or clear up against the dash) then I would just check a little plastic snap that holds the pedal to the master cylinder push rod. It is only like an $8 part and a 30 second fix.

Just a thought [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: clutch pedal stuck to the floor and can't shift, any clues

I'll check the fork asap. The problem developed, as far as I could tell over a day or two...
The pedal would stay on the floor and I'd have to kill it to get it into neutral. I hope it's easy. The tranny it's self has been fine so far. I still want an auto inspite of it.

Re: clutch pedal stuck to the floor and can't shift, any clues

I agree, I found a local shop who used to do some of the work on our units. He'll change the clutch for 250 or the slave for 50.
I'll take it to him this week and see what the problem is, hope it is simple.
