I have a sticky clutch pedal, i have to put my foot under it and manuallky pull it out all the way. Its still engaged before i pull it out, i was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on what it might be, I was told that it might be the push rod in the clutch cylinder, if this is true im guesing that i need a new assembly??

Is the clutch engaging normally?
Does the clutch resistance seem normal?

The push rod for the clutch is attached right at the top of the pedal. The pedal height and freeplay should be checked.

Also make sure that there is sufficient fluid in the clutch master cylinder.

There is a start for you. If you need more information just ask.

I have a 95.5 taco and mine did that bad when I got it, but the clutch was bad as well. I got a new clutch put in but it still stuck a little. I took a can of wd-40 and squirted it up onto the pedal assembly up under the dash. You know the spring and rod and stuff. The helped A LOT, but every once and a while it does it slightly.

if there is an actual problem with it, than i dont know.

Check the amount of fluid in your Clutch Resevoir, add if it needs. if that doesnt help you might have a leak in a cluth line.

Fluid level is fine, engages fine, for having 90k on stock clutch(going to change before the takeover) just found out that it was doing this when i accidentally pushed up on it, just wondering what was up, WD was tryed, and the problem still existed.

Start checking components:

-Pushrod and pedal play
-Pedal height
-Release cylinder, especially the spring
-Bleed the system

I'm suspecting that your clutch master cylinder is bad. Is there any noticable dirt or contaimination in the bottom of the reservoir? If so, this might be causing the ram to get stuck in the cylinder. Start with bleeding the system and see if that solves the problem. After that, check to see if you can push the clutch fork to fully disengage the clutch. It is possible for the throwout bearing to get caught on the input shaft for the transmission, but this situation is rare. Check the play by hand to see if you can feel if it catches anywhere.

I have the same issue with my 96. I read a thread regarding the cluch bushing on the pedal which is damaged/warped which might be causing the pedal from comming back fully. A few guys have installed a small spring to help raise the pedal back up to it's original position. I have not preformed this repair yet and i'm not sure of this will solve the problem but I will give it a try in the next week or so. I will let you know how it goes. Do a search for the " clutch pedal bushing replacement".

My best guess is that it is that little bushing on the clutch pedal spring. Mine acts the same. (One time the pedal actually stuck down and I could't pull it up. Now there is no sign of even the remains of the bushing.) Replacing the spring with one like the brake pedal seems to be the fix of choice.
