wrestling142,

I want to make sure I am answering your question so here is what I think you are talking about correct me if I am wrong.

When you push the clutch in the S-10 goes into gear but when you let the clutch out the truck moves very slowly.

OR

When you push the clutch in you can not get the transmission into gear because it wants to "grid" the gears. And when you come to a stop light you have to put the truck into neutral because when you push in the clutch and put on the brakes at the same time the engine dies.

If it is the first reason then you must replace the clutch disk and pressure-plate. I would replace the release-bearing (throw-out bearing)too.

If what is happening is the second description then you will need to replace the clutch cable.

There is no adjustment on this clutch set up (nor a cable) it is a hydraulic clutch set up. It sounds like the clutch is worn out. You will need to verify and replace clutch as necessary. First start by checking your fluid in the clutch fluid reservoir. Its right next to the brake master cylinder. Good luck.

Steve

when you check the fliud in the clutch reservior, make sure it is clean (should be nearly clear) and that it is full. If the fliud is low, you have a leak somewhere and air has probably entered into the system...which means you will need to find the leak and fill and bleed the system.

If the fluid looks dirty (as in dark brown or black) you will want to check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder. Dirty fluid usually means a bad seal at the tranny. The master cylinder should be just below the brake booster. the slave cylinder will either be on the side of the tranny or in the nose of the tranny.

contaminated fluid can ruin the hydraulic systems for the clutch.

If you haven't ever replaced a clutch before, I would suggest doing a bit of research before you dive in....or just take it to a local repair shop.

no offense man, your going to need more than us on a electronic connection to get you through changing your clutch, I highly reccommend going and buying the haynes manual for this truck as it will lead you through all the questions your having....if your having probs getting the hood open, you need to read that manual first, and the section on clutches twice. The manual can be found at most autozones or equivelent, or ordered through amazon.com
