The Haynes is junk. I have Haynes and Chilton's. The Haynes barely has info compared to the Chilton's. Go Chilton's with a copy of the FSM. Look in JPs signature, it's free.

Yeah Haynes isn't worth your money. It has some basic stuff like ball joints and that kinda thing documented pretty well, but the FSM is where its at.

It's FREE... in PDF format. In this 21 Century, most humans are straying from paper and going electronic. You can DL the FSM @ the link in my Sig.

Print it, if you want something in the garage... and don't want to mess up your phone.

Probably at least as bad as a Jeep so worse than a cow.

Hey all welp haven't made progress... actually quite the opposite... my clutch pedal is stuck all the back, just before this I was unable to get the stick in any of the gears... (I had no other choice but to use it for work for first day starting) shortly before clutch pedal being stuck all the way back, there was lack of back pressure (meaning the pressure the clutch pedal has in order to go back to normal position) than soon after pedal was/is stuck all the way down.... now moving requires me to "hold" shifter towards 1stG forcing until truck rolls (very slowly) fast enough to actually catch fully into 1st! And that kinda spells out the rest of gearing up and down.....alll of which is done with clutch pedal in its currently stationary position as mentioned before.. I do realize that continuing to have drove was more than mildy a bad idea... I would be cross with myself to not share and get advice for the slim chance that one of you guru's will say "its fine buddy connectors just get caught really easily" and I haven't purchased a Haynes one ill lok into the pdf soon thanks guys I wanna stay in the family

Clutch stuck to the floor? Needs a bleed at very minimum. If you replace the master or slave replace both. When one goes the other usually isn't to far behind.

Our trucks have a clutch-dampener mounted to the firewall on the passenger side. When they go bad they can cause clutch pedal problems like you're describing. Most of us will just bypass it with a brass fitting available at most auto parts stores. Use the search button to find out more info.

Consider replacing the slave cylinder, master cylinder and bypassing the dampener. That should eliminate any possible issues with the clutch hydraulics.
