    I recently changed my clutch and slave Cylinder because my transmission wouldn't engage. Well its still wont engage. the pedal goes to floor and none of the gears will work. the truck rocks when i try to apply a lil pressure but it wont go into gear. Could it be my master cylinder or could i have over looked something?? please help.

    Sounds like you need to bleed the system.
    Have you tried that already?

    Yes twice. I will bleed a few more times till it engages. If I turn the ignition off it falls right into gear and will start with clutch engaged but wont let the shift back out when i push in clutch pedal. Same with reverse.

    Does continued bleeding seem to help?
    Does the tranny seem to shift ok (or better, anyway) after bleeding, but then becomes harder to shift later on?

    Bleeding seems to help. Its not as soft a pedal as before.

    Well, it could be you have multiple air bubbles in the line, so keep going until the pedal stiffens up.
    If it becomes slack again, after all the air's been bled out, you've got a leaky somewhere in your line.

    ...also, I found these on YouTube. May help with the bleed out.....

    Gravity bleed, making sure the cup is full and open the bleeder vale and let it drip. Another way to get the air out of the system is to step onto the pedal with the cap off and get yourself a screw driver handle and start tapping onto different location on the line to the slave. Just keep trying, did you replace new slave?
