    Not sure what you mean by "loose".

    1. When you depress clutch, you can't get it into gear?


    2. When you depress clutch, it goes into gear easily but slips when you take off?

    Also what do you mean you can "hardly start the truck?"

    It will turn over fine, though i suspect trouble there next. Once started, however, it grinds into reverse and first for second. Once driving, it has no trouble but i can feel it doesn't engage the clutch until the last inch or so of the pedal.

    There are two different systems of clutch control in these vehicles and I don't know which you have. If it's hydraulic, you might suspect your clutch slave cylinder or master cylinder. You might check the hydraulic fluid levels and if they are low you have a leak somewhere.

    I'm not aware that either the hydraulic or the cable system is adjustable. I know you can adjust the stroke of the brake master cylinder.
