Hi Ian,
If it was just a car I drove around town I would put a kit through the clutch master cylinder however for something I take out of town I would just replace the whole clutch master cylinder. Only a couple of hundred dollars and an easy job to do.

I had the same thing a few years back, the clutch was basically ok, no slipping but when I lifted my foot, the clutch was slow to return and seemed to slap the sole of my shoe. I had changed the master and slave cylinders earlier that year in anticipation of changing the clutch only due to age(415,000ks) so i had a new clutch installed and the problem gone. It may be the same, simply pressure plate age. Michael

I have had the same problem with my toyota 79vdj when working the clutch hard i.e. soft sand driving or getting out of a stuck position. The clutch pedal will get stuck half way and be partially disengaging the clutch causing it to slip.
I have a new clutch & pressure plate, thrust bearing and I have re-bled the system. I have checked and lubricated all moving parts from the foot pedal through.
This has happened all the life of the ute with different clutches and different situations.
I would love an answer as well.
For now when in heavy situations I by default slip into low range.

No answer but similar problem

master cylinder most of the time. there is a spring under the dash, lubricate the fulcrum point too but its most probably the master

If the car has a cable-type clutch, the cable may be about to snap - the end gets all frayed and jams up in the sleeve. Have a look up at the very top of the clutch lever

I'd change the fluid and bleed it first of all see if that fixes it - then spend money if needed. Usually something simple on those old reliable bangers.
