clutch problems

Won't go into gear. Clutch depresses well, but won't go into gear. Reverse just spins.

Can you shift into gear with the engine off? if you start the engine with it in gear and the clutch depressed does it lurch forward? Give some more information like what does "reverse just spins" mean?

It would also be good to know if this is a vespa or a Ferrari, or are we talking about a forklift?

Doesn't a Vespa have a centrifugal clutch?

Sorry! I'm new to this. It's a 1994 Toyota pickup V6 4x4 extended cab. With the engine off, with some force, I can get it in each gear. When I turn it on, clutch in, in gear, or not, it lurches forward then dies. If I start it, give it gas, and release the clutch it will drive. I was able to get home by forcing it into second gear, and cruising slowly thru town by rolling thru five stop signs, and timing it so the two cars I encountered were out of my way. I crawled under it today and checked the Master Cylinder. Behind the rubber boot it was dripping dark, greasy fluid. Bad sign! I'll replace that first and go from there.

you don't crawl under to check the master cylinder, that would be up top under the hood. your slave cylinder is on the side of the bell housing and it sounds like that is your leak. Don't forget to buy some brake fluid while your at it, you may have trouble bleeding it, I'm guessing you've never done it before.

It is good practice to change both the master and slave at the same time.
