93 Toyota Camry: with a standard transmission..slave cylinder

This answer was rated:

I have a 93 Toyota Camry with a standard transmission that the clutch pedal will stay down to the floor if you hold it down for any period of time. I changed out the slave cylinder and still have the same results. I can not see anything that looks like it is binding up on the clutch pedal. The customer had been spraying the pedal with wd40 and I put some SAS Attack pentrating spray on it and this didn't help. I have not changed the clutch master cylinder because I'm not a parts changer and the clutch works fine if the pedal does not stick. Need some direction.

Thanks for your help on this problem. I was sure it was the clutch m/c after I changed out the slave cylinder and had the same problem but I have not ran across this problem before. The slave had always taken care of it. Thanks again for the guideance and sorry it has taking me so long to get back with you. Tony
