1989 Chevy S-10 4.3L V-6. When engine is cold I have to depress gas pedal to get engine to start and have to keep it depressed slightly to keep it running at idle speed or it will stall. Seems to idle a little better after engine warms up to normal operating temperature. Can't engage AC or Defrost when idling or engine will always stall. No Check Engine lights come on at all. Any ideas?

Replaced the clutch and slave. Flushed the line with mineral spirits, chased with dot 3 and bled. A complete success thanks to some help from you guys. 3 weeks later (yesterday) The clutch gradually begins to release very close to the floor making it tough to engage gears. Nothing at the top half of the pedal as if it were not attached at all. This morning back to normal. Until later in the day after a few miles. Shut it down to, say grocery shop, then the clutch feels normal again. The fluid level hasn't moved at all. WTF?
