Factory clutch issues please help.

Recommended Posts

I have 160k miles on my 3/4ton truck 5 speed and have owned it since december. Whole time its had a throwout bearing noise but had no problems driving slipping shifting etc... Well since it has gotten warm last few weeks and only after i drive it say 20miles or more in the heat i have noticed it getting hard to shift into gear. you really have to push clutch all the way hard some times to get it into gear especially reverse and first once you come to a stop. Thanks for your help in advance. Chris

Before something break you better pull the trans down and inspect it... There is just no way around it... As for mine it did the same thing and I caught mine before it blew up... It was extremely hard to get into any gear and you had to fight with the trans to get back into gear... http://forum.mopar1973man.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=981 http://forum.mopar1973man.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=982

Ditto, mine had same symptoms as yours but eventually the clutch pedal stopped working altogether and I had to drive without clutch. Spring had came out and went through the pressure plate and it wasn't pretty. I wouldn't have thought it either but such subtle symptoms can actually be something a little more serious and a little more costly. Take the trans out and look, might be surprised what you find.
