If its not one thing its another....

Well looks like I have to replace the clutch master cyl and slave cyl. Friday on the way home the clutch pedal started losing pressure when sitting at a light. So for now I have to put it in neutral when stopping. It does have pressure to shift, just not sit. We all know that wont last long.

Well tonight I popped the hood to see WTF the rattling noise was under the hood that just started and lo and behold the driver side heat shield came off and took 2 manifold bolts with it (for the center cylinder).

Well looks like a reason to look for a new truck. Was hoping to put it off until spring.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

What kind of truck is it? GM's got a huge problem with that right now and it might still be under warranty.

Its a Dodge and well out of warranty. Just going to replace the whole hydraulic system for the clutch. Dont want to try to figure out which cylinder is the issue. With nearly 170K on it, may as well change them both (plus the kit I found already has the hoses and resevoir already hooked up ready to fill, bleed and install.
