Alright everyone, Got a few problems I'm hoping you guys can help me out with!!

First one, When pushing in my Clutch before, It was normal but now it pushes down so easy, Takes no effort anymore.

Also, When engine is cold when pushing in the Clutch, I can hear a sucking air sound that is loud but goes away after driving for 5 mins.

and last question, Clutch pedal shakes hard now when I'm in gear and out of gear..

anyone have any ideas? Thanks! Also Plan to pull Tranny this winter to replace TOB (I believe that's bad cause of another sound I hear, But now sure if the above has anyhting to do with that.. I hope I wont have to replace the Clutch.) :piss2::hidinghere:

How many miles on the clutch? Is there any slippage in hard acceleration? And can you feel the clutch disengage, or does it never really feel like it completely lets go? When mine did kind of what yours is doing my friction disk was worn to heck and I hardly had to push any distance for it to let go.

The loss of stiffness is the pressure plate is worn out so doesnt "push" back the throwout and clutch fork like it should... The shaking in the pedal is most likely the throwout.. I would go in and replace it all. Plate, disc, throwout and pilot bearings.. Should be good to go.. Idk about a sucking noise having anything to do w the clutch.. Its cable actuated so its not like youd be hearing a hydraulic line or anything..

I'm not sure how many miles are on the clutch, There's about 300K on Engine and Tranny, But both run great, But I'd say that there's anywhere from 30 - 70K on the Clutch.. LOL But I haven't owned it that long.

and, I haven't noticed any slippage, But I don't hard accelerate enough I guess. and I can't feel it disengage but it does feel like it lets go, but I hardly have to push it in for it to let go, I can just rest my foot on it and it acts like it's all the way down. (Some times. Not always)

Damn, That's gonna be a lot.. Lol, I'm poor. gah, Well, I doubt it'd be worth to much going into it with 300K on engine, tranny and body.. Even if I can go 110 before any type of vibration/rough driving starts. ;P

thanks you guys!
