I have a 3 on the tree. Converted to floor clutch issue. I think. I was driving and went to take the The truck out of Gear and my clutch Went all the way to the floor any loud sound and clang happened. I didn't have trouble getting into gear and had to push it a few feet until it Slipped into gear. I'm from then on, I pushed the clutch in and would push really hard on the shifter and it would almost engage but not fully I had to shut the truck off. Put it in gear, what's it? Went relatively easy and then have someone. Pull start me while I'm gear. What could this be?

From the symptoms, your clutch is not disconnecting from engagement with the flywheel.

If you have a clutch cable, it probably broke or came disconnected. If it's a hydraulic clutch, the slave cylinder may have popped off the housing.

  • It's all linkage: shifter and clutch. Knim going to check those two suggestions. Is there anything special I should know (such as a specific tool ill need) before I dive in the s@## Commented Jan 4 at 23:11
  • @SeanLegino Specific tool: a helper to operate the clutch pedal while you look for the broken or disconnected part of the linkage.

  • the shifter is a separate thing from the clutch, the two are not connected.
