How can you tell when the clutch is gone in a truck? When we bought my Jimmy , the first thing my dad noticed when he test drove it he said the clutch was gone... How do you tell? In our furd truck when I let the clutch out there is a small clank or bang sometimes. Could this be it? Also, when I turn it off after its started sometimes the engine makes this weird noise and I have to press the brake in and let out the clutch, other wise the truck drives forward a bit-even though its turned off and on flat ground, no hills or anything.. HELP?
