    I have a 98' 6.5L 3/4ton w/ the manual NV4500 transmision. Im having problems all the sudden with getting it in gear. Sometimes ill pull up to a stoplight, put in in Neutral, then try to shift into gear and I have to pull really hard to get into a gear. And its all the gears that It wont let me get into. And going into reverse it always grinds, or its hard to get it into as well. But other times it shifts normally. Im thinking this might be a sign the clutch isn't completely disengaging or maybe something worse. Any help??

    Clutch slave cylinder or master cylinder bad? Only thing I can think of that would cause clutch to not completely disengage.

    hows the pedal feel? Mine was good- Until I lost all my fluids- I'd check the master/slave/o-rings for leaks. Even replacing the master/slave/o rings shouldnt be more than 80 bucks if you do it yourself.

    The pedal feels good, i havnt noticed any leaks but ill have to check more closely. I noticed that if i cannot get it in a gear i'll let out the clutch then push it in hard and then i can get it in a gear. So It must have something to do with the clutch.
