Little old lady drove in a couple of weeks ago with a 2wd 4 banger 5-speed S10. Said you really had to rev the engine up to move in 1st or reverse. Go outside, tried it. Yep, you need a clutch. Leave it with us and we'll put it in line.

Nope, takes it home and continued to drive it. Get a call from the sheriff's Dept three days later because her truck is blocking 2 lanes of hwy 50 and she said we didn't fix it right. Fix it right? We didn't even open the hood! Told her don't drive it. She did. So we tow it in and finally got to it today.

There is zero friction material on the disc. Nada, zilch. Most of it was in the form of noxious black powder that rained down as he took the pressure plate loose.

I really don't have sympathy for anyone that don't listen to solid advice. Old or young.

How many miles did she get out of it?
Not sure but she put more miles on it than the clutch had left.

The truck has 87k on the clock right now, I've got records on it back to 2005, no other clutch replacement noted.

I'm guessing it's probably got to do more with the little old lady that has to drive with a pillow behind her back with the seat all the way forward. She's probably slipping the clutch like mad since she's probably not getting the pedal all the way down. I've got twice the mileage on the clutch in my S10 without any signs of needing to replace it. But I can reach the pedal and push it all the way down too.

Who are you and why are you bothering me?

Come out for a visit and I will buy you the best gas station burger you have ever had. It's a "thing" here.
