Have a question regarding a 99 Chevy Silverado 1500. 4.3 liter V6, 5-speed NV3500 transmission.
Clutch pedal is hard to push
Truck shifts a little hard
Clutch heats up easily, makes noise and smells burnt if I l have to let it out slow (backing up a hill, pulling a small boat up launching ramp) All towing is within capacity.
Intermittently it takes two pumps of clutch pedal to get transmission safety switch to disengage.
Intermittently, brake pedal is hard when first starting the truck after it has been sitting overnight.
I have owned this truck since 2002. I drove it 150,000 miles before transmission went out. Transmission, clutch set replaced, flywheel
re-surfaced 30,000 miles ago. Hard clutch pedal symptom and safety switch symptom present before and after new transmission. Clutch noise, heat and smell problems after transmission repair only. Hard brake pedal symptom started within the last month. Current mileage 180,000.
