Hi there.i can help you with this..
ill need the last 6 of you vin and ill take a look.
ok lets stick to the first question for now with your clutch
click here this is the clutch control layout
you'll see that connected to your clutch peddle there is a hydraulic line that when the peddle is pushed it activates a fork inside the bell housing that releases the clutch
now your leak is it at your reservoir on the firewall or down at the transmission?
with the pic the gray line is the hydraulic hose
as for your leak i don't understand as to why the clutch needs to be done...what is there explanation??
i tried that link i sent you and it worked
try it a couple of times and it may work if not let me know
this part that they sold you is it actually a clutch or the clutch control if they can't get clutch brake did they happen to replace the slave cylinder at the trans instead?
now when they ordered that part and said they were missing parts what happened there?
your bang on..now ive seen this and the correct repair is to do the peddle assembly
or master cylinder... same thing.
don't let them rebuild it just replace...is that what they did then?..or what we're they up too ??
yes they fail and even if the clutch was being ridden..it would have no bearing..
ill tell ya one other thing is buy the peddle over the counter at the parts dept and then supply it to service for install.if you buy over the counter you'll save money because they usually add shop supplies to your bill as a percentage so if that peddle isn't on your service bill it'll keep the total down thus lowering the shop supplies premium you pay ..
ok engine temp
the way it works is the coolant temp sender on the engine sends info to engine ecm
inturn the ecm via the datalink sends the temp reading to the dash and voilà!.thats how it works..theres aliitle more to it but in a nutshell thats how it works
BUT when the guage starts to act up does the check engine light go on as well? does it look like there is a relation?.if yes then i would try a sender
if no you can try a guage.let me know you can do the guage yourself..there's nothing to it!
you mean the guage was going pin to pin? like it was cutting out?
wow those tech's in KC have
some interesting theories..any who the coolant temp guage controls the coolant temp guage and thats it!!now if the guage swings from 200 to 150 in 5 seconds thats physically impossible.so i would suspect sender or guage.now are you able to make you check engine light to come on with the truck stopped and the brake on?.if so we can check for codes on your dash but only if the light is on...its up to u try a guage its possible but if the check engine light is coming on when it faults it could be a actual overheat problem or sender...i hope this helps..well its almost midnight here in beautiful b.c. and im calling it a night we can continue tomorrow if you like and if i've helped you in anyway i do hope you accept my answer and as for those tech's in KC if they tell u anything else thats off let me know and ill help u straighten it out...nighty night..
