Hello! I'm Rixster...

Let me see if I can help you out on this...

Let me ask a few questions of you so I can have a place to start.

Does this vehicle have high mileage?

Have you ever had any clutch work done?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
The vehicle has about 89000 miles and has not had any clutch work since I have had it (about 42000 miles)
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
is there an adjustment that can be made to the pedal or is this hydrolic?
Expert:  Rixster replied 8 years ago.

There is no adjustment for this style of clutch on this vehicle.

What you are experiencing is a very good sign your Clutch is getting to the point of replacement.

This job should take about 4 hours labor(give or take) this based on a B2500 2WD Cab plus. A complete clutch kit can be purchased thru your local parts store and should contain a Clutch Plate, Pressure Plate, Throwout bearing and Pilot Bearing/Bushing, It should also come with a Pilot Tool to guide and center the Clutch Plate for ease of installation. It is also highly recommended that you have the Flywheel Re-surfaced as it will provide a fresh clean surface for your new Clutch to begin it's duration.
