If you don't ride the clutch, slip it taking off on hills or doing burnouts a loooooog time.

Yeah, I first thought he was interested in brands of hot sauce as possible bait

162,000 on first one in '03 Ranger. Actually it was slave cylinder that started leaking so since it was in tranny decided to replace it all.

Anywhere from 100-200k miles is normal if you treat it nice. If it's slipping, just replace it before you get stranded. Do the whole kit-pressure plate, clutch disc, resurface/replace the flywheel, replace the rear main seal, replace the throwout bearing and slave cylinder. Do it all once and be done.

When you are @ a stop light put your transmission in neutral and let the clutch out. It saves the throwout bearing. I read that in an off-road magazine.

Don't throw good money after bad, coonman.

Time to plunk $40,000 to $60,000 cash down on a new coon-wagon.

You can alway's put your retread NAFA fur check down as a down payment.

You can finance a new ride after your NAFA bounced check is reissued

along with reimbursement of your bank's bad check charges.

Should be smooth sailing after that.

Usually the slave cylinder will go bad before the clutch will. Unless you ride the clutch more than normal.

Slave cylinder helps disengage the clutch, when you press clutch in its gets pressure from master cylinder and extends, pushes on fork that disengages clutch

Coonman220,

Put 289,000 on a 1992 Mazda Cab Plus and never had an issue with the clutch. I did notice that I had to make sure the clutch pedal was all the way to the floor when shifting from a gear to reverse. There should be an adjustment on the clutch pedal itself to give you more engagement of the clutch on the pressure plate.

The slave cylinder acts like a master cylinder that holds fluid to hydraulically operate the clutch. Most small pickups have them. Check to see if your Chevy has one..... It should be mounted on the firewall, right next to your brake masterclylinder. My Mazda had two of them,,the second mounted underneath the engine.
Check for leakage.

If you want to see if your clutch is slipping, apply the hand brake, put the car in low gear and slowly apply the gas, while slowly releasing the clutch pedal. If you get to 1000-1200 RPM and the car doesn't stall, your clutch IS slipping.

Don't let ADC and walleyed get you down...... They're just in awe of your trapping acumen!

Sounds like idea, not like idea of stalling engine but could. It has dbl overhead cam, I heard they have had trouble with them in that motor before. I have not yet. Not in long while, but have lug engine before by thinking in 1st gear an was in 3rd, I wondering what happens when stall engine when do that. Not good for engine. It is inline 4, bought it new, they have lots features on motor, something different with timing, variable valve ? Maybe that what they say at shop, had trouble with in that motor. Cable less accelater, lasar or sensor throttle , yes it has master cylinder for clutch, not leaking, I have heard gm master cylinders leaking, there may not be nothing wrong it , just notice something couple times an may not been, any pickup with over 200k, could expect anything happen, inline 4 cylinder has lots power. I think a 6 cylinder is better engine

262,000 on a 02 Tacoma before it got loose and I beat it through the woods running hounds for 100K. I was surprised to see it looked to be original when swapped out.

Coonman, are you sure your engine isn't a 5 cylinder? Our family's Colorado has a 3.7 l. 5 cylinder. 2008 model.

Those colorados had both 4 and 5 cylinders. Horrible problems with timing chains and cam actuators (for the variable valve timing). Most of the issues came from people believing that they only have to change the oil every 10,000 miles. The oil turns to sludge and gums everything up. We were replacing timing chains at 15,000 miles, and that job is NOT fun.

As for clutch life, depends how you drive it. I've seen them go at 20,000 and seen them last 200,000.
