    drive on the highway yesterday. when I excited the free way it started squilling like a slippinng belt.
    when I put in the clutch its louder
    the clucth feel super soft now.
    it looked like was smoking brom the bell housing when I got home.
    smelled like it to

    but the clutch is NOT slipping still pulles when I floor it.

    I'll "WISHING" i might be a stretched cable. but with my luck it probably wont be

    I just poked around a bit this morning.
    I took the cover off where the cable attaches to trans. I can remove the cable by hand. (alot of play). But I think its because the pressure plate is not pressing back som how. so it looks like i'm going to have to pull a trans for the first time. :notnice:

    so i'll be having a beer and pizza meet and greet sat. lol. jk.

    Any truth to it being easier to remove the trans from the bell housing first? then take it off after that? ( I read a few posts that suggested this)

    I think it's a lot easier to take the transmission off first. It really isn't that hard of a job.
