CLUTCH

Ok I have a slight vibration in the floor of truck. It is there when truck is sitting idling or moving. If I push clutch in it goes away. I am thinking throwout bearing or I read something about clutch fork. What is the clutch fork and how do I check it? If the throwout bearing or clutch fork is going bad will it cause any problems?

Re: CLUTCH

if its a clutch fork it could be broke or bent, only way to find out is to pull the tranny and take a look. If it the throw out bearing it could grenade like mine did. Either way you have to pull the tranny

Re: CLUTCH

Re: CLUTCH

If its the throw out berring yes it will cause problems when it finally GOES. idk what year your truck is, but the older ones had a dual mass flywheel. And if the dual mass flywheel would hang up it would shake the truck and make a noise also.

Re: CLUTCH

Mine is a 99 and the clutch, flwheel and bearing is all only like 12,000 miles old. What will happen if its the throwout bearing?

Re: CLUTCH

It does shift completley fine and drive ok except for the little vibration. Does that rule anything out since it shifts great.

Re: CLUTCH
