Well as im coming up to corners or something I'm used to downshifting, keeping the clutch pressed until I start to straighten out again and then drive. Of course, I'm also used to driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo.

Do you rev match when you shift? If not, you put the synchros through hell.

Say im doing 55 and need to make a right. Pop into neutral, slow down to 20 or so. Blip the throttle to bring the rpm up, and drop into second, then out of the clutch.

I hate that nobody takes care of theirs and I can't find a set of used seats that aren't garbage.

actually the truck doesn't drip a drop of any thing. I had some oil from oil changes that tipped in the bed and poured out all over the exhaust and bumper

Evap leak, (got a gas cap, thought that was the issue and thought it was fixed) and two weeks later my engine light decides to turn on again for the same reason. Went to start it the other day and idled super rough and engine light started flashing so i turned it off waited for a couple minuets. -_- Maybe the Elbow that goes to the PCV? I just cant stand not knowing.

My fuel filler neck was rotted out. Try seeing if that is the evap problem and try putting hose clamps on the filler tubes.
