Default New Guy from Costa Mesa CA

Greetings all
I bought a hi mileage truck that runs great.
Interior looks great, body is a little rough.
It had an oil leak that stopped when I changed the oil. The drain plug was barely finger tight.
The transmission is slow to shift into 2nd and won't go into 1st unless I'm stopped. The clutch starts to engage at stoplights.
It seems like a master/slave issue, maybe a trans issue as well.
I'v already learned quite a bit from reading one of the links here.
Any comments?
Glad to be aboard.

Hey Guys, I shouldn't go into mechanical stuff on the intro page.
I'll read up on clutch hydraulics and trannies and post there.
