Re: smelly clutch, master cylinder maybe going bad?

Did you check the clutch master cyl fluid level? Or maybe there is some air in the line. Thats about all I can guess, unless the slave cyl really is going bad.

Re: smelly clutch, master cylinder maybe going bad?

Is it possible the clutch rod popped out of place, then maybe slipped back in? Look up under the dash, and you will see a rod going from the clutch pedal and into the clutch master cy,l and also...

Re: on buying a ford ranger

Re: Clutch pedal bushing??!! Help

Thing is, it isn't the rod that is the problem, it is the bracket itsself that wears away causing the slop. If you click on the link I posted, you will see how the round hole is now oblong. I don't...

Re: Clutch pedal bushing??!! Help

What I am saying is, the rod that runs from left to right that your pedals rock on, has slop between the pedal and the rod. There is a gap I can slip the tip of a zip-tie in. It looks like there...

Re: Got my Ranger yesterday

Thanks for all the compliments! I see that all the scratches don't show on the pic, which does make the paint look a bit better than it does in person. I'm not complaining tho. I can't wait to get...

Re: Funky Smell

Could the cat have peed in the cowl right there below the wipers? Might be getting in by the fresh air vent? Just a thought.
