I will tap it to see what I hear....hopefully more than meow. BTW nothing on the yellow pages regarding cats psyche, though their urine does smell somewhat like sulfur .

It may be worthwhile mentioning the master/slave assembly was replaced recently and works goody-go, so that can be ruled out.

This would be the first thing you should check,this sounds as if your clutch is slipping.

Hey guys!

So here's what I did last night. Not successfully finding any hills to try the aforementioned I went with option two: put it in 4rd gear with the e-brake on and slowly let the clutch out, no stall, truck just rev'd up and didn't attempt to move almost at all. Also tried it in third gear with very little bite, no stall. I think you nailed it in that it's definitely the clutch that's gone belly up...

If anyone knows any good links to a good step-by-step process to changing the clutch it would be fathoms appreciated!! Many thanks all.

If you have the trans cross member/skid plate out you can lower the back of the trans and get to the more easily with the proper reverse torx and a good ratchet and a long extension. Trying to reach between the trans and firewall is a knuckle busting experience.

Have you checked your brakes to make sure they're not dragging or stuck? Just had that happen to me.

Just replaced my clutch and transmission, in my opinion this is the best way to get to the two bolts up top.

Definitely not the brakes. First and second are half decent, on third and fourth it goes nowhere. Thanks for checking in tho

I hope you're having success. Enlist some quality help when lining up the trans to the flywheel/engine. It can be a bit of a bear.

As long as you keep the dowl pins where they need to be then aligning the engine and trans is a fairly easy process. Put a bolt in to hold the two together and put the engine on its mounts. Then go back to the bell housing bolts, then the torque converter. Blue loctite is your friend on the torque converter bolts.
