    If you are putting a clutch in at 25k something is wrong. The last standard transmission i had had 168k on the original clutch.

    I will post the findings from the dealer when the work is complete.

    I had a drive train resonance, mainly in the summer, and it returned at a slightly different frequency on this last long drive, then slippage occurred.

    no, no abuse of clutch except by the rare guest driver, and that is so seldom that I don't think it would wipe it out by 25k

    and the abuse by a guest would be not fully depressing the pedal (at a light, etc), no high-performance driving at all

    they said it was glazed, and not worn, but there was no further description. Doesn't matter, anyway.

    750 to replace, not covered under warranty

    I believe the problem was caused by guest drivers letting the clutch ride here and there. the pedal is far down for some people, reference the seat - steering wheel layout

    if it goes again I'll find something aftermarket with a strong spring and grabby as possible, but I didn't have the time for that now.

    I wonder what clutch the hi-lux uses ?

    the truck sits for a week at a time, and I seldom use the clutch. I wonder if that affects anything. we'll see in 3 years.

    PLUS :

    when it gets warm this summer, will the (off-throttle at high speed) drive train resonance still be there, or will that magically disappear? hopefully it does

    WTF my 87 Ranger had 198K on it before she started to go. Even with 25K of hard driving it still shouldn't go bad.

    what went bad in this case was the friction between the clutch material and the surfaces they are against.

    other web-boards talk about glazed clutch problems, usually in high performance cars it seems

    I never had a clutch problem in any other car (all mt's), I never burned it (when I towed heavy things I used low range when necessary, and it didn't slip), so all I could come up with was the explaination I mentioned above

    the dealer said they found no fluid on the clutch, and they threw in a free oil change, apparently.
