    squeaky clutch is very common, you can hit all the moving parts with some white lithium spray there is also a fix posted somewhere here regarding the replacement of a plastic piece.

    ya clutch wise ya if i push the clutch in it squeeks with the truck on or off.....im guessing there some kind of spring that needs to be replaced? power steering wise when you start the truck the loud whine begins and gets louder if i steer.

    spray some white lithium on the arm that goes thru the firewall and cycle the clutch a few times.

    if that doesnt seem to help, it could be the bushing in the clutch return spring...

    the bushing on my pedal broke and was causing a horribly annoying squeak, so i took the old spring out and replaced it with a different type...http://www.yotatech.com/f2/fixed-stupid-plastic-clutch-pedal-bushing-19137/
