    I've got an 01 extra cab I haven't been nice to. Bought in 02 with 1500 miles. I'm its 2nd owner. Anyway after changing the clutch out the last time I noticed a whine when there's no pressure on the clutch. It will also roll down hill if you try and leave it in gear while parked. This is its 4th clutch (lots of mudding) never have had the flywheel turned or changed. Also noticed the bearing coming out of the trans in the bell housing seemed to be weak with a little play. Is it a combination of the flywheel or that no named bearing?

    Most times it is the clutch release bearing that makes noise with no pressure on the pedal

    The pilot bearing should not be affected by pedal pressure but strange things happen.

    Your truck rolling down hill is a sign your compression is getting low besides that is what your parking brake is for.

    Don`t let anyone else drive your Truck you should make it.

    It only took 5 miles to cook a decent clutch

    Just did mine. Almost 200k on it and it probably could have gone another 200k. The release bearing was almost toast though, slave was cooked and aftermarket master leaked through the push rod. Re-did everything, lines, clutch, flywheel, master and slave (oem and Marlin crawler for ~$650). Don't know what a shop would charge these days for labor. Probably another $700 I would guess.

    Here in CA a dealership clutch job on a 1st gen goes for about 3 grand. Independent shops anywhere from $700 - 2000, varies quite a bit

    Dealers are always high. Nissan wanted 3300 to do shocks and breaks on wifes Titan @ 3-4 days. I did it for $550 in 2.5 hrs. Got pre loaded struts. I've always done my own work on my toy for that reason.

    We quit going to them all together because of that. The wife had taken to them religiously for oil changes, "safety" inspections, and even tires. When I went to take the driver rear tire off I couldn't get the lug off, just kept spinning. With some redneck ingenuity finally got it out. It was the wrong lug all together. Didn't fit the stud and was almost to wide to fit in the wheel. When I went in and tried to talk to them about it, they said "the tires have been on there for a year. Your problem not ours!" Thought I was gunna have to be escorted out lol

    My 1996 clutch replacement using new Borg-Warner (not re-manufactured) parts was right at $1000.
    I'd recommend staying away from re-man clutches.

    I have the same thing going on. Not enough leaking to worry about though. I'm a little nervous about the rear main seal. My new one jumped on fast and went in a little too deep. I'll have to keep an eye out for leaks when I finally get it back on the road.

    Me either... Sounds like remanufactured brake pads lol. I looked it up though and sure enough it's pretty common actually
