      Power steering fluid is probably low. Check that first. Harder to find and check fluid level, reservoir is behind alternator down low.

      That sounds like the boost valve is bad, or possibly a shift solenoid. I am leaning towards the boost valve, as these will leak internally and cause the fluid to not circulate properly. When this happens, it will slip out of gear at any time.

    My Camaro has about 179,000 miles on it, and was fine up until about a month ago. It died on me at a stop sign, and when I tried to start it again the first time, a greyish white smoke came out of the front driver side under the hood. It started up fine on the ...

      Check the wiring at the starter. The smoke you mentioned may have been sparks from the starter wires. If the starter wires are melted and arcing or badly corroded this would cause some of your issues.

    My rear end went out.so I replaced it.now my truck won't go forward in drive. If you put it in drive and mash the pedal.
    It tries to move, but if you put it in 1 and drive through the gears it works fine. The tranny was rebuilt about seven thousand miles ago.

    How do you adjust a hydraulic clutch?
    198,000 Miles on this truck Grinds when changing gears.

      No adjustment for the hydraulic assisted clutch. Sounds like either the clutch master or slave cylinders (or both) are worn. These components are easily and inexpensively replaced.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the clutch master and slave cylinder assembly from around $168.00 for your vehicle.

      Replace them and bleed out the air until you have a good pedal. Then see if it still grinds.

      will it shift with out the engine running? if it will your clutch isn't disengaging check all of your clutch linkage to make sure you got it back together right. if their was alot of bolts gone or lose your clutch could have cut a groove into the input shaft causing the clutch to hang up on it and not release.

      Could be A issue with clutch fork or throw out bearing applying to your pressure plate. Does your pedal pressure feel the same. The clutch disc is obviously not being disengaged enough to allow you to shift into gears when running. More than likely something happen reducing your travel of clutch when your bolts came out/missing.

      yes, clutch pedal feels normal everything works and feels the way it should as long as its not running. I didn't need to jack up or jerk tranny to put bolts back in, direct line up. also I didn't take anything apart or remove shift linkage from tranny. (and I was driving it before replacing bolts) Just had gear shift jumping when depressing or releasing throttle while driving. (that's what made me crawl to find missing bolts.) keep in mind the "bell-housing to tranny bolts" not the trans t motor

      Actually just double checkin the feel of the pedal, kinda seems like it might be hanging up slightly when almost to floor while pushing in
