Ok here goes it, 86 4000CS Quat, was driving awhile back and my clutch
sometimes will slip (usually if its heated up) like u put t into fifth and
if you floor it the clutch spins not the gear, soo anyways a little furth on
down the road (maybe a month later) i go to put it into third and it goes
into third then pops out of gear, then go to put it into 4th and its simply
not there. Now i have 1st 2nd and 5th, 3rd grinds if u try to go in, 4th
isnt there at all, but earlier today 3rd and 4th worked no problem for 2 or
3 shift... soo... this has me stumped. I was bent on me needing a new
transmission but could all of this be caused simply by a bad clutch? The
clutch also makes a scratching type noise when engaged or not, when in gear
the noise is alot louder. Would i be safer getting a new tranny + clutch kit
for the car, or would a clutch solve the problem.
