I know my truck is getting up there in years, but I had the clutch replaced 2 years ago. I'm driving along the highway and start to smell burn. A light is up ahead, I stop, take it out of gear. I go to put it back in gear and it won't. It is grinding what feels like the shifter. I had to opt for turning off the car and putting it into gear and drove very slowly until I got home.--Only about a mile from where I smelled burn.
These trucks have clutch start. So if it goes in gear while the engine is off, why won't it change gears when car is on and clutch is depressed? And what is making the grind that feels like it is in the shifter?
I have driven manual trannys since I got a license. This is the first vehicle that I owned that needed a clutch. Is this the same problem--or a new one?
