Re: clutch help

could well be bud,this can also happen when the fluid is low,so check your levels,as for DIY Clutch replacement,it can be done,BUT you will need plenty of height,as the cat,prop and obviously the drive shafts need to be dropped,definatly not a "flat on your back" in the garage or driveway job
