Thank you to Bill and Brian for their valued input.
I feel like I am taking out an add in Craig's List when I send this to see
if anyone new has any ideas.
So far the most plausible refers to the motor mounts (which I think are in
good shape . . but could be wrong).
This is such a strange condition as the two components in the truck are not
related to each other . . at least as I can see.
My clutch is fine running around town. Only when slowing down in a parking
lot or slowing down to back up does it lose hydraulic pressure . . or that
which feels like the loss of pressure. I lose the clutch and cannot shift
to neutral . . gear shift is stuck.
If I shut the engine off the clutch pressure starts back up again.
So I regularly find myself shutting down the engine in order to get my
clutch back when having to drive slow.
Anyone have any other ideas how these two systems are interacting with each
I do have a new slave in the car and I am expecting a new master to show up
soon from LMC truck.
