Joe Posted September 22, 2007 Share Posted September 22, 2007 Here is a link to my post on Corvette forum:http://forums.corvetteforum.com/showthread.php?t=1817514Ok here goes another long post from meHere are the stats:1999 CoupeMild bolt on mods (see sig)176XXX milesLS7 Clutch less than 5k milesI have never tracked the car or power shifted it, a few WOT runs but I shifted with my foot off the gas and waited till the engine revs matched the gear before getting back on the gas.So here are the symptoms, clutch is at the half way point if I pull it up with my foot it stay up push it down and it pops up only to half way. Engine on car wont go into gear, however when I try to put it in gear and have the shift pushed say like trying to go into first the car will move slowly Engine off and it goes into gear just fine.Now the odd part Engine off facing down a hill with the clutch all the way down and the transmission in first it will roll let my foot off the lutch and it will stop.My thoughts on this is the clutch is not full disengaging and the synchros in the tranny close the shifts gates so I cant get a gear when the engine is running but with it off the tranny will let me in gear just fine.Clutch fluid is clear only slightly discolored I have however had to change it out because in San Diego I was on a steep hill and a car pulled up almost literally on my bumper and I had only been driving a stick for a week so I slipped the heck out of the clutch so I would roll back and hit them.Cliff notes clutch no worky and I need a new one Is there a place other than the dealership I can go and not spend as much $$$ but get decent work done.
