    buddy of mine has a 95 ford plow truck he bought and recently its been having clutch problems. a mouse nest was found in where the pressure plates release so the truck as it wouldn't release the clutch/disengadge cuz this mouse nest clogged it all up.

    now the truck will drive a little but doesn't feel right, slips sometimes and is hard to get going in. almost makes a whistling type noise when you start to let it out and it barely grabs until the way end. any ideas? need a new clutch? slave cylilnder? anything i can check? on a hill when you let the clutch out completely it will almost just sit there for a few secons and slip until it finally grabs and starts to go.

    sounds like it needs a new clutch but while youre there replace the slave cylinder also check the clutch master is the fluid black? generally black means fried
