    HELP!! My 83 chevy k10 (4 speed manual tranmission with low gear) is acting up! It barely started when I went to plow this blizzard, maybe because its cold or is it the clutch? It was running very very rough at first and I had to give it some gas to make it idle more smoothly. Also, the gears will barely shift and I have to take my foot off the clutch several times in order to shift, especially into low gear and reverse...sometimes the position of the truck on the ground, better on level ground, helps a bit. Is the clutch going?? Should I call someone to finish the storm or is this just an impending sign, not immediate? THANKS!
