I drive a 2000 Mazda B3000 TL edition. 5spd obviously. The truck has about 70,000 miles on it. The previous owner was an idiot and when the truck had a vac leak and would idle at 1500 at times he would drag the clutch at stop lights to make the RPM's go down. Thus the clutch is pretty worn and I am going to replace it as soon as I have the resources to do so since I am back living in Tampa with minimal tools and no good place to work.
When I am driving around town and shifting often the clutch works fine. It still grabs pretty well unless I am trying to dump it on a hill. However, on extended drives where it stays in 5th for a while it will start to get sticky when I go to drive it around town. I am wondering what could be causing this. I am thinking throw out bearing more than anything. Any ideas?
