clutch slave cylinder

all i have to say is ...

changed this baby out in a few hours .. but what a pita! and so random when it went .. no signs like my other cars did of a weak pedal .. the truck sat for two days after driving perfectly , then i couldnt even get out of the driveway when i tried to leave the house . i had a 1.5 hour drive home , so i filled up the reservoir and headed out .. made it home and changed it out later that week . ARGH!!!

Do they make a low pitched squeal sound on the way out? If so Im going to be joining the club. Which sucks for me cuz I just replaced the tranny in Nov. I just didnt have the funds to do all the things that I shouldve also done

Mine croaked at 19,000 miles on a cold December morning. It had been squawking just a little bit for a couple of days beforehand.

mine is just now starting to go at 135k.
its been really cold and i know the clutch is slipping, when i let out on the pedal i can hear it make a squeak then the clutch takes a second to grab.
plus i have to pump the clutch about 30 times after it sits for more then 2 hours, or it wont shift into any of the gears.
