Clutch issues....

Hello all, just bought a 98 2.5 it needs some clutch work. The clutch pedle has a piece of wood in between a plug and pedle. If I take it out the clutch does not work. Is it rigged for travel play in the pedle? When I'm driving it it the clutch does not slip. I went to check about getting the clutch replaced WOW $700. Any advice from you guys would be great. The truck was sitting for a year off and on starting though. Is there any after market clutch kit you guys recommend?

it depends, are your planning on doing any other engine performance mods, like a turbo or anything or are you keeping this one stock?

700 sounds about right to have a shop do it. its really not to hard if you have the basic know how, a couple (2 would be prefect but at least 1) of friends, and a few hours.

wood?

please go into more detail about this piece of wood.
You said the clutch works with it in. The clutch should be ok.

The actual clutch seems ok if it doesn't slip, you need to take care of the linkage problems first before considering a new clutch. More details or pictures on this will help

If you do plan on putting a new clutch in, I say just do it yourself if you have some mechanical skills and some tools. It really isn't that hard and you could get it done in a weekend.
