Cool this morning, mid 40's. Need to adjust the truck carb a smidge, running a little too rich at idle for the weather. Need to get my higher temp thermostat put in before it gets cooler.

All I've been doing this past week is watching YouTube videos for: painting, engine mods and suspension, political BS, stand up comedy, and documentaries. I've never logged this kind of hours before but what the hell are you going to do when you can't move?

You know we got to give you **** about it, esp since your sedan is going to walk on it. Haven't been a fan of the mustang since the fox body but I do dig the new coyote. Plans for mods?

Something's wrong with my clutch/transmission. Clutch pedal feels gritty, yesterday the pedal stuck to the floor and I couldn't take it out of gear, and two days ago it wouldn't let me into 3rd gear until I pumped it once.

Guys are saying it's possibly the slave. Gonna need another car while the Cobalt is down.

If you had to pump it then it might be your master cyl. have you made sure there isn't any air in the system?

I'll bleed it first just to clear out the old fluid, that's what was recommended to me. Do I do the vacuum method or is there a nipple on LNFs?

It's only happened once to me. Two days ago, 2nd to 3rd shift and it grinded, so I clutched out/in once (pump) and it went in fine. Yesterday, the pedal stuck to the floor so I turned the car off, got it in neutral and pulled the pedal up with my foot. No issues since then, but the clutch pedal feels "gritty"

get a mityvac from Harbor freight and put vacuum on the brake cylinder for about 10 minutes. Usually -10hg is sufficient.

Undo the fitting, and pump the clutch. should feel much better

Look into the clutch master.

You and me both on the fox bodies. Yes, I'm researching the controller and trying to understand how to tune it. Will run ethanol ASAP. Other than that, nothing.
