00' ZF6, help?
I'll keep it short, but need any help possible.
Trans in my truck always shifted a bit rough since I got it this spring. In the last week I noticed it start to grind (worse) going into gear occasionally, and occasionally didn't want to go into gear at all. Today it completely let go on me. Left the farm for town, noticed no shifting problems at all, if anything a bit better than usual but could be wrong. Got to town, and it was rough going into 3rd, fine downshifting into 2nd. Then the next two intersections I had to ram it into 1st to get out of the green light.
I pulled over and I can feel the clutch (either clutch disc itself or clutch cylinder) bottom out about 1" from the firewall. The clutch hasn't disengaged at all, if I crank it over in gear it moves the truck. The pedal does feel a bit soft/spongy, but I haven't drove the truck much lately so I could be wrong, but it does feel strange.
Any helpful suggestions welcome, as I need it going ASAP.
EDIT - I pulled the salve out of the bellhousing and I can push the rod on the slave in and out about 1.5" by hand. Any insight?
