SparkyF250 My wife shops at Aldi and they don't give you bags, they sell em or you can bring your own. So the back of her Explorer has 2 or 3 of the freezer bags stuffed with plastic and paper bags from all the other stores. She only goes to the store every few weeks so she can stuff the Explorer pretty full.

hogbody I only buy trash bags for the kitchen and recycle the paper and plastic bags from the store for trash bags everywhere else in the house

Bags here in Commiefornia cost 10 cents! Can you say "Rip Off!"

Someone nice gave me 2 of these that stay in the drivers' side pocket -

Anywho , that's what I did to my 6.0 today - I put my new shopping bag in the driver side seat back pocket.

Pretty sure my man card has been revoked, but on the bright side, it really does tie my interior colors together...

Think you're doing good and making it happy, something else shows up.


Check the fluid in the slave cylinder reservoir. I had my slave cylinder go out on me at 68,000 miles just out of warranty. $40 part. But mine was located in the transmission bell housing.

nitrogen The only two things I can think of that would make your clutch pedal stiff, is if your clutch fluid was so water contaminated that it was starting to freeze. Which isn't likely but if it hasn't been changed in three or four years wouldn't be a bad idea that. Other than that your clutch release bearing is not sliding freely on the transmission input shaft. Time to pull the access cover off the bottom of the bellhousing and take a good look in there. The other thing that I have seen happen is a spring on the pressure plate go bad and you could not adjust the clutch. If you gave it enough free play to not slip it wouldn't stop turning if you took up enough free play that you could stop the clutch it would slip when you put power to it. The only cure for that is minimum new pressure plate but a person would be foolish to do less than a full clutch job when he's in there if that is the issue

I was reading about that just yesterday! Fortunately, I Advil/Ibuprofen seems to work better for me, so maybe I dodged a bullet. LOL Pretty soon, you guys won't have anything left in that state due to them trying to ban it all. Don't move up here though...we're sure to follow suit
