ok so these are the symptoms: 1. When i take off in first gear and i slowly depress the clutch 9 out of 10 times i hear a pop form under the hood as if something slipped. This Pop is felt in my foot which is on the clutch peddle. 2. I am also having hard time getting into any gear when the clutch is fully pressed. 3. I hear no other noises aside from the initial pop when depressing the clutch in first gear. 4. The clutch does not slip as i can accelerate just fine when in gear. So then what are the chances that this is related to Clutch, clutch slave/master cylinder and/or Syncros? Now note that i have yet to change my clutch and i have 198,xxx miles on it. 90% are highway. bought the car when it had 50K. Any suggestion will be helpful.
