      First problem-clutch

      I was on my way to work this morning like usual. I was exiting the highway and coming to a red light. As I was breaking I noticed the clutch was only a couple inches from the floor. I pushed on it and was able to put the car in natural. When I went to put the car into first and start moving, it would not go into gear. I was able to get it to a parking lot and call Chrysler roadside assistance. The car was towed to the nearest dealership, which is fine since everything is under warranty. Now I am at the dealership waiting to hear what the actual problem and cause is. I will post updates as. Get them.

      That is exactly what happened to me also!! It was the slave cylinder and the engineer from the plant came with a new part. The cylinders have been blowing the seals.

      I wonder if they will fly someone with the part to Antioch, CA

      I was told that Chrysler was aware of the problem so it's a good possibility an engineer will be sent your way also.

      UPDATE 2- I was just told that it is going to take 2 days to get the part and install it. They are setting me up with a rental till then. T makes since if they are flying someone out with the part since they wouldn't get here till around 5pm my time and won't be able to do anything till tomorrow. Then make sure it is okay. So it looks like I'm in a rental till Thursday.

      I hope this doesn't happen to me within the next 2 weeks. How many miles do you have on yours? I'm around 1100 and no problems yet and I was just beating on the car the other night (power shifting, long pulls, etc)
