    Clutch problems help please

    ok i got a 1999 trans am with some problems for a couple of weeks now my cars clutch pedal will stick when changing gears if you do a hard burnout. i read the STICKY thread on here and i did the drill mod and changed my fluid and neither fixed it therefore i figured it was probally the slave cylinder. Today i went to do a burnout from a dead stop and the dang clutch smoked a lil so i imdeieatly let off the throttle. Up until today it hasnt acted like it was going out and i didnt figure the pedal sticking had anything to do with the condition of the clutch itself. The car still pulls hard and dosent act like its slipping even now. By the way the car is beginning to feel weaker

    Yep. New slave is in the very near future. Your car feels weaker because the clutch is most likely on its way out as well or it is glazed.

    Sticky clutch pedal isn't always the hydraulics, it could be is a weak pressure plate. You spin the pressure plate up to 6000 rpms and the centrifugal loads on the pressure plate might be greater then the return load from the pressure plate springs.
