I`m looking for information on a clutch problem in my 1996 Chevy S10 pickup. The clutch releases too low to the floor. Its supposed to be a self adjusting clutch, and the problem does seem to get better after driving for a couple of days, but not always all the way back to "normal". And every time I let it sit for more that a week without driving, the release is back to the floor.
The dealer told me that I need a new clutch. This sounds wrong to me. The clutch isn`t slipping at all, and it feels very smooth when it engages.

Chevy 454 8Cyl 22` motorhome. 3 shift - 1, 2 and D.
Whenever on a downhill, I shift it to 2 to do engine braking. Now recently I lost 1 and 2 engine brake. Shift to 1 and 2 is still running fine, but no locking(breaking). The only engine break left is D. So sometimes I have to turn on A/C to slow it down on a long down hill.
Do I need a new transmission? Except engine break, everything runs fine uptonow.
