Sort of gruesome, but still funny.

Question to all you gearheads out there.  The clutch in my pickup has gotten short lately.  Sometimes, it shifts like it's brand new, but more and more lately it has been really rough going into gear.  It doesn't rake, it's just that I'll have to put it in say 3rd or 4th before I can force it into 1st.  The clutch isn't slipping, so I don't think it's the clutch pad or the pressure plate, and the clutch fluid is still clearish brown and the level hasn't dropped in the whole time I've had it.

On top of it being hard to get into gear, the pedal is short when it's hard to shift.  What I mean is that when it acts up, the clutch engages/disengages much lower to the floor than normal.  Sometimes though it shifts just fine.  I was told by the previous owner that they put a new pressure plate and throw-out bearing in it shortly before I got it, and that was only 10,000 miles ago.

Suggestions?

I can no longer fullscreen YouTube videos that are posted on Google+.  When I try, the video stops and it just returns me to my feed.  Fullscreen videos work fine if I actually visit the YouTube page.

THIRD CENTURY NRA: Chris Cheng

Believe it or not, It wasn't until Chris saw "Top Shot" on the History Channel that he really got interested in firearms and decided to buy an AR-15. As his skill level steadily improved, he found himself watching the show saying, "Oh, I can make that shot." After awhile, he knew it was time to put up or shut up.

They have a large selection of firearms available. I wasn't able to look at the archery half of the store, but they had everything from ultra-light pink lady pistols up to an AR-15 chambered in 30-06. The staff was helpful and on one occasion the guy was even willing to sell me some spare gunsmithing parts off his desk for a pistol i was working on.

The lobby was really nice, but the rooms look old and worn out. The rooms all have exterior doors and a huge bay window facing the sidewalk right beside the beds, so if you value privacy you have to make extras certain the curtains are closed. My floor under one of the sinks is wet and smells of musk like it's been that way for a while. The door handle is loose and the door looks generally worn and dirty. The only appliance is a really old television set, but I can't seem to find a channel guide, so since I'm not from here, I'm kind of lost. There seems to be only one set of stairs, so I had to make 3 trips to get my stuff from the car to the opposite side of the building where my room was actually located. There are plenty of other hotels in this town, I recommend avoiding the Days Inn.

Lived here for several years. The staff are very nice and unobtrusive. The community is very quiet, and houses quite a few military personnel.The military that do live here tend to be higher ranking so we never had any problems with loud drunken parties.It is right next to Fort Lewis property though so occasionally you will hear distant gunfire or explosions in the middle of the night. The landscape is beautiful, the whole complex is surrounded by a pine forest, and seems quite secluded. I highly recommend this place to anybody looking for an apartment where they'll be left alone during their off duty hours. Additionally, the rent never rose for the 4 years we lived here, unlike some other places in the area I've lived.

I've been to this restaurant a few times and have decided I will not be back because of multiple bad experiences. My fish was overcooked, one of my regular shrimp was actually an overcooked popcorn shrimp that was cold and impossible to bite through. The drink machines were dirty and out of calibration because everything but the lemonade tasted horrible. Both of the front doors have been broken for a long time so you have to apply a lot of force to open them. I even saw one lady almost get knocked over when the door tried to close on her. On top of that they've had a bullethole in one of the windows that has gone unrepaired for years now. The green beans tasted over spiced, and when my wife asked for a particular piece of chicken, instead of offering to make it, we were asked to choose an alternative. Every customer there had a long wait time, and one lady even demanded a refund because her food was so poor. Avoid this establishment.

Tons and tons of gear. They will price competitively if you owe items to CIF on base and have a price listing from CIF. Employees are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this store to soldiers and civilians alike.

Went here with my wife and friends while exploring the area. The park was very pretty with several miles of paved paths through it, and a beautiful golf course. The whole area overlooks the water and features some ruins of the original Narrows bridge. The restaurant however was terrible. We walked in because the sign said "open". We grabbed a table, and I got the distinct impression we were being ignored because we weren't members of the local golf club. When we decided to leave after 10 minutes of being ignored we voiced our disgruntled opinion loud enough for other patrons to hear, at which point the management decided it was a good time to take our order, but we left. I may return to the park, but I will never again set foot in the restaurant.

Well maintained range with 6 rifle lanes and several pistol lanes. Rifle lanes go out to 100 yards. Bring your own ammo and weapons. Targets are provided at no additional charge or you can bring your own. Military and club members get a discount but it is open to the public. Employees are very friendly but professional and safety conscious. I've been coming here for about a year even though it's a further drive than some other places. I highly recommend this place.
