Family trip delays, D90 having clutch issues

Hi all! I have a customer on her way to Maine for a vacation from Maryland. The NAS D90 is having clutch hydraulic issues when in traffic, but recovers when it left alone for as little as 10 minutes. She wants to get north of NYC to avoid traffic before addressing the issue, but I was trying to compile a list of people/shops that maybe able to help her before she runs out of clutch!
Fortunately, she's resourceful and can manage a manual without hydraulics for a while.

I don't know her planned route, but welcome all options!

Thanks!

Trevor

She turned around and chose to come here. Her husband's picking her up, and she's taking the F350.
Thanks all for the quick responses; I'll give her a copy of the thread for her to stick in the console.
We had finished a frame replacement on this 90 about 3 months ago and had driven the car nearly 500 miles before giving it back to her.
I'll post up when we find out what's going on.
Thanks again!
Trevor

A woman with a manual 90 who can drive it without a clutch. My kind of girl.

Probably needs the rod adjusted in the pedal box, I've been through this before. Or maybe the flex hose.

Man I hate the clutch on these things... Mine has been sitting in the garage for longer than I'd care to admit b/c of similar problems. This will be the third set of mc and slave cyl since I've owned the thing. One of these days I'll learn and get the cylinders brass sleeved
