Truck has been sitting, garaged for 3 or 4 months with clutch “sticking” Everything else was running fine. Would periodically start and run the truck at idle without moving it. Everything fine. Finally got time at the transmission shop to get the clutch replaced. Started it up, clutch pedal stuck to the floor. Pushed it out and had it towed. Clutch done. Truck started up and oil light comes on and stays on. Plenty of oil on the dip stick. There was an abnormal loud rattling sound (lifters sticking?) Truck shifts through the gears fine but feel a loss of power, especially 5th gear. Various threads here suggest the following: change the oil, loss of oil pump prime, pickup issue in the pan. Any other thoughts/ suggestions. Correlation btwn the clutch job and the oil light seems highly unlikely but could it be more than just a coincidence?
