Was driving down the highway and heard a knock after disengaging the clutch. Tried to put it back in gear and it did but by trying to let the clutch re-engage I could feel grinding from the clutch on my feet so I didn't force the issue. Cruised to a stop and had it towed. Do I need a new clutch or do you think its something else?

The knock could have been the driveshaft or the u-joint. The grinding could be the clutch plate among other things. It could need a new clutch but it could be so many other things. Check out this site, it doesn't let you copy and paste to the exact page so I'll walk you through it: http://www.autozone.com/UseCase,S001/UserAction,viewSimpleDiagInfo/Parameters,info/getInTheZone.htm 1. Click on "feels" 2. Click on "grinding" (do "knocking" after) 3. Click on "Chaning gears" Follow the steps from there, it will give you a list of places to troubleshoot. Best of luck.
