2001 it would be best to replace the clutch assembly, just because of the age and wear and tear on the friction plates, and the coils do have a bit of a problem shorting out or go open circuit after a while.

Great... Thank You! My truck has just under 200000 miles on it, but I happen to be that kind of guy that sweeps it out whenever a piece of dirt falls to the carpet!! And it is a Red Style Side that still looks awesome at 14 years old.
