You might want to change the clutch if it is original and while your at it get the flywheel redone ,new pressure plate, throwout bearing and pilot bushing.

Do this then you won't have to rip out the transmission if clutch decides to go.

Hope this helps you out

Since you have the engine off, what's the condition of the clutch and the t/o bearing? This is THE time to change it, not 3 mo's later when it starts slipping cause it's worn. also the pilot bushing should be checked for cracks and wear

Shouldn't even cost fluids if your cooling system is in good shape, ie: not needing changing, just catch it in a bucket, cover it, then pour it back in. If you have ac, I would look at unmounting the compressor and tying it out of the way so you do not have to lose the freon....other than that it is jerk it out and put it in...unless I'm forgetting something basic. Good Luck,
