That's what I was thinking. LOL

I'm sure jigabop will chime in. He has a lot of experience with these and breaking them.

It still shouldn't happen. Dumb question but I have to ask: Are you putting it in a forward gear when facing uphill, and reverse when downhill? If so, then it has to be the clutch.

I'm not greatly familiar with manual transmissions but if you use 1st as the parking brake isn't it engine compression that actually keeps the vehicle from rolling?

Truck weighs upward of 5000 pounds. That gear is not gonna hold it back on a hill. Find a flat place to park or chock the wheels

Yes that is how it works.


As long as it doesn't pop out of gear, that will be plenty to keep the truck from moving. But higher miles means worn syncros. I agree the real fix here is to repair the parking brake.
