The clutch pedal return spring on my 2000 Camaro ss broke two years ago. I purchased another one from a local GM dealer. I could not believe the spring was so expensive. ($70). I installed the spring my self in 2006 and two years later 2008 the spring broke again. I only drive the car in the summer months. (26,000 kilometers). I do not abuse the car in any way. I believe this is a design defect. I think that a clutch pedal return spring should last longer than two years at $70 a pop.

Camaro 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 14,000 miles
Bad manual transmissions in the F-body's concerning the six speed. I have a 2000 Camaro ss with 34000 miles on it and my original transmission's 5th gear went out at 14000, note my car is not under warranty because of a reconditioned title. But I have purchased another used 6 speed from a local recycling yard and 3rd gear was out of it. Finally I found a local recycler that could get me a rebuilt transmission. Purchased it and installed with all 6 gears ok but now reverse is grinding. My complaint is that I don't see any recalls yet on these transmissions with me finding this many problems just to make my car ok and also my labor charges are exceeding the cost of a used unit now.

Once the vehicle warms up, the shift skip (which locks you out of 2nd gear when doing "rabbit" starts if properly working) tends to lock me out of 2nd and 3rd gears both on a consistant basis. I have nearly been hit by a truck and a metro bus as this problem is very unpredictable and it has locked me out of all gears several times. I do not use this vehicle as a "hot rod" or pleasure rod, it is my daily driver to work and I put about 130 miles a day on it and I need a dependable car 7 days a week.
