For the last few weeks my clutch has been a little squeaky every time it's pressed in. Some oil change dude sprayed some lubricant on it a few months back which made it go away for a few weeks. The squeaks back and it kind of feels like the clutch is getting ever so harder to press in. Any ideas as to what the problem is? Thanks

Is the squeek coming from the pedal or under the truck? Could be the bushing in the spring, the throw out bearing, slave cylibnnder, etc. do some searching and you'll find different things to look for and solutions to fit the problem. Similiar issues were brought up a few times over the past few weeks.

It sounds like the squeak is coming just forward of the cab in the engine compartment right where the clutch goes through- Sorry, not sure if there's a name for the "wall" (other than dash) that seperates the cab from the engine compartment.

Both are typical of a high mileage clutch. Its probably the springs on the pressure plate that are creeking. Plus, as the clutch gets older, the springs get tougher because they have slightly longer arch creating higher initial pressure.
