I wish someone (such as cavedog309) would have been in the car with me yesterday. I hit traffic on the highway and let me tell you "tow hitch feeling" is an understatement.

Excessive rattling - including odd numbered gears which almost NEVER happens to me! Tapping the gas would launch the car forward and letting off would engine brake - but somehow much more than usual...?

Got home, took the car out a little later and the clutch would still slip but not nearly as bad as it was on the highway early that day.
