this tool has a 5 year limited warranty so I would try and have repaired under warranty. I looked at a breakdown and it doesn't specify how the chuck is on but I would to think it is threaded. the clutch is an assembly and there are no replacements parts other than the assembly available. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I hope you're talking screw gun and not drill/driver. Screw gun used specifically to set screws in drywall. Make sure you have proper tip in gun (usually #2 phillips). There should be a rotating collar on the gun to control screw depth. The screw should only "dimple" the drywall. It should not tear the paper but should be below the plane of the drywall. To check depth run a putty knife over the screw heads. If you hear it hit, screws need to go a bit deeper. To work quickly; lock the trigger on and place the screw on the gun. Apply steady pressure and let the screw walk into the board until gun breaks free. Takes a bit of practice but pretty soon you'll be flying.

Operator's manual is here.
To seat the screw deeper in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the right. To seat the screw higher in the workpiece, you turn the adjustment collar to the left.
If you've been using it a while and turning the collar is difficult, you've probably got some plaster dust, dirt, etc. built up in the threads for the collar. It's probably worth breaking that chuck and collar down, giving it a good scrub with an old toothbrush and putting some dry lube on it. I'm partial to Dupont's Multi-Use Teflon spray. It doesn't attract sawdust or dirt.
In the event you need it, exploded diagram with parts list is here.
If you don't want to mess with it, a Dewalt service center can clean your drill up for you pretty reasonably. I was in one in early June, 2010 and they had some 10% off service coupons sitting on the counter.
