Hi Steve,
The clutch and brake problems are separate. The clutch problem would seem to be a worn clutch plate and or pressure plate. These will need replacement which means the removal of the gearbox.
The brake shudder could be caused by broken or loose brake parts, but is more likely to be caused by worn brake discs, which will require either skimming or replacement.

When i hit the brakes every so often the car

Your going to have to take it to a transmission shop and have them scan the car for a DTC code. It sounds like the transmission's torque converter is not disengaging causing your engine to surge forward every time yu try to stop. It could be as simple as a bad or broken throttle body position sensor that is causing your problem. Good luck and keep me posted.

Wont shift outta park.

Make sure that your brake lamps are working. I have seen the brake switch go bad and cause it not to come out of park. Good luck.

Slamming noise from rear of jeep

Without checking it out it would be hard to pin down, but it pretty much HAS to be one of these things. A broken shock or spring, a broken brake disc or one of the discs in loose in the caliper. If it is a shock making that kind of noise it would likely be visibly broken and show other signs (bouncing, popping).If it were a spring~ sometimes they are just noisy, but they should also make the noise at other times.If you haven't had the noise occur at any other time (rough terrain, tight cornering) it's almost certainly brakes.It's a good idea to replace all four at a time~ in my experience if two are worn, all are worn.

Ongoing Playstation2 Slimline issue

The laser wont go on unless the disc is IN and the cover is closed.
There is a disc brake post coming down from the LID . If it's broken , the disc wont spin/read.
The post is on the back right of the LID it (normally) goes thru a cutout that moves the brake out of the way.
Other troubles are debris on the worm gear that drives the laser assembly back n forth.
If the post is broken drill out the old one and put some kind of plastic or wooden stick about 1/4 inch long in it's place

PS2 slim Power Problem - Light is red goes green but nothing else.

Hi Leostg,


I have seen this a couple of times.  Lightning or an overload has burned up the motherboard. Its not a fuse, its a fried Emotion Engine processor.   Best advice on dead motherboard is to probably total it unless you can get a low price motherboard replacement. My cost on a new motherboard for slim is about $55.  If you want it fixed, replace the motherboard.  Really you may be able to get another Slim for $55 or less. If you look on ebay  for another motherboard do not take any chances on used motherboards. Go for a broken slim model that will boot up but want read discs. When you get one that boots up, use its motherboard in your Slim.  This will be your best deal at getting your slim up and running once more.

Please give me a Solved vote. I believe you only get one vote and its locked.   I have put a lot into your solution and hope you will show appreciation by voting solved.
