Subject: Clutch; Master/Slave

I just had the car in for service, THe dealer had wanted an arm & a leg for some work & seemed to be trying to sell me some things that ha djust been done a while ago. SO I decide to try someplace else. The say that they have some dealer trained machanics. Well anyway, they tell me that some of the work the dealer wanted to do isn't really necessary yet; the belts and clutch being two of them. Now, the day after I had the car in, i get this 'clicking' transmitted to my foot from th eclutch as I'm shifting up from a stop. I tand not to pull my foot all the way up & remove the slack, but be assures, I'm not exactly riding the throw-out bearing. Which, by the way is also starting to make a light grinding feeling just as it takes light pressure. Under full pressure, no grinding feeling. If I only shift one gear at a time, say when going from 35 to 50 -or- I make it a point to pull waaay off the pedal when shifting through all 5, I don't experience the problem. If I don't do this, by thte time I get to 4th, the pedal is bottomed out. It would make sense that there is now an internal leak in one of the cylinders. Here's the Q: Is there something that they might have done (inadvertently of course) to cause this? Is it going to be a big deal to fix it?
