'Fluid is fine'. How fine? Is it bright red? Are you checking it hot with the engine running?

Could be a blockage in the valve body. Chances are that the tranny is gone.

Wow. Never would have guessed that. I've really only seen those fail due to release bearing or fork failure.

If he used cheap bearings it is very possible. I've had cars come back 3 months after requesting the cheapest part. We call them 'white box'. Very poor quality.

It sounds hydraulic. The pressure plate can't really get stuck. It would be stuck 'open' to match your symptoms, in which case the car wouldn't move.

If the tires are that new there may be a bend in the wheel. Have the shop check when they balance.

Usually when a bearing is bad enough to feel, it's bad enough to hear. Most likely you would...

Tire, balance, or bearing.

Feel the tread for any high spots and take it to a shop to check the balance and for bends in the wheel.

If it were the pressure plate, it most likely would not be intermittent. Does the pedal stay down or is there no pressure and it springs back?
