Clutch ...?

Let the wife drive my car for a week or so got back in and it seems to shift rough when going in to the next gear . Is that the clutch going out? It didn't shift that bAd prior. I have to really try to work the clutch to make it shift as smooth as it did. If it is the clutch how much $ to replace one

Does she know how to properly drive a stick? Your clutch should last a long time so I highly doubt your clutch is going out.

No , not well at all .

When she got home the other night there was a burnt smell . I didn't see anything under the hood melted or any of the above . When I got in in to drive it next I only felt it in first on slow take offs but it feels like the clutch it skipping or not grabbing . Not sure if that is a good way to explain it.
if I take off quicker it's not really that noticeable.
Not sure what it is just bothers me bc something is not rite .

Sounds like she glazed it pretty good. How many miles on it? Price depends on if you are going to go with the Dual Mass Flywheel style clutch that is in it now ($$$) or convert it to a conventional clutch which IMO is better. Also depends on how much performance you want out of the clutch.

The factory DMF clutch is probably close to $600 just in parts from Ford.. Just a guess.. The aftermarket is probably gonna run a little more than half of that. Figure 3 to 4 hours labor at $70 to $90 an hour. Aftermarket will eliminate the dual mass flywheel style clutch in it and it will perform better. If you want something high performance for High HP than the aftermarket will cost closer to the OEM pricing.

You will have to replace the flywheel too with the aftermarket set up which will add to the cost however.

You are probably looking at close to a grand either way unless you are doing it yourself which will probably save you 3 to 4 hundred...

I would bring it to Ford and let them diagnose it. Maybe something failed under warranty...

You might even be able to drive it easy and get it feeling good again... Depends on how you drive. Dont beat on it. It might start grabbing again. Might not be glazed at all. Might be the DMF or something wrong. Bring it in anyway. Take a mechanic for a drive.

It also wouldn't be the first vehicle to have a slave cylinder go out. Anyone else having problems in the future should always have the dealer take a look if it's under warranty.

I have been having some issues with my car popping out of gear. very random. 2 times in 2100 miles. It happened with the stock shifter so I put in a SVE/JHR shifter that was in a friends car that he traded his car in and took out. I gotta say the SVE shifter... NO Bueno. At first I loved it but after a while I realized how notchy it was. That was the reason he got rid of it and also because he said when he had it in it grinded in reverse every once in a while. Anyway, It also popped out with the SVE in there within 100 miles so I pulled it out and went back to the stock shifter. I dug how the SVE/JHR/UPR shifter put the shifter up and back a little but it is so notchy, it isn't for me. Already have built cars that drove hard and I dont want this one to be that way.

I have the barton shift bracket in there still. I would not waste money the JHR shifter.

You will get better at it. Come off the clutch a little slower and dont mash the gas so hard.

I've also found this car is slow to drop revs when disengaging the clutch. I can be smoother if I shift slower because it gives the engine a chance to drop revs to match the next gear. Annoys the heck out of me because I prefer to shift a bit faster, but the car likes "slow and lazy." I don't know if it's the factory tune or DMF causing rpms to hold for so long.

Great point Sanguin. I agree. DMF is the cause.

Yeah I notice it to, drives me crazy! I have the stock gears, does it still happen with 3.73's? If it does, and it is the dmf, I be replacing that! Any suggestions?

I noticed the same on my automatic when I rev in neutral. So I would say it's a tune thing since auto's dont have the DMF.

With an auto it is computer controlled to rev match. That said if you are going 60 on the highway and put it in neutral you will see the revs hang. They wont fall off much. That is the computer rev matching so that when you put it into gear again you dont do a neutral drop.
