13 throw out bearing leaking at 12000 miles
Well I was having 1 st gear issues. I decided to toss out the dual mass flywheel so I ordered a spec stage 2 clutch and a lightweight aluminum spec flywheel. After it was apart the throw out bearing was leaking. I also did a braided clutch line too. What a difference. Clutch is being broken in so I can't get on it hard yet but it feels so much better. As for the throw out bearing I got a new one but I doubt ford will warranty this one. My car has a bunch of drivetrain mods like gears, shifter, axles, driveshaft long tubes, white line trans mount etc. I doubt they would warranty it but I will say I have had an issue since when the car was stock from about 2000 miles. I would have replaced the clutch and flywheel as I am going to do a pro charger next so not too upset about the bad throw out bearing. Anyway, if u are having trans issues like I was which was 1st gear clashing when the clutch was being engaged from a dead stop then check your throw out bearing.
