Mayday mayday! Mustang down!

So after I did a track day I was cruzing back to my house and got a little bored did a little hit 70-90 well as I was shift from 4 to 5 it wouldn't go into 5th. I felt the clutch barely moving so I would the car over to the side and pulled on the clutch and it popped back into place. Went into all the gears fine and than went back on to the main road and everything was fine until I got a block away from my house and that's when it became more difficult to shift into gear and making a little whine noise and tried to die if put into gear. So With that being said I'm guessing shot tranny or clutch

Looks like this might turn into one expensive day at the track.

Good Luck.

Best of luck to ya bud. I know how much it sucks to break your toys. Hopefully it's not something that keeps her off the road for a bit. Let us know what Ford says. Warranties can be a good thing.

I defiantly left that out, but while I was at the dealership, my eye caught the new 5.0 for 30k straight and being manual. So might be that time to switch over, the test drive really had me thinking about trading my car as soon as it is fixed.

Or trade it now because it's under warranty, and it'll get fixed regardless

So little update the clutch is down but it's not actually under warranty for the clutch because it is considered a wear item so, the only way it will be covered under warranty is if they find out something else is wrong in power train area. FYI for just the clutch job you are looking at $2400.

Dang! $2400 seems high to me to replace a stock clutch. Anyone else know how much this typically costs? It was like $600 in labor for my Mazda6 5 years ago and I supplied the clutch. Just curious.

That sounds about right, it would honestly be cheaper or just as much to upgrade to a better clutch and have a mustang shop install it.and I hate to the bearer of bad news but warranties are a joke, your car would have to be a lemon from the factory to have anything covered under a warranty. That's why i don't understand why a lot of mustang owners say, "ohhh I can't mod because I have to keep my warranty".

I Googled it and came up with a national average of $418 to $764.
But when I plugged in a location it (I used Fresno, CA) it came up with $845 to $2596.
Big difference!

All I can say is I am glad I have an auto. Clutches are stone age tech and the replacement costs are outrageous.

You realize that the manual was invented around 1895, with the automatic in around 1904. Calling one stone age would actually apply to both...

Also 9 out of 10 times it is far cheaper to replace/upgrade a clutch than to just rebuild an automatic.

You do know that automatics have advanced greatly in the last 20 years mostly due to computers and fuel economy standards. Manuals not so much. But still, if you think manuals are fun that is fine and many do. Just don't try and buy a new manual shift Lamborghini, they don't exist.

That is why I said new. I found this too.
When Ferrari made the move to drop its iconic gated stick shift the Italian automaker boasted that its transmission technology had become so impressive that shifting your own gears was, at best, antiquated and at worst, robbing the car of its performance.
With the launch of the new Huracán and retirement of its Gallardo model, rival Lamborghini has now also sold its last stick shift. Their reason: no one cares.
That’s right, demand for a manual transmission has almost entirely disappeared.

A 2014 Lamborghini is still new. Those special editions will barely be driven. Sit all the time with maybe a couple of hundred miles. At the most a couple thousand.


Respect the classics.
