Re: 2000 V6 problems

Ok so I just took the car out for a ride and whenever I stepped on the clutch, it feels like something is rubbing/running against it like some sort of thing is rotating but I watched the rpm gauge and the clutch was 'slipping' (the definition of slipping that I know of is watching the rpm gauge and if it goes down when the car is accelerating, then that's slipping) unless I'm wrong which I think I am wrong haha

Did it still have the noise?

When your clutch is slipping your rpms should go up and your car should not accelerate as much as normal.

Lol it makes the noise regardless. It accelerates normally so ik the clutch doesn't slip

Re: 2000 V6 problems

I called my relative today to inform him about the car and he said that he would call the mechanic tomorrow, i'm hoping everything goes as planned and can get my car fixed within the next few weeks

Re: 2000 V6 problems

is it possible that I can get the clutch pedal adjusted so that way it's lined up with the brake pedal and the gas pedal? I've seen the clutch/brake/gas pedals in my uncle's civic hatchback and all three are lined up. I'm just wondering if that's possible but i'm guessing that it's not because of where the engage point is...but if it was possible i might be lucky enough to get that altered too, might be a bit easier for me

ok i'm hopefully bringing my car in for repair (if any parts are necessary to be replaced and/or adjusted) next week. also, I've pretty much narrowed down to two short shifters, either the Hurst shifter or MGW. Which one is better, or are both equal in performance and quality?

Re: 2000 V6 problems

how long does it normally take for the shop to check the car for those problems? i've been told it would take 2-3 days...oh and i might also request them to alter the pedals, i feel that the clutch pedal is a bit too outwards unless it was purposely supposed to be that way.

Re: 2000 V6 problems

Hey all, so I sent my car in for a checkup today and to my surprise, the manager there said that there was no problems with the car, and told me that if I were to install the short shifter handle, it would only make it harder for me to shift. I may replace the engine belt, but that's it. I wasn't quite satisfied with what he said considering his one reason that he gave me so I plan on finding another car repair shop so I can possibly get another feedback on how the car is

Re: 2000 V6 problems

Just informing everyone here that the shop my dad told me about/I brought my car to was actually an import tuner shop without knowing it before hand. So to me it didn't actually help one bit. I might just sell this car and get a newer used mustang...the current one right now has too many problems. Just yesterday, second gear grinded in the afternoon, the clutch slipped for the first time, and the gear shifter was violently shaking after the engine was turned on for a few seconds
