clutch problems on '07 mustang
I am hoping someone can give me some insight or assistance with this...
I have an '07 v6 mustang 5 speed. Last Friday I was driving home and smelled what I thought was someone's car burning. Saturday morning we move the car and my clutch is burned out. Goes all the way to the floor, revs at about 5000 rpm to get going out of first. I take it to the dealership and they tell me my clutch pad is gone (I have 17k miles), figure this is hard to do....would have to be on my clutch ALL the time. They replaced the pad and said they replaced the slave cylinder since it was leaking. I pick up my car and the clutch still is not right. Normally when I let the clutch out it engages 1/4-1/2 way out, now it won't engage until it is almost all the way out. Makes it interesting on hills. The dealer insists that this is the normal clutch function, it is not. They have stated they have done all the testing needed and it is fine, today they are supossed to hook up a vacuum like machine to try and get all the air in the lines out. What is going on? Can anyone give me some insight and maybe what to look for on what is causing this? SInce day one I have heard a popping and creaking sound in the undercarriage and the dealer attributes this to "normal clutch engagement"
