Help Please

I have a 98 Mustang, and recently had my clutch replaced but my clutch pedal is still chattering, it makes a terrible noise from the inside, and will stop if I put very little pressure on the pedal. It is driving me insane. Also, my car has been giving me problems while trying to start it. My car will start easily on a full tank of gas, but anything less than that it takes atleast 2 to 3 trys to start. Please help. Any ideas ?

Hi angel

What exactly was replaced in the clutch and what were the reasons for doing the clutch. Was the clutch done specifically to stop the chattering noise or was it something else. I would say this would most likely be caused by the release bearing but that should have been replaced on a clutch job.

My entire clutch was replaced due to my gears slipping.

Re: Help Please

Sounds like throwout bearing wasnt replaced,or fork might not be sitting on pivot properly- either way take it back, should be warranty.

Gas level shouldnt matter on injected cars at all, but maybe a problem with cascap/vapor canister/pinched line (drawing a vacuum as level drops).I'd try loosening gas cap for a few seconds, then retighten before starting to see if it makes a difference...good luck

Re: Help Please

I also feel you should return the car to the garage that replaced the clutch as it sounds like the bearing or the fork is the problem and it should not be like this after a clutch replacement. It should also be fixed for free by them.

ford4v429 has a good point with the gas cap too.

Re: Help Please

just as a thought, on my TS 50 with the windsor engine, my clutch pedal did the same, and it was so so simple, the clutch return sring had slipped off, and wasnt holding the clutch pedal in the right place, new sring and its now perfect

I am having problems with my car bucking. I changed my fuel filter and bought a new fuel pump. My car is STILL bucking. Any idea?
