Mustang standard transmission chattering upon clutch engagement....

My Brother has a 2000 Ford Mustang with a 3.8 liter motor. The clutch seems to be going out as when he depresses the clutch pedal there is a chattering noise coming from the clutch area. The noise reduces when the clutch pedal is released but is still there. The car has 105,000 miles on it. A dealer wants to charge 1200.00 dollars to repair it. My Brother said the noise doesn't happen all the time but is usually there. Anyway, he was wanting me to find out about possible options. He lives in Denton, Texas. Any thoughts on the symptoms, possible other causes or is this the normal life of the clutch?

Thanks,

Lablover

Re: Mustang standard transmission chattering upon cluth engagement....

Under hard driving, that seems average clutch life.

I'm not an expert with clutch diangoses, but if you are going to replace it, don't go to a dealer!! You can do it for a LOT cheaper!

It's not hard to swap a clutch. At all. Drop the driveshaft (four bolts on the back end of it), remove the transmission crossmember (two bolts to the transmission mount and one or two on each end), and drop the transmission (six bolts holding it to the engine).
Also, don't forget to remove the shifter (just in case) and the clutch cable/hydraulic equipment.
The old clutch pressure plate will have four bolts holding it to the flywheel. Remove those bolts.

Reverse the entire process, using a clutch alignment tool to set up the new clutch assembly. Very simple.

Re: Mustang standard transmission chattering upon cluth engagement....

There is a number of causes to this problem. First, you must remove the tranny and inspect for broken, worn, or loose parts such as: (1)the splines on the input shaft of the drive shaft; (2)cracked, damaged, or worn pressure plate or fly wheel; (3) the diaphram spring may be exhausted; (4) or simply dirt, debris, and oil saturated on the clutch plate. With the milage on his Stang, a careful inspection needs to be accomplished. Replace parts as necessary.
