Re: clutch again

Wow bubb! 4th clutch? either you suck at driving a standard or who ever is doing the work and replacement parts is a **** up and is screwing you over. Ide be layering up at this point if I was you. And either have a MotorCraft replacement put in or def get a good after market one, cuz they do make performance clutches for Rangers. Just depends on how much money you really want to spend.

Re: clutch again

don't suck at driving a clutch i have never had to replace one in the last 27 years of driving. first clutch failed a 68000 next before 75000 next before 82000 now again at 115000. always the slave cylinder failing. what would cause the slave to fail?

Re: clutch again

If you have the same shop putting them in then its their fault, but if not then I really don't know. Keep an eye on the guy doing the work and know exactly what brand of parts he's using.

Re: clutch again

it has been three different shops and a ford dealer. next one i am doing. wondering if they are not replacing the pilot bearing? could be the difference. maybe a bent input shaft? i am at a loss. to say the least i am not hard on a vehical i just replaced the front brakes on this truck about two months ago and i am still running the original rear shoes. maybe i should drive the thing harder

Re: clutch again

go to a ford dealer you can trust because a clutch doesnt cost much, i got my replaced nice and easy, labor may cost some,

try rev matching your clutch when down shifting, prevents less wear and tear
