frown BA XR6 Clutch Operation

I have been having problems of having very little freeplay on the pedal, and recently I let the clutch out and it felt like the hydraulic were sticking. The clutch slipped for a second and then took up smoothly.

I took the ute to the dealers yesterday and they couldn't find anything wrong, except, the clutch fluid is nearly black and really smelt burnt! (no, I don't ride the clutch or do burnouts, most of my running is on the highway)

I was told they would check with Ford to see if this problem had been reported before and get back to me?

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

All reply'sappreciated.

CHEERS!

Yes, last year I heard of someone in Adelaide doing a clutch in the first 1000k's. All these little things come to try us. Good luck with it.

There have been some issues involving BA I6 and I6T manuals with the clutch slave cylinder hydraulic line. From the symptoms described I would say that you are probably experiencing it. It is a simple and quick fix that your dealer should be aware of.

If you have any problems - PM me and I'll give you the details.

Cheers
Russ

I have a manual XR6T and haven't had any problems with the clutch. I'm currently at 4600km.
