    So recently my 16’ fost has developed an issue where in 1st and second gear it feels like it’s stuttering or just bumpy. It’s only when first starting out in those gears tho I thought maybe clutch but the rpm does not shoot up, although if wot it will for a second in higher rpm but once again...

    So my clutch is almost blown. Its slipping in all the gears and I have almost 0 torque when moving. Its obviously time to change, so I called my mechanic and asked them for a quote. This attachment is what they sent me. Its 2469 in total. I asked them to replace the clutch fluid for me, change...

    Do y'alls transmissions make a clacking noise when shifting? It's loudest when I'm moving, and especially noisy when I'm shifting hard. No other sounds, and I can only hear it when the windows are down. Clutch, clack clank clack, clutch cruise. I'm assuming this is just part of having a sporty...

    My 2018 ST has recently (since the temperature has gotten Very cold) started to rev very high when I shift up or push in the clutch in general. It doesn't seem to happen when I downshift, just up shifting or popping it into neutral. Usually it pops up to 3000-4000 rpm although I have actually...

    Hello! Do any of you know what the torque specifications are for the flywheel bolts AND the pressure plate bolts for a Stage 2 Competition Clutch and Flywheel? I can only find them for the OEM flywheel and pressure plate. Thanks in advance!!

    I have a 2014 Focus ST (~96,000 miles) and for the past few years have been receiving a Low Brake Fluid warning whenever the temperature drops low. I've had the brake fluid checked and it is not low despite the warning. This year, I received the warning and my clutch is sticking to the floor and...

    So I've done a search on the site and others and found that other people are having issues shifting when the car first starts. I've got the same issue. On a cold start, after parking it in the garage, the car does not want to go into reverse, and has trouble going into 1st. Shifting while...

    So I had a problem on the highway. I was going about 80, went to accelerate a bit to pass someone (maybe about 10% throttle) and I felt my car jerk forward a bit and it wouldn’t accelerate anymore. It wouldn’t go past about 3k RPMs. It will go into gear just fine, it just CRAWLS and will not...

    Will any OEM RS clutch fit the ST with a lightweight flywheel designed for the stock ST clutch? Also, where is a good place to buy an RS clutch kit? I cannot seem to find one on Ford's website.

    I have a 2013 Focus st with 40k miles FBO and a strange problem. When I engage the clutch from a stop on an incline or even sometimes on flat ground I get a grunting clunking noise from under the car. This sounds resonates through the center console leading me to believe its the inner CV joints...

    Hello all! Unfortunately my motor blew last week and I need to get it swapped. I have sourced a motor but want to do the clutch while its out. The car is ar 120k km and its worth doing anyways. I found out that a few weeks ago Ford DOUBLED the price of their flywheels, so I am going...

    Had a new clutch and fly wheel put in about 4K miles ago cause the old clutch was shot. Anyway now out of no where I cant shift into third. 1-2 4-5-6 and reverse all work fine, but trying to get into third it grinds and kicks back. Never had an issue like this before and honestly would rather...

    I’ve been having odd symptoms with my clutch. The car has 105,000 miles on it, and a ton of go fast parts. It feels like clutch pressure drops when doing quick shifts through the gears. It’s never an issue when cruising around like a normal driver. But when I start laying in to it, clutch...
