You must press all the way to shift gears.
Clutch is finished if it starts to squeeze when shifting or making a weard
Your focus is too young to have clutch problem, or you are driving like
LOL good one. I have never experienced the hydroulic clutch before. I just
noticed that when I use the clutch. The pedal does not need to go all the
way down only few inches to shift. before engaging it travels almost to the
very to top before it releases is this normal for Focus?
The last clutch I had go out on my '88 Probe it wouldn't compleatly disengage,
couldn't press the pedal down far enough. Had to shut the car off put in reverse
start the car back up, then could put in forward gears, just a little grinding.
A simple test:
Whan standing still, engage the hand brake hard,
put it in fourth gear,
lift the cluch pedal and push the throttle fully for a second or two.
The engine should stop.
If engine accelerates, the cluch is gone.
If car moves, the handbrake is bad.
It seems to shift okay but thought the pedal travel to engage is high. I am
use to the old clutches where it has play and then travel you push to the
floor and then half way up it starts to engage. My Focus goes all the way up
to engage. I took it to the Ford dealer he said its normal. I think they
want out of fixing it. I have had the car only three days and only 21.kilos
on it. What is suggested I do? Thanks Dave.
