Maybe it is my poor reading skills, but a few members have posted about the fuse #41 relearn feature.

Has the topic starter tried this? And if not why not?

But again, maybe it is my poor reading skills.

Hello All,

I think I did say sometime along the thread that my battery went dead a few months ago, stayed "cold" for about 30 minutes, and then the following days I went through the whole re-learning process of the "keep alive" system.

That's why I haven't gone for the fuse #47 thing.

I am more inclined to consider it a clutch problem, now that I already changed the tranny fluid and verified it did improve a little its performance, but still it doesn't revv up as fast as it used to.

If you guys were to change the clutch of a gt 2012 automatic, which clutch would you go for?

Thanks again!

I don't think you have a very good grasp on things here. You don't have a clutch in the sense that I think you are thinking. There are clutch packs in the transmission, but if those were going bad, the trans would slip. What you are describing is not slipping by any stretch. You say it doesn't rev as quickly as you remember. Maybe your catalytic converter is plugged up??

Are you running the stock tune? If your car runs too rich, it could cause the cat to melt and clog up. If that is the problem, you would either have to get new converters or put an off road pipe on.

Good luck getting it worked out!

Hi,

Yes, stock tune, only the brakes (brembos) are not stock and the ford racing springs, for the rest, I think it's the perfect car for me. That's why I wouldn't want an off road pipe.

What does "run too rich" exactly mean?

New converters are "catalytic converters"? Would I find them online if I look for them under that name or the technical name is different?

I want to get the original feeling from when I first got it, that is, as I said, simply perfect for me, the torque, the sound, everything...

Have a nice week!!!!!!!!!

If you had a catalytic converter problem significant enough to be causing a problem you would be getting check engine light.

If you're concerned your car isn't accelerating like it should but seems to run fine you may look at the parking brake to see if it's dragging a little bit. Other than that I question whether there's actually a problem or not.

Like some of the guys have suggested, I'd do a full tune up on the car. Fresh set up plugs, oil change, transmission service, higher octane fuel, etc. Then I'd consider a CAI and tune, and possibly upgraded coils.
