Clutch Issues

I've got about 21k on my somewhat new to me 2013 Roush Stage 3 Phase 3 and two days ago I got on it pretty hard in first and when I shifted into second I noticed that the pedal didn't come back up all the way I stuck my foot under it and popped it back up.


Now today I got on it pretty good in Second Gear went to shift into third and it didn't want to come out of gear until I was way low in the RPM's and once again clutch pedal didn't come all the way up.


The last dyno run showed just over 650 hp so I'm not exactly surprised but I'm assuming I will need to replace the clutch.... Thoughts????


Also what should I budget $$$$ for a good clutch replacement (don't have a shop or a lift so i'll be having it done).


Lastly any recommendations for a decent shop in the Phoenix/Mesa area that would do the work?


Thanks

Try taking out the helper spring. There are several threads on how its done.

No - I don't think it's the helper spring - that spring actually helps the pedal come back up.

I believe this is an intertia problem with the existing clutch setup - I don't know the specifics as I havent dug into it.

If you do some reading there seems to be quite a few posts on here & other sites about it.

Think you need to put in a different clutch.??

When the pedal is fully depressed the spring helps hold the pedal to the floor.

I removed the spring. While I don't think that was 100% the problem it did seem to help somewhat.

You can go with an aftermarket clutch line also as that might help. I recently blew out my clutch. Clutch disk broke and torsional coil springs at one location dislodged. Cost about 1500 dollars with 680 dollars being labor. I put a centerforce dual friction clutch in, along with new oem flywheel, ford racing pilot bearing, and new oem slave cylinder. Well I did also have the mgw shifter arm bushing installed also. The high rpm shifts do not appear to be an issue now and my clutch pedal is softer. However I have not really put the new clutch to the big test yet because still trying to break it in easily and can't afford to replace it again so soon.

With your amount of hp you may want to consider a Mcleod dual disc clutch or equivalent.

My GT did the same thing. The first thing i did was change the clutch line but that didn't help much it still got stuck to the floor. SoI took the helper spring out and that worked. it stopped getting stuck to the floor.
