throwout bearing question ..

i just had a all new clutch kit put on my stang , the throw out bearing was squeeling and it was shifting horrible . well everything was smooth until a few weeks ago and all of sudden the throwout bearing started to squeel again( ive been careful shifting and everything ) , i took it back in twice and both times the mechanic sayd nothing was wrong that its normal for it to squeel .. would there be something wrong with the transmission that would eat it up ? or was it just poor labor job of installing it ? i have a warrenty on it i wonder if there just trying to stall me so it runs out and they dont have to fix it ??

2004 4.6 mustang GT - completely stock ATM.

Up for sale !!!!! will deal and talk trades .. PM ME

one of the two, i think.

get a second opinion in writing before you warranty runs out. Maybe a third.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

My guess would be that your clutch is not adjusted properly and the throwout bearing is not being released to the point where it stops spinning. Its a sealed bearing which means that its not designed to spin for long periods of time just short "bursts" when you shift. I heard in a transmission class that one cumulative hour that the bearing spins under load is roughly equivalent to 10,000 miles of wear. You might just be wearing them out really fast.

How much pedal freeplay do you have?

How long was it smooth after you had it all replaced?

Are you sure that it was actually "replaced"? (just in case)
