A little over 96,000 mi and pretty much no major repairs.
Recently noticed under light acceleration, pushing in the clutch there is what would sound like taking a brick and scrape across the cement for a second.
There is throttle hesitation and a roaring sound.
It's currently at the dealership and they are recommending dropping the transmission to investigate.
Thoughts or someone with a similar experience?
Thanks in advance
The update is in from the dealership.
New clutch assembly, pressure plate, flywheel and pilot bearing.
Well, I picked up the vehicle after all said repairs were completed. During the short drive home , realized the exact same issue is still there. I'm not even sure they even took it for a test drive. I will be taking it back tomorrow and see where we go from here.
Is it hard to shift at all, or just the grinding noise?
I would be raising hell at the service counter and my voice would be heard throughout the dealership. I would also be talking to the GM about refunding all the labor charges on that repair. They had you spend all that $ and they didn't even diagnose the issue properly before telling you that was the fix. Then to add insult to injury they tried to brush it off by not telling you that the problem wasn't fixed or not even testing it to see if their "repair" fixed it. That's complete bs and this is exactly why no one trusts shops and especially dealers to work on their cars. Call the Ford 800 # if they don't cooperate and I'd call your bank to dispute the labor charges since you were deceived.
