As ive said in the past ive got a X reg "2000" 1.8 zetec Focus and its my first car. The bloke i baught it off had the clutch done about 4 months before i baught it and it passed its MOT etc 2 months after and ive had it for coming up 6 months so can the clutch go so soon if its just under 12 months old??
I had a full service done 2 months ago with front brakes done also.
So my problem is when accelerating from dead in 1st gear there's like a clunking noise thats hard to describe just as the car moves off and im briging the clutch all the way up. Just after the biting point when the car takes off it makes like the catching / clunking noise that can be felt in the car aswell as my passengers in the front and back can feel and hear it.
It makes the car feel to the passengers like its wheel spinning/vibrating on take off if that makes any sense.
In all other gears its fine and its not over revving or anything. It accelerates fine and i can take off very slowly in 3rd and 4th gear. But my biting point is high.
Whats also weird is that on quick one off short journeys its fine but if im drving in busy traffic stop starting and going to and from places all day it will start and carry on for the rest of the day. Like when the cars heated up or something. My dads been driving for 30 years and he could feel it before when he tried it but cant think what it can be.
I can take off very slow and its fine but taking off at nromal speed it does it. and its not the way im driving as it never happened for the first few months but its maybe got worse and happening more often on busy/long journies
hope this makes sense for someone to help me.
