how often are you supposed to replace the clutch? my focus has going on 119k miles and dont know if it has been replaced before. its getting harder and harder to shift into first and second and sometimes when i have the pedal pushed in and take the tranny out of gear, you get grinding, also sometimes with the clutch pushed in, it still grinds and is hard to shift into gear. would that be a clutch on its final legs or syncro's going bad?
