warranty question and sputtering on zx4

Hey everyone. I have 100k mile bumper to bumper on my ST. Will the dealer replace my clutch under warranty at 72000 miles? Also, this has happened twice, while driving on the highway my St started to kinda sputter and when I gave it gas it didnt do much i'd push in the clutch and rev it nothing...then it just went away. What could that be?
Thanks
Pete

Clutch is a wearable item, like brakes. Likely won't be covered.

As for your other question, sounds like what my '04 was doing before I bought it. Had no power, pushed my foot to the floor and the engine wouldn't even rev. Turned out the timing belt had jumped a tooth. I'm not sure if they put a new belt on or not, but they did fix it. I'm starting to wonder if this is a common problem w/ Focii, you're the second person (other than myself) I've heard with the same problem. *are* our timing belts prone to jumping a tooth?

04FocusInSK - That's realy interesting. I spent around 800$ this year, trying to boost power. The car lacks power on low gear. I replaced everything from spark plug, wires, O2 sensor, air filter, pcv valve, pcv hose. Finally, scheduled time w/ Ford dealer on replacing timing belt. Got 125k miles on my 2000 SE. I hope replacing timing belft would fix that hesitation problem.

If the belt has jumped a tooth, it may very well solve the problem for you. It's deffinitely worth looking into.
