A one off throwoutbearing that wont break ? Did you break one ? Thats would be a first never seen any one break a throwout bearing in any of the Focus trans there would have to be something in the bellhousing to do this , what happen

You should paint your A pillar covers black so the gauge pod doesn't look so out of place.

ZXthrizzle05 06-01-2012 03:35 PM

i was thinking of doing that to my car as well but i kinda like having it black

So got to fswerks went to swap the plugs to find the headgasket is don't leaking coolant into the spark plugs ugh what a waste of time

ZXthrizzle05 06-01-2012 04:10 PM

was it at least a long drive?

hardSVT 06-01-2012 05:07 PM

I spoke too soon I think I have a leaky valve cover gasket we pulled the plugs dried up all the fluids and it looks like oil put new plugs back in the car things running like a beast time to go on the dyno
