As far as worrying about it....you might as well not. If the problem starts, just take it to the dealer. If it doesn't, then enjoy the drive.
It seems to me that a leaky seal would be easy to spot. I wasn't referring to oil soaked clutches. it's faulty clutches suspected of causing the grinding and hesitation and shuttering problems.
I've read many comments in this forum, but, most seem to indicate that Ford does not acknowledge that a clutch problem exists.
I guess I can just smile and drive along, but knowledge is a powerful tool and it's knowledge That would keep me smiling.
