Does anyone tried removing cover from under the car (the one covering all drivetrain components)? Also what iam gonna say now is silly but I will try: I did rebuild before 03focus trans and overfilled mercon for about a quart, after driving 10-20 miles half of it came out thru the vent.
My point is::: I was thinking to add oil into my new Focus!!! Larger capacity will take longer to heat up. Unless our problems in DRY department where clutch sits. As I mentioned before dealer replaced clutches last week and problem still appears. So I am using now method illumination, thinking issue is in closed circuit(inside of the casing).
Another thought: I read somewhere that clutches good up to 100k miles under normal usage, so iam asking myself why would they replace it on 1/10 th of its life. And also find that our new DCT good for up to 1million clutch engagements.
Any thoughts???
