03 svt clutch issues!!!!

I need some answers for my probs i am not a transmission guy....my clutch is slipping in 5th and 6th gear...low rpm range try to accelerate and it revs with no acceleration...and my master cylinder was leaking all over my floor.....so i changed out master cylinder and bles the hell out of it....clutch petal felt better but now it slips in every gear but 1st....it only slips from bout 1000rpms- 3200rpms thru 2nd to 6th....and ive developed a rattle/vibration toward engine compartment but stops when i push in clutch...neutral and driving it makes the sound would it be my flywheel? And do you HAVE TO change the flywheel out when replacing clutch??

While you're at it do mine also? I never touched a FWD car, I'm a fox body guy. I'm scared to try it on my focus as its my DD and my only car right now. But yeah my ToB is going out right now, chatters when clutch is engaged stops when i disengage it slips randomly at strange rpms for the last year and a half since i bought it

Well does anyone have an answer for replacing the flywheel? Can it be turned or does it have to be replaced no matter what??

That a hard question I'm not sure on the stock Flwheels beause I know there was a recall and stuff early on on some of them or the clutches them self. When I bought m SVT it already had a aftermarket clutch/flwheel sorr

While you have the trans out doing the slave cylinder you might aswell do a clutch. Saves you the hassle of having to pull the trans once again when the clutch due. The stock flywheel and clutch did have a TSB on it, and if it hasn't been changed, you in for a flywheel as well.

You can turn the flywheel I did it but they don't reconmend it. just get a luk rep set clutch kit and you will be good.
