No joke, i was goin back to school from lunch, and i went to put it into third gear and it just wouldnt go, immediatly i thought "not again" since if any of you remember this happened three days after i bought my car, and that time they had it for almost a month before i got it back, this time was different tho. That time it wouldnt even shift into the gears...now it shifts smoothly into gear....and i dont even have to push in the clutch.....it jst won't drive all it does is sit there and rev....i've only had it for a little over a month if that.....this is really starting get on my nerves, i'm in anahiem at skool waiting for the place that fixed it last time to call me back so that they can come pick it up....wata day.....

yea it is but i dnt ride my clutch, if anything i blame the 14 and the 5, at times im constantly shifting into and out of 2nd gear and its makin my car run real hot even at low rpms but theres nothin i can do about it till i move to anahiem...lol really? sorry Josh i think im gonna keep this title too, u kno wat they say 3rd time is the charm....o yea and they said that it wasn't their fault so their not gonna cover it so i think i'll jst save up, buy a clutch (and maybe another one J.I.C.) and get someone else to put it in for me...cuz i dont trust them anymore...[paranoid]

Tell them you contacted your lawyer about. 2 clutches in one month doesn't sound right... Especially with normal driving in normal conditions. How many miles have you put on it?

I dont think he kept it under 3k rpms for the first 500 miles thats prolly why it exploded.

Like pumkin said i didnt break it in right, but i also did put almost 4k on it....a grand a week because of school, had it for 3, add the azusa run and other drives, i was pushin 4k...and its not like i go out redlining lookin for a race, i'm a get in the car pool lane and cruise kinda guy, if theres traffic then take watever means are neccesary to get free, but i dont redline....wish i woulda known about breaking in the clutch though.....

yea, now that i know that though ill be sure to keep it low, i think my shift light has been goin on at 3k too, so i shoulda been payin attention to that....
