Ok, Ever since yesterday it seems my car takes full throttle to take off smoothly and I have to ride the clutch without the car starting to vibrate like it is going to stall. I don't know what it could be but the throttle doesn't seem as responsive. I've always had to floor it to get it to the speed I want without taking forever but this is a lot different. Lately I've been letting my girlfriend drive my car to teach her how to drive stick and she stalls a lot and is very very jerky on take offs. She has also grinded my gears like twice, but hey, that's not too bad considering I've made a few mistakes like that once or twice. But again I noticed that if I don't give a crap load of gas and ride the clutch the car has like no power and feels like it might stall although I haven't yet. Has anyone had this kind of problem with their focus? And what you did to fix it? Thanks.

Already burning it out? But it's only got 26,850 on it and it's never driven hard if at all. I take really good care of it. I wouldn't think a few grinds would mess it up already unless I was doing like 75 and shoved it in 1st without putting the clutch in.
