At 59k and clutch is great still starts grinding ever 26k it seems but I just do a flush to the system and put Penzoil 80w-90 GL-5 and the problem is solved and gone!
Brilliant ideaHis comment was he was saving the clutch and documenting what he found because it was an obvious part failure and he expected a class action lawsuit against Mazda, it looked that bad.
I hope his prediction comes true...I had a feeling all along I wouldn't be the only experienced manual driver to have a total failure....Heard from the shop tonight. He is saving the clutch for me. He said when he pulled it out one side was burned and the other just disintigrated into tiny pieces. He was expecting to need to machine the flywheel, like you would with most clutch failures, but he said there was no need. The flywheel looked perfect.

SPEC stage 2 clutch going in tomorrow.
Yours did that? :OThe clutch blew apart, went through the housing into the fuel lines, fuel hit the hot exhaust and caused a fire...car is gone.
ok i have no clue

What do you mean by vibrate? Cause mine did this weird vibrating thing yesterday, which I have never heard before...Hey, I'm back. I have successfully put 26k miles on my 3rd oem clutch. The first two lasted 8k miles a piece. On the way home from church last sunday, my clutch started to vibrate once again :argh 1:... It is vibrating quite badly at the moment, so I have to purchase a new clutch ASAP! Only problem is that idk which one to go with. I have been thinking about the SPEC stage 2 plus the concentric hydraulic release bearing/slave cylinder to go with it. Is this a good Idea?
Also, I think that my most recent service visit (last wednesday) has had something to do with my clutch going bad once again. The technician was just about redlining the engine to pull it up a "small" incline to enter the service bay, then same technique when taking her for a test drive :argh 1:! I have had no issues with it for almost 2 years, and most recent costed me $16xx.xx!!
I am also taking my car to a local guy who has been a mechanic for almost 30 years, so I think he will be able to fix my car better than the stealer$hit ever did.
Any suggestions on the clutch?
