What are the odds of a clutch failure at 65K mostly highway driving? Does the clutch and brakes use a common reservoir? Could a recent brake/rotor relpacement (less than 200 miles ago) have caused a hydraulic issue with my clutch?

A/C fuse ? Compressor clutch not coming on ? HVAC control panel ? When you push that A/C button ,that is an input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM then energizes the A/C clutch relay turning on the compressor clutch . The odds of this being a fuse problem is astronomical . But check fuse F14 15amp in under hood fuse box . Check A/C clutch relay also ! Check power an control of relay ,do you know what this is ? Go on you tube an check out video on test a relay .
Could be your emergency break is locked on. Could be reason for early clutch failure. Other wise if you are sure it is the clutch, it has not been adjusted properly and so slipping. Take it back to installer. I had a standard 5spd never changed clutch in 175,000 miles. Or you are keeping your foot on the clutch. Learn to drive with minimum clutch effort.
This will happen if the Torque converter goes bad or the TCM module. As well as any number of Solenoids inside the Transmission. When the Torque converter goes bad it the transmissions puts too much drag on the motor when you engage a gear. Basically it's like dumping a clutch on a standard. Have the transmission checked. Although I must say, if you have a mechanic or service shop looking at this I'm surprised it wasn't the first place they went after you explained the problem. You were most likely experiencing a loss of gas mileage as well. Were you using more fuel than normal prior to that point.
This is a common problem on most Ford products since around 1998. The issues is mostly with the COP--Coil-On-Plug. Their individual coils for eack spark plug,vs. a single coil pack or distibutor and wire type system. Now the good part. With all of fords problems, ALL MFG's use this type system,Nice move.
The coil driver failure, shouldn't be a wide spread issue
You saw Nissan ,recall issues,back to 2004 thru 2008,once Toyota had the gas peddle issues. If it wasn't for Toyota,they were laying low. Everyone new there were problems. Same thing on Chevy Colorado,Etc
That sounds very familiar. Our 2005 Ford Escape just had about the same problem to the tune of a $2800 repair. Computer failure caused two iginition coils to fail and had to drive over the Continenetal Divide on 4 cylinders. The vehicle is only 5 years old. Happened about 3 weeks ago. Ford said there is no recall. I have a big problem with that.. Where is the "quality" they are trying to sell?
