Clutch pedal goes down , but does not seem to release far enough to change gears, im thinking it has something to do with the line that goes from pedal to ******, that part on ****** does not seem tig


i dont see what car you have, but most clutches are hydraulic these days. under the hood on the firewall there should be a small fluid cylinder called a clutch slave cylinder. it should be full of brake fluid. when it leaks, the pedal feels strange and it will not release the clutch. usually when the fluid leaks it it due to a failed slave cylinder on the transmission.

2004 Lincoln LS won't accelerate at 60mph, dies


Why would a dealer not be able to find the issue?
Start by checking codes.
If you have to, drive with a scanner,not a code reader on it,to capture data.
If it only has issues when turning the steering wheel and is speed related with the turning, you have a place to start.
I assume the dealer did all that.
I have a 2004 V8,so let me know, what help you need.

When im driving in 5th gear the RPM's seem high around 3500 is this normal?


I, also, thought this was high at first. After some research, I found that this car runs in that range at about 75 mph. So, yes. That is normal.

1999 Harmonic Tone Between 40 and 60MPH


Interesting problem, it always worries me to see new axles and nuts as few mechanics realize how critical bearing preload torque is, and just gun the axle nuts on until they hit the nearest hole on the castle nut. You would not see or hear a single thing with the wheel off the ground either, the bearing needs to be loaded and at speed. Typically though, a bearing noise will be apparent all the time and grow with speed and swerving should have an effect.
From what you say, it does sound like drive line, a bad u-joint to be specific. I'm not that familiar with the Soob's layout, but it must have a driveshaft running from the transaxle to the rear axle. I think if it were me, I would be pulling that shaft out and carefully inspecting it for binding or looseness at any of the joints. 175,000 mi. is a lot and since the other half shafts have likely been replaced, it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect some wear here as well. In fact I think I would probably look around to see if I could just get another center driveshaft with less miles and just put it in to try it. From what you say, this is very likely the cause.
The harmonic balancer is not an issue as you say the noise is independent of engine speed.

BTW. Very good thorough description! I could solve a lot more problems if people were as descriptive as you.
