If the clutch pedal felt loose, then I would say it was not disengaging. But if not, then I would say the friction disk broke between the outer ring and the hub.

Sounds like your clutch cable is caught. Try new cable.

I have solved the roblem, i need a part number for the vaccum hoses i need to replace, there are three in front of the transverse engine coupled together make a T shape just below where the plugs are...


Instead of buying preformed lines from the dealer, just measure the total length of all the hoses you need to replace and go down to your local auto parts store and buy it by the foot for less than $1 a foot. You can also get connectors. Chances are that you can probably be up and running for about $10. Take a piece of the old line with you to get the right size. Hope this helps.

Ford tick over problem


The battery could be slightly weak, making the computer go on the fritz, try a fresh battery!!!! The rev counters bounce often with a weak battery.

Leave feedback good or bad.
