Stick with it, you'll get it.

Little off the subject......

Can you describe how you are installing the throw out bearing on to the clutch fork.
I don't mean to insult you, but just making sure it's not on backwards, if this is even possible. (just a shot in the dark)

Is your fork pivot ball in place.

Edit: I just realized you have a T5, this may not even apply to you. The carnage you are describing to your TOB is pretty incredible.

I cannot believe how active and popular this thread got.

I learned how to work on cars via Haynes manual and posting online. Now a days, YouTube and better quality forums have helped so much. In all my years of working on cars, I've never been a brat or rude. I've always been appreciative and tried to give back as much as I could.

Anyway, good luck OP.

okay well go worry about your self then if youre not going to input on this. I don't want to hear it. if you would read the posts instead of just looking at the title (WHICH I TRIED TO CHANGE I HAVE ALREDY SAID IT) then youd know from the start , from like the second post I was already called out. and from there on I APOLOGIZED TO EVRYONE INDIVIDUALLY. Especially after they STILL offered to help me after I came in being a dick. I leanred already so I don't need yu telling me anthing if youre not helping n the thread. These Nice other people have accepted my apology an I have been nothing but nice and respectful thanking everyone.

Now you weren't being like that in your whole post and you even wished me good luck. so I'm still going to say thanks and I have not apologized to you individually yet because all you posted was that you weren't helping.
Yea I know I was being a brat. I'm sorry. I have been getting SO frustrated because I HAVE TAKEN IT TO A SHOP. they acted like they've never seen a car before they codnt tell me what was wrong. SO basically this is my only hope to finding my problem. I am sincerely sorry that you didn't get included in the Apologies.

Now, I have realized that I wont get anywhere with forcing people to help me. These people showed me that even though I was a little bitch creating the post, that they looked past rhar and still helped me out. Thank you to YOU nd EVERYONE else on this forum that has and will hep later on.
Hopefully I will be able to take this experience and help others in the future if someone like me cmes up.

Don't be afraid to show your ignorance, its how you learn.

I love my car and I love working on my car even more. so I'm going to stick with it even through this problem lol.

You know, that never even occurred to me that I coud be putting the bearing on backwards... Thanks for pointing that out I will chec on that.
And youre fine I'm not worried about being insulted. In my point f view, my work NEEDS to be criticized. Especially since I'm doing the work myself. I need to know what I'm doing wrong and how I can do it better. theres always room for improvement. SO thanks again for pointing that out.

If it cant be replicated with the car off thr ground its probably suspension related. Also the slop in the driveshaft isnt helping, Im sure itll clunk especially when taking off.

I would do like others have said and fix the known issues that you have. Of nothing else that will eliminate a lot possibilities. Plus you car will drive and handle much better.

As already said many times, fix the known issues and start a new post. Let this one go. There's too much BS in this one. I think you're on the right track now. Just a thought.

Which side of the TOB was facing the engine.

Have you noticed. There is a lot of people trying to help you. If you can narrow down the problem then fine. If not then please start another post. This one puts off most members.

This is how I learned how to work on cars, minus the YouTube and forums. I'm old enough to remember when the guys at the parts store knew what they were doing.

It is really nice to have forums and YouTube.

I would search Ebay for a factory service manaul. Best maintenance investments made so far, beside putting gas in them.

I'm not saying to take the shotgun approach, I was just suggesting that he should change the parts that he's already identified as worn components as they could be contributing to the issue.

I would scrap the car and buy a slightly better one that doesn't knock or rattle. Sounds like you have an awful lot of problems to fix on that one...

Now the guys are a bunch of kids that don't know thier head from thier ass...but they can do something most old guys can't do and that is runs a computer. We all have to start somewhere though and that's a good place.

So every time he has any issues he should just scrap the car and buy a better one? It sounds like most of his issues are just neglected maintenance.

Stick with it, work through the issues and the reward will be great. Hell man its probably around 15 years old put a couple thousand in it if necessary and you will have a sound Mustang.... Or you could spend 40K on a new one...

I personally like the used cars cause i get more for my money and the parts are easier to find and all the bugs have already been identified and worked out.

No, I didn't mean that. It was a tongue in cheek remark designed to get a laugh. Although he does have rather a lot of neglected maintenance issues.. (which in this country would cost a fortune to rectify as parts are mega expensive once you factor in the costs of shipping and duties.
