    any input on the clutch lifespan? even solid opinions would be appreciated im at 35k and was wondering if i am getting close to it. so far no issues with my clutch but i just like to get it done before it gets close to the timeframe. had the clutch on my evo 8 go out and the hood vent was smoking like a chimney lol

    Usually 50k to 75 on dampeners. 150k+ on clutch. 90k to 100k on timing belt is on the safe side for an interference engine.

    Clutch life (along with the life of every other component of the car) depends mostly on how you use it.

    If you race it, go for 0-60 times, or like to do burnouts, it won't last as long.

    The B-6 is a sturdy, if clunky and clattery, tranny. It's used in many Fords, including the FoST. If you get a good one, and break it in gently, it'll last for the life of the car. It routinely handles more power than most FiSTs make. The clutch is weird, but it should last 100,000 at least, if you aren't beating on it. Twice that, if you're a mileage jockey.

    2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!.. OK, I lied. Also added an intake hose and symposer delete. But that really is all, I swear this time! Okay. just one other thing: A mountune RMM. Now I really am done, I promise!

    That purely depends on the driver. I never had to replace it on a prior car with nearly 330k. Completely different vehicle but a cousin could burn'em out in less than 20k. On an embarrassing misdiagnosis, I had mine out somewhere between 180 and 210 IIRC, and it was just as thick as the replacement I bought. So it would've lasted the life of the vehicle easy. The OEM was a high quality six-spring Daikin clutch disc. The replacement was only four and by comparison, felt very cheap.

    Is this an auto transmission?

    Welcome to the forums Kristian! Our particular iteration of the Fiesta is only available with a manual transmission.

    I will try to keep in mind that there may be some issues with language translation. But, to make an attempt at answering your question... Let us pretend that you're coasting along at 40kph and you release the brake pedal? What happens? Does it rapidly decelerate? Does it coast along as if in neutral? Does it start to accelerate?
