Long story short: 98 mustang 5spd, replaced clutch in it in 2003. when i got the car back 2nd started grinding and kicking out then it quit. 8 months later 3rd did the same. Spring of last year tranny started slipping. For a quick fix i bought another clutch (stage 1). Still had 1, 4, and 5. This spring i couldn't shift down into first unless i was going under 20mph Within the last 2 months first has started kicking out gear when coming out of a stop . Sometimes takes 4 and 5 tries and some grinding in the middle of an intersection for the car to get going. While the car is neutral there is a high pitched squealing noise. When I press the clutch in the noise goes away. Anybody know whats wrong with it? I know I need a new tranny but i'm trying to hold off for a complete swap. What to do?
