Possible MT-82 Issue
 
Been a while since i have had any real issues, but this concerns me. This has gotten worse and worse and i just noticed it about 2 weeks ago.

There is a rattling coming from the transmission. Very feint inside the car and only happens when not in a gear and the clutch is released. Push in the clutch and you cant really hear it.


I have an appointment Wednesday morning and i need some advice. I have 12.6k miles and mods listed in the sig. I plan on reverting the tune to stock and the airbox as well. Should i take the shifter back to stock as well? I have never been to the dealership other than once. Should i change anything or saw screw it, none of my mods affect the trans. Lastly, i am currently running Redline MTL. Should i do a quick swap back to the factory stuff or it shouldnt be a problem as it is within spec?

What do you think the noise is? Sounds something bouncing around to me. I really hear the fly wheel sometimes. And drive it hard as piss to boot. I wouldnt mind getting this warrantied if it has to, just want to make my odds better, if not oh well lol.

Thoughts please =)

Oh and where is all this hot water (condensation) dripping on me from lol. Never noticed it.

Never heard a sound like that before! The dealer should fix or replace it. you dont have any mods that would contribute to that issue!

I am with dominant1. Take it in as is. Red Line meets the same lube specs as Ford's stuff does. I am seeing a trend here of people freaking out when something happens and they want to return everything to stock to get warranty service done. Don't sweat that. You have nothing on your car that should make that suspicious. Mods that most of us do are the ones to correct Ford's short cuts. Your shifter is one example. Keep us posted on how it turn out. You will be fine.

Yea, I think I should at least swap the tune to a normal uncammed one don't ya think? Really appreciate y'all's input also.

Any thoughts on the noise?

I would remove the cam tune with just the 93 octane tune that you have and leave it at that. As far as the noise it is really hard for me to tell what it could be on any Youtube video. So many things. It could be a bolt that has backed out, a broke clutch finger, or even the slave cylinder flopping around. I am a maintenance mechanic and noises are real hard to trouble shoot at times. Could be a bearing the way it sounds though. On the other side I could listen to your idle time after time! Beautiful sound!

Thanks for the compliments man! I love this car to death! So I will take you advice and swap to a regular tune. Hard to say but the clutch is the most noisy of everything I had ever drive . Like if I am starting to come of the cluth in first and quickly press in the clutch to stop. I get this spinning noise that you can hear outside the car. Definitely feels like something with the clutch. Would this also account for my super notchy shifting?

So I think I should take off my short throw just in case. Or screw it? Lol

Thanks again everyone!!

I would just leave the shifter on it. It has nothing to do with your problem.

Well, just swapping tunes then. Cross your fingers as the drop off time is set at 0800 Wednesday morning. I know nothing of the dealerships out here or how lenient they are. As I drop I off and get the updates, will keep you all informed. If the wont fix it under warranty I will have them put it back and take it somewhere else I guess. Will buy aftermarket parts though

DON'T BE BULLIED BY THE DEALRSHIP!!!! Good luck!

That's the goal lol. I should be fine as long as the have logic. If not I won't be some humble :) thanks for everything and we should have updates Wednesday afternoon!

Just dropped of the car. Talked with the service rep about my tune and mods. He recommended that I return car to stock tune incase they need to update it (which I am sure they will, I never go to the dealership lol). So returned it to stock and handed it over at 12872 miles. They seem willing to help me and said if they keep it over night I would rate a rental car, also they would shuttle me anywhere I needed to go now lol. Feels good so far and they are referencing a TSB in order to check out the clutch for the flywheel bolts being backed out. Cross your fingers gents!!!!

joeymustang 05-01-2013 05:25 PM

I haven't seen the video but by your description it seems to me that you TOB (throw out bearing) is going whack

Slowbra302 05-01-2013 05:53 PM

So everything checked out. The pulled the inspection plate and saw no damage or abnormalities. They drove it for 6 miles and couldnt replicate the noise under the stock tune. So when I showed up the guy asked me to re-tune to my bama am and be listened to it for a bit and said it was so hard to hear he wouldn't sweat it. It only happens with the cam tune at idle with the clutch released. He said I have super hearing and am being over cautious (which is a good thing). He then said if it gets worse or anything else comes up revert to stock and if I still hear it, bring it in and they will get in there lol. Overall best dealership experience ever!!! ( apparently he auto x's on his spare time). I left every mod on my car and had 0 issues. Thanks for the help again guys, but it looks like we are all good!

mapitts 05-01-2013 06:01 PM

That is always good to hear when someone has a good experience at a dealer. Looks like you have been hooked up with a great one. Any dealer that is willing to actually understand that all mods do not trace back to a problem is a big plus now days. Great to hear Slowbra302.

Sometimes you have to make clear that if they refuse to fix a warranty issue, after you had done everything on your part, than Ford corporate will be contacted. And make sure that you ask them if they routinely try to get people to pay for things that should be warrantied while other customers are around. It scares them into doing what they are supposed to sometimes. I have had to deal with Palm Coast Ford a few times and in this town, it is the way you have to do business.

I'd like to know where this "inspection plate" is on this integrated bellhousing trans.

I thought long and hard before trying to post something technical that I am super unfamiliar with. I tried my best to recall actually verbiage. Supposedly tere is a plate of sorts that would display markings or something to that effect if the flywheel bolts actually backed out. Correct me if I am wrong please. No problem calling them back if something is fishy fishy.

5.0Yeah! 05-13-2013 06:31 PM

If you are close to another dealership, I would recommend getting them to check it out.

P51C 05-13-2013 07:57 PM

Get them to put it up on the hoist and show you the "inspection plate" they removed. I've been under my car plenty and there ain't one I can see. There's no way you can look at the clutch on this car without pulling the transmission.

5.0Yeah! 05-14-2013 02:21 AM

I found an article in Mustangs Daily that discussed problems with the MT82 transmission. I personally have not had any, but like anything mass produced, there are bound to be problems with some.
