I'm in desperate need of some guidance. I've put a lot (I'm not telling) of miles on my 16 GT 350 and I'm having some real issues with my drivetrain. There are multiple spinning noises and gear grinding noises coming from the flywheel or clutch/trans with vibration felt in depressed (half way) pedal. Many people familiar with drive train tell me it is not a bearing issue but most likely an issue with either the flywheel (imbalance) or the clutch disc's. I've taken it to two local Ford dealerships only to find out that 1st dealership... "are not comfortable addressing the issues" after she was in service for 4 days and 2nd dealership... "our transmission tech cannot get to it until the middle of next month". I later found out they both have a terrible service complaints with tons of negative feedback comments online.
I'm trying to find a dealership near me (Columbia, SC) that will fix the issues. I'm extremely worried about damage to the TR 3160 and need to get her in service fast.
Does anyone know how I can find a dealership that has service experience with the 15/16 Shelby GT350 near me? Ford performance cannot give me a reference and I'm getting a long silence on the phone from most of the dealerships I've contacted.
Once again, I live near Columbia, SC. The dealership I purchased her from is about 6 hours away and is too far to drive in this condition.
Any help is much appreciated.
