Hi Guys,

I put a deposit down on a 98 Talon TSi AWD on Monday of this week. On the test drive I took a few hard lefts to check for clutch problems and it seemed fine. I also had someone listen to the engine for ticking when pushing the clutch in and out which came back fine too.

When I got home I did a bit of reading and found a post by someone who said that if the RPM's drop when the clutch is pushed in - this is a sign of crankwalk. This car did exactly that so i'm basically wondering if it means what I think it means, or if it is a more common thing.. any help would be greatly appreciated.

it could mean that it has cw. Take it somewhere and have the crankshaft endplay measured.

It could also been a bad clutch slave or master cylinder causing the drop in RPMs when you pushed the clutch pedal in...did it shift gears fine?

The gears shift fine.. it seemed to me like the clutch engagement point was a bit low but other than that everything was good. I had it up on the hoist tonight at the dealership and could find no noticable play in the crank pulley. I haven't had a chance to check it with a set of calipers yet but will be doing that tomorrow morning.

Any other opinions would be appreciated!
