2006 F430 stalling in 1st and Reverse

So I have a 2006 F430 spider with a clutch that is nearly 2 years old. Very grabby and shifts great. new F1 pump motor, new shift solenoid/relay. I am a weekend cruiser never over 75mph...always in manual, never use auto mode...

Yesterday backing up a not too steep hill, the clutch started to burn and smell of strong rubber and the car stalled. Starting back up the car would stall in 1st and Reverse.

I called dealer and they said my clutch over-heated and to let cool for 30 minutes. After 40 it was still stalling. I waited 1 more hour and still stalled. The car was still facing down hill.

Had it towed home and let cool over night.

I was going to try it again, but before I do was hoping to post to ask if anyone had any tips or feedback. Should I check anything first? If same issue, is my clutch burned up???

Well... I started it up after sitting all night... No warning lights. Put it in 1st and gave it a little gas. It stuttered and jumped forward driving very slowly. Got it into my driveway and tried reverse. It stuttered and jumped back but went backward somewhat. So I shifted back into 1st to pull into garage and it stalled. Started it again and inch by inch went forward to get into garage. I did not want it to jump forward and hit the front wall...

Is my clutch blown? Does it just need an adjustment? Any tips before I tow it to stealership?

Get her to somebody who knows what they are doing and has an SD3 or equivalent. Hopefully it will be something simple like adjusting PIS, a sensor, air in the F1 system, or a cracked bleed block. Impossible to analyze on the internet.

Don't try to drive it anymore, best tip you can get in this situation. All mucking with it will do now is complicate the issue. Play it safe and just let the carrier take it to the workshop for a proper diagnosis and service.


It sounds like either the clutch over heated enough to glaze over and slip or the release bearing isn't actuating correctly, causing erratic clutch actuation, and putting the car into a fail safe mode. No quick DIY fix on this one.

Try taking it out for a prolonged decent long run & keep it in low gear to keep it above 4,000 rpm in each gear, don't forget to enjoy the occasional blast to full revs.

Once you come back you'll stop whining!!!

No Im joking, but seriously go just do the run!

Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!

Thanks, you make very good sense with your thoughts as I really could not imagine the clutch burning up completely from only backing up 3-4 car lengths uphill... Let me tow it in to the mechanic and I will give him your thoughts! Thanks!

Avoid backing up hills, too, which you have already figured out. Sorry that get her to somebody who knows what they are doing was hard to understand.

Well, thanks for your input the mechanic called and it's only 2 hours and all it needs is adjusting the PIS as you said. best news I have had all week!
