Hey, how do I know that my clutch is going?

I heard one way to tell is a rattle that sounds like marbles rolling in a can on lift off (which I have
). I have a hard time taking off, which I heard is due to the A/C being on and is normal. Havent had any issues shifting. I thought maybe the rattle was my cat heat shield yet the tech at ford said no it wasnt, but you know how smart them Ford techs are.

Sounds like the clutch problem that most everyone has with the SVT's. My car is in the shop being fixed right now for the same problem. Been there almost 2 weeks now. There is a TSB about this problem so if your car is still under warranty, take it in ASAP.

I get the creaky-sounding rattle whenever a release the clutch now. I'm at 21k. Will I be able to take it in anytime before warranty dies at 36k and get the TSBs done? And does anyone know a good dealership in the Austin TX area that I could actually trust with my '04??
