warped pressure plate? Failing clutch system on a stock 2013, Need Help...

At six thousand miles I had to replace my flywheel, clutch, starter, battery, and all the in between parts. Six thousand miles later, I had to replace the clutch kit-Pressure Pate, lever, bearing, spring and gasket maker. The dealership said that the fingers on the pressure plate were warped. I donít understand how that is possible in a jeep that was brand new in May.

Right now I am building a cases, and I need some technical advice. Is it possible to that the last dealership did a bad job and caused all those parts to fail? Is this going to happen again in six thousand miles?

Yes, I have been. This is not my first manual vehicle. I had a 2005 six speed TJ, that was lifted with 33 and I had no issues.

the last time I had work done, I didn't replace the clutch. the clutch has 10,000 miles on it and looked brand new.

No offense just asking. Many people today do not know these things.

But again reading this forum for a few years this seems out of normal poor quality. But I think this is more the mechanic that has fubared.

Me if I put in a clutch no matter what its in. I would not put a new clutch pack against a fly wheel that has been used unless its been refaced. Its just not worth the time to skip anything. with out seeing the parts no one here will know.

dealers are hit and miss. I just had the local here do a left head replacement. So far seems the mechanic got all the bolts back were they belong.........
