Replacef clutch kit now as soon as you take off you have to shift i am in 5th gear doing 30mph pedal. Rpms are high when you drive it but it doesnt seem to have any power.

My car has 330000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi Cassie. Thanks for contacting us today. This is typically caused by a clutch that is not properly adjusted either at the pedal, or internal. You might want to review this article to see if you missed a step in the adjustment process, but I would recommend referring to a service and repair manual for your 96 Ford F-150 for proper adjustment and installation procedures.
