  1. F1 slips out of gear -- 2005 Spyder

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    F1 2003 Spyder at 30,000 miles, has a 2005 model clutch since approx. 19,000 miles ago. Lately it's slipping into neutral sometimes, at stops (quickly, not after a minute, as it ought to), or even when car automatically downshifts after I've slowed down alot. Seems to happen more on lengthy...
  2. Can I change the clutch myself?

    QP5 2003-2012
    Hi, I don't know if this question has been answered before (I can't find anything through the search though). I want to know if it's possible to change the clutch on an 04' QP myself, given I have the correct tools to open and change. I have read that the clutch needs to be calibrated. What...
  3. My first scary problem... Oh dear.....

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Well, I've been lurking here for years and have enjoyed everyone's advice and tips. The free solutions are SO much better than the 10k solutions! And I loved breaking out a calculator to look for the square root of 3 to two decimal places while conducting searches. Anyway, I've reached a...

    QP5 2003-2012
    We have a 2007 Duo Select QP with 10,000 miles that will be out of warranty November this year. We are in San Francisco, are the first owner, and have mostly city (hill) miles. We love driving our public piece of art, but are concerned about potential post warranty expenses. We are getting...
  5. Mass Air Flow (MAF) lesson learned

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Hello all, Just wanted to relate an experience over the weekend. Drove down to Richmond from DC for XMAS to show the family the new toy. While down there the car started stalling when starting off. Letting the brakes release and having the car start to roll was about the only way to move from...
  6. Annual Maintenance

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Hey, I'm looking at purchasing a used 2006 coupe GT Manual shift. I was wondering if you could ballpark annual costs to keep the car in tip top shape. Every car is different but just an idea would be great. Do you need to take it to an authorized dealer?
  7. Incident Reporting for Clutch, F1 Pump, Transmission

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    In an effort to gather some data and quantify how quickly clutches wear, begin slipping, and require replacement, I created a multiple question "incident report" using DabbleDB. I also am attempting to quantify F1 Pump lifetimes. Please give me general feedback on the form. While I put in a...
  8. looking for new purchase advice

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    I have been reading about the Coupes for the last month or so. I agree with a lot of postings that the Maserati's seem to get bad press. All I hear is that a high mileage car is a car with 30k miles on it and the clutches need replacing often. How often do you have to change out the clutch...

    I have a 2002 maserati cambiocorsa m138, along with the "dealer car repair manual" from the internet, it says that that you need a special tool for bleeding the clutch. Is there any way to bypass this?
  12. Gransport Clutch warranty

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Hello, I purchased my 2005 Gransport last fall and the warranty is good for 1 more year. Very recently the clutch started to indicate problems. It started to smell like it was slipping / overheated. Has anyone ever had problems getting warranty on this type of thing or is it automatically...
