DIES ANYONE HAVE LITTLE GREMLINS IN THEIR F1 TRANSMISSION THAT HOP it INTO NEUTRAL AT TIMES EVEN WITH PLENTY OF CLUTCH LIFE LEFT?

IS THERE ANYTHING PREVENTATIVE WE CAN DO BEFORE THIS HAPPENS AGAIN? ANY USUAL SUSPECTS? THANKS MAS-HEADS!

Going into neutral under what circumstances? That's possibly a sign of clutch failure or tang spring failure. The clutch wear 'reading' is not gospel. More of an educated guess.

PS Capitals are not required ;)

I apologize for for screaming lol. Thanks for the reply. I actually am picking up a pristine 2006 GS with a new clutch and the actuator and system
Was electrically checked for possible shorts or problems. Nothing found so I’m excited. I’m just obsessive about being prepared for a breakdown. ;)

This can be caused by a number of things. Any odd detections or delays in response of your clutch or hydraulics will default your car to N. If the clutch parameters are within range and the clutch is new, flywheel is new or has been properly, then you need to read your F1 system parameters to see if anything is off. I would check your solenoid bleed rates, pressure at the slave, and time your pump cycle times. If any of these are off enough to allow the internal pressure to drop to 39 bar, your car will jump into N due to pressure recovery. Check the above and report back.

You're not being obsessive. This is not normal and is indicating that something is wrong.

Thank you very much.

So are you saying you currently have this issue? Or you want people to troubleshoot a nonexistent problem that you might have in the future?

Often the F1 system just needs a fresh fluid flush or has a failing pump if it's behaving like this. If you've had new actuators and clutch recently, I'm not sure that would be it unless it hadn't been bled well. As mentioned check the F1 parameters, leak down test, etc... but something isn't right if it's happening regularly

Best of Luck!
