NEED HELP!

my car is doing some weird noise. its a shaking or rattling sound coming from the transmission it seems, but when i press on the clutch it goes away. a mechanic told me that it was the throw down bearing or something like that that its connected to the pressure plate and it might need lubricating or i might need to replace it. he said that the bearing is inexspensive like 40 bucks but that the labor is expensive. does anyone have any ideas what it could be or if he is right?

Re: NEED HELP!

It could be the throw out bearing but I can't recall ever hearing it rattle, usually it squeaks, but then again I've never personally experienced a bad TOB.

The TOB will go out, it happens and the part can be picked up. I can see why a shop will say it will be expensive, but if you are confidant enough to replace your clutch you can certainly replace the TOB yourself.

Re: NEED HELP!

go on craigslist and go to auto parts under your city and type in "mechanic", theres usually mechanics looking for side work on craigslist who will do it for literally half the price, and im not sure about the problem its self i would however get 3 or 4 opinions before purchasing parts of any kind

Re: NEED HELP!

i went through 4 throwout bearings....

when you replace it (its a cheap *** part) you can go with a better built unit vs the ford one (which sucks). I would also recommend replacing the throwout bearing, pilot bearing, clutch, pressure plate, resurfacing the flywheel, inspect/replace the fork arm if needed as well as the pivot ball stud and check the inputshaft for the correct amount of end play. Finally check the clutch cable and replace if its rough or stretched.

All together you can go back with an OEM clutch which are good in 99-01 mustangs from the factory. Its not expensive part wise to do all this and its the same basic work to do it while the transmission is out.

I might let ford do it as they have a warranty on the parts and the labor (generally but remember clutch is a wear and tear item so they can be *** holes about it at times)

Re: NEED HELP!

My 94 auto is doing the same rattle/shaking....seems to be around 1100-1300 RPM @ 55-60 km/h. I have never run into anything like this on any vehicle have owned and no one I know has any idea what it is or why it would be doing it.
Anyone here help me out? It gets really annoying and since trying build up a nice car for my wife, I sure would like get it solved before something serious happens.

Thx in advance
