Clutch problem ! Help !

I have a 98 v6 mustang , 5 speed .

When i bought it the throughout bearing was bad an it was knocking . So i went an bought a new clutch , i put it in , put the tranny back in , and i left it on the jack stands , an went to go an act like i was driving it , an the clutch is still knocking , but not as loud as it was before i replaced the clutch . But now i ran into another problem , the back tires are locked up , i put it in first gear an eased off the clutch an gave it gas an the rpms would go down slowly an the back tires were not spinning , so i tried reverse , did the same thing .
I had read on here that it could be the flywheel ?
Anyone have any ideas on what is going on ?
Any info will help !
Thankyou !
-Justin

It sounds like you've got a bad transmission.

Is that the wrong way ?

the clutch springs retainer should be on the pressure plate side

You could make sure your rear brakes aren't seized up too, you never know.

Also the closest and easiest way to get that GT sound is to get GT mufflers.

Could be the input shaft, but is the sound kinda like big a55 rocks rolling around? If so you probably have a blow trans.

Dumb question, and I mean no offense with asking this, did you put the driveshaft back in? A buddy actually did that with his camaro..called me out to the shop, I took one look under and started laughing.

right on, be real careful man.. without knowing the cause you may be playing with fire.. don't want something to go or lock up at 60+ on the highway or something

and id go with a set of flowmasters or magnaflow mufflers with an x pipe or divorce duals over a single stock gt can.. you would have to do duals anyhow for the gt mufflers to work right

You can get GT or maybe even Cobra mufflers from the junkyard that would be my first place to look. You could go to a Ford dealer but their parts department will probably charge you an arm and a leg for them. I say use those mufflers because it has a good chance of keeping the exhaust sound low rather than a higher rasp with aftermarket mufflers which you aren't looking for.

What year is your stang?

And if you keep the cats on, flowmasters or magnaflows really don't have a rasp or tin can sound. Mines a 95 v6, with a weird x pipe (looks like 2 y pipes end to end tbh) and flowmaster 50s, growls and rumbles and I've taken it to red line and no rasp. Flow 10s with stock cats and divorce duals sound incredible. There's a guy on youtube with that exact setup on his 97(I think) and its awesome, but loud.. depends what you're looking for really, just know it'll never sound exactly like a v8.

Check the clutch fork , there is a ball otherwise known as a pivot bolt at the top of the tranny caddy corner of the shaft if u don't have that clip hooked up the fork will bounce and also won't completely compress the clutch so it won't shift right . Just raise the car , in book the clutch cable and shine a light in there to see you should be able to push it back up if that's the case long as u in hook the cable

Also, the pivot balls on the t5 bellhousings have a tendency to really wear downand go out of round. Check to see if you have any up and down play with the clutch fork, if so, something around the throw out bearing could be installed wrong.

Did you have any issues with the knocking before your old clutch went or? What led up to this?

Nvm, I just read the first post over.. can you post a video of what you're hearing? If you can, try to get the sound under the hood, around the bellhousing, and in the car.. if may be something stupidly simple lol

40s I do know don't work well with a v6, 10s super 44s or 50s are the best ones to use. 40s idk what it is about them but they sound like a lawn mower at high rpms when you get off the go pedal

Look up "mustang v6 mac prochamber" on youtube. Mine is on there with an o/r prochamber and flowmaster 10's. Mine sounds great. It sound better and meaner than my 5.0L eddie bauer explorer, which is stock minus an sct 93 race tune.

Thats your problem! If you had heard one you would have already had one installed. There is nothing you can do to the 3.8 exhaust that sounds half as good as having a prochamber. I like the flowmaster 10's with it, and cherry bomb extremes work well too if your trying to save a little.

I went through several setups on mine. Cats, no cats, h pipe, divorced duals, super 40's, magnaflows. They all sounded like garbage. Now im not embarrassed to be heard.

Lol, there's literally noone around here that has a prochamber on anything, let alone a 6er mustang.

I've been considering a catless divorce dual setup with flow 10s closer to the front end, with turn down dumps under the rear of the cabin.
I love the sound of my car with the 50s but its just not loud or throaty enough, the sound really doesn't wake up til about 2500, before that its a very very low rumble

Keep your current setup and just have the cats removed. That is where you should start if you like the sound and just want more volume. Also the 50's are more mellow. Try an original 40 or a 10...and a prochamber to really set it off! Ive done all the setups possible except borla mufflers.

You wont regret an o/r prochamber and flow 10's. Have you watche my video. If so just know is sounds even louder and meaner I person, that video was shot with my cell phone.

Nah, I haven't seen your vid, can you post a link?
Yeah, I believe 50s are the most tame in FM lineup. 40s, I just don't think they have a good sound on a v6, I've used them in the past on a gm 3.8 and they just sounded tinny and it rattled inside the pipes at mid/high rpm

I've been looking at dual outlet flow 10s and maybe do sidepipes along with dumps.

Ill look into a getting a prochamber in the future, once I have a little extra loot to play with

No cats, upped all the piping to 2 1/2", mac prochamber, and flowmaster 10's.

Ive heard the tune can change the sound as well but I haven't noticed a difference running the 93 octane race tune.
