Repost...still no help.

OK so here's what's going on...98 mustang 3.8. i didn't notice it until about a month ago that there is a small, quiet squeak coming from under the car.
i tried to search for the cause with no help until this morning, while sitting in my driveway talking on my phone, i placed my foot on the clutch, not enough to move it more than half an inch, just resting my foot on the clutch and the noise stops! i noticed it right away that the squeak was gone, so i moved my foot off the clutch, and it comes back and then rest my foot back on it and tada...no squeak. i'm just wondering/praying its not something inside my trans...anybody have a thoughts/suggestions???

Warped pressure plate or throwing bearing would be my guess.

Sounds exactly like my throw out bearing did before I replaced it.

Throw-out bearing. My car does the same thing. It stops once the engine and trans are both warmed up.
You have to take the transmission out to replace it, so, it's common practice to just let it keep squeaking until, either it drives you completely nuts or the clutch needs replacing.
It's the exact same amount of labor to replace the squeaky bearing as it is to replace the whole clutch.

It's about $150 for a clutch kit. If you just replace the throw out bearing you will be pulling your trans down again. Clutch kits last at least five years.

Do I need to purchase a stage 1 kit to keep it stock? I see some stage 2 and 3 kits online but Im not sure if I have to modify anything? Will putting in a stage 2 or 3 give me any noticable increase in power/torque or shifting?

id just get a Good parts store replacement. Get a machine shop to resurface the flywheel and throw on a new rear main engine seal for insurance.....done

Unless your adding forced induction or another power adder--keep it stock. You will notice only a stiffer pedal effort...

I have a stock replacement clutch, pressure plate and flywheel for sale, they look brand new. They came with my car and I don't need them.

you can change the ToB without dropping the bellhousing, a lot less work if you clutch is in good shape. although the exhaust has to come down if your still running the factory Y pipe. but drop the trans and you can pull the fork arm out of the bellhousing and swap the bearing. replacement bearings are pretty cheep also compared to replacing it all and turning the flywheel
