Clutch noise?? Please help!

Ok so I was driving back from San francisco and then started hearing this noise every time I step on the clutch. Anyone know what it is?? I have a stage 3 clutch with the TREMEC 3550 with Lucas automatic oil ( which I was told to use, but I've hear synchromesh is better) pro5.0 short shifter and an aluminum drive shaft. PLEASE HELP NEED TO SELL VERY SOON.

Re: Clutch noise?? Please help!

what noise are you hearing, is it only when you first start pushing in the clutch then it goes away, does it happen letting out the clutch etc? Can you be more descriptive.

Just a guess I would say without hearing it that it could be the throwout bearing

Is it a squeal? Describe the sound and exactly when it makes the noise.

Well the noise is every time I push on the clutter. And I soon as I let it go the noise is gone.

Re: Clutch noise?? Please help!

if its when you push in the clutch petal then as said if its a squeek, tick, etc type sound its probably the pilot bearing or throwout bearing. Its a cheap part.... but requires the trans to come out to get to it. While its out is a VERY good idea to replace the pilot bearing and inspect everything, if miles are anything over like 20k might as well change the clutch while your at it lol.

Before you do all that try taking up adjustment in the stock cable to buy you more time. If its an OEM clutch quadrant then just push the seat back put your left hand on the clutch and your right hand on the quadrant (after you push the clutch to the floor). The quadrant is white and above the gas petal, you will see the clutch cable over it. Slowly ease out the clutch while holding tension on the clutch quadrant. You cant stop it from turning but you can put pressure on it to hold it back where it was when the clutch was pushed in to the floor. As it gets closer to being all the way out (the clutch petal) you will hear a click. Do a couple clicks. This will start to take up slack in your clutch cable. The petal will be firmer and higher up. Drive the car after two clicks. The car should not slip. To test for slipping have the gas held steady with your foot and slowly push in the clutch while driving like 45mph or so. If you can push in the clutch half an inch from the top where you start before the rpms start to jump up then its ok. Any less is to tight they say.

Adjust as needed to get the top of the petal firm etc. To unadjust simply lift up on the underside of the clutch petal.

Depends on how long it would take you to drop the transmission out. Just like SpectorV said, if you drop the tranny, you might as well replace the whole clutch kit, including throwout bearing, and pilot bearing. I've dropped so many transmissions its not even funny, I can have one on the ground in about 45 minutes.

From experience get the car as high as you can and you need a swivel fitting and alot of patience

I've done it in 2 1/2 hours with a friend helping me but it's one of those projects that while your down there, you might as well do a few other things like the pilot bearing, clutch, and inspect the flywheel too. It really sucks having to do all that work twice just to save a buck. If money is tight I guess you have to do what you gotta do.
