Weird Clutch/Trans noise.

Hey, all! I just picked up a 1994 Mustang GT. It's making a weird skippy chirping sound when I'm not touching the clutch. But when the clutch is engaged, it stops. Is this the throw out bearing? And how long do I have until that destroys my car? I'm just now learning a 5 speed, so I figured I'd replace it all soon, anyways, lol.

Yeah sounds like throw out bearing. If you still have the stock quadrant set up then try pulling up on the clutch pedal and it should adjust and take up any slack if there is some. If you have an aftermarket cable and quadrant you may need to adjust. For the short term the sound may just be a little annoying, but don't let it get bad.

So, I'm just gonna have it all replaced. How much do you guys think the total cost will be after labor? Like, the clutch kit and all that. I want just a stock, plain clutch.

Also, does throw out bearing = Release bearing?

I had my clutch replaced a few years ago and I want to say it was around 800 or 900. I have not really heard of it called the release bearing, but sounds like it could be. The only other "bearing" is the pilot bearing, which is where the trans goes into the back of the engine/crank.

If you have access to a car lift its not a hard fix. If not I got quoted for 450 to replace a rear main seal and for that you have to do a little bit more work to get to. But it's basically the same in labor.

I would say 750 bucks sounds about right. I don't know what basic clutches go for. I got a fox racing clutch for 300 bucks so its gotta be less than that.
