Chirping clutch...

Hey guys, so I take my car out yesterday to a local car show and noticed a bird like chirping noise when I was stopped at a light. When I stepped on my clutch the noise would stop considerably. Someone mentioned to me about a clutch bearing...??? What do you guys think?

Re: Chirping clutch...

When the clutch throwout bearing goes bad, it squeeks like that. Actually, mine and my disturbs car have the same condition. As soon as I get the guts to mess with clutches I can find out for sure. Keep in mind these are both '94 5.0s and classics may be different. To me, sounds like throwout bearing.

You're right needsomemods, I dropped off my car last night at my mechanics and it is the bearing. He's gotta change a seal down there so he'll do that at the same time. Thanks!

throwout bearing, I had to have 4 put in my 01 V6... and it still did it

I would recommend doing a clutch, resurface/new flywheel, piliot bearing, pivot ball stud, fork arm, basically all of it and then check the end play on the input shaft of the trans to ensure its good.

Gonna have to take the trans out, may as well get your moneys worth

also look into an Heavy Duty Ford racing throwout bearing


DO NOT GO WITH ANY OTHER BRAND THROWOUT BEARING stay FORD

Thanks bro! I'll talk to my guy today and tell him to stay with ford. I am getting a seal changed and I think it might be the one you mentioned. It's been leaking the past few months. I noticed it over the winter when the car was sitting.
