TOB and clutch

Alright so I had my engine replaced like 8 months ago and I had a place call engine solution do it (never again they suck!). I would have done it myself but I don't have the tools at my house considering I moved and couldn't bring all my tools, anyways my throw out bearing squeals when sitting in neutral and also when I am in reverse and start letting the clutch out it shakes so bad, I know I am giving it enough gas where is not trying to die out. I'm thinking the resurfaced the flywheel and hacked it up. So now I'm considering a new flywheel with a new clutch. Opinions and ideas and tell me how I should feel and tell the place that did my engine and clutch. Thanks guys and gals

Definitely a clutch/flywheel issue, usually caused by NOT resurfacing.
If the release bearing is 'squealing' constantly not 'squeaking' intermittently then it's likely about to fail and freeze, leaving you stranded. If its just a squeak or chirp it could go on for a while like that w/o too much issue.

That's unimpressive

Re: TOB and clutch

I had some what of a same issue. I went to have the tranny flushed (because I don't know if it was ever done and wanted the fluid inspected as well) and ask them to find out where that awful sqeaking noise was coming from when I hit the pedal. I assumed it was the pedal or cable. Well turns out the guy said I needed to replace it but had awhile before it went totally out and left me stranded,. So I ordered a clutchkit and pilot bearing from AM 30 min later and she's at the shop getting it installed. I didn't go with a flywheel replacement because they told me they would let me know how this one looks. Turns out, it is in pretty good shape. They still asked if I wanted to anyways or just have them resurface it. All in all, the total cost is only going to be $550ish
