98 GT noise?

When I start the car it's fine for about 10 seconds and then it starts squealing. If I push on the clutch it goes away. If I take my foot of the clutch it goes back to squealing. I looked my belt and it look like it was about to come off? O.o

Sounds like a throw out bearing issue. How new is your clutch?

Yep the infamous throw out bearing squeak...mines been making the noise for over a year now, refuse to replace it as my clutch grabs great, eventually I'm sure the TOB will fail, than its time for a whole complete clutch job, with a ford oem TOB, properly greased lol...

Ok. Do a search for the clutch pedal free play mod. Azure made a nice write-up for it. It may or may not fix the squeak but it's worst a try.

Oh you'll know it when it finally goes, they sound like death.

Like NJ said, if your clutch is still working fine, just live with it until it finally drives you nuts. It will give you a chance to save up for a clutch replacement. Whatever that costs in your area. I think the more immediate issue here is that belt that you say looks ready to fall off. Get that taken care of or it will leave you stranded...

Yeah. I though it was the belt making noise because it looks like it's about to come off and rubbing against something else.
