Clutch problems

My 2001 GT's clutch is making a loud whining sound when in any gear but when I press the clutch pedal the sound goes away. Does anyone know what this could be?

Sounds like a bad throwout bearing

+1, mine is starting to squeak too... ugh I hate cars sometimes lol.

Trans has to come out to do it and if the clutch is older you might as well do the clutch too. The good news is that if you are good at working on these things and have access to a lift its only a 3-4 hr job working slow with a buddy.

Try the clutch free play mod, it might help keeping the tob off the pressure plate eliminating the squeak

Yep mines squeaking too. Real annoying and it's not as easy on jack stands so it hasn't been replaced yet

I'm gonna mess with my firewall adjuster and see if I can't get it to quiet down, has worked in the past for me. If not... well... I've been planning on doing something with the trans anyway although I finally got it going smooth into 2nd and 3rd when I rip the shifter.

I just went into the garage and adjusted it out two clicks. I'll see what it sounds like on the drive to work tomorrow. Finally a week of just sun and I can drive it to work without worrying about a thunderstorm... Although black vinyl gets HOLY CRAP hot in the sun... I need one of those shade thingers and I need to get these windows tinted...

Tell me about it, I'm in Yuma, AZ so I usually don't have to worry about the rain...but the heat! 115° outside means like 150° inside my car. Black leather and my Mach has the retro metal shift knob. I have to keep a sock to slip over it just so I don't burn my hand

Well I sold a bunch of parts on the corral yesterday so had to drive the beater today so as not to have a bunch of crap banging around my trunk/backseat...

But yeah 115 degrees... definitely know that feeling... At least you have leather, the only downside to doing my upholstery with the TMI Vinyl is that it is yoga balls hot sitting outside. Definitely going to invest in a sun shade like...meow...
