2001 Mustang GT Transmission noise?

Guys I need help...my 01 Mustang GT has a noise in the transmission that almost sounds like the start of metal on metal contact. I'm thinking its my pilot bearing or input shaft. The transmission is bone stock. The noise hasn't been there since I got the car 2 years ago, but its slowly showing its age. Does anyone know what this problem might be? It is the stock 5 speed manual transmission by the way.

Throwout bearing is another possibility

Can you tell us a little about when the noise occurs?

Can you hear it when idling, or do you have to be moving?

Does clutch in/ clutch out change the sound at all? Make it go away?

Most common on these cars is either TOB or Pilot Bearing


Bullitts are better than Bullets

I seem to be having the same problem on my auto. Is it something different in the autos?

Also if you still have the stock quadrant, try adjusting it by pulling up on the pedal really hard them pushing it back in

The noise occurs the moment the car is running...from idle to 5th gear. I have a full exhaust so I can't tell if the noise increases as I drive. But if I park in a parking space between two cars and roll the windows down the noise is definitely there. Its not loud and obnoxious but very annoying to me at least. Btw...the noise made itself known to me after I had my throwout bearing, clutch, and flywheel replaced/installed. I didn't do that myself due to not knowing how at the time...so I couldn't tell you how things looked. I'm just trying to see what a good starting point would be before I start taking things apart.

I've had the same problem for about 2 years now, for the about a year a half it only made the noise when clutch was pressed to the floor, as of last 6 months it makes the noise constantly, it definetly quiets wayyy down when the car gets hot and up to temp tho..still shifts like butter, clutch is a bit jumpy when cold but that's it, pretty positive its the throw out bearing

The TOB was replaced, with clutch, cable, and flywheel. That was done late last year so its all fairly new. I'm thinking its something internal or the pilot bearing. Mine how ever doesn't change when the car is up to temp, and with the idle a little lower due to the car being hot it sounds ever so slightly louder. it probably needs a tune though, it idles between 750ish and a low 800.

Was the tob replaced with a Ford OEM? If not they are almost guarantees to start making noise in as little as a few months...

^^^i always hear this, and I hope I don't jinx myself, but I've had a napa t.o bearing in my car for two years with no problems.

So the noise is there even when the car is in neutral?

That's awesome to hear, every time I've heard of someone going with none ford OEM tob in these cars, they start chirping pretty quickly, good for you!...yea its like a swirling type noise when it's in neutral now, early in the morning when its cold its LOUD, once it warms up it quiets down alot

If you have an 01 you likely have an early run 3650. Not the most reliable things in the world. Also if the shop that did your work filled to 3.8 quarts and not the updated 3.2 fill amount you could be having windage issues among other things...
