Chattering noise from clutch

Hey everyone. I have a 98 Mustang GT 4.6 liter with a 5-speed transmission. Last couple days I've been hearing a chatter noise almost like a bearing coming from the clutch in front of transmission under the car. I thought it was the transmission dust cover that they put on but it wasn't my question is.. the clutch seems to still be strong but is it possible the throw out bearing is going bad?? Car shifts fine and there's no slip in the clutch.

Unfortunately, yes. Both the throw out bearing or the pilot bearing can fail before the clutch wears out.

Does the noise change, at all, if you depress the clutch pedal?

Does it only do it in 1st when rolling out from a stop? My car has been doing this for a while now. Only does it once the car has been driven for a while.

All I know to do is pull the trans and inspect.

Yes the noise does change when I push in clutch. But just for a second until it's all the way to the floor. As for your answer billgluckman.it does it as soon as I start the car and then I hear it every time I'm stopped at a light. Thanks for response straybullit. I read a lot of the forums on here and you always have good answers. I have one more question I'm going to do stage 3 clutch in it. I found some on ebay pretty decent price have you ever heard of the brand F1 and if so are they good I found them for about 250

I don't know of anyone who has that clutch so I don't have an opinion on it.

I do recommend using a factory Ford throw out bearing though.

When it comes to bearings, use OEM. As far as the noise, you probably are going to be looking at a new throw out bearing and pilot bearing. But I have good news!! that transmission is easy. as. hell. to remove. Honestly though, I wouldn't replace that until it gets bad enough to make actual scary noises

Thanks for all the replies. I'm going to do the whole clutch soon. Also Straybullit it's a FX clutch not a FI. Any thoughts on the FX stage 3 clutch???

Get an exedy mach 400 11" clutch (the 01-04 unit) and upgrade to an 11" flywheel. "Stages" are advertising gimmicks and mean jack ****, go by the torque rating. The clutch I mentioned is good for 500ft lbs and is $230 on AM after 6% off. Pedal feel is lighter than stock too. You need to do the flywheel with the new clutch anyway so might as well go to 11".

As for the throwout bearing, the links provided were to Ford Racing. Those are not the OEM units, the OEM ones are different. Go to a dealer and get the oem pilot and throwout.

So today I got under my car and it seems my tail housing bushing is worn and I'll probably be needing a new yoke. I believe this explains some of the things I've been experiencing.

I took it for spin afterwards to try to duplicate the problem and the car started to make a new noise. It sounded like creaking and popping from the clutch area. I'm guessing this is my pilot bearing.

Guess ill be ordering a clutch kit soon and going in for final diagnosis.
