Clutch problems

My clutch is squeaking every time i engage it in second and third.
Is this bad?

It's not good!

I wonder why it only does it in second and third though?
If it were clutch related, one would think that it would squeak every time the clutch pedal was pushed, no matter which gear...

It is likely the throw out bearing but, again, it would squeak every time that the clutch is disengaged, whether it is in gear or not.

Yeah that is weird... Well, start with the small stuff. These cars are old nowadays and if the original quadrant/cable are in there its a good idea to get the whole Max Motorsports kit and replace everything. Should be done regardless as a preventative thing at this point.


For a quickie shot in the dark at fixing this, go grab your clutch pedal with your hand and yank towards you HARD. If you have the stock plastic self adjusting quadrant, this will take out any slack in the cable.
