Tip & How-To about 2002 BMW M3

A WHINEING SOUND WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR FOOT OFF THE CLUTCH

This means your throw out barring is out. Very Expensive to fix because it is in the center of your transmission. This sound comes on when you are not in gear and you take your foot off the clutch while idling.

i have a knocking noise coming from my front driver's side of my buick regal when i drive slowly and speed up (think coming to a stop sign, not necessarily bumpy terrain). it doesn't happen all the t


Noises can be very difficult to fix. The customer and mechanic don't always hear the same noise. I would recommend taking it to a different shop and taking the mechanic for a ride to verify the noise.
Could be a motor or transmission mount, something in the transmission, or other things.

2000 yr.isuzu 250 kb diesel has a noise coming from gearbox area when moving into 5th gear


Its a manual trans right? Those are probably worn syn rings in the transmission, or a loose throw out bearing on the clutch. but if it was a throw out bearing it should be happening in all gears. So its probably worn sync rings in the trans. this means you need your trans rebuilt. go to a local trans shop. to make it shift easier for now, try to match the speed of the car with the speed of the engine. what i mean is when upshifting to 5th gear, wait for a sec til the engine drops in rpms to shift (wait til the rpms are they would be right after you shift into gear). This will allow you to shift without syncs, and make it an easier shift. don't worry its easier then it sounds. but best to get it fixed

which side of the clutch does throw out bearing go on


The throw out bearing will be on the outside of the clutch assemble. What it does is push against the fingers in the center of the pressure plate.
