Clutch disk or gear disk or could it be engine seat
Whenever i am on gear 1 or 2 (slow movement), there is a kind of a vibration (loud noise) either from the engine or the shaft, shaking the whole car back and forth, can't figure it out, on gear 3/4/5 it disappeared
Re: Clutch disk or gear disk or could it be engine seat
There is a recall for this-go to the dealer-it is a clutch bearing machining defect or something like that-they will fix it if your car was affected as indicated by your VIN number. they have to verify the problem first then they will do it for free.....should take about 3hrs

When you are in gear at idle with your foot on the clutch you have placed an axial load on the crank which is pushed forward in the main bearings against a thrust bearing. I suspect a failing thrust face on this bearing as it only works under a clutch release load. The only other point that is under load is the clutch throw out bearing but if that is failing you should be hearing a tinny type of rattle when you have the foot on the clutch
IT appears that you have a problem with the starter pinion over ride clutch or ring gear teeth. I would pull the starter and have the starter motor bench tested and check the condition of the teeth on the ring gear on the flywheel
Possible the faults can be related to the following:
1. check the clutch settings- if the clutch is slipping this noise can come up. release the clutch very slowly and check if the noise reduces.
2.Possible that the drive links, the drive shaft , bearing assembly is faulty.
3. Possible there is loose linkages on the brake assembly which could get into the movement of the wheel and make noise.
4. The noise can be within the engine, possible that the belt slipping, water pump bearings, alternator bearings or idler units.
if you are saying that there is a whirring noise whenever the clutch is engaged, it may be one of the two causes: it's either you have a loose spline hub on the clutch shaft OR there is misalignment on the engine and transmission resulting to the forward and backward movement of the clutch disk on the shaft..
you cannot get the car into gear.. hmhm, that is called a dragging clutch and it is usually experienced when the flywheel and pressure plate do not fully release the clutch disk in its disengaged positions.. Dragging clutch may be due to:
1. excessive clutch pedal free play or travel
2. improper adjustmen of clutch fingers or release levers
3. warped pressure plate, flywheel (which needs to be brought at the machine shop), or clutch disk
4. loose or worn out clutch disk facings
5. loose or worn out clutch linkage parts
6. accumulation of dust in the clutch
7. engine idling is too fast
8. tight/ burred splines
9. worn out pilot bearing or bushing
10. muisaligned beel housing
