Throw-out bearing is perhaps warn... or the clutch plate could possibly be warped abit... but likely the bearing if the transmission isn't slipping.

    i guess that i should add... the throw-out bearing is a round bearing that is used to disengage the cluth so that you can change gears... it spins because the rest of the clutch is spinning as well.

Noise at start Nissan Frontier 2001. Sounds like valves.

Make sure the oil filter is fitted with a return valve, some after market filters don't have this valve, and the oil drains back to the sump when stopped, It takes a second or two after starting to build up pressure with type of filter, so there is a rattle.

2001 nissan frontier is blowing ignition fuses when you let out on the clutch in first gear and reverse

Hi Brent,

Wow! That is a dilema! The only thing I can think of is that there is possibly a wiring harness that is rubbed through and when the engine rocks when the clutch is engaged, the wiring harness is shorting to ground. If you can tell me exactly WHICH fuse is blowing I can possibly help you to locate the source of the problem. Please also include WHICH ENGINE your Nissan is equipped with and let me know if it is 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive.
