The noise you hear is the 'clutch throwout bearing', which needs to be replaced.

I ve anissan datsun td 27 the clutch pedal doesnt go up when changing gears whats the problem

You have air in the clutch hydraulics, most likely you will need to replace the Master and slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch.

I own a 2011 nissan micra accenta .when changing up from 1st to 2nd gear on depressing the clutch it whines /growls why? it does not happen in other gear changing !


I'm only an amateur
on Datsun 240Z - 4 Speed (and 5 Speed) transmissions... but I do know a wee bit... about their
issues & symptoms.

One must have a serious cognitive challenge (sadly)
to look OUTSIDE a gearbox FOR A 1st to 2nd SHIFT
noise issue.

It probably growls & grinds in other gears as well...
just not as profoundly... Releasing the clutch merely
allows things to get looser... (where there should be
NO PLAY (looseness) at all).

but the folks that pulled the tranny... need to step up for their incompetence... A CLUTCH (cylinder & pedal) change is not CHEAP... (nor close...)

but (in my opinion) incredibly poor guesses...!!


If you live in Northern California, Bay Area... I'd seriously consider the opportunity to testify in a recovery action... on your behalf...
(and I'd recommend worms before law-suits
(H8 court)... Better idea would be to contact your LOCAL AUTO REPAIR CIVIL AUTHORITY..

I have drawers full of DATSUN parts... so it could be a real show & tell project...

Those gearboxes are really quite simple & beautiful.

If you CONTEMPLATE that there is an INPUT & OUTPUT shaft
that your intermediate gears spin at a HIGH RATIO difference in FIRST ... or NEARLY as a solid shaft in your "HIGH" gear
is a SINGLE BEARING right in between those shafts...

->> Main-shaft CENTER bearing... <<
(tiny needle bearings... in my Datsun 240Z...
(left untreated can ruin Input & OUTPUT surfaces)).

There are OTHER REASONS that could be EASILY SEEN
by a mediocre transmission specialist... (gear surface failure)...
but ALL my experience says the MAINSHAFT center bearing is the PRIMARY SUSPECT.

The MOST EXPENSIVE part of the job is pulling & placing the tranny in the car... Cracking the case is pretty easy...
but the bearings are available ...


SEAL & gasket replacements are a NO BRAINER
(but obviously for your clutch & pedals clowns... that should be written down (in whatever COMIC BOOK they use as SHOP MANUALS))...

In my humble opinion...

Your biggest problem NOW is to get EITHER YOUR MONEY BACK... or substantial performance for what you have ALREADY RENDERED PAYMENT.

Funny sound from the gear when in motion

If it's a high pitched whining noise it's will more than likely be the bearing in clutch assembly. When your drivin push clutch pedal down if noise disappears then will be bearing in clutch. If a automatic it might be a wheel bearing.

Squeeling noise when pressing the clutch

That noise is coming from the throw-out bearing, its dry and worn needs to be replaced. While you are in there you should do the whole clutch job becuse you need to remove the tranny to change that bearing which consists of Pressure plate,clutch plate throw-out bearing center bearing and resurfacing of flywheel.maybe even a new slave cylinder. Good Luck
