Strange noise coming from transmission

There are 2 rods inside the transmission that had each gear on. The upper rod which is also the input shaft that goes through the clutch has 1, 3, 5. The lower rod that sits right under it has the other gears on it. Each one of those rods have bearings on each end. The upper rod may bearing may be bad and may have come apart inside the trans.

I have a manual transmission in my '04 Mustang. When I begin to depress the clutch, an odd grinding sound starts, not loud but enough to warrant concern. As I drive, the car sounds fine. Switching gears...

Worn throw out bearing, replace or the problem may damage other components. This requires dropping the entire transmission. this bearing sits between the clutch pressure plate and clutch slave assembly. When the clutch pedal is pressed, the bearing makes contact with the spinning clutch pressure plate. If defective, grinding/squealing noises may be heard. If the bearing fully fails, loose debris may damage other components. Replace immediately!!

Loud clanking noise in or outof gear if the clutch is not engaged

Sounds like a throw out bearing or pressure plate problem. Run it by a trany shop, and they should be able to tell quick and easily if that's the problem.

Well lucky for you there is a lemon law. Bring the car in for the state inspection, Request for them to be thorough, explain that you just bought it. The past owner is responsible for the repairs. If not, get reimbursed. I'm not sure what trani fluid it takes but call the dealer for that. The noise from the front end, the grinding could be anything, check the wheel bearings, steering components, rust on rotors, backing plates, and related items. The trany noise could be nothing or it could be clutch pedal linkage, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, or clutch asembily. It would need to be inspected to see if anything applies.

Loud knocking

Sounds like you may need a motor, or something in/on transmission. What is your oil pressure like?
