Eagle Talon 95 ESi manual 5 speed whining noise related to clutch
Basically it makes a kinda whining rattling sound when I start the car up after sitting for a long time and cold. If I press in the clutch it completely stops the noise. It only makes the noise for a few minutes but does sound pretty loud, but after it starts to warm or if I take off driving it just goes away and never returns until the car has sat overnight once again. One person said it's the throw out bearing if stops making the noise when engaging the clutch. The good thing is doesn't make the noise constantly and throughout the day I won't hear it again. Most online seem to have constant noise probs and mine is only at start up. Possibly once the trans fluid coats the noisy bearing it temporarily solves the problem but I'd like to have a really good idea before I take it to a shop. Thanks in advance

Re: Eagle Talon 95 ESi manual 5 speed whining noise...
Who ever told you its the throw out bearing was wright. its an enclosed bearing so it does not run in any oil. if it only makes noise when it cold or sets for a while its common and dose not warrent taking it to a shop. all there going to tell you is you need a new clutch$$$$witch you do not need.

If it feels like the whole car (dash & steering wheel area) is shaking at idle in drive then it is often a bad engine mount causing this vibration throughout the car. An actual isolated rattling noise from under the car could be the catyalitic converter if it sounds like its in the exhaust system.
You may have a vaccume leak that is keeping your duct doors open in the center of its travel. If you have knobs you may have a broken control cable. See if you hear a hissing noise behind the dash. That will get you moving in the right direction. Wish you luck!
Sounds like you have a timing or elctrical issues, try checking your voltage from your battery and alterantor, if it checks out fine move on to your timing. The timing is tricky but very critical with these cars
I own a 95 talon esi aut trans. It's on the driver's side, in the front, next to (about a foot inside) of the wheel. just unbolt the about 10 bolts and keep it level binging it down, youll be able to get to the filter then too. You'd want to check a manual about the tpe and quantity of ATF ( like a Haynes, available @ auto parts stores for about $15, 20.) I just used Amsoil full synthetic, it's compatable with all AT systems.
its related.. its a problem somewhere in the fuel intake system. you should have this checked out. If there isnt any loss of power but just dies and reves at the same engine speed ,, have your transmission or torque converter looked at.
Yeah, usually this is the throw-out bearing and the input shaft combined. Mine does this (just a little bit) and it's never bothered me or gotten worse... so I haven't bothered.
Definitely a gearbox issue somewhere, but it could be any number of things... the most likely (above) is easy to check, but depending on whether there is any physical shaking when the noise occurs, it could even be a mis-aligned pressure-plate or just the plate itself.. if it's broken any springs/rubber absorbers or any part of the diaphragm. (you push the pressure-plate away from the friction-plate... it's no longer turning with the gearbox... and therefore the noise goes away.
If the pressure and friction plates were changed as part of your "kit", then they could be poorly aligned? (although unlikely because the input shaft spline is usually pretty tight.)
Last guess would be the input shaft itself... but it would have to be in a bad way (bent or something?) to make the kind of noise you are describing.
