Clutch makes a squealing noise

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 4cyl. When I push the clutch pedal in, I hear a squealing sound. The clutch still works and I'm able to drive it. No loss of power, just the squealing sound when I push the clutch pedal in. Any suggestions?

Hello;
The throw out bearing is going oout. The reason you hear the squeal when you push in the clutch is that is when the throw out bearing spins up. Rest of the time it does not spin.It is irratating, You should replace the entire clutch assembly when you replace the throw out bearing. Hope this helps, rate me high.
Thanks;

My question is what needs replaced? The clutch? Master and slave cylinder? I don't want to order parts I don't need so if anyone else has run into this please don't hesitate to help a fellow out


I would suggest looking at your slave cylinder first . Check for obvious signs of leaking . That is what generally goes out first then losing your fluid your master cylinder goes out or at very least needs to be bled . Sounds more like your master has also gone out .

Clutch noise


Bearing noises in a clutch system are easily distinguished by running a few simple tests. Start the engine and leave the transmission in neutral. If a transmission makes noise when it is in neutral it is often a worn input shaft bearing. Now depress the pedal until the clutch just engages. This is the point where the release bearing is just contacting the pressure plate fingers. If you begin to hear a squealing sound this is likely a worn release bearing. If a whirling noise is present when the clutch pedal is fully depressed it is probably the pilot bearing.

If the clutch was worn out, the transmission would not go into reverse or low gear with the engine running.
This clutch is activated by hydraulic pressure like your brakes. The hydraulic part may not be working correctly.
To replace the clutch you have to remove the transmission.

I have a 1999 dodge ram 1500 when you push the clutch in all the way there is a grinding noise and tough to engage into gear and there is a high pitched squeeling noise that comes and goes as the pedal...


you need to replce the cluch and preasure plate. the clutch is gone, its hard to shift because there is nothing left to pushout on the plate and the squeeling is from the same problem, the clutch works like brakes, when the pads are gone and you step on brake you get asqeeling sound from it being metal to metal the same thing is happening with your clutch

When i push my clutch pedal in, i hear what sounds like screeching belts. what is this noise?


The noise you are hearing is caused by a part called the "Clutch Pressure Plate Release Bearing" Also called a "Throw out bearing"), you will need to pull the transmission out and replace it, of course while you have it apart you will likely need to replace the clutch disk and the pressure plate as well and have the flywheel machines flat again. Below is a picture of the release bearing in your truck.
