Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

03 350Z with 145k original clutch (as far as I know) when the engine is cold the clutch makes a grinding noise when engaged. That'll happen until the engine trans gets warm then there is a burning smell but the noise went away. I've heard clutch, TO bearing or slave cylinder. Any ideas?

From your description I would say that the throw out bearing has failed . As it will require the box removal to replace it I would seriously consider replacing the entire clutch assembly as it will mean not having to do the job again sooner that you would like. The fingers for the pressure place will be damaged and this will result in plate failure or early bearing failure again

Hi! Possible worn clutch disc, new clutch assembly needed, though a shop would have replace it.

    No faith in my mechanic skills? I think I can do it myself. But thanks for the response. Guess I'll start looking at a new clutch.

    Hi! Even with my skills, I wouldn't attempt it without a lift for the vehicle! It will set you back $1000 to &1500 bucks! Good luck!

Mid sixties Ford 4000. Suddenly decided to make severe grinding noise when trying to engage gears and cannot engage gears. Weirdly this does not always happen. Gears engage OK when engine not running


Hello, you may have more success in the proper category of lawn or farm stuff. Fortunately I have same Tractor. Sounds like clutch fork is not moving clutch the same way each time you press clutch. Could be clutch needs play removed. Sometimes there is a pivot ball for the clutch fork to rest on. When the pivot ball is worn the clutch fork can rock. Also remember RPM to give gears time to stop spinning before changing gears.

Hi Maury, Seems you have a number of different problems at the same time. The grinding sound when pushing the clutch pedal would seem to be the clutch thrust release bearing, which is located inside the bell housing and requires the removal of the gearbox to replace. The warning lights should come on each time the ignition is switched on and then they should extinguish after a few seconds. The illumination of these lights is a fail safe system to show that all warning systems are active. The radio will go off during the period when the starter is engaged as a relay shunts all power to the starter during that procedure. The starter motor uses more power from the battery than any other system. The manufactures have taken this into consideration when designing the circuitry and decided as many others have, to adopt the operation. If when starting from cold this does not happen and the radio plays, it is indicating either excessive drawing of power by the starter and may also be the cause of the grinding noise you experience? Regards John

My wife has a Peugot 307 petrol engine. When pulling off from cold, there is a grinding / grating noise. It only occurs when the car is moving and lasts 1 to 2 minutes. Dip the clutch and the noise...


Sticking clutch throw-out bearing arm or linkage/cable, or pedal, so that throw-out bearing is just barely and intermittently touching the throw-out plate of the clutch. Depressing the pedal slightly engages the bearing to the plate causing positive drive of the bearing, quieting the noise. After running a while, the bearing moves sufficient distance to disengage. Next time it happens, with the vehicle stopped, in neutral and with the parking brake set, stick your toes under the clutch pedal and pull it back, see if the noise stops or changes..

Chevy Aveo grinding noise from accelerator when A/C is on


It will be the ac compressor clutch that slipping when after it has been activated/engaged. This happens when the engine is winding up the compressor clutch is not engaging strong enough and start slipping. However as the engine rpm stabilize on the ac compressor has caught up (same rpm) no slipping occur and no noise. Was the clutch mechanism replaced with the compressor replacement? (however it need to be checked/repaired).

1996 pontiac grand am ac will not work


Ok this should be pretty easy... need a little more info... when you switch the control to AC ..have the engine at idle and listen for a "clicking" noise which is the AC clutch. If you are hearing that click and the ac is just not cold ... that is one thing. If you aren't hearing the clutch engage that is another ... so let me know and I can help you with either one, and we'll have it blowing cold it no time at all!

Whine sound when clutch is engaged; 1st mile


Then that would be the bearing, called a "throw-out" bearing as it is what pushes the pressure plate fingers in, & throws the clutch out so that you are not moving, or are changing gears.

These are usually pre-lubricated & sealed, after mileage the oil will rest in just one part of the bearing from being hot & used when you park it, until you use it.

More so in the cold weather, but once it spins a bit & warms up, the lubrication is again available, the noise goes away. It could do this for a long time, you'll notice it is always making the noise if the lubrication has completely seeped out of the bearing and if that happens, consider repairs before it becomes a constant howl.

good luck.

I have a 1994 XLT Ford Explorer, was running fine with no transmission problems. Parked vehicle during snow storm about two days later I got into the vehicle to move it again, put the vehicle into...


That don't sound good. If you shut the engine off and restart it, is the grinding noise still there? If you engaged it with wheels spinning there's a good possibility the you broke something inside trans or transfer. If you did that with engine idling, I find it hard to believe anything would break. As far as it not moving it could be something as simple as the brake pads are frozen to the rotors (cold weather). I guess it's possible you have the transfer case jammed somehow, but that doesn't explain the grinding noise in the trans. The park pawl is in the transmission, so when the trans is in park the only thing turning is the input shaft and maybe a clutch drum or two. The output shaft should be held still by the park pawl. If you have a push button on the dash to engage the 4X4, that means it's done with an electric motor, it's possible that motor failed. You could try pushing the vehicle by hand a little maybe you jar it loose.
I guess I'm not much help, sorry.
