I have a 88 Chevy 1500 pickup with 4speed and OD, manual trans. When i push in the clutch it doesn't sound like it is stopping the gears, and makes a loud low pitched grinding sound that i can feel through the clutch pedal. When i am stopped and shift into first it wants to die like i don't have the clutch pushed in at all. I have been told its the throw out bearing

Will it physically fit? yes. Will it be a direct replacement any everything hook right up and plug right in? If we are talking about an automatic then no. 1994's wiring was completely different than the 1997. Can it be made to work? possible, but I believe it would be more trouble trying to make it work than if the correct transmission were located and installed. If it is a cost issue where he has a good trans out of a 1994 he might see if a salvage yard will do some partial trading for the correct trans.
No, By pushing in the clutch to stop the hum all you are stopping from turning is the transmission and ( transfur case if 4 wheel drive ) the engine is still running ..and some parts in the rear differential . I have had 4 nissan pickups and currently drive a 1995 pickup, without actually hearing the noise I would look toward the transmission, these Manual transmissions are very prone to bearing failure. This has happened to 2 of the one's I have had including the one I have now. You can also see as time goes by if the noise is quieter in fourth gear than others because this is direct drive and not as many trans bearings are involved Good Luck
yea thats possible, the trans has servos that change gears, have a diagnostic done at a trasmission shop, a quick hook up to a computer will tell if there are any servo faults, it may be a minor issue and just needs a adjustment, or could be a sign that the whole trans is on its way out. but you should have it checked as soon as possible. good luck and take care
The trans in your truck had some problems in that era with overdrive. You will need ot check a few things to be sure it is not internal. The overdrive would often fail in those units due to the o rings used instead of lip seals.
Check the temp sensor. If it is bad the trans will not go into od. A defective solenoid in the trans for overdrive could cause it not to go in.
Check the fluid, if it is black, you may have burnt the clutches. I have know people who have driven the toyo's for years with no od. It is the same as the old three speed auto.
Sounds like the release bearing is in backwards! No check valve. If the peddle was pushed, it would pop the slave cylinder piston. 2/ The clutch disc could be in backwards too! Either way, you will need to pull the tranny! Sorry! Frankster016
