You will either have to replace the pedal an box or get it welded behind the pedal, which works out cheaper an is also stronger

Sounds like the clutch is adjusted so it touches a little... not good.

The sound could also be from a burned out Throw-out Bearing. From the CarTalk web site:

The second most common type of clutch failure is when the throw-out bearing (also called the release bearing) fails. That\'s the bearing that pushes the clutch plates apart when you push in the clutch pedal to change gears."

It makes a roaring sound when you push in the clutch pedal. Silent otherwise. Its a pain to replace, as you have to get the engine and transmission separated. Sometimes you have to pull the engine, sometimes the transmission, sometimes both!

That is why that work on the master cylinder and slave cylinder are so critical, and why proper adjustment is vital.

They will probably charge a lot, but its a lot of work. If they pull the engine or transmission, may as well get a new clutch and certainly a pilot bearing, too.

Then again, you may be lucky and its just a clearance adjustment in the clutch slave cylinder.

Put a cluth in a 1991 toyota mr2 turbo 2.0 and its still grinding when I shift gears.. what can I do to solvve my problem

have you replaced your fly wheel and release bearing when you changed your clutch disc?

if yes, then replace your transmission fluid.
also, if you know hot to adjust your clutch release, adjust it. adjust it in a way that you need to draw back your clutch pedal a little higher for the clutch to complete engage.

here are some ways to adjust your clutch.

1. for clutch using clutch cable. open your hood, locate for the transmision, and there you can see a cable that connects the transmision and the clutch pedal. loosen in up a little.
2. for hydrovac clutch with self correcting features. just pull your clutch pedal away from the floor for a few seconds and its done.
3. for hyrovac without self correction. manually adjust the push rod (metal rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master)

How do i know my clutch is gone out

You can do a third gear test.. Try and start it in third and ease out on the clutch. If the car stalls your clutch is ok. if it slips most of the way, you know its not in good shape.

Other signs of a shot clutch is while its in gear you can floor it and the rpms will shoot up and the mph will not rise as fast, this is the clutch slipping on your flywheel.

Clutch pedal sticks to the floor; the brake reservoir was low

I believe your pressure plate is broken and at a minimum will have to be replaced along with the clutch disk.
