SOURCE: 2001 suzuki swift - thermostat replace?

Suzuki thermostats, more often than not, tend to fail OPEN when they have been overheated - which is a good thing! If they failed shut, you would really cook the motor. Change the thermostat. Also, find the cause of the initial lack of coolant.

Metal grinding noise from gearbox

Pull the gear box drain plug and check for heavy metal stuck to the magnet. I suspect that the clutch in-put shaft bearing has failed. If so you will have to have the gear box rebuilt as the metal will have affected the other bearings

I suspect that there is a failed bearing on the output shaft or on the cluster shaft. This comes from the burnt oil condition which happens when a bearing is over heating due to failure and the gears not aligned when trying to change gears.

Howling noise from 2006 ford escape when driving

That's a bad wheel bearing. If when driving and you swerve side to side and its loud one way and not the other or not as bad the other then its a wheel bearing. As for the metal shavings on the plug don't worry about it unless there are chunks of metal then you should have the rear end inspected.

How can i tell that my gearbox is on the way out?

You do not state if you have an automatic or manual. Manual Noise can be a bit of an indicator. if you hear a uniform swish swish noise this can indicate a bearing beginning to go. Vibration, if you can detect vibration (it might only be very slight) and that this vibration is present whether or not the clutch is engaged can indicate bearing wear. If certain gears are increasingly difficult to engage this can indicate that shaft misalignment due to worn bearings. If you remove the gearbox oil it should be fairly clear. THe drain plug usually has a magnetic pin on the back of it to collect worn ferrous particles. If it is identifiably gritty this could indicate worn fragments from case hardened gear teeth or bearings. If the oil is very cloudy this can indicate severe wear due to gears or shafts actually beginning to rub on the alloy casing. Putting your finger inside the oil drain hole you should not be able to feel any residue on the inside casing. If however the finger is covered in a film of 'metal mud' this indicates that the 'box' is in a bad way. Automatic Slipping in gear can be due to worn clutch bands. A transmission that seems OK on the move but judders violently when slowing down may indicates a worn selector shaft. A transmission that snatches through gears (clonks from neutral into first) when accelerating is most likely due to low fluid. Draining the fluid - should be pink and clear. If brown and smells 'burnt' this is is due to slipping gear clutches getting hot and cooked. If cloudy this indicates loss of metal due to excessive wear. The autobox filter should be opened after replacement for examination. If it contains metal filings then the transmission is in a bad way.

The clutch in my 1983 Chevy truck rattles when I push it in

the thrust (release) bearing is worn, not a big deal in itself as it will last a long time like this, but if the noise annoys you the bearing is very cheap, though to change it means removing or pulling back the gearbox so if the clutch is not new you could replace the whole lot as easily while in there

How to change a clutch kit

it will be the thrust bearing, its a ring bearing that allows the clutch fork to press on the pressure cover without rubbing the fork away.

Easy to change, and if the clutch itself is ok, you can just pull the thrust bearing off and slide a new one on. Usually you only have to separate the gearbox enough to get at the bearing, not taking it right off, though you may have to pull the gearbox right off to get it off the end of he shaft depending on the shape of the bellhousing.

Have you checked the wheel bearings for play or roughness? If they're OK i'd suggest gearbox differential bearings. If they're that bad you'll find metal filings or swarf in the gearbox oil. Most *** cars have a magnetic oil drain plug.
