2007 Citroen Xsara Picasso (petrol). Weird chirping/warbling sound from disengaged clutch.


indicates that the clutch throw out bearing is failing
it is just touching the pressure plate fingers and that is allowing it to spin haphazardly creating the sounds.
by applying slight pressure the bearing is made to run under load and so the noise stops
when driving in gear it is the same as idling where you hear the noise
the short fix is , transmission out and a new bearing fitted
the long fix is to replace the clutch plate and pressure plate as well as that saves the labour of having to do the job again in the future
use only accredited clutch professional shops with experience on your make of car

Driving a good distance car makes a whamming sound the more Itry to accelerate the speed decreases whinning louder only stops whinning when I pull over to let the car cool down


Have your wheel bearings checked, when a wheel bearing is going bad it hums louder as you accelerate, when you stop or slow down the sound stops. A bad bearing does that, it over heats due to it not having enough grease on the bearing and will hum as you drive and get louder as you accelerate.

Car surging at idle, and making humming noise.


I can relate my experience with a similar noise on my 1994 car with Traction control. A electric valve in the air intake made a "Hum" or "Buzzing" noise when malfunctioning. For my car, the valve was suppose to reduce engine RPM so the wheel spin was stopped by choking off the air to the engine.
So the electric valve on your engine may be getting a bad signal from the Traction control system especially since you are not applying power. Or simply the electric contacts in the part you mention are worn out and "buzzing" because the contact points are burned out and can not connect.

I have a 1994 Nissan pickup. v6 manual trans. I get a loud hum as I drive. But when I press the clutch in, the hum stops. release clutch and hum starts. Could this be the Clutch fan?


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

I drive a manual transmission 2000 Outback. I was stopped on a steep hill, and when I started trying to go, my RPMs went up to 5000 and I couldn't go anywhere, so I stopped trying and saw some light grey...


From your description, it does sound like the clutch has again failed.
You can still safely drive the car, provided you avoid heavy acceleration and don't negotiate steep inclines.
However, the clutch slip will only get worse, so get it fixed ASAP.
If the new clutch has failed after only 12 months service, perhaps your clutch pressure plate should also be replaced.
Note that operator poor clutch technique (excessive slippage during starts) will also cause early clutch failure.
