Hi
Wisely speaking you could go for a lower milage OR lower price.....
This deal doesn't look very comforting to me..
But as I have not seen the car ...you could be the best judge..

Transmission makeses a whirring noise when in neutral and the clutch out, dissappers as soon it is in gear


id bet the throwout bearing is going bad (or gone) some of these are greaseable/oil depends on mfg 151 km on the clock tells me that too (if its original) , if it bucks and chatters esp. while starting up in reverse direction that's sure sign its gone !!

replace the clutch/bearing and slave cylinder (if equipped) when you repair this ( it will save you in the long run)

I found a 2000 jetta with 90k original miles with a transmission problem the person said his mechanic put the scanner in and it said incorrect gear ratio he is selling it for $1900 would it be worth the...


Incorrect Gear Ratio, means the transmission is slipping, the clutches are worn out, in other words, you will need to rebuild the transmission which may cost anywhere from $1000-1800. The Kelly Blue Book is about $2800 in Fair Condition, I would pass on purchasing this vehicle unless the person is willing to fix the problem with the transmission and offer you a Warranty for the repair.

How long do clutches last on 323is's? I just


Hi
It can last the lifetime of the vehicle, depends on driving style of the driver. A new clutch can be destroyed within 5 Km. If a hydraulic clutch still takes low it's a good sign on the condition of clutch, if hydraulic system is in good working condition. The above applies to most clutches.
