Clutch noise

It's time to change the clutch with entire kit. Release bearing, pilot bearing, clutch plate, pressure plate and get flywheel turned. If that bearing flies apart inside your transmission it will leave you stranded and your release fork will be destroyed possibly causing more damage to the transmission housing. It is hydraulic and if the master cylinder is working properly you're not likely to notice any play in the pedal due to release bearing.

20004 Saturn i am having shifting problems will not go into gear smoothly,if at all . 5th gear in nearly impossible to find with out grinding . Is it the shifter ,clutch or clutch pedal not engaging?

Possible causes are: The clutch is going out, the hydraulic clutch system is low on fluid, or the transmission input shaft is binding on the pilot bearing. 1. Is the pedal firm and does it feel like it used to? (low fluid). 2. Once in gear and moving push on clutch and notice when the transmission disengages. If it does not disengage until the pedal is almost at the top then the clutch is getting thin and will need replacing. 3. With vehicle on a smooth flat surface, depress clutch and try to shift into any and all gears. Notice if vehicle tries to lurch forward as shifter goes into gear. This may be a subtle lurch but should be noticeable. This checks for a binding pilot bushing. Let me know what you find. Thanks and please rate.

I replace the transmission fluid in my 96 b2300 5 spd a couple months ago. We had our first ice storm last week and I noticed a sort of whine coming from the transmission. Not typical transmission whine...

this sounds like you have a deffective clucth release bearing. in order to change it, the transmission will have to be remove. this may have been the result of moisture in the bearing cause by the snow. to avoid such situation again it is advisable that you park your vehicle in a covered and enclosed garage

Have a 2004 jeep wrangler x with a manual transmission and when it is in nutral and the clutch out it rattles. Is this normal? i still have the factory warranty and went to a chrysler dealer and they tried...

A rattling noise from the transmission is never a normal condition no matter what anyone says, and the first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level, but it sounds to me like the throw-out/release bearing is riding the clutch pressure plate, and when the clutch pedal is in the up position the throw-out/release bearing and the clutch pressure plate should not be touching each other, and the only time that they should make contact is to release the clutch disk in order to shift the transmission into gear. There should be about 1 to 2 inches of free play in the clutch pedal, and the clutch should start to grab within 1 to 2 inches of letting the clutch pedal up off of the floor, and if this is not the case you might need to have the clutch properly adjusted especially if the clutch does not start to grab until the clutch pedal is half way up from the floor. Also, the main bearing in the transmission could be going out due to low fluid, or a damaged pilot bearing that is allowing the transmission input shaft to wobble just enough to cause a rattle from the main bearing or even a vibration in the transmission.

97 jeep wrangler sport, mechanic changes clutch

If the pilot bearing was the problem it would make noise with the clutch pushed and go away when you let it out. Have you checked the fluid level in the transmission?

I am havin problem with my clutch... i have to push the clutch pedal almost to the floor, before changing the gear. the master cylinder is full of fluid. could the problem come from the pilot bearing in...

Pilot bearing is in the end of the crankshaft. (keeps the trans input shaft from whiping) You are likely referring to the throwout bearing. If you have one that is integral with the slave cylinder, then it needs to be removed by taking the transmission out. You don't need to remove the clutch. If the slave is on the bellhousing, then you don't need to take the trans out, just replace the slave. From what you said, I'd also check that the master is not internally bypassing partially. Often they don't leak right away when that happens except for a small amount of seepage where the rod from the pedal goes through the firewall.

Clutch Whine on Toyota 4WD Pickup

Bad bearings. Perhaps a throw out bearing. The pressure on it varies depending on whether your pushing on the pedal or not, and how much. If the noise occured only when the truck is moving, then I would say it is the input bearing. Changed alot of those years ago.

The squeaking would have either been caused by the clutch release bearing or the pilot bearing in the crankshaft if it has one (pilot bearing). It doesn't really matter as the transmission has to come of to repair either of these. It is hard to tell what you were describing, but whatever you do, don't spray any more WD 40 at anything! It will ruin your clutch and clutch fluid if it comes in contact with either. If the clutch fluid reservoir gets low, only use new brake fluid to top it up.

Rear diff fluid is a milky color and it whines while driving

Sounds like there is water getting into the diff. Most of the time it is from the vent on the top. That will cause damage to the bearings and make noise.

When I engage the clutch, sometimes it makes a whining sound.

If it is a throw-out bearing it will only make noise when pressure is applied to clutch pedal, there is also a pilot bearing that will squeel with clutch in if bad. when doing a clutch replacement all these parts should be replaced.
