Car makes a rattling noise like a wate rpump going bad when I slow down. But when I come to a stop and dinengage the clutch, the noise stops.

The heater bypass valve is located BEFORE the thermostat, so if your heater gets hot, your thermostat could be stuck closed. If there's any suspicion that the car is too hot, always change the thermostat (since it's a hassle to take it out, you might as well change it), and also check to see if you have enough antifreeze. The 4 banger Integra motor always runs hot, the temp gauge showing the needle almost half way. This is normal. Your noise sounds like the clutch needs adjustment, or changing. Another check you could do is test the fan relay (at the radiator). If it's faulty, that would explain why your car runs hotter than usual. #24 and #25 in the diagram.

automatics do not have a clutch that you can use in a manual transmission car. pull the tranny drain plug and look for metal bits on the magnet in the plug. If so it will be input shaft bearing that has failed. To fix that the tranny will have to come out and be repaired.

Metal on metal noise


most likely the throw out bearing is at fault. when you push the clutch a spinning bearing pushes the clutch plate away from the flywheel disengaging trans so you can switch gears. the transmission has to come away from the engine to fix it.

You are in trouble, expect a visit from the police soon. Actually the thing is over 20 years old and you need to do the clutch, replace all the parts and resurface the flywheel. Every part on the car will fail with age and use, most likely someone did this 10 years ago or so and now it is due again. As you can most likely buy a late 90s Explorer for the same amount you are about to spend on a clutch, you may want to just upgrade vehicles a decade, however a late 90s one will be ready for a clutch itself so try and find one which has already had that done.

Sounds like it may be the throw out bearing, as it is what all of the pressure rides on. To replace it, you will need to remove the transmision. Take a good look to see if there is a a place to look inside, you may be able to see the problem.

1994 Integra RS front end noise?

Without hearing noises first hand it is very hard to diagnose.

Things to check from the description you gave:

- Heatshields/Exhaust
- Thow-out bearings will make noise depending on the clutch pedal being engaged/disengaged. The noise will come and go as you move the pedal in or release it.

I would rule out the CV joints if the noise happens while moving straight. CV joints will click while turning when they go bad.
