Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack each corner of truck in air and grab top and bottom of tire and see how much it moves. If it moves anymore than a little you have a bad wheel bearing.

Clutch noise


Bearing noises in a clutch system are easily distinguished by running a few simple tests. Start the engine and leave the transmission in neutral. If a transmission makes noise when it is in neutral it is often a worn input shaft bearing. Now depress the pedal until the clutch just engages. This is the point where the release bearing is just contacting the pressure plate fingers. If you begin to hear a squealing sound this is likely a worn release bearing. If a whirling noise is present when the clutch pedal is fully depressed it is probably the pilot bearing.

Metal on metal noise


hi,

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.

My 2004 audi s4 makes gronchy noise when i put it in to 2nd gear when cold whats causing it?


If I've understood your problem correctly.....when changing from 1st gear into second the box is giving a metal on metal crunching sound?
  • This would be the syncromesh ring which is not equalizing the speed correctly.
  • The problem usually happens when there is wear on the same part.
  • Check to make sure that the correct transmission fluid has been used in the box.
  • To alleviate the problem and delay the time when it will require attention, use the double de- clutch method of changing gears, especially when the transmission is cold.
  • The double de-clutch is carried out in the following way.
  1. When in gear and changing from 1st gear to 2nd, change into neutral and release the clutch and then depress again before selecting 2nd gear....It is not required to rev the engine in the neutral position when changing up....
  2. When changing down rev the engine when the shift lever is in neutral for each change.
You'll soon get the hang of it and stop the crunching sound, protecting the box at the same time....

Clutch pedal, starter, ignition... where is the safety relay for the clutch pedal depression to allow start? 1994 Jeep YJ 4.0 this has happened twice


If you find the switch, you can temporarily jump across it, 'till you get a new one. When you go to buy it you are looking for a clutch switch.
Neutral switches are found on automatic trans vehicles. If you jump it out, be VERY careful to make sure you start in neutral with the clutch depressed as without the switch, it will start in any gear even with the clutch engaged.

Ford Focus 2005 LX TDI 1.8 Estate - gratting/knocking/clunking noise from clutch (?) when accelerating, when engaging clutch at standstill, gonna take a look tomorrow - any ideas what to look for?


Most clutch problems are related to disengagement meaning when you have the pedal depressed. That typical noise is then made by the throwout bearing.
I'm not sure you have identified the source yet since accelerating doesn't have much to do with a clutch that is engaged. A worn clutch reveals itself by slipping; the motor runs faster than it should for the speed of the car and no longer synchronized with with the acceleration.
