    the throw out bearing does not touch when clutch is released so it will not make noise at this time

Recently developed a whinning when I first start to move


Where is the whining noise actually coming from .. engine/gearbox or elsewhere?
A whining/screeching noise could be a drive belt .. such as the belt that drives the alternator.

On a manual car it could be the clutch bearing making the noise until it warms up. Does the clutch make a noise when you depress the pedal? That's the thrust bearing .. the bearing that operates the clutch.

I don't think you have too much to worry about. If you had engine trouble there would be knocks, rumbles and strange noises at all speeds.

A whining noise is usually associated with something spinning/turning .. such as a pulley/idler on a drive belt or a bearing alternator.

Put your mind at rest - get a mobile mechanic's opinion.

When I depress my clutch the gears will not engage


If a hydraulic clutch, the fluid is low or has leaked, leading to air getting in the system. Thus the clutch will not disengage and let go of the gearbox.

If a cable clutch the cable has broken or gone right out of adjustment.

Also check the clutch pedal return spring, as these do break due to wear on the attachment hooks.

I have what I believe is the neutral switch on the clutch pedal, b ut it has a harness with 8 terminal in it. Is this the switch? If so , how do I bypass it.


Cars with manual transmissions don't normally have a neutral safety switch. Some do have a clutch pedal switch requiring that the clutch be fully depressed before car will crank over. You could use tape to depress it to see if it is just out of adjustment. I don't know why it would have 8 leads without a wiring diagram.

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.

2006 Mitz. Lancer whining noise from clutch/trans. area.


Hi! Most likely you have a worn throw-out bearing which applies pressure on the clutch plate to engage and disengage the transmission. If that is the case, the tranny would have to be removed to replace it along with a new clutch assembly! Good luck!

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

Shifter works when car is off, start car and then shifter won't go in gear. if i start vehicle in first with clutch pedal to floor, car starts going forward. mazda miata mx-5 just put new slave cylinder in...


The one item I would suspect is the through-out-bearing not completely disengaging the pressure plate from the fly wheel. If the vehicle is in neutral and you slowly depress the clutch and release it do hear a singing or whining sound? Since you cannot adjust the clutch any more the through-out-bearing is the component which moves the pressure plate from the fly wheel to stop the power from the engine to the transmission. It is difficult to shift when the engine is on because the fly wheel is still engaged and powering your transmission.

MAZDA MX5 CLUTCH PROBLEM


you have to bleed the clutch cause it should be an hydraulic one... if you still have a lot of free play after that it means the clutch is worn too much....
