Started about 2 weeks ago. Grinding, binding, metal clocking noise from trans tunnel. When i put the car in gear and release clutch it sounds like something is binding up and i get a loud metallic click from under the shift area. Dont really hear it other than that. Tranny was rebuilt 3 yrs ago by me. Also a new clutch a few years ago.
So i hope it is something simple. Some initial guesses would be possible clutch cable on its way out. It creaks when it gets worked. Maybe u-joints are bad? Driveshaft hitting exhaust? I havent had a chance to get underneath it and look just yet but i am expecting the worst and might have to pull the trans next weekend.
Yeah true. They typically dont last as long as the clutch these days. I just hope i dont have to crack open the trans for a bearing or something
I just looked underneath and nothing sticks out and looks pretty clean aside from a small oil leak from the valve cover. It really only makes the noise when i initially engage the clutch putting a load on it. Other than that i dont hear it. Although, i am sure that wont be true for long.
Looks like i am pulling the trans this weekend. I hope it makes it to saturday.
