Could possibly be a bad water pump. Get it checked by a mechanic.

Check water pump first. if that's is not problem it sounds like your timing belt is worn and stretched and needs a new one.

You have 91 pathfinder 4wd 5 sp it has a bad rattling noise in 1 2 3 5 gear 4 gear is totally quiet only when clutch is disengaged sounds like trowout bearing?

That sounds like a pocket bearing in the transmission. In every other gear power flow runs through the countershaft so the input and output shafts run separately at separate speeds the bearing between them is called the pocket bearing. Only in 4th gear are they locked together and run as one shaft. The repair for this would be a transmission rebuild.
