throw out bearing is bad. pull trans and replace. you can spray bearing with wd 40 and noise will stop for a few minutes. it may have caused dammage to the pressure plate. replace all three.

Why Mazda b3000 clutch fail?

It is pretty hard to answer such a question without any more info. How many miles, driving conditions, fluids changed regularly. Often times clutches fail for a multitude of reasons but most often it is from driver abuse. By this I mean proper care for the clutch and trans. If it happened all of a sudden and you take care of it regularly, I would say that something inside the clutch pack went bad. Could be the throw out bearing but likely the springs that are on the inside of the clutch pack that keep the drivshaft from spinning in neutral are weakend or broken. However, my initial guess would be a throw out bearing but like i said it difficult to diagnose w/o more info. hope this helps

Why does the engine rev up when you push in the clutch on a 1998 Mazda pickup b-3000?

I have this same problem with my B3000. The only results I have found is that the IAC (idle air control) sensor needs to be changed. Also, you could try cleaning the throtle body plate and sensor. This could be causing your truck to not realease the throtle body when engaging clutch.
