It would sound like the throw out bearing is bad.. That is usually replaced with the clutch and pressure plate. The throw out bearing applies pressure to the pressure plate and releases the clutch disc. When not applied, the bearing spins freely, and a noise would indicate a dry bearing.

Where is the grease jerk for the throw out bearing on a 91 s 10 2 point 5 you have to slightly put your foot on the clutch to get it to stop squeaking?

Throwout bearings are permanently lubricated and as such do not have a grease fitting. If the bearing grinds when you press the clutch your throwout bearing is trashed. Since it only makes noise when your clutch is rattling around, it's just an annoyance. If it gets to the point where it makes noise when you press the clutch you need a clutch job.

What if your 91 firebird formula 5.0 has a clunking noise as the car speed goes below 30MPH If you press in the clutch before it drops below 30MPH the clunking noise does not happen?

If there is a clunking noise on a 1991 Firebird Formula 5.0 when going below 30 mph, and the clunking noise does not happen when the clutch is depressed, it is probably a problem with the flywheel. The flywheel moves freely when the clutch is depressed. When the clutch is not depressed, it could be that something is rubbing on the flywheel, like the clutch plate.

You have a manual 95 Mitsubishi eclipse when you press tha clutch you can here a click that wasent there before what is it?

anytime you press in the clutch on any car and you hear a noise its likely to be the throw out bearing. on a mechanical clutch there are alot of cables and pivots that can make noise as well. on a hydraulic clutch its really just fluid and a few moving parts (inerts of the master cylinder and slave cylinder) the rest are really in the clutch housing itself. it could also be something as simple as a loose bolt from somewhere or as bad as a loose flywheel. either way clutch systems in general are pretty simple and it can only be a few things. best bet is check the throw out bearing.

How do you see that the clutch assemble is damaged?

New clutch has been installed still have noise at idle it sounds like throw-out bearing what else could it be?

The throw out bearing will only make noise when you press the clutch pedal. If the clutch is new, the throw out bearing is a required replacement in a clutch job. Sounds like a bad pilot bearing. Not enough info in the question. I had the same problm and it was input shaft bering, AND the counter shaft bering. Replace them and sloved the problm.

Why Does your 1993 Plymouth Laser Shift Hard Into Gear?

Because there are so many parts to actually diagnose this will be a good place for you to start to troubleshoot what is wrong. The information below was taken directly from this site and it should help you to pin point where your trouble is: Clutch Diagnostic TestIf you find that your clutch has failed, here is an at-home diagnostic test that anyone can perform: # Start your car, set the parking break, and put the car in neutral. # With your car idling, listen for a growling noise without pushing the clutch in. If you hear something, it's most likely a problem with the transmission. If you don't hear a noise, proceed to step three. # With the car still in neutral, begin to push the clutch and listen for noise. If you hear a chirping noise as you press, it's most likely the clutch release, or throw-out bearing. If you don't hear a noise, proceed to step four. # Push the clutch all the way to the floor. If you hear a squealing noise, it's probably the pilot bearing or bushing. If you don't hear any noise during these four steps, then your problem is probably not the clutch. If you hear the noise at idle and it goes away when the clutch is pressed, it may be an issue in the contact point between the fork and pivot ball.

How do you add clutch cylinder fluid to 1998 Ford mustang GT 4.6 liter v-8?

The clutch is a cable based. There is no fluid and there is no clutch cylinder. To adjust the clutch cable slip your foot under the clutch pedal and lift up. If you hear it click it adjusted itself. If not then it did not need to be adjusted or the clutch is worn out and there is no adjustment left. ========================================================== Just adding to the answer : Without the engine running put the transmission in 1st gear After lifting up on the clutch pedal press the pedal DOWN , SLOWLY Then if you hear a click noise the clutch has adjusted itself

It might have a problem with the neutral safety switch, (it's what is switched on when you press the clutch) The switch is behind clutch pedal. It looks a lot like a brakelight switch. If it's bad, the part is about 40 or 50 dollars. Good Luck!!!
