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.

throw out 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.

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.

How do you see that the clutch assemble is damaged?

Some symptoms of a faulty clutch: - when you depress the clutch and press the gas (when changing gears) an used clutch will "slip" (maybe even make noise) and the car will accelerate slower than normal - when the gearbox is in neutral, some vibrations could be felt or some abnormal sounds could be heard
