    k i was out driving tonight, banged through the first 3 gears from a dig a couple times, and i started to notice a whining sound coming from my tranny. its pretty loud through the first couple gears then it seems to go away quite a bit in the last 2 gears. its louder on decel than acceleration. and also theres been no change in driveability or the overall feeling of the shifter or clutch pedal.

    anyone have any ideas?? my thinking at the moment is that the throwout bearing went on me. which i find kinda weird because i put in the king cobra clutch kit within the last year and a new throwout bearing was installed at that time.

    you can test the throwout bearing theory by turning your car on and leaving it in neutral, then see if there is that noise from the trans,
    then depress the clutch pedal (shifter still in neutral) and see if the noise goes away, this is what a mechanic told me, my car does it, but it
    also has the noisy TKO

    If you break a throw out bearing YOU WILL KNOW. It is a loud screaching noise when you press the clutch pedal. Happened to me. Throw out bearing and the clutch went at the same time.
