transmission making noise.

When im driving the car, something makes a rattle noise. It sounds like the heat shield for the cat is rattling. but when I press the clutch in, it goes away.

it happens when im slowing down or downshifting. decel

problem 2

when im idling, the tranny makes a squeak noise. when i press the clutch in, the noise goes away.

im getting a new clutch tomorrow and it comes with the release bearing(throw out bearing)

for another $150, my mechanic will change the input shaft bearing aswell.

I just want to know if its the input shaft bearing. How can i check the input shaft bearing? wiggle the shaft, and if its wiggly, its bad?

Note. It makes the rattle noise too when the clutch is engaged.

I think it's the input shaft bearing that's worn. It initially makes the noise when the clutch is out, and I'm accelerating. But when I press the clutch in, it goes away. But also I've just noticed on my way to work, it rattles when the clutch is engaged.

So I think that the input shaft bearing is worn, and it spins when it isn't supposed to, and rattles because its metal.

Re: transmission making noise.

Sounds like you're on the right track. Those would be my first guess, since I'm having the 'squeaking-while-the-clutch-is-out' problem at the moment, too.

I might second guess the input shaft bearing being a culprit, but if you're gonna have the transmission out, might as well check all that you can.
