    A bird trapped in my engine bay

    Is what my car sounds like when its on and idling. If I step on the clutch pedle then it goes away, so that makes me think its my though out bearing or something. I popped the hood an listen around the engin and it sounds like its coming from under my valve covers. Any ideas??

    If it goes away with pressing the clutch pedal then its going to be the throw out bearing. The only thing under your valve covers are well cams and valves and wont be affected by pressing the clutch pedal.

    Thank you Stealthee. Would it become a cause of catastrophic failure down the line? And why would it be making the noies. I just installed it when I did the clutch. Was I suppose to lubricate it or something?

    Yes you were. You were supposed to lubricate the inside of the TOB and the shaft it rides on.

    Your trans is going to have to come back out. If its already noisy then the TOB is going to seize making it impossible to shift.

    Thanks again Stealthee. The tranny going to be replaced any seeing how its cracked and leaking. So Should I replace the TOB or just grease it?
