Default really squeaky clutch engagement

I recently got a Competition stage 2 clutch/flywheel combo with my rebuilt engine, granted I am still breaking in everything but like everytime I put the car into gear, the clutch makes this horrible squeak.

IF I shift badly into first its really squeaky, if I shift ok its less squeaky and if I use the clutch a lot when I take off it doesnt squeak.

If I am traveling at low RPM in second gear and hit the throttle it squeaks, it also squeaks not as bad upon shifting up.

IF I stall out the car, good god it squeaks so loud.

I have a pretty fair amount of confidence in the people who did this job for me, I have read that some people really like the comp stage 2 and some really don't. I can't say I'm a fan so far, but I can live with it unless its gonna squeak all the time, do stage 2 clutches just squeak or is there something that could wrong? Its not the pedal that squeaks, its when I physically put it into gear after letting off the clutch.

It also squeaks when I go over bumps.


Any help would be great. Thank you

What you are decribing doesn't sound clutch related to me, especially if related to going over bumps or when the car stalls. Maybe I don't understand your description but it seems like something such as the exhaust wasn't installed quite right and is now interfering. Also look for loose motor mount or transmission mount bolts, etc.

It only squeaks when engaging into gear or if I'm accelerating particularly hard and a bumpy patch comes up

Ok, so if it is while the clutch is engaging, then it may be clutch related. Not sure how the road surface would contribute...

I dunno, its weird, it squeaks over bumps, its squeaks when I engage the clutch or change gears, it squeaks like while I have my foot on the throttle cruising, it doesnt squeak if i roll the car in neutral though, only if the throttle is going, its particularly bad when i shift into gear though.

Does it squeek when the clutch is in (engaged) or out (dissengaged)..

Sounds like a bad throw out bearing..

it squeaks when I let off the clutch to put it into first/change gears, very loudly when putting it into first and then if I cruise at any RPM and have my foot on the throttle constantly, I hear a squeaking from under the car. It also squeaks if I have my foot on the throttle if I go over a bump.

I just had my engine rebuilt and this new clutch and flywheel put in, they changed all my fluids for everything.

I have a fair amount of confidence in the place that did the job, my suspension is ultimately brand new too, I have coil overs, end links, sway bars so I know its none of them squeaking. They wouldnt hjave reason to anyway if its only squeaking when I'm changing gears/holding on the throttle. IF I let off the throttle the squeaking goes away or if I roll the car in nuetral theres no squeaking.

Does your squeek sound like this.. ?? This is my throw out bearing making noise, new clutch 1-1500mi on it...



The other bearing of interest here would be the pilot bearing in the flywheel..
