How about helping yourself and taking a peek under the car? Could be a million things causing that sound.

its my clutch, i drove it around a little and it only makes the sound when im engaging the clutch. Once its get going it goes away untill i stop and try moving again, it shift good while moving but if i try to get it going from a stop it makes the noise. When im engaging the clutch it starts to cry but if i push the clutch back in it goes away. I dont want to drop 1700 for a new clutch and instalation right now so im going just baby it untill next year.

We don't have physical access to your car so it is hard diagnose. It could simply be the throwout bearing, clutch, or both. Both are rather spendy because they require dis-assembly of the drivetrain just to get to it. Anyways you need to get under your car and take some quality pics in order for us to help. I do suggest bringing it to a knowledgeable mechanic/dealer and have them diagnose it anyways though to know for sure. They can also quote the work that needs to be done at the same time.

I also second that, going by your first post Headstart. I had to jump a curb once and the wheel started squealing when its cold out on my car. Simply a damaged wheel bearing... Which only costs about $25-30 in parts but is a ***** to install.

You can't really see it. You test the wheel bearing by jacking the tire off the ground and jerking on it. If it has lots of play it need to be replaced. Other than that we just want pics from under the car just to see if anything important got hit. Take lots of pics of the bottom of the engine and transmission.

Please update your profile so we know what car you have. Again I suggest paying the $20-50 to have someone else diagnose it. If it is doing that something is obviously wrong with the car. Anyone know if a clutch can be bumped out of alignment and if it could be a factor?

Another blind guess would be a broken axle or two... If the clutch was slipping you would somewhat be able to feel it in the pedal because when you lift your foot off the gas you would feel it grab again. If it isn't the clutch then it is the center differential being worked to death. In that case GET IT FIXED or it becomes more and more expensive from there.

If it's the clutch i will just wait till next year and put a 6 puck in, i dont think the axles are broken, the noise is only coming from one spot and it dont happen all the time but happen too much not to notice, and it only happens while im engaging the clutch. i will take it to the dealer tomorrow and see what they say...and when the clutch seem like it was slipping i was using cruise control but i can just be stressing from the problem. Thanks for all the advice i will post picks and result from dealer
