This is my first time posting to this site, I am just getting into repairing my own vehicle after a few terrible experiences with mechanics, body shops etc etc
and I apologize in advance because I am not sure how everything works on this site just yet in regards to sharing videos or pictures
I have a 2005 GT with a manual transmission and as of late it has begun to make this awful rattling noise! its hard to describe... maybe imagine sticking a fork in a tin can
and then start scraping the sides and shaking the can with the fork still inside
*I wish I knew how to post a video right about now *
So this noise has its own personality and will;
1.Only happen on a cold start
2.Change pitch depending on whether or not the clutch is depressed
3.Get louder the higher I raise the RPM
4.Immediately stop when I am coasting in neutral.
5.Usually die out around 10 minutes after driving
6. enjoy long walks on the beach
7. Come from the front end only
Seriously this is driving me crazy I have already attempted too secure the heat shield with no luck and have been told that a component on my clutch is getting loose!?
