1999 mustang gt someone is selling, but it has problems

This guy has a 1999 mustang GT with 115,000 miles on it. It looks really good but when the clutch is fully disengaged it makes a noise, doesnt matter if it is in or out of gear. If you rest your foot on the clutch the sound goes away. It shifts fine and goes in and out of every gear without any extra effort or grinding. I've never owned a mustang before or any american car for that matter. The guy says it just needs a new clutch. Should this be something i should really worry about or should i just tell him to fix it? If it is just a clutch thats not that big of a deal, but i just dont wanna have to put a transmission it in.

Welcome to AFM, Sounds to me like a clutch and a through out bearing. Both are basic repairs, you might want to tell him you will take it if he fixes these issues first. Good luck.

Life is not just a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW.... WHAT A RIDE!!!

Send a message via MSN to 00StangGuy
tell him to get the clutch inspected through the inspection window on the left side of the transmission, as far as the noise is concerned probably the through out bearing.

Or if he wants to sell it "as is" then find out how much a shop would charge and subtract that from the "Blue book" value and offer him lower than that and don't go over that price, go down the street and find a different Stang if he won't negotiate!!!!!!

Depends on the price. Its not a major or expensive fix so if the price is good, go for it, just assume you will need to replace the clutch, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and replace or resurface the flywheel.
