hey i didn't mean to cause any harm, i've had this problem for a while and the squeaking is just getting louder and it feels like my car is losing performance from it, if that is even possible. it seems sort of sluggish. here are all the specs for my problem.... i have 42000 miles on my car, stock clutch, i have a firewall adjuster, new clutch cable, and quadrant. *when i first installed the clutch stuff (cable, quadrant, adjuster) i had it tightened up pretty good. the clutch would engage like two inches from the pedal being completely out. i then realized, after a couple weeks, maybe 3, that it was way too tight and loosened it. the pedal would sort of vibrate a little bit when loosened (screwing IN the adjuster) and it didn't catch well. during all of this, the clutch pedal would feel like there is stretching or it scraping something, and it would feel horrible. recently, the clutch pedal movement has become smooth again, but the throwout bearing, or some bearing is squeeking and making noise when i'm driving. when i push the clutch pedal in a little bit, the noise goes completely away. like if i'm in 3rd gear at like 30 mph in a tunnel, i can hear a loud squeal along with exhaust noise (my exhaust is kind of loud) so if i can hear it over or with my exhaust, it has to be sort of loud. anyway, the car now feels slightly sluggish, but it might be my imagination. last night i loosened the cable a couple clicks (screwing IN the adjuster), and the car almost feels slightly quicker, but there is still the noise.
hopefully that is some good info. someone on another thread said to look for some grease inside the dust cover somewhere, should i try that? this might sound incredibly stupid and forgive me, but a tad bit of wd-40 on the bearing? forgive me... but i just had to ask
should i screw in the adjuster all the way and see if the tob has the right gap? **when i look into the dust cover and see everything spinning, the tob is spinning also, at idle. at idle i can hear the squeaking noise also.
this is really scaring me now that i saw it could damage the tranny. it's been squeeking since may. please help...
