ok so im about 75% sure this is a clutch/Flywheel issue.
I just bought this 2001 GT, 47.6k miles and I havn't and dont plan on beating it or driving it hard. The shift lever/Knob gets hot after driving it for alittle and it's not from my hand. i went up a hill stop and go and i heard chattering and vibration underthe shifter then it stopped. Now i hear a funny noise that almost sounds like a belt squeek. Wheen i pop the hood it sounds like it's coming from behind the block in the bellhousing. So anyone have an idea? I think it just needs a clutch but i would like some incite if possible.

na i would've mentioned that. i can pop a new clutch in in about an hr. im just curious if this is common or if this sounds like the clutch or what. It doesn't make much sense to me. Thanks for input though

That's not the clutch making the squeaking sound, its either the throwout bearing or the pilot bearing. The vibration could be the clutch or a flywheel problem. If you swap the clutch, make sure you change both the bearings as well, and at the least resurface the flywheel, its also a perfect time to go to a lightweight flywheel, which I highly recommend, often overlooked, but its a great mod. You can try to readjust the clutch cable, there should be about a 1/4" gap between the throwout bearing and the pressure plate.
