  1. Father is having trouble finding information on the location. Car died on me this morning. Help, anyone?
  2. Update: Problem has worsened. Coming up to stops with the clutch in, I hear that loud metallic grinding noise, almost like gears grinding. Sometimes it goes away on it's own after a few seconds, other times I let off the clutch in neutral and it stops. Dad is going to take a look at it and said we might as well replace the clutch and the throwout bearing. Gotta love putting more money into a car than what you initially spent on it.
  3. I'm sorry, I'm having trouble finding the instructions. Can you link me?
  4. Thanks for the reply. I'll look into the instructions for bleeding the clutch. The mileage is about 151k and my gut tells me the clutch has never been replaced. Ran pretty good today; still making that sound, though. I've heard that it's hard to say how long a throwout bearing will last, so I intend to get it fixed asap.
  5. I've had to do a lot of work to my 1998 Pathfinder since I got it about two years ago-- lots of replacements. Also, bear with me because I don't know much about the mechanics of my car, The distributor and fuel injector was just replaced a month ago, but it wasn't quite running the same. It feels like there's slightly less power than before. It's been making a weird sort of metallic growling sound when I'm in neutral. This happens if I'm just sitting and idling, or if I throw it into neutral as I'm coming to a stop. The sound will go away when I push the clutch in, or sometimes fade on it's own. However, I took a trip at highway speeds on Saturday and it was about 250 miles. When I went out on Sunday, I filled up and noticed that it was making that loud metallic growl while I was in first gear with the clutch in. This is the only time I've ever heard it make the noise while I was in gear. Engine also revs itself a few times on cold starts. My father initially thought it was the throwout bearing but I'm not entirely sure now, since the sound usually goes away when the clutch goes in.
