,Ok First of all im gonna say..... I love my 1988 Pathfinder. I told my friends id choose this over a brand new lincoln....i find myself rubbing the dash calling her my phat girl!  Ive been working on her so much and always new parts. So i have issues beyond meassure.

 

Ill just start with the major one.

 

So theres a scrapping noise coming from under the car.... I thought it was my clutch release barring so WSL sold me one seperately. Of course 3 cross members i took off the gear slid transmission  back. Popped in the barring.  The noise was still there. So then i ordered the whole clutch kit which comes with the releade barring and the special tool to put it in.... MY GOD LOTS OF WORK!    Finally i got it in.....nothing changed. Of course i drained fluid and refilled before and after.... I dont know what to do next?

 

Details on the engine running:

*sound is during idleing

* 1st gear 

*2nd gear

*3rd gear

*not in 4th (so im constantly trying to drive in 4th at 60km to save the embaressing looks)

*5th even louder grinding

 

When my clutch is down to switch no sound. But neutral idling its grinding

 

Please help

Sounds like it got GL5 fluid in the trans at some point and all the bushings are disintegrated.  Metallics or chunks when the oil was dropped last?
rebuild or replace is a for sure

Sounds like input shaft bearing is worn, possibly due to underfilling, there is a TSB on the early manual trans, stating they need to overfilled.
