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
*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
