Default Throwout bearing noise?!?!

Almost a month ago, my car started making a chirping (sounds like a slipping belt) noise that goes away when I press the clutch pedal. The noise is always there when the clutch is not pressed but when I put presure on the pedal it goes away. Question is, how long can it last before it something major breaks? Should I look at it immediately or can I wait a little more before I get someplace to get it looked at? I ask because this is my only car and I need it for transportation. Thanks for any help... oh, by the way it's a 99 gt 5 speed.

LOL Mine has been doing it for about three months. Eventually the majority of the squeeking will go away. I think its more less the pressure plate than the throwout bearing because a throwout bearing sounds like you are dragging a chain behind you as you relaese the clutch on a take off.

your correct.. its the throw out bearing and it will befine for a while. how many miles are on the car and has the clutch been changed yet? The reason i ask is because if and when you change it yo might want to change the clutch and check the pilot bearing while you are there. So you dont have to drop the trans again. But other than that you should be ok for a while but I wouldnt forget about it...

It was a totally different sound for my TOB. I have the whistle and I took it to ford and they said it was the pressure plate getting worn. When my TOB was going out it sounded like I was dragging a chain. Thats the only way I know how to describe it.

thats when the TOB is really shot. The sqeal/whistel is just lack of lubrication on the bearing. either way if will be fine for a while.

Right after I got my 99 it started sqeaking too. At first the noise would go away after the car warmed up and then it did it even more after a couple months. I took it in to Ford and they told me a pulley was bad. I don't know if that has anything to do with your problem but it's an idea.

That's DEFINITELY a TOB

........and you don't need to worry too much about anything breaking.

Replacing other parts like the clutch or pilot bearing is a good plan while you're in there.
