Clutch hum
Alright I've searched and searched about this topic and still nothing helpful. Today I commuted 20-25 mins highway to my doctors. Pullin away from a red light, the car sounded like a diesel an had a weird hum to it. I had this same issue before we replaced the clutch and now under 5k miles put on the clutch it's Doug the noise again. Does anyone have an idea what this could be? I don't want it to be a clutch issue but it sounds like that's what it is. I don't dont how a new clutch can have a diesel him coming from it already

Do you know what the problem was exactly before you got the clutch done?

Loud squeal when clutch disengaged. It was TOB. But I don't understand why it would do it again. It's almost Brand new still... I dont know

And by disengaged I mean pedal pushed to floor. The TOB was replaced right and so was the clutch disk and pilot bearings. The sound only happens in first gear too, or at least the only gear I can noticeably hear it

Oh, OK that makes more sense.

In that case, it could be the flywheel chattering. Is it a lightweight flywheel?
