Horrible clutch grinding noise and jerky petal.

I searched my heart out, but only found a little info possibly pointing away from throwout bearing and to the springs in the clutch breaking.

truck is a '00 f250 with a 6 speed... 152,xxx miles. I have owned it for the last around 6,000 miles. Truck has had a VERY nice shifting and super smooth ridding the clutch backing up etc... In the last 100 miles the truck suddenly developed a realy nasty noise when I push the clutch in like a metalic grinding noise spinning with RPM, and when slowly letting it out it is REALLY jerkey and nasty.

The noise goes away totally when you let off the petal, and starts as soon as you push the petal in JUST a hair, then it starts in, and gets worse the farther down you press the petal. It still shifts fine, I just dont wanna destroy my tanny figuring it out. And dont really just wanna pull it apart before I have some idea of what I need to get for it. althought it has to come out either way.

My two thoughts were bad throwout bearing... or the springs on the clutch disk coming apart. I am jus confused as it seems a little sudden for a throwout bearing.. It went from genlte squeking to a LOUD grinding in the cab within 100 miles. Any thoughts would be great.

I say it's the throw out bearing. I put a new one in my truck twice this year. Do it quick because the wear on the input shaft happens real quick. I went ahead and had my tranny rebuilt. The input shft was really worn on the end. I paid $1575 for the rebuild with a new input shaft. My tranny was also the 6-speed.

alright.. I will start to pull it apart tommorow evening after classes. I hope its only a throw out as that is a LOT cheaper then a clutch.. and I cannot afford a new tranny with being in college and all.

Just curious if your symtoms were kinda the same when the bearing went out'/?

my guess would be the throw out bearing

glad to see another 6 speed out there!

if you replace the clutch, ive heard that suncoast was a very good replacement, if you have heard or come across another good one let me know
