NOISY TRUCK! help me!

Alright, Well my trucks been makin a strange noise lately. At first i thought it was a wheel bearing but then I noticed it when it was idling because of the high idle when its cold out. Its a weird noise like not a grinding but a shaking or like hum if you hold a "v" it kind of sounds ilke that. I was thinking maybe something in the clutch. My clutch is on its way out i know that it slips with the chip cranked up. But If anyone elses truck makes this noise tell me Im pretty concerned

I've heard a lot of PSD's with manual trannies make the sound I think you are referring to. My dad had a 1987 F-250 with the 6.9L with a manual tranny and it made a noise like that. I believe it was the release forks vibrating in the through out bearing. Does it make this noise when you depress the clutch pedal?

It will tell you if it's in the rotating assembly of the clutch, if it makes the noise running free but not when the clutch is depressed. If it's the throwout bearing, I've had them make nois for a long time before doing anything about it.

I would check with the vendors, tell them what you have and what you do with it, and any plans you have for the truck. They will recomend the best course of action. I personaly would go with a good after market clutch that will give you long life and good dependability, I'm not a big fan of factory anything, they build things to keep the bottom line down, not really for what might be best for the truck. Just my opinion though. Good luck with it.---Gord.
