My 2002 Ford Escape with manual transmission has started making a “chirping” noise at idle that at first I thought might be an exhaust leak, but all I have to do is just gently take up the slack in the clutch pedal and it stops. I don’t have to press the pedal all the way, literally just taking up that little bit of slack at the top end of its travel will do it.
Here’s a video demonstrating it – might need to wear headphones to get the full effect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=025f1Sw6q2A
I’ve read multiple suggestions from the throwout bearing to normal gear noise in an older transmission. Any ideas?
