If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Hide yo stash!


See if the knock is coming from the engine instead of the trans
Measure crankshaft end play (checking for thrust bearing wear)

Re: bad knocking sound when clutch pedal in

Ive looked at the rear end of the engine and felt for any looseness or anything obvious but everything seems tight.... lack of a dial indicator leaves me without exact measurements..... it only happens when the clutch has pressure on it.... never when driving,or in neutral or anytime the clutch is engaged... only once the pressure plate has pressure applied to it

Re: bad knocking sound when clutch pedal in

Do you have to push the clutch pedal all the way to the floor to make the noise, or will it make noise if you just rest your foot on the pedal without pushing it down enough to disengage the clutch?

Even just resting my foot on the pedal gives a light knock.... the more pressure i apply the louder it gets...

Re: bad knocking sound when clutch pedal in

That should rule out a pilot bearing noise then.

Seems like you're probably down to something in the throwout mechanism, pressure plate/fingers, or crank thrust. Or something else oddball that wouldn't be typical.

Stethoscope it, figure out if noise comes from trans area or engine area?

I sure wouldn't expect it, but right now nothing has been measured and ruled out.
