You need to replce the cluch and preasure plate. the clutch is gone, its hard to shift because there is nothing left to pushout on the plate and the squeeling is from the same problem, the clutch works like brakes, when the pads are gone and you step on brake you get asqeeling sound from it being metal to metal the same thing is happening with your clutch

Clutch pedal goes to th floor and won't spring back. High-pitched noise. I am not able to shift gears. 2007 Mercury Milan-Standard-6cyl.

My 1997 F 150 standard trans goes out of 2 wheel drive into 4 wheel high (according to dash lights) on its own. The transfer shifter is still in 2 wheel drive position. The steering is very tight when like this (more like 4 low). Prior to the "auto 4 wheel engage" episodes there is s bit of a whirring noise but the first time it happened it was more like serious "gear grinding" noise. Can't seem to find anyone that has a clue. Both solenoids were changed, fluid drained and refilled. NOw what?


The problem is most likely electical. Unplug the solenoids and drive to see if its ok now. If it still does it then you have a tranfer case issue.\015\012\015\012Has anyone checked for codes. You will need a good scanner to do this. Not ... Ford F-150

My brand new 2009 Highlander has this high pitch whining noise right from the start. It happens when decelerating, like if you go on a little hilly road, once you get to the peak and then just let gas pedal go so the car just glides down the hill, you will hear this high pitched noise, very high, like airplane landing, but not very loud. What's going on? Took to a dealer, they said it's "normal" operating noise. ????

This couldbe one of a hundred problems the guy at Tuffy's really screwed it up.
