I've been havin this nasty squeeking noise lately and I've come to the conclusion it's the throw out bearing going to hell on me. I figured I'd save up for gear, new clutch, and tlok while I was going to have the tranny all torn apart. Last night I drove the car and it was fine. Got up for class today and it started up really rough and just handled like ****. It was a little better after class but now it's grinding when it's in 4th gear, there's a whining noise when I put the accelerator down more than normal, and it sounds like something is dragging when I coast with the windows down. Anybody have any ideas what the whining or dragging noises could be? The whining is coming from the engine compartment and the dragging noise (almost a metal on metal sound) is coming from the back end of the car.
