I was driving around doing some errands today and I got into a parking lot where I was first gear and noticed my tranny was making a rattling noise, similar to shuffling change on a metal table. And when I shift to 2nd I get little bit of the sound still but if I downshift from 3rd its gone. I do know I have a small transmission leak. Idk if its just dry and needs more fluid or if I'm about to lose first gear.

I'm no master mechanic, but does it do it when the clutch is engaged? I'm thinking throw out bearing for some reason
I agree with you. Until last night I wasn't noticing any difference between clutch in and out. But now when I have the clutch out but the trans out of gear I get a padding sound, so Im thinking clutch/throw out bearing also, because it goes away when I press the clutch in

Now I've come to should I replace everything? Cause the sounds gotten worse, but the clutch doesnt seem to slip at all. With my old 96 v6 mustang when the TOB went bad it made a squealing noise, am I looking at replacing just the TOB or more?

its kinda like your hitting your hand on a cardboard box, or a paddle hitting a pillow.
