like sometimes i can hear something clack when i press in the clutch... or when im in 5th gear and just let go of the gas and i start decelerating then it will start clacking like the clutch is clacking or something in the tranny. so i wanted to know if it was the throwout bearing? and how do i know when to change the throwout bearing?

car has 45K miles.

I have something kinda like that, but I suspect it to be my driveshaft having a bit of play. Your TOB going out will sound like a cat being raped by squirrels.

i forget what it is called ...maybe input shaft? My 04 was making the same noise and eventually my tranny starting getting noisy in all gears. Check your tranny fluid to make sure to be safe.

Ossy,

To check the fluid in your tranny, you should have a fill hole with a plug. Remove the plug, stick your finger in and down into the tranny, and if you feel fluid, you're good, but if you don't, grab some and use that hole to fill it. The fluid should be about 1/2" below the plug hole.

3650s take 3.2 quarts of tranny fluid, for future reference.
