    Sound like your clutch is not disengaging completely. I would also check your driveline for worn U-joints and differential for excessive backlash.

    Like Johnny Mopar said it's probably not disengaging fully So double check your clutch master http://partimages.genpt.com/largeimages/907076.jpg and your clutch slave cylinder http://partimages.genpt.com/largeimages/907079.jpg and the book time to replace the clutch hydraulic assembly is 2 hours
