Question

Visitor, 1.8L 4 Cylinder, San Antonio, TX, January 17, 2011, 14:15

I have 2003 Kia Spectra 5 speed w/11kK miles. I am getting a high pitched whine that becomes noticeable at around 35mph and get louder as speed increases. I can push in the clutch at highway speeds and the whine goes away.

    Sounds like a worn out throwout bearing. The transmission will have to come out.
