Rattle noise in the engine bay started occurring, when I pushed in the clutch, the noise went away and eventually I couldn't accelerate anymore after driving with a rattle noise for about 3 months. The car will go in gear but won't move. Rattle noise got louder after that happened.
My clutch went out with no warning and it's quite expensive to fix. It's been a great car and I'm hoping this clutch will last a long time because it's not something i want to be fixing repeatedly.
The car will not go into gear and clutch has pressure but grinds when tried to be put into gear
