    Check transaxle lube first! Any noise sitting still with engine running and working the clutch? You stated whith clutch depressed nolse goes away, is that correct?

    There is no noise at all when the car is sitting still working the clutch its only when the car is moving the noice starts but when I put my foot on the clutch the noise goes away.
