If it doesn't make any noise with the clutch pedal out and only makes noise when the clutch pedal is depressed then it's your throwout bearing and/or pilot bearing.

more than likely it is the pilot bearing because the throwout bearing tends to make more noise when the clutch is out than in. but if you are removing the trans you should replace the slave cylinder which has the throwout bearing on it anyway

no...the input shaft and flywheel are spinning at the same speed when the clutch is out meaning that the pilot bearing is stopped...its either the throwout bearing or your an internal trans problem

well depending on what kind of maintenance you and the other owner have done, but with 75689897654 miles on it it may be internal

eh...well i change it right after i go wheeling too. but think of it this way, i spend $20 extra dollars every 3rd oil change, or 4-6 months for 5 qts of trans fluid and it takes me 15-20 mins to change trans and tcase fluid. its a little extra insurance...

im very **** about fluid changes. i change power steering, brake, axles and coolant once a year, fuel filter every 10k, trans/tcase every 9k and oil every 3k

You know, if you need to spend some cash, I'll PM you my address. Lol...just kidding, it's your truck, you can wear out the drain plug threads if you want. I wish everyone else cared that much.

when you are going to college, doing an internship and making barely any money working along side a tech that has less certs than you and hes making $35 an hour...you do everything you can to make sure nothing breaks...also with 186k on it i keep up on fluids and maintenance, as did the 80 year old previous owner...this truck has never went more than 3200 miles on an oil change...never more than 2800 before i owned it
