What is most likely the situation? Now makes a grinding noise when the clutch is released.
I have a 1994 Dodge Stealth manual transmission, it had started to sound like a freight train when accelerating and before I took it in, I heard a clunking sound in the engine. I slowed down and the car stalled and wouldn't start up again for awhile. I eventually got it going again in 2nd gear and moved it just enough to get it off the road. It made a clunking noise like something was moving around in the engine even when rolling it in neutral. Now if I start it (have to jump start it because battery died) I hear a grinding noise when I start to release the clutch, my shifter starts to shake just a bit too.
