2006 Lexus IS 250 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 47500 miles
Just bought the car and have driven 2 days and 150miles and have noticed that a mild clinking, grinding sound from the clutch I would assume, and when I step on the clutch pedal, the sound is gone. Hvae also noticed when taking off, and taking off slow (like when you know a light about to change so you are slightly letting up on pedal and stepping on gas, but not enough to really move) I hear a 'gurgling' sound. Almost like water running thru something. The car goes into gear easy, it is a rough ride in general and very jerking shifts, which normally I can shift fine. I got 102k+ miles out the original clutch on my toyota and coulda got more if I kept it. Any help, not sure if I should keep this car, I can still bail out of purchase if I want.
