2001 Mazda Miata 4 cyl Manual 72000 miles
I recently got my clutch changed after which I heard noises in the car. My mechanic said nothing's wrong, Some transmission fluid spilled when he was chnging the clutch and it is transmission noise, but there is nothing wrong with transmission.
But I am left unsatisfied by his explanation as the noise is becoming unbearable.
1. The noise remains for all speeds. Infact at higher speeds, it seems I am in an airplane instead of a car.
2. The noise completely disappears when I press the clutch.
3. When the car is at halt, the rpm still shows 1000, and there are two sounds I can hear. It seems the engine is resting and starting again after every 5-6 seconds.
4. While driving, whenever the rpm goes below 2000, the noise changes itself to a grinding sound. It seems like something (bearing or something) is loose out there.
Do I need to go to a specialist? Or can the same mechanic do something about it?
Appreciate your help.
have the same problem?
