Re: HELP! Engine screech at 5K rpm
OK, googled it and found this on the whatcar owner review page:
"When the car was five months old, it had to have a new clutch as the clutch screeched every time I changed down through the gears. I think this was a problem for Alfa and they took several months to find a suitable part to remedy the fault. It's been fine since the new clutch was fitted but it wasn't what I expected after spending £14,000"
This is similar to what I am experiencing in 2nd and 3rd on a down or upshift when the clutch is depressed, happends intermittently.
What I dont understand is how the clutch could be making a constant screeching noise only above 5000rpm when it is not even engaged. Exuse my tech knowledge, but I assumed the clutch was sitting there doing nothing if not pressed/depressed, or can someone tell me otherwise? Or can anyone ive any other suggestions as to what the problem could be?
Hoygaard, Dave C our expertise would be very much appreciated.
