My 99 C2 with 70,000 miles has a very ugly sound coming from the transmission area, when the car idles you can hear noises like loose bolts on a can, as soon as I depress the clutch noise stops, if I let the clutch out it starts again. The sound is on and off and only at idle.

Anyone with a similar sound.

I have the original clutch on the car

Could be a few things but likely a broken spring or 2 on the flywheel. Only opening it up will tell.

I guess that as I go and check, I should replace the clutch as well.

Cosmos: You and me both. That "bucket of bolts" is the usual trademark sound of the failed intermediate shaft or other catastrophic failures. I hate to even read that description because your heart goes out to the person who's asking what that sound means.....it usually means $$$$$$ and heartache.

Caesar....because it's not constant, it sounds more like the clutch....sorry to see this happen, but if it is the clutch, it's a whole lot better than the other scenarios.

I know, I hope is not the engine, , I think is really something to do with the clutch, the minute I step on the clutch it goes away, anyways when I get bacjk frm Indianapolis Monday I am going to visit The collection and see how much and what the problem really is.

I hope is the clutch or flywheel
