Clicking noise.... what is it??

While doing the prep work for my Herculiner project, we removed the cover plates for the shifters and used some Simple Green to clean off the 1/8" of dirt and grime caked to everything underneath the covers. Now that we've reassembled everything, there is a clicking noise (that seems to come from there) that wasn't there before. When I drove it the other day, it seemed that the clicking would start when I would first start going and increase with the rpm's. Then, when I come to a stop, as soon as I push the clutch in, the clicking stops. What could this be? What else should I do to maybe shed a little more light on it?

Well, I'd assume you probably got some simple green or water in your tranny or something. That was what you were spraying, right?

Yep. If this Is the case, is this gonna cause problems? If so, how do I take care of it?

Thanks in advance...

"Is this gonna cause problems?"

Well, water and trannies does not mix!!![img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] So think about that.[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] My suggestion would be to drain the fluid ASAP and refill it. Then go from there. I don't know enough about trannys to know what the water could of done, so maybe someone else can enlighten you on that. Hope I helped some?

Re: Clicking noise.... what is it??

Manual transmissions are pretty resilient to water, unless you've got an 8th ocean in there. I would drain the transmission and refill with clean oil. You'll be able to tell if there was a significant amount of water if the oil looks milky. I don't think you've done any damage, but definately change the oil. If the problem persists, you may have driven some dirt into the input shaft bearing.
