Grinding noise in my transmission 2000 toyota Echo

I have a grinding noise in my transmission when I am driving and it is getting louder every day. When I engage my clutch or put it in neutral while driving then the noise stops. When I let off the clutch or put it back in gear then the grinding type noise starts again. What could be causing the problem and what would happen if I just leave it alone?

Sounds like a bad throw out bearing you have to take the tranny out to replace it.

Here is what is going on. When you push in the clutch pedal you remove the connection between the engine and the transmission. At this time all the parts in the transmission stop rotating.Since the only parts in the transmission that can rotate without moving the car are the input parts we can safely assume that the noise can only be from there.This can be a transmission input bearing. Worn Synchro mechanism (allows the transmission to shift without grinding the gears)Low fluid in the tranny. Or a bad clutch component. Top off or change the fluid. If it still makes the noise you need to take it to a tranny shop.

SOURCE: 2000 Toyota Clutch replacement

Whenever you have additional floor mats in the vehicle, the clutch pedal does not go to the floor. This, in turn, prevents the clutch release mechanism from releasing the clutch disc fully from the flywheel. This causes premature clutch disc wear. I would agree that you need a clutch replacement.
The replacement is pretty straight forward, as long as your guy has the ability to support & hold the engine assembly while the transmission is removed.
No big mysteries on the clutch replacement.

First thing to do is check the fluid level if that ok you may want to think about having the transmission filter and fluid changed, there are other possibilities but check these first

Yes, your clutch might be worn and/or out of adjustment or the trans is worn. Your clutch may be fine also. Toyota's have a problem with there shifter bushings and seats. They brake and crack also causing shifting problems. And some times only one gear depending on the condition.If yours is broken,crack or damaged, you can find the parts from Toyota and there a whole lot cheaper than a clutch. Also I recommend adjusting the clutch if possible. Not all are adjustable. Check your clutch fluid.

pop off the cap on your clutch reservoir, if it's empty fill it up, leave the cap off, and then pump the clutch 20 times to try to get air out, that should work.

2000 Toyota echo . automatic . my car kicks when I drive from 0- 10 it gives a small kick when changes gears. Then once more from 10-20 mph . can this mean my transmission is going out?


Your car is 14 years old, and should have had the transmission fluid changed several times by now. When was the last time the fluid was changed and the filter replaced?

Toyota Echo manuel transmission noisy


Check if:-
- It is squealing or squeaking noise, the thrust bearing is at fault and need to be replaced.
- The noise varies when accelerating or decelerating, check the engine mounts and muffler Re torque all the suspension nuts and bolts. Also have a look in the engine bay area for any loose component.
- Noise is heard in any particular gear, then the transmission may require major repair.
- Check the transmission oil level.

I have a 2003 toyota echo and its making a loud grinding sound. It gets louder as i speed up, and only stops when the car stops. I was told it was the transmission and that it needed some type of fluid....


you sure it's not the brakes? Also sounds like it could be the axle assembly. If it "is" the transmission I don't know of any magic solution only the mechanic could put in. I've used Lucas Transmission Fix before if they aren't too bad and it can work (at least long enough to sell it or even better trade it in). You just put it in where you put your transmission fluid. It's pretty thick so make sure your fluid input is easy to get to or get a funnel with a very long tube on it. If you haven't changed our brakes for a while take one of your front wheels off (try to see if it's louder on one side) and see if the brake pads are down to bare metal. Also look around for other reasons while you have your wheel off. Good luck.
If this helps you resolve your problem, please
consider giving me a good rating and a quick
thanks or good job.It will help me as well.
Thank you.

Sounds like there may be a problem with the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly easy to replace only takes about 30-45 min and about $55-125 in parts. Jack both front whels up and with it in drive turn wheels back and forth and listen to each side. I am pretty sure it is the left side but check both.
