Re: what is a throw out bearing

If you have a manual transmission vehicle.... the throw out is the bearing that is part of the clutch assembly.

Correct me if I am wrong, and I might be, it is between the clutch plate and the transmission itself.

So either you didn't put one in last clutch change or someone has been riding with their foot on the clutch pedal

Re: what is a throw out bearing

If this is the thread you are refering to, it is not the throw out bearing. It is, as LTL stated, a broken or bent shifting fork. O.K., there are more things that could've happened. The shifter linkage could've come loose. Or the reverse shifter lever could've gotten jammed up in the reverse fork rod arm.

Re: what is a throw out bearing

I agree with Nedro. There are two modes of throw out bearing that come to mind. The first is that the bearing is noisy, this is the cheap one, do not drive the car until the bearing is changed and life is good. The second the bearing locks or seizes and usually burns of a clutch plate on the way out, replace the whole clutch including bearing (always replace the bearing when changing a clutch) Of course the bearing could also self destruct but I have not heard of this happening.

shady tree mechanics said that to much sitting at the light with your foot on the clutch can mess up the bearing...

alright. you're probably correct. its in reverse but its in a neutral setting on the stick, you can move it left and right as if it was in neutral.
