Alright, I have seen MANY MANY threads related to the throwout bearing making the whirring sound in the cold. Mine has done this since day one, however this is much different.
This noise only happens for the first few shifts and is not the whirring sound most people are experiencing with pushing in the clutch (throw out bearing). I am at 2-3k rpm WHILE DRIVING and push in the clutch and get a whinding down whistle/horn noise, like the supercharger noise whinding down, but it only does it for 2 seconds and changes pitch as the motor comes back down to idle. It will do this a few times and then be done once the motor is completely warmed up.
On my way home I waited for the car to COMPLETELY warm up (10 mins) and sure enough accelerate lightly in first gear, hit the clutch in at 2.7k and hear the winding down noise, but this time it only did it twice. Never heard it again on the way home. This isn't a suddle whistle, it is well described as moderate in terms of quiet to loud.
Boost is fine. Car pulls fine. No idle issues. The sound is actually very similar to the boost leak issue most people have with the IC hose while under acceleration, but this is not in acceleration it is when pushing in the clutch at like 10% throttle ONLY WHEN IT IS COLD COLD.
Obviously, there isn't any extreme issue right now, but this is a new noise that has happened twice now and is very noticible. Perhaps a more experienced member has some insight to this before I take it to the dealership (I want to identify the problem first if possible). Not a fan of taking my car to the dealership based on previous experience.
THose who don't like to read....
*Only makes the noise for a few seconds like a whinding down (changes pitch and all) noise when it is Cold.
*Only does it a couple of times - maybe a dozen depending on how much the car is warmed up and then will not happen again.
*Not under any heavy boost, push the clutch in while moving at low speeds and low rpm
Thanks for your input!
