So I went to my mechanic for a check up and he seems to think it is the throw out bearing, both his lifts were blocked so we couldn't get it in the air but he said it doesn't sound consistent enough to be a LTFW. I'm going to post a link to the video here and maybe someone can tell by that and hopefully the video link works.


Also one last new symptom is it does it when in neutral and clutch isn't pressed down but if you accelerate lightly to 1k rpm it stops as well and anything higher then 1k rmp you can't hear it which makes me think LTFW. I believe it has a uuc LTFW which I thought were know for not being too loud but I could see enough to be definitive that it is uuc LTFW.
