Can of worms.

I recently did a pretty hefty job myself replacing my clutch kit. Got me driving again so that made me happy. But. Now if my rpms are up and i push in the clutch to try to put the car in first it grinds.i wait a couple seconds then am able to get into first. It seems like my clutch isn't initiating correctly. Then shortly after the car warms up, when I accelerate (in gear while moving) It sound like an RC car. Just whining so loud it's painful to hear. Also after long periods of driving my clutch gets touchy. I have to shift while the pedal is almost to the floor. Any ideas or a point in the right direction? I also have my dsc and brake light stuck on. Going to clean my sensors and hope that fixes it. Someone help though! Much appreciated.

May seem like a dumb question, but you did replace the throwout bearing as well right?

Are the alignment sleeves lined up on the flywheel? First time I did the clutch it wasn't and that was the issue.
I didn't realize the flywheel went on only a certain way and bolted the smaller hole against a sleeve making it stick out and uneven, with symptoms like you describe.

Yes but I only had one alignment pin. Which seemed odd to me. I used to work on 350z's and they always had 3 or 4. So I'll check it out.
