Ok so here is my issue, when in neutral or in gear (all gears) I can hear a grinding noise from around the middle of the vehicle. If I press the peddle in, the noise goes away. It shifts perfectly fine otherwise and drives great. I did some research and I came to the consensus that my Throwout Bearing needs to be replaced. If this is a correct assumption I guess that I should replace my clutch as well. If I buy a clutch kit and get a mechanic to install it how much would that cost? (labor alone, not parts)

Either way I definitely am going to get it checked this week but I just want some opinions on this so I am the most prepared I can be.

Well I guess the problem may be much worse than what I had feared. It sounds more and more like my problem is the input shaft, which would mean I have to get the transmission taken apart and possibly rebuilt / replaced. Sigh.
