Default Clanking noise and hard to shift, any answers?

I have a 04 SRT-4 basically stock, I have a question about a clanking noise coming from my clutch/transmission area while in idle and difficulty getting it into any gear. Also when I do drive at any speed in any gear I hear a banging noise like metal on metal, I have stopped driving it completly. I just replaced my clutch with a centerforce dual friction clutch, also changed the master cylinder, the clutch slave and release bearing. I tryed adjusting the clutch but that did not help, does anyone know how to fix this or what parts I need? Please help, Thank you.

Thank you for responding. I just made 50,000 miles, and did not replace the clutch fork. I have been reading tons of posts and just bought a factory clutch fork, a boomba pivot ball and a brute force release bearing. I think I got what I need, did I miss any other crucial parts?

sounds like you have everything. the fork is what wears the most and makes it hard to shift.most high performance clutches well make that clanking noise at idle

So after replacing the parts I bought, will the clanking noise still be there in the after market clutch or should it be back to normal?

I got a hold of one of our forum members out here in Hawaii, he has three srt4 and is going to take out my clutch and tranny. I am going to put a modified clutch fork from wikyd-performance and a boomba pivot ball. Does anyone know of any other parts that normally wear out that I should replace while the tranny is dropped? Tranaxle seals, input shaft bearing?

Either from our site or you can pm me directly for the fork. I was texted about you needing one earlier.

Hey Wonderer876, Thank you for sending that fork out so quick, it came in the mail just as we were dropping the tranny. It works great, perfect fit.

Not to hijack a thread, but ty for posting this similar questions, so it is normal for it to make a slight clacking noise when you release the clutch at idle? Running act six puck.

Yes a chattering noise is fairly common if your release bearing clips are broken, mine were. Not only that but when my clutch was changed by AMCO they did not refill my transmission fluid. Me and some of our forum members dropped my tranny, changed the release bearing, clutch fork and pivot ball, also most importantly filled tranny fluid. After that work my car, shifting is like new with no unusual sounds.

With mostly any aftermarket clutch you will get clutch chatter and it is 100% normal with no problems or anything broken. If the stock clutch is chattering then you most likely have a problem.
