Tranny noise in neutral???

I have an 04, put 6000 miles on it I noticed a few times that the car wanted to jump forward when in neutral after i started it. Also very rough taking off sometimes unless you revd it up some and tried to slip it out but it always grab quick. Act 6 puck clutch in it. After racing a mustang I had a hard time getting it back into 3rd or 4th. It did after a few tries. Then I get home, let the clutch out in neutral and holy growl sound coming from somewhere. Push in clutch, goes away, let it back out starts growling like a bearing. Drove it down my driveway and back and now it's in neutral but stalls as if it's in gear and want to lunge forward. No one seems to be sure of what it is? Tranny? Input shaft bearing?
Pilot bearing? I think the input shaft bearing and it's allowing for the shaft play and that why it's not coming out of gear completely??? Would like to hear what everyone thinks. I'm in Vermont if someone knows someone....thanks

So I just bought my uncles 05 SRT4. Before he passed away he told me he was having some sounds similar to yours. Then the synchros went out in 1 and 2 and he couldn’t down shit. Now that his wife sold it to me 1 and 2 are completely out. So it’s jsut been sitting since I bought it. Everything I’ve gathered it says shift fork, synchros, and maybe clutch release fork. I don’t know if any of this will help you out but I’ve also heard there’s some YouTube videos on how to change these parts as well.

Two other old-timers have already commented. The noise is the throw-out bearing (TOB). The TOB is notoriously noisy on these cars. I bought mine new, and it made noise even then.

The throw-out fork and pivot ball tend to wear and cause the clutch to not fully disengage when you press the pedal. Now if it wants to jump forward when actually in neutral, as you say, and not just with the pedal pushed in, it's possible you have a bigger problem. But it's one that can't really be diagnosed without opening it up.

How are the shifter bushings, both at the shifter and on top of the tranny? Those are another thing that deteriorate over time. I've had my SRT for almost 16 years, and I've gone through a couple of sets. I have Booger bushings in there now.

Have you ever adjusted the shift cables? Apparently they get pretty sloppy every 30k miles also. And another thing the shift fork and gear selector are known to bend or break under hard shifts pretty commonly. Just from what I’ve read and talked to some people about

If it was the tob wouldn't the bearing be working when clutch is pushed in? No body thinks input shafts bearing? Cause that spins when the clutch is out in neutral and that's when I hear the grinding growl. I can't get it to let me upload a video of it. It had new clutch and tob 20,000 miles ago. It's a 6puck act. Gears never grinded, poped out or anything. No problems until 3 and 4th and 5th to 150mph then the problem. Guess Ill have to have it towed somewhere and diagnosed. Hate not knowing before hand. I could drive it but don't want to break something else. Tranny fluid was clean BTW

Don’t judge me cause I’m new to this car but I watched a YouTube video of pulling the trans, and the gear assembly and it looked really simple. You’ll save about $500-$600 in labor by just pulling the trans or gear assembly yourself shouldn’t take more than a few hours depending on the condition of everything. I have a few possibilities of what’s wrong with mine and if those don’t work I’m pulling it all myself and taking it somewhere

That's the only way to learn if you want to learn, so no one on here will bash you for that. It's pretty straight forward but it is a PITA the first time.
