Before I start, I don't know where to post this, so, Mods, please move this to the appropriate section.

Alright, so, when I'm driving down the road, I'll sometimes hear this noise come from either the middle, or back of the car, and it sounds like crickets are chirping. That's the best way I can describe it.

I'm just wanting to know if I should be concerned. I know, sounds weird, but, I came from Hondas, so, don't expect too much yet lol.

Speedo cable. Does the speedo gauge twitch? Very easy one handed way to check. Reach under car and remove cable from transmission. Its threaded onto passenger side of tranny. Disconnect and drive. Listen for noise.

I cant tell that anything changes when it happens. It's only when I'm normally driving. It stops when I push either clutch or brakes. My Speedo doesnt twitch though.

I experienced the same noise coming from my NA before i replaced the speedo cable. Im pretty sure if your rpms are jumping around and not staying steady thats a good indicator. Its also fairly simple to switch out.

So the the MPH don't jump around if the speedo cable is bad its the rpm? Shouldn't it be called the rpm cable? Just saying.

^ He does make a point haha.

I'll look into though. I stopped last night at home and sat there for a minute to see if anything would bounce, and my RPM's did.

Thank you guys!

Grease the little connection point between the clutch slave and the fork on the side of the trans. Black moly works well.

^I'll try that. If it doesn't work, oh well. It's not a problem. As long as my speedo still shows how fast I'm going, I'm fine. I never really use my tach anyway.
