In addition, the clutch pedal has begun to squeak horribly when it's pressed. Is the clutch going bad? I have 94k miles & it's never been replaced or even looked at by a shop. On the other hand, the car still seems to stay in gear & shift w/out any trouble."
The noise you hear is probably the T/O brng. Clutches normally don't make a noise ... they just start slipping until it goes away & the car can no longer move forward. Whether or not your car stays in gear is strictly a transmission function & nothing to do w/the clutch. Shifting can be either a clutch or a transmission problem (bad synchros). Plan on replacing the pressure plate, clutch disc & T/O brng.
