Judy Corey (Los Angeles, California) - Toyota
Judy’s van makes a noise, kind of a loud whirring followed by a crash. It only happens when she steps on the clutch from a stop. Every time she’s taken it to a mechanic the noise has mysteriously gone away, but she did get the clutch replaced. Ray thinks the noise is coming from the transmission--there’s a bad bearing, and stepping on the clutch puts enough heavy load on the transmission to make the noise. Judy should wait until the noise gets more constant so mechanic can find it.
