I HAVE AN ISSUE WITH MY 04 SRT4... WHEN THE CLUTCH IS ENGAGED I HEAR A RATTLING NOISE, BUT WHEN I PRESS ON THE CLUTCH THE RATTLING NOISE GOES AWAY WHEN ITS IN NEUTRAL. IT ALSO TAPS WHEN I GAS IT AND IT GOES BETWEEN 3 AND 35 RPM. I THOUGHT IT WAS THE THROW OUTBEARING BUT I REPLACED THAT AND ITS STILL DOING IT. IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING THE SAME ISSUES IM HAVING? PLEASE LET ME KNOW

If you have an aftermarket clutch it would most likely just be the clutch free spinning a factory clutch has a spring to hold it still aftermarket ones that are stronger don't. And what do you mean by taps?

Sounds like the springs on the clutch disc may be making contact with the flywheel. I've seen it before, typically it requires a complete replacement.
