Use caution unless you positive your timing belt is in tip top shape. Interference engine. Valve damage will occur if belt jumps time or breaks. That being said. Where does it sound like the noise is coming from? Around the wheels, between trans and engine, engine itself or trans itself? How does the clutch feel?
