clutch shudder or junk trans?..
So i feel i am experiencing clutch shudder with a side effect of a junk tranny. the issue: i have clutch shudder the car shakes really really,,, really bad and on top of that gears were whining and grinding like crazy. now they both seem pretty obvious but the grinding and whinning from the gears dont really fall under "clutch shudder/chatter" do they?.. anyones thoughts?

Have you drained any fluid to see if any shavings/chunks come out?

Yes and both appeared

Need to rebuild the gears and might as well do the clutch/flywheel at the same time. There are plenty on nasioc. Might be in your interest to find the newest yr possible.

Good luck.

i kinda plan on just keeping it as a daily driver so i think ill just get a used trans with low miles. and it already has a fidanza aluminum flywheel so i just need to replace the insert which is easy

Well, you already knew...

Just you didn't WANT to know.... At least you have a plan.

Tis the fate of every 02 WRX. Try not to take it personally.
