Rattle..The noise occurs when first let off the clutch..RPM

Customer Question

I have a metal rattle that sort of sounds like an off balance fan. The noise occurs when first let off the clutch and at low RPM''s only. Once I get up to a decent RPM, the noise goes away. I have a Ford f150 1999 manual transmission, 4wd.

The way you are describing it, it sounds like the release bearing (throw out bearing). If the noise goes away when you push the clutch pedal down then that would be the release bearing.
