I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4 cylinder 5 speed

Customer Question

Hello I have a 1998 Mitsubishi Montero Sport 4 cylinder 5 speed manual transmission. When I have the clutch ingsuged it runs and sounds fine, but once I realease the clutch it makes a loud clicking sound.Like a baseball card sounds in bike spokes. The sound increases speed as I accelerate but the vehicle shifts through all the fears fine. I don't seam to loose power although I haven't driven much since the problem started for fear of doing further damage. I did install a new clutch thinking that was the issue but after completion the same sound was still happening. Do you know what could be causing this problem?
