What kind of car? Is it a whining or whirling sound? It's fairly common for the input shaft bearing inside the tranny to go on higher mileage 5 speed Hondas.

Is it only downshifting? could be the throw out bearing like other people have said.

Does it do it when the clutch pedal is pressed in or when you are letting the clutch pedal go after downshifting? If it makes the noise when the clutch pedal is pressed in, it's the throwout bearing. If it does it when the clutch pedal isn't pressed, it's the input shaft bearing.

Check your transmission fluid first or replace it if you haven't serviced it for a while. it may just need lubrication

ya i was thinking that i might just need to get the fluid changed.... but to YK86.. its actually only when the clutch is out!!! when i have the clutch in there is no noise.... its not bad but i hate hearing sounds that i dont know.... How much do you guys think it would cost to get that fixed??? if it is the bearings?
