Recently started noticing rattling/rumbling noise and jerky rough idle movement from car when stationary at traffic lights, but when I press the clutch down the noise goes and the jerky movement stops.. also noticed on cold starts I may get a loud screeching noise but disappears with abit of a high revs ???

Playing on my mind recently any ideas anyone ??

Without taking it to a garage you are not going to know.

The jerky movements could be anything from a low idle to needing a new clutch
The screeching is most prob a lose belt but again this isn't something that can be diagnosed 100% from the description

Is the servicing up to date?

The screeching noise sounds like the fan belt needs changing or adjusting.

Make and model would help a bit.

The screeching most likely is one of the belts, probably the fan belt as suggested above, some older cars have belts for power steering as well, it may just need adjustment, The rumbling sounds like the thrust bearing in the clutch is worn, it will need replacement, so you will probably need to replace the whole clutch assembly as it usually comes as a kit, and the plate is likely to be worn as well

My thoughts as well release bearing came to mind .Whole clutch pack most likely if release bearing that bad.

Turn the stereo up.

Sounds like the rumbling could well be the dual mass flywheel is knackered

All belts have been changed not so long ago thought it might have been the turbo becuase I get a sudden surge of power when the noise stops like pressure has built up etc.. Also I personally think it's the dmf wheel but thanks for the opinions people !!

It's almost certainly the clutch release bearing if noise goes when you press the clutch down.

Wouldn't be a Vauxhall by any chance? I had exact same problem. As said above its the dual mass flywheel which needs changing. You also need to change the clutch and slave cylinder. Mine is being done now, looking at £500+. It will soon become undrivable.

Yh looks that way and it's a ford, what you reckon best taking it to dealership or local independent garage (don't really trust anyone to take a job on of that magnitude)

Is it a mondeo by any chance? Usually cheaper to get a solid flywheel conversion kit that comes with the clutch and concentric slave cylinder as well. Probably looking at the best part of £650 in total to be sorted by an independent, would not like to think what main dealer would charge!

Sounds like dmf tbh, Could also be thrust bearing but as it disappears when clutch pressed then dmf is very likely to be the fault.
