I have a 1998 ford ranger and just had a new clutch put in and now if my ac is on and I have the car in Nutrual and my foot off the pedal I am getting a cluttering noise but when I push in the pedal or turn off the ac it stops.

Can someone please tell me what this might mean.

The place that put it in is trying to tell me that the noise is in the transmission so they don’t have to replace the clutch and charge me for it.

If you don't hear it with the AC off, I'd suspect the compressor. Just to make sure, unplug the solenoid for the AC compressor and run it and try it with AC turned on and AC turned off.

What I'm trying to rule out is if the added load of the compressor is affecting things or is it the ECM changing how the engine runs under the expected added load of the compressor.
