It very could well be that a bearing is failing. I am assuming you are hearing something like a whining noise if I am thinking correctly? Does it sound similar to when a front wheel bearing is going bad?

they said it was the clutch getting low so im under the truck changeing the oil and fuel filter and drip in the forhead and runs into my eye after fighting with the burning i look further and the seal the conects the tail of the trans is leaking but the clutch is getting low as well but its also leaking so im going to have some one else pull it for me and i get to rip it apart and replace seals inside as well as rev. gear not much and ill be inside it as well so y not. ill try to post pics up of the whole thing being done hopefully step by step this time.
