Hello, I own a silver 2014 FiST with 96000 miles on it I recently noticed a sound coming from my engine bay a month ago. I start the car and you hear this mechanical sound at idle, a kind of grinding rattle type sound. When I push in the clutch the sound goes away, but when I release the clutch shift through the gears the same noise. I plan on taking my FiST to my mechanic this weekend but I’m wondering if anyone else has this same issue. I’ve found some videos on YouTube where the owners are having the same issue. I’ve also noticed that my FiST lurches and wines when driving at low speeds 15mph. Please help if you can.

History of my vehicle
at around 15k-20k my FiST transmission went out July 2014 in warranty
at around 60500 my FiST lost the clutch January 2018 just out of warranty
at around 61000 my FiST needed rear breaks due to the breaks seizing

in 2016 I attended my first auto Cross event summer x2

I do down shift but I never go over 4K RPM
I've been teaching my wife to drive my car (she likes to keep her foot on the clutch) occasionally will miss shift 2-1 when trying to go to 3. She stalled it a couple times, but she’s getting better) could that be my issue lol.
