    I have a 2005 Saturn Ion with bulletin problem PIP3613. Saturn told me
    it is a problem that has no fix. Had the car at the dealer for over
    two weeks with no resolution.

    The problem is related to a whirring sound when releasing the clutch.
    It started occasionally but it occurs all too frequently.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Get them to try a aftermarket clutch disc as I have little doubt that
    the problem is related to the clutch facing they are using.

    I will have to try that; although, the dealer read me what GM told them
    - or so they said. I doubt it is the throw-out bearing since the sound
    occurs when the clutch is released as opposed to depressed.

    Thanks for the advice.

    It is not the throwout bearing.
