2000 Subaru Legacy Outback Transmission

The mannual transmission acts funny. When you take your foot off the gas, and the car is still in gear is “jogs” heavily. At this moment it makes a metal on metal grinding noise, which is audible for blocks. We’ve had it looked at few times this year, and no mechanic can even diagnose the problem, aside from recommending a new transmission.
