My car has 130000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hey there. This could be anything from something simple as a differential clutch connector problem to something more serious, such as a mechanic failure with clutches, rear axle, or coupling. You should have a Check Engine Light of some kind on as well if the AWD is not working properly. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose and repair this problem.
