What would make my clutch make a "crunching" type noise when depressed and released? I can also feel it on my foot. Only does it after it gets warmed up. Thanks in advance.
Oh...this clutch was put in brand new when I had my new 4.0 put in this past winter too.

Just a question but have you checked the reservoir to see if it's empty? Also is it only the pedal and not the shifter? are you trying to put it into gear when you are pressing/ releasing the clutch pedal.

It's only in the pedal. Shifting is very smooth. Reservoir is full too.

Does it sound like gears grinding or like a clicking clunk noise

No no no. It's definitely not grinding gears.
Even with it not running, after driving, press the clutch in and it makes the noise. Could it be the slave cylinder?
Again.....it only does it after it's been driven....and DOES make the noise when engine isn't even running while pushing the clutch in and releasing it.

It sounds like a dried up cable would sound....for example a bike brake cable that is rusted

Could be the master cylinder or the lines/ bar that leads up to it. That's what connects by your clutch pedal. The slave is what connects to the side of the transmission and pushes against the throw out bearing inside the tranny. So from what you say it sounds like the pedal alone especially if the jeep is off.

Start with the pedal and go from there. Get up under the steering column and wiggle the pedal around/ push it in by hand. I'm thinking that if it was a hydraulic line then your reservoir would be low or leaking from slave cylinder underneath the jeep.

I already know the noise is coming from underneath....around the tranny area.

Then it's possibly the slave or could be internal like the throw out bearing.

Well the shop seems to think its the "ball" that the fork pivots on inside the tranny. It's pretty strange because last night I got off of the interstate and it stopped doing it. It still hasn't done it today even. So I don't know what ta hell is going on!
He thinks the ball thing could be wore out or have a place on it where it's, so- called.....catching.
