squeeky squeeky! help!

aight so my 1997 TJ is making squeeky noises! i dunno why! i didn't do anything that i can remember to it.

Does the sound speed up when you go faster? I'd inspect your u-joints. They might need grease or replaced.

is it possible that there is oil or something on the flywheel causing the squeaking when the clutch isn't fully engaged? sorry if this is a dumb idea i'm no mechanic.

Probably the same noise that I hear in my jeep that I CANNOT find. I only hear it on cold mornings, and it goes away if I shift into 4wd.

Sounds like it is comming from below and forward of the shifter, but I will try what you say (anything could help, i'm clueless).

i used to have this problem when i lived in daytona... when crusing the beach lookin at bikinis, doing the slow ass speed limit i had a constant squeak from the front left wheel. Speed up at all or tap teh brakes and it went away. Nowadays i dont go slow enough for long enough periods of time to here it.

it might be the fan clutch here is a suggestion:
get a long one inch by 9 inch piece of wood put it on the different places that you think the sound is coming from put the wood by your ear you will be able to tell the different pitch in the wood the one that sounds high and not in harmony with the others is a good chance what is the cause of your squeaking.

i get a little noise like that too from my front drivers side wheel area. Not sure what it is.. im guessing it has something to do with the spring or the 2" bb that i put in since it only started after i put it in....
If i can figure it out i will let ya know what i did to fix it.
