I have a 1993 wrangler 4.0. The motor and tranny were just rebuilt very recently. It also has a rebuilt 4:11 rear and had a new clutch. Not long ago I rolled it offroading, but luckily there was no serious damage. I let it sit for a couple days, changed the fluids and everything seemed fine.
A few days later it began to make rubbing/spinning noise when the clutch was engaged, but stopped when it was released. The noise got worse to the point where you could alwyas hear it, but it got worse when the clutch was engaged. I have been told that it sounds like an issue with the throwout bearing, but anything i saw about the throwout bearing said that it made the noise all the time but stops when the clutch is engaged.
Before I got into anything serious i bled it and at first the noise went away but after about 20 min it started again but was much softer. I bled it again, but the noise continued. While bleeding it, I noticed that the bleeder valve and the clutch line next to it moved side to side fairly freely. It is an internal slave, so i couldn't see if it came loose or was supposed to do that. The jeep does shift into all gears smooth and easily.
I was wondering if it was more likely to be the throwout bearing or the slave cylinder, or something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
