Squeal, how long can I ignore it?

I have a pretty bad squeal when I depress the clutch peddle. The squeal is the worst at about half way. But here's the thing. It only does it sometimes. Like everything will be quiet then it'll start, or it'll start squealing right away and then go silent in a few miles.

So, I assume it is the throwout bearing. The question is, can I safely ignore it for a while?

No dont If it is your throwout bearing you should replace NOW so it dont get hot and melt into the slot where it goes I had a Dakota that the throwout bearing went out and melted inside I spent half a day with a dremmel tool shaving it out clean to instal the new one

Yup, throwout bearing.

+1 on the fast replacement. Don't know how many miles or driving habits, but keeping the clutch in at intersections or even worse, riding it while sriving can make them go bad much faster than normal.

That's what I was afraid of. Just got this jeep recently with 150k miles. Oh well, thanks for the input.

Definitely the throw out, may as well replace the clutch while you're at it. I would upgrade if you haven't already.

I intended to replace the clutch but what did you mean by "upgrade"?

Throw out bearings are no fun to do. If you've got it apart, do the whole clutch. I got a heavy duty LUK replacement for mine last month. Cost me less than $200 from Clutch City here in Largo, Florida. They ship nationally though and the owner is a good dude.. so if you're gonna have it apart anyway, do the whole clutch and resurface the flywheel.

I'd put a rear main seal in while I had the throw out and clutch out. Only time before it leaks, and you're already there.

I always did the three as a set, saves headaches down the road.

Yeah, I ordered the rear main seal. Mine is already leaking.

Does anyone know if I can change the rear main seal with the tranny out without going through the oil pan?

you cant ignore it, it will leave you stranded, probably at the worst time.

and its a clutch pedal, not peddle.... Sorry, but that made me laugh, I can just see your clutch on the street corner trying to peddle your stuff to unsuspecting motorists...

you will still have to remove your oil pan, sorry, but its not hard to do....
Unless your rear main is a one piece, im actually not so sure about that one, I know the 4.2 had a rope type seal.
