Whining

I have a 94 jeep wrangler 2.5l 5-speed Manuel and as I'm driving there is a whining coming from the motor area, but when I push the clutch in it stops. It's not loud, but very annoying and If there's a problem I want to catch it before it gets worse. Thanks.

When you press the clutch, do you keep you foot on the gas or you take it off as well?
I have a whining as well but it's really loud.
Give more details if you can. I would run the engine without the belt on for a very short period of time, to see if the noise goes away. If it does, one of your accessorie is the culprit, otherwise, the search keeps on going.

I don't give it any gas while clutch is in. While I'm
Driving, say 4th gear around 45 mph, it whines. When I go to shift, I push the clutch and the whining stops. When I release it, it comes back. It does it in every gear. Whether I'm doing 5 mph or 60. It only goes away when I push the clutch in

I have the same issues. I parked the jeep. A mechanic told me it's the possie throw out bearing. Going to work on it this weekend. The trans needs to come out!

Yeah. I'd guess your throw out bearing is falling apart. Mine was in 3 pieces for a while. Made an awful noise until the clutch was pressed. Easy enough fix if you don't mind dropping the trans.

Check the bearings on all your belt pulleys. I had two horrible whines and turns out my alternator bearings and belt tensioner were worn out

LMAO!!! Now why on earth would you think that? Just cause they drive "plastic jeeps"?

To the OP, It sounds like its the throw out bearing, or it could be the input shaft bearing as well.
