Throw out bearing or maybe slave cylinder?

So after my fun last night http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/sitt...oad-92122.html I started to hear a popping sound when shifting. It may be that I was just paying a little more attention but I am pretty sure it wasn't there before...

Anyway, when I engage the clutch I get a pop that feels and sounds like it is coming from the right side which made me think the slave. Then I did some general googling and found that a lot of times it's the throw out...

If I engage slowly it doesn't do it, and mostly going into 3rd is when it happens.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the info on the slave, I just recalled what my CJ had and it was on the passenger side...

When I push the clutch in *pop* change gears then release the clutch *pop*.


I also on occasion have difficulty getting it into first when I'm stopped... the PO said the clutch was replaced "not long ago" with a Centerforce Clutch...

Could the synchronizers cause something like this?

i have only changed one clutch before and that was about a month ago. if i were to guess, i would guess its inside your bell housing. (throw out bearing,fork, pivot ball clip).

I cant tell you what it is, but others might be able to help later.

There is a test you can do.

test one- remove the slave cyl and have someone press down on the clutch while you are holding the slave and pushing in on the rod.

test 2- where the slave goes into the bell housing stick a large screw driver in the same hole and press on the fork.

by doing these test you should be able to eliminate whether it is hydraulic (slave, master) or mechanical ( pressure plate, fork, throwout)

Good call, I'll give it a go.

With video!

I made a video this morning of the popping sound. Not that clear but now I am almost starting to think it is maybe a transmission mount or some other type of mount. Take a look (listen) and tell me what you think...
