throwout bearing ?:'(

Got the annoying hiss sound on one of my vehicles again and this time the jeep . Hissing goes away when clutch pedal is pressed in . Is it throwout bearing? . (yes I did look under seat for a snake and found none)

I'm pretty sure that the muffler bearing makes a hissing sound when you don't add catalytic fluid to the exhaust reservoir.

I had a throwout bearing go bad less than 1000 miles after replacing a clutch once, I found a lot of steel balls when I opened it up.

I put in the shift arm backwards when I replaced my clutch last month, the slot and the spring clip orientation do make a difference. It's a brand new LuK Pro Gold and it is hissing/squeaking too. I realize now that the orientation was wrong and when I installed my SYE I installed the shift arm properly. I haven't run it since I fixed it but I bet that will have fixed the problem.

I know my throwout bearing it probabky in pieces and the only thigh holding it together is the housing its in , but is it safe to drive with it like that until I actually have to replace clutch?

Safe yes but once you completely destroy it you will not be able to shift the jeep (ask me how I know) LOL. It took me about 3 or so hours to replace my clutch last saturday. Really not that hard, you don't even have to drop the tranny all the way out of the truck.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

I drove for a while with a broken throwout bearing. I never got to the point that I could not shift but it screamed like a banshee and people stared at my jeep whenever I shifted.

I've done several and recommend a good floor jack and a transmission jack (cheap ones at harbor freight work). Then get a good manual a good friend or two, a Luk clutch kit and a level piece of concrete and have a go at it. Use the floor jack to hold up the engine and use the tranny jack to hold and move the tranny and Tcase back to the rear to access clutch. The Tcase has it's weight to one side so be aware that they will want to roll off the jack when loose from the engine.

I assume both drive shafts need to be removed also? I want to tackle this job this summer but I'll probably be looking at replacing the t-case skid nutserts and driveshaft u-joints at the same time while I'm down there, hell might as well SYE and TT lol!
