94 YJ makes noise when letting off gas in high gear
Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I just picked up a 2.5L 94 YJ the other day. This is my second Jeep (first was an '01 automatic; got rid of it because I had a long commute).
Anywho, the body on this Jeep is excellent no rot or rust to be found, very well taken care of. I knew it wasn't going to be 100% being 17 years old. When driving it home on the highway I noticed when I was in 4th or 5th and let off the gas it would start to make a loud noise that sounded like a card rubbing against spokes, but rougher. As soon as I would hit the gas it would go away.
Also, in the lower gears it shudders sometimes when accelerating.
I'm thinking it might be the synchromesh rings in the transmission.
