Derek1883 Yup. Throwout bearing is bad. And because I neglected it for such a long time they might need to replace the input shaft. Hopefully they don't have to, but learn from my mistake.

Derek1883 I've made arrangements Tuesday with AAA to have them take a look at it. Although I'm fairly confident it's the throwout bearing. When they tell me for sure ill update the thread.

Zurn Everything said so far is good advice. But if I were you, I would check underneath for one of these....

Derek1883 Sorry for not replying, I still haven't had it looked at. And whatever it is, being throwout bearing or the pressure plate, it most definitely has to be the transmission. As of late, I have had some issue shifting into 2nd and 3rd with some grinding, even with the clutch all the way in. I will hopefully have it looked and fixed before July ends.

Other possibilities

I have seen a throwout bearing make that noise, but I personally had one of the springs break on the pressure plate (Part of the clutch assembly) and make a noise like that.

What did it turn out to be and how did you fix it

div4gold I would suspect the throwout bearing.

Noise from under my Jeep


This is my first time post/thread, so please bear with me.

I have a 2001 TJ 4.0l 5speed with about 144k miles. I have owned the jeep since 2008, and about a year ago my clutch went out. In January(I hope this is of relevance), my jeep was ran into in my neighborhood, actually costing $7,000 in damages. The auto shop fixed everything, even giving me a brand new front axle. So I am not sure if this would be a factor in what im dealing with.

So here is the "issue". Yesterday, at the college I commute to, I put the jeep into first gear and I heard rattling noise that came from underneath the stick shift. The Rattle noise was brief, and then a squeaking noise happened. And this has never happened, i figured that i would rev up the engine a bit, and the rattling/squeky noise was "in tune" or would match the revving of my engine. I assume, even though I am a Noob, that it would have to be clutch/transmission related.

Please throw out some ideas, or similiar experiences. If I can do it myself, it would be awesome, because im a poor college student!
