After months of searching the net I finally came across this! I have a 03 Liberty Sport (ya ya i know not a wrangler). 3.7L V6 42RLE with 90000 KM's (56 000 miles).
For 2-3 years now, I keep hearing a "dziga-dziga-dziga" sound coming from the transmission. It happens at all times, idle, etc (so it MUST be from the transmission as someone said earlier). It's very hard to describe this annoying sound. But SolarStar's analogy makes sense, like cards in a bicycle's spokes.
It follows RPM. I just started it before, and the sound was quieter than usual in parked. (its our first relatively warm day up here in canada since last summer). After a quick 2 minute drive, the sound is louder, again in park.
It's not something that is VERY loud, if you have a bit of music playing while driving you can't hear it. But if you're next to a wall or another car, its quite apparent and very irritating.
SolarStar if you could find a way to post that video somewhere just so I can know I'm not the only one on the planet with this issue..
or maybe you've resolved the issue?

|pkmcd99||A damaged pilot bearing will follow rpm. A seriously damaged bearing will off center the input shaft and can cause expensive wear if not fixed. Most trans shops will give free diagnos and estimate. Highly recommend doing this. The only big cost is trans remival, parts are fairly reasonable.|

Thanks for helping me out I reallynappreciate it. This is driving me crazy....
No after market skids, mounts look good. Stock DS. All nuts and bolts from lift are tight. This noise is definitely in the tranny.

|SolarStar||Is there anyway to post a video....I just made a clip of the sound.|

|pkmcd99||I must have not read your post clearly. If your having the same noise at idle its in your tranny. Sounds like a pilot bearing on the input shaft, as that is always rotating. How are your mounts? If the bushings are gone you may be getting vibration noises, metal on metal sounds. Check em out, have you put any skid plates on aftermarket? Any cv driveshafts? Are all your effected nuts bolts tight on the lift? Jeep auto trannys are quite durable and can even handle torque from v-8 conversions. Pilot bearings are noisy little 5$ bearings. They fail more frequently in manuals, but have neen known to go in autos.|

Upon second inspection I noticed the rubber seal that is where the FDS mets the transfer case has been torn apart.
Still since this clicking/ticking happens in park while revivng wouldn't be TC issue, but thatnis just my very amateur deduction.

|TexasChalk||Roughly Same thing is happening to my 03 wrangler x...I'm trying to find out to and will let you know if I can fin anything out even if we don't have the same jeep and stuff it should be pretty similar?|

Would I have to pull transfer case to inspect it further?
|02-07-2012 02:06 PM|
|pkmcd99||Or bearings on the output or input shafts...hard to say without actually looking at it.|
|02-07-2012 02:04 PM|
|pkmcd99||Have you inspected the transfercase? Sounds like possibly a tcase chain to me.|

|SolarStar||Sound occurs in both 2 and 4wd|

Tranny is ticking/clicking UGH!!!
A few weeks ago a my 08 jKU w 25,000 miles on it developed a clicking/ticking sound. Ive barely driven it since.
It's definately coming from the tranny area. It almost sounds like metal cards in bicycle spoke.
It occurs in Park and 1st, 2nd, 3rd gear, not OD and not in reverse. Does it at idle and while driving. The clicking sound follows the RPMs. While driving it occurs cold or hot, at start up it happens without touching gas only when cold. A warm start sound won't occur until you rev the engine.
Its sounds similar to a bad lifter but it's not a lifter. THere are not metal flakes in the tranny fuid which is nice clear and pink.
Jeep drives totally normal. It's not slipping, clunking, shuddering, nothing but the tick.
My best guess would be cracked flex plate or cracked planetary gears maybe???
Any insight or experience with something like this....
