DILLIGAF One of my mechanic has a gizmo that blowes smoke thru the vacume lines, it makes it very easy to find the leak.

I agree with this. Symptoms are exactly how the vacuum acts in an engine in use. Idle-high vac, under load-low vac, cruisin speed-back to high vac.

anfunk3 I have the same exact problem and I can't find a resolution anyway. Wondering if anyone has figured it out or has anymore ideas. The squealing is driving me insane. Thanks!!

Fweaky I agree with tlrrob1000, I would say clutch pilot bearing also if the squealing stops when you push in the clutch.

mkyv_18 Im having a similar problem. did you find a resolution?

Thanks, Mike

tlrrob1000 Something else that can cause a squeel is the pilot bearing. Try and see if it changes pitch while you push the clutch in and out.

forker Basically, the squeal changes pitch as I hit the gas, generally, the lower the rpm the higher the pitch. And as I accelerate, the squeal goes away, until I reach cruising speed and don't need to push on the gas as hard.

A second note to the problem that could very likely be related. Previous owners of this jeep didn't take the best of care of it. The oil had/has a large amount of sludge and the pressure has always seemed to be a bit on the high side. This last oil change, I ran some cleaner through it before changing the oil and the pressure problem subsided a bit. And after a day of driving the squeal doesn't seem to be as loud, it's still there and acting as it has been, but just a little quieter, just a little though.

I don't know. Wits end over here.

tlrrob1000 I was leaning toward the the intake or exhaust manifolds. But it goes away under load?

Squealing from the engine compartment

So I have a 95 2.5 wrangler and there has been this persistant squeal comming from under the hood. It seems to be comming from the vicintity of the fuel injectors, but really sounded like a belt squeal. After replacing the belt, I concured it wasn't a belt.

The squeal starts up after the engine has warmed up. When the engine is under some considerable load, ie, acceleration, the noise stops, except when I push in the clutch to shift gears, in which the squeals returns. Then, once I reach cruising speeds and not accelerating anymore, the noise builds back up.

This noise is driving me crazy, so if anyone has any idea, please, I'm loosing my mind!
