My '12 has rattled in neutral since day one when off the clutch. If I push the clutch in, the noise goes away. I am guessing it is slap in the gear box during idle. My Waverunner does something similar when it's out of the water with no load on the gear box.
Two years later, as I posted in another thread, I am suddenly unable to shift into 6th without grinding - hot or cold. It's as if there is no synchro going into 6th anymore. I have been driving this thing for 2 years, 27k miles, and this problem started on my commute on Wed.
However, every other gear shifts perfect, even second.
Any similar experiences? I'll be heading to the dealer this week...

|JeeperMan28||Mine is usually pretty good in warmer weather. Below 50, it's not as smooth shifting. No rattling or other noises, you can just feel it in the shifter. Still happens once the vehicle has fully warmed up.|

|ocd_dave||I would say unless someone has a clear concise answer, and proof of what is the cause, then I would rather not have some dealer service monkeys tearing a perfectly good transmission apart. I want proof of the offending problem with pictures, or evidence, and hopefully a TSB-Recall to correct it.|

|Brian74||I had a similar noise so I brought it to my local mechanic and he discovered the bolts holding the drive shaft came loose. He used loctite and re torqued them . Problem went away. Noise was most noticeable between 3rd -4th when I got on the gas.|

|5doughboy82||Ok I have a 2013 Wrangler Sport with 6 speed manual trans. Took it to my local service department (still under warranty only 11,000 mile) for the marble noise. They couldn't figure it out and pulled trans. and opened it up and said a defective transmission. So they tried to order one and told me the OE part number was no good and they would have to get one off the assemble line and now its been 7 weeks and they still don't have a ETA on the Transmission. Is anybody else having this problem|

I might have a problem?
I might have a transmission problem on a 6 day old JK
I picked up my JK on Saturday morning and spent the weekend racking up 302km of easy driving to break in the engine. I only drove it for short trips the last four days and no off roading other than trying out 4H and 4L in a gravel parking lot. I have been very impressed with the transmission, smoother than I was expecting and have really been enjoying it, until tonight that is.
I had just turned right onto a country road and shifted from second to third at a touch under 3000RPM then got off the accelerator because a pedestrian was crossing the road. When I got back on the accelerator and shifted into fourth the transmission didn't feel right. Now it feels notchy and not nearly as smooth as it has been since I picked it up. It shifted very smooth before but now has a definite mechanical noise and there is a slight resistance when going into gear that wasn't there before.
This really sucks as it's the start of a long weekend and I'm not sure if I should just park it for the weekend or drive it to see if it gets worse or better? I already have an appointment scheduled for Monday morning to have my new Duratracs put on but this could ruin my whole weekend.
Anyone know what this might be? Am I over reacting? It still drives fine but something just doesn't seem right.

Like a couple others, just get slight marble noise in 3rd when accelerating..
1700 miles now, started @ 1k. Not worried about it yet, shifts smooth..

|bimmergirl||New throw-out bearing and clutch for me this past week. I had the marbles in a can noise and a thunk/clunk when shifting and now it's gone. Not sure how long it will last though.|

|keda69||Only have my jeep for a week now, but have over 500 miles on it already. I have driven trucks and sports cars with manuals, and the jeep is definitely like a truck. So if you come from a low clutch grab, and the short shift of a car. The high clutch, long shift, and unrefined feel of the jeep trans will feel "weird" ,but it is perfectly normal for a truck trans. My two cents worth.|

My 2013 does and my 2012 did also
My 2013 does and my 2012 did also, in fact I traded the 2012 in for the 2013 because I thought there was something wrong with the transmission after taking it back to the dealer 3 times for the rattling. Both only rattle while idling with the clutch out. If I engage the clutch the rattling stops. I don't experience any other strange noises otherwise. So I'm assuming it's common, that doesn't mean I like it though . Hope this helps!

|Gord P||Just got off the phone with the adviser.... I'm going to have this Ford Escape for a few more days. I'm getting a new transmission. He said that when they opened it up, they found enough wear that they believed it wouldn't be worth the labour and they were able to get authorization for the new unit. I've only put about 3200 miles on it myself since October and I've been easy on it. I suppose, in the long term, going forward with a new transmission is far better than having a repaired original.|

|Gord P||Mine is a consistent marbles in a can sound in 3rd and 4th once it's warmed up. So, I'm choosing to be optimistic that, based on the shop foreman's confidence in knowing what was happening, the problem will be resolved and all will be right with the world.|

I'll probably eventually take it in, but the thought of tearing my transmission apart to chase down the rattle doesn't thrill me. Especially reading that a new or rebuilt transmission doesn't always solve the problem. I'm waiting to see if it gets any worse, but there's no change after 3 months.
|04-09-2014 01:58 PM|
Indeed, makes me a bit concerned.. However so far I haven't heard anything about complete failures and some people found loose items under the console (x-fer case cable, rubber boot and the like) causing noises that could explain this.
Several people have had parts and entire transmissions replaced and the noise changes (now it's 3-4 at x rpms or the like) or the noise goes away for a little while. Which would make me believe it's not the transmission at all but something else that gets removed/re-attached/moved during removal/installation of the transmission.
Really sounds to me like 'we' are chasing multiple problems. Lots of good suggestions in this thread, if after purchasing I have any noises that seem unusual I'll start with the console 'fixes', change trans oil, check heat shields, etc.. before coming in to the dealer.

|Gord P||I'm really hoping that this annoyance is resolved. I didn't spend that much money to drive something that sounds like crap.|

Had the shop foreman try my 2012 JKU early Saturday morning to check out the marbles in a can sound in 3rd and 4th when the engine is warm. He's confident that he knows what the problem is... I won't embarrass myself by trying to repeat what he said. He did say that he notices the sound goes away when pressing up on the stick in 3rd and down while in 4th. I dropped it off yesterday and I should have it back in a couple days.
I will report back on what they did and the results for those who are experiencing the same issue.

|Wranglerjoe79||I bought a 2013 new in May. Right now it is at 8500 miles. I noticed that I have a rattle in my shifter when in 2nd gear. It sounds like loose change in my cup holder in the console. I actually noticed this probably 5500 miles ago. I never had time to go to the dealer to get it checked out. I was hoping it would go away. But it has not. If I press harder on the shifter leaver, it goes away. It's more of a vibration rattling sound. I don't know what it is. I'm kinda dreading taking it to the dealer, cause I suspect they'll tell me "it's normal" which would piss me off even more. I also noticed the rattling sound from underneath the jeep. If I press the clutch a little bit, it goes away. I don't know if this only happens when the jeep is warm? To me it sounds like a linkage rattling sound. But I don't know. I only hear when I am actually looking for it. Otherwise I kinda tune it out. Ugh.|

|keda69||Damn and to think I ordered a manual ,because they usually have less problems then an auto! I haven't even picked my jeep up yet and I'm worried!|
