My engine is sounding a little bit different lately. it's kind of like u can hear the gears turning while your driving. is this normal?

its obvious that its not normal.. have you checked your if everything is well lubrocated.. check see if your leaking something? maybe you can hear them because its missing lubrincant and rubbing together.

there is a couple of small drips of purple drips coming from the middle of the chassis. could that be it?

You need to check the fluid levels in your transmission, differentials and transfer case....have you done this yet? Any work or maintanence done recently on it? If so, what?

Is it your engine? You can hear it at idle when sitting in your driveway or at a traffic light.

Or is it the drive-train? You can hear it when you start driving.....a whining sound?

I get the whining and ive heard its fairly normal, but I'm planning to top-off my differential and transfercase fluids and see if that does any good.

Yes we put in a brand new transmission cv joint and radiator about three weeks ago it runs fine and normally it's just that the sound scares me a little bit

@ Tj newbie sounds like u have the same problem as me. when I accelerate it does it but as soon as I put the clutch in it stops. Tell me if u have any luck with yours

NM JEEPS 15 08-30-2010 10:49 PM

also when I'm inside driving I can hear what sounds like gears turning from underneath the steering wheel

98-4Banger 09-01-2010 07:13 PM

oh also question is it a auto or manual? and its possible tht the sound ur hearing is bc there is a problem in ur tranny.. in my moms dodge nitro, she accicdently was bbacking up and while holding gas poped it into drive tires spun like crazy, and i heared a ppop, second time she does it.. and well now you hear gears tranny.. its a clear sounds and not engine. also if auto when u put it in drive does it, pop? like gear engages and you feel a pop.? thts what happenign in my moms truck

98-4Banger 09-01-2010 07:15 PM

nvm u said u got a clutch. ya all i can think of is top up ur fluids. and see if tht changes anything, if not well i dont know what else to do, beside get it checked.
