clutch noise

don't know if i have a problem yet but:

as i returned home from a 250 mile drive, pulled into the driveway and waiting for garage door to open- pressed in clutch and heard a "ticking" noise at a beat with the idleing engine. i put in neutral and clutch out - the noise stopped. put in clutch and noise again.

anyway, fired it up in the garage an hour later and no noise.

i will investigate further this week but just wondered what is going on?

throwout bearing?

i've never rebuilt a clutch before.

shifts fine in all gears.

thanks

Re: clutch noise

I would say it is time for a TO bearing.

Thanks, Ray

Re: clutch noise

sounds like a throwout bearing going bad ...On an 87 I don't know for sure but if it is hydrolic check the fluid first.

Re: clutch noise

I'm pretty sure that the Rays are right. Start the Jeep and put it in neutral. I assume that you do not have the clicking sound in this position. Push in on the clutch just enough to feel the throw-out bearing touch the clutch. If the clicking starts when the bearing touches the clutch, then I think that you are on to your problem.

Re: clutch noise

just checked the fluid and it's ok.

may sound funny but as we were on the freeway about 30 miles from home, on flat ground, we smelled hot brakes, you know like when going down a hill and a big rig with hot brakes.

we were miffed at the time because there was no hill and we wondered who it could be.

could it have been me? do clutches burn like brakes since they are made of similar material?

i was not doing any shifting. don't know if i would smell myself at 65 mph.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

Re: clutch noise

well i just started it and clutch is not making any noise.

this is a good thing![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

maybe something else though![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

just now when i started it, the clicking noise happened but the clutch was not in. this has happened a few times before and i thought it sounded like a sticky valve lifter. i would shut off the engine and noise would go away upon re-start.

hope i don't have to do any major job before my death valley trip!

thanks for yor help, RAY, RAY, and SADDLETRAMP!!!![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: clutch noise

If it is a 258 it is hard to find one that doesn't have valve ticking sometimes, mine has done it on and off since new, sticky hydraulic lifter is what I've always figured.

Re: clutch noise

Clutches and brakes both smell the same. Sounds like it may be something more from your last post. I don't think that I would be too excited about making a trip to the outback without further investigation/repair. (I'm thinking that something is out of whack with the clutch system/pilot bushing. I'm sure others will know more about this)
