Clutch Problems

I have a 94 YJ 4.0, 5 speed, with the engine running, transmission in neutral, and my foot off the clutch pedal, it makes a rumbling sound, but when I push in the clutch it stops. Makes no differance which gear the tranfer case is in. Is it the throwout bearing? Or something inside the transmission itself?

Re: Clutch Problems

I would first make sure its not just a vibration being translated upwards. Check your trans mounts, motor mounts, skid plate, etc, and just make sure its not something vibrating.

Re: Clutch Problems

I would guess and say its NOT the Throout bearing, but possibly the pilot bearing, more likely the tranny input bearing.

does it do it when its in gear?

Re: Clutch Problems

its real hard to shift into gear, like the clutch is not letting go, and from what I can hear it still makes the noise.

Re: Clutch Problems

Id be willing to bet there is a bad bearing on teh input shaft of the tranny.

if you caught it soon enough the shaft wont be chewed to bits.

time to R&R that jewel, possibly upgrade.
