Samurai is making noise when I step on the clutch

I have the stock engine. When I start the car in the morning and I press the clutch, the noise starts. After driving for a couple of minutes, the noise is gone. When the Samurai is warmed up, it is not making any type of noise anymore. It sounds like something is loose or something but I do not know where it is coming from. The Samurai runs well. It is just a noise when the engine is cold and when I step on the clutch. Thank you for your reply.

you may want to check your clutch bearing... did you drive in some deep water recently?

Describe the noise a little more. Is it like a loose bolt sound, grinding sound, or what? I might be able to help if I know what the noise is a little better.

Re: Samurai is making noise when I step on the clutch

People told me it is the throwout bearing in the clutch that is making the noise. What will happen when I drive it like that? I am thinking about waiting until I replace the clutch then replace the bearings and that might be a while since my clutch seems like it has a lot of life in it.

It sounds like a loose bolt shaking and it is hiting metal. But I really cannot tell what it sounds like.

Thank you for your reply.

better take the thing apart and check..... imagine...what happens if the bearing got stuck or self destruct into many tiny pieces.... you not only change bearing then but you also might have to get a new clutch. The bearing cost little compared to the clutch. Just my MR0.02 cents

Re: Samurai is making noise when I step on the clutch

I am currently replacing a transmission in my new blue zuke because the person I bought it from didn't install the throw-out bearing right. The bearing flew apart and totally destroyed the inside of the bell housing including the clutch plate, clutch arm and ripped a 4" hole through the tranny itself!!!! I can see the gears and stuff through the hole.
Granted, this is an extreme worst case senario, but it shows what can happen if you let the problem go and worry about it later.
PS. the damage was done before I bought it......got it for cheap!!

DParker, this tranny is potentially in to bad of shape to be rebuilt. When I went to remove it, I opened the drain plug and about 3oz of what looked like anti-seieze and some big metal chunks fell out. I have promised the case to Robzuk already.
