Need Help w/Drivetrain Problem
I have a symptom that I need help with. Driving to work today my Samurai lost all power to the rear wheels. When I was accerelating (I can't remember if I was shifting gears or not) and it felt like the clutch just disapeared and all rear wheel power suddenly went away. I drifted to the side of the road and I checked the clutch cable which is fine. I started the engine again, which tells me that the flywheel is still in tact, and pushed in the clutch. I can put the transmission in gear with the clutch either engaged or disengaged and nothing happens. It seems that the clutch is either gone bad, which I doubt since it has not given me no prior indications, or perhaps the throw-out bearing went south.
So basically the symtoms are no rear wheel power with clutch engaged, engine spins, no burn clutch smell, clutch pedal does seems a little different.
My best guess if my throw-out bearing is FUBAR. Anyone else agree/disagree?
