Any gearbox/clutch specialists in the house? Diesel Jeep content.
Video just to give an idea of the differences in sound. Sounds normal when clutch pedal is pressed, rattles like fook when I take my foot off the pedal. Sounds also goes if I rev the engine.
Mechanic had the gearbox out, changed the clutch throw out bearing and rebuilt the transfer case, then put everything back together and said it was actually the gearbox needed changing. I’m not so sure, because I think he was just a bit fed up of my daily phone calls asking how long it would take after the 3rd week of him having it.Posted 5 years ago
It’s an actual jeep. 2001 end-of-line Cherokee Sport.
I’ll have a look at the clutch spring.
also, it occasionally makes a horrid metallic whirring noise. I’ve narrowed this down to a flywheel on its way out. Could that be related?
Mini Ox is doing magic thanks. Only one kidney after all the stress, and the specialist is now deciding whether the duff one needs removing. He pisses like a racehorse though, so there’s no worries about his renal function.Posted 5 years ago
That’s the thing trail_rat. Don’t want to spunk £150+ fitting on a 2nd hand gearbox that might fail again in 500 miles if it’s a £40 part I can fit myself. If it’s engine related I can do it, but I’ve been willfully ignorant of gearboxes and clutches since I started working on my cars and it’s finally bit me on the ass.Posted 5 years agolovewookieMember
Sounds like the dual mass flywheel/clutch. my Sharan sounded the same and the noise would go when the clutch was depressed. just had both changed noise has now gone. Mine also used to juddered slightly at a stand still when in gear.
+1, had similar but more noisy on my Tucson, replaced flywheel/clutch and all normal.
well apart from my wallet which was £1k lighter.Posted 5 years ago
try joining an owners forum they will tell you but my limited research says that JEEPS V8 models have had the same clutch since 1974.
2001 seems to be the turning point for them doing a model change for the first time since 1995 so i would doubt it has a DMF UNLESS it is the new model – in which case i havnt a clue :dPosted 5 years ago
