HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was dirving today when my jeep started to make like a whisling noise lood and clear. it used to do it rarely but not all the time when its cold. it seems to start only at 2500rpms and stops when i press on the clutch
it very loud sounds like a hiss or a scream
or even wind in a whisle. some people sais it was the clutch bearing does anyone have any idea what it could be?

Sounds like the throw out bearing - I had the same problem in my '85 CJ-7. But check all your options, no need to replace good parts - save the money for upgrades!

Unhappily, I would have to agree with your friends. Everything I looked up pionts to that area. 1.)Release bearing binding on transmission shaft, 2.)Pilot bushing worn, 3.)Clutch rivets loose, 4.)clutch plate cracked, 5.)fatigued clutch plate torsion springs. Finally if your real lucky maybe the pedal needs to be adjusted for free play. On my Ford Ranger I had a very similar noise that turned out to be the pilot bearing. Good Luck.

don't forget to check the belts before you go nuts with the rest

I just changed out my throwout bearing .. it was a fairly easy job to do on my Peogot tranny behind my 4.2l engine .. having a spare pair of arms really helps!

I picked up the new bearing from Autovalue for $160, and with the help of a friend had it completed in about 4 hours time.

First thing to do is remove the shift levers.
Second is remove the drive shafts
Third is the starter
Fourth is to setup a rack to hold the weight of the tcase (2x4's would do the trick) and use tie-down straps to hold it.
Fifth is remove the hoses, lines, wires, etc
Sixth is the removal of a couple bolts holding the tranny to the engine
7th is remove the throwout assembly and replace ..

It takes some time, but the effort is not too high.
