High pitch noise, maybe from the flywheel?

I have a 95 yj, stick, 2.5l and its been making a high pitched noise, almost like dust on a brake disc if not worse, and it only makes it when my foot is off the clutch. As soon as i press in the clutch it goes away. It kinda sounds like its on the passenger side or in the middle, in the front half of the vehicle. It tends to happen at 30-45 or more mph. Its so high to where its hard to tell exactly what area its coming from. Its also kinda cold here at nights now so i guess that could be a factor. My brakes are squeaking but i dont see how they could squeak while the brake isnt engaged, and it sounds different than when the brakes are engaged. Any idea or anybody with the same problem? Please help

Mine does this sometimes, and I think it is the throw out bearing from the clutch.

I have a 2002 TJ manual and it does the same but goes away with the pressing of the gas pedal. Not brakes because it does it at a dead stop...A clutch bearing would fit that. Anyone got any other suggestions

Maybe the pilot bearing? If you push the clutch in your throwout bearing engages and disengages the clutch. If you release it engages it and spins the main shaft and pilot bearing.

Throw out bearing if it is a internal you have to buy a new slave cylinder. Remove transmission. I found one at Orielley's for 84.00 this is the best price next best is Turner 4X4 they are in town for me so that's good also. Do not let it go too long it will lock up and could tear up the other clutch parts and or leave you stranded.

Chirping noise????

I have a chirping noise that almost sounds like a bird, it chirps about 4 times a second. It sounds like it might be coming from clutch/flywheel area. But u know how high pitched sounds are, its hard to tell where theyre at. Then again it sounded like maybe the tranfer case, ugh. Any idea anybody?

ok just kinda nailed it down to the belt line or something on the belt or the belt itself. Its coming from the altenator in my opinion but my hearing isnt perfect. i have a 95 yj, 2.5l. and im not too good with engines, its parts, and their functions. Im better at axles and driveshaft stuff so please any help would be great

Im young and need some help

Im very new to all this, about to turn 17, and have learned so much already. But most of what iv learned is at the back half of the jeep (driveshaft, axles, differential and its details and gears, ratios) and a whole bunch more. But, what i dont know too much is about the stuff under the hood. I know how pistons crank the crankshft and all that, but dont know much about the little things like radiator, alternators, the clutch and its system, and a whole lot more. Any diagrams or pictures that will help me identify essential things under the hood is what i need, and from there ill go on google to see its functions and how it works. I have a 95 yj, 4 banger, thank you
