Noise Help!!

I have a 95 2.5 with a 5 speed. 217K miles. I went to a mechanic and got the diagnosis that my throwout bearing was bad. So i replaced the clutch (complete kit) last night and the metallic clanging noise that led me to believe that the throwout bearing was bad is still here. Long story short I have checked to make sure it was not any of the accessories by pulling the belt and running it for a few minutes. Also the flywheel teeth look fine. The noise seems to be coming from the rear if the engine. Past the bell-housing for sure. Anyone have any ideas what it can be? Also when i shut the key off and the engine whines down there is a large metallic clang as soon as it stops.

Sounds like it's maybe the input shaft to the tcase or maybe the rear mani bearing. I am not the strongest on the mechanical side so here is a bump for the day shift guys.

Check for slack in the transfer case chain.

Also, there is a mount attached to the transmission that supports the exhaust system. It tends to crack in half, and can cause clanging noises with throttle and speed changes. If it is broken, you will only know by getting under the jeep with a strong flashlight and grabbing and moving the exhaust in that area. It hardly moves, but will still cause noise.

rtillery34 I found out that my starter was stuck engaged and that blew out the bearing in the starter causing an awful racket. I took it off and pop started it to make sure it was really the problem and I had no noise, ran like a dream. try that and see how it goes. cheapest place to start it seems

I thought that may also be the problem! I did take it off and inspect it but didn't think about pop starting it to see if that was actually what's causing the noise. Thanks ill try that!
