high pitch whine

Hi all,

Occationally when my jeep is running I hear a high pitch whine. It is a little concerning. Any thoughts?

No thoughts here, not without a general idea of where you think the whine might be coming from anyway. Engine? Drivetrain? Stereo? Wife?

when you push the clutch does the noise go away or change volume.

I had that type noise once years ago, it must have been the throw out bearing, but like many things on the old jeep over the years, it made less and less noise and now its been years since I have heard the noise.
clutch works fine.

(guess it tired of waiting for me to fixed the problem, so it fixed itself)

when you hear the noise, take the belts off and see if you still hear the noise, could be a water pump, alternator bearing, power steering bearing.

check all fluid levels front/rear differentials, transfer case, trans, motor oil levels

coolant level,

I had a whistling whine coming from under the hood on a 1982 six cylinder. Found a suggestion somewhere on this forum that the next to the last intake manifold bolt would loosen and cause a whistling at speed. That single bolt on mine was slightly loose and the whistling went away with a little light wrenching.
