That's the noise my jeep, a 1986 CJ-7, makes driving in wet conditions. At first I thought it was a squealing fan belt but it isn't. It only happens in wet conditions, tonight we had snow followed by freezing rain then rain. The roads were 6 inches of very wet slush on top of ice. My jeep would squeal as I released the clutch, and put it under load. When I reapplied the clutch it would quiet down or go away. It did it once before but after sitting for 8 hour while I worked it went away. That day was wet earlier and dried up before the end of my shift. It's very embarrassing driving down the road with my jeep screaming like a banshee. Any thoughts?
No, I didn't do it myself. I like to think I'm a pretty good locomotive engineer, and I can do some simple mechanical things but if anyone can screw up a job like that, I will. I have a mechanic that works on my jeep as a side job and he seems to do a pretty good job. Also, I drove it to work today. It ran like a top and not a single squeak. It was sunny today, and the temperature well below zero.
