I just got a jeep and i noticed that it makes a rattling noise after its been running for a few mins..... the noise only happens when the clutch is disengaged... When i push the clutch in the noise goes away..... The dealership told me this is normal?? But when i take a long trip - 70 miles.... The noise is pretty loud.... when i get where i am going and have stopped....
- Anyone know what this is... and is it suppose to get loud the longer you drive the jeep..... any way to make this go away?
I hate to say this, but it is normal - That can either relieve you or piss you off - it pissed me off at first - but after Chrysler rebuilt my whole tranny, it still did it - it is the slack in the gears - it will not hurt anything. Turn your radio up. - and tell DC to kiss your *** and tighten their tolerances up. No reason that noise should be there.
is it suppose to get louder... like pretty loud.. if you drive ur car for a long time????
Mine never got louder. When they replaced my transmission, they told me it had a bad countershaft, yet the noise is still there. If you took a poll on this board, about half would say they have the same noise. If it is extremely loud, by all means have it checked out. - if it sounds like a loose marble, but not real loud, probably the same noise a lot of us have. - There was a bulletin from DC about this, but I think it was 2000 and older models. What year do you have?
I have a 2000 (I know you asked for 2002+) that does the same thing. I took it back to the dealer after I got it and they said it was normal. And having browsed many a Jeep board it appears that is indeed the case. Sounds bad at first, but eventually you will begin to ignore it.
I have an 04 that does it, I haven't really paid any attention as to whether it gets louder or not after long trips though. I'm just used to it since I had a 95 that did it as well. If it gets to annoying, I just engage the clutch every once in a while to shut it up.
Yip my 2004 Sport does the same thing!! The idiots at Chrysler said it was because I used my vehicle off road and the thrust bearing is wet!!!
My remedy: Get a 4" lift with 33's that will sort out that problem LOL!
I just bought a jeep wrangler '08 a week ago. it had 37,000 miles on it. It started makin a rattling noise after a week or so, only when gas is applied or on idle. Fortunately I have found where it was coming from. If you look under the jeep, on the exhaust muffler pipe below the tranny, there is a heat shield welded onto the exhaust pipe. with time this heat shield will expand and contract, the spot welds will eventually break! So what I did was just re-weld them and that awful sound was no more...if that doesn't solve the problem you may have to try looking for other areas with spot welds, joints, bushings, etc...hope this helps!
i was told that it was the cat. converter that was making the rattling. maybe loose, just wore out. i had a 95 yj 4lit. 6cyl. h.o. all stock and i took it to JEEPSTERS in soddy daisy tn and the mech. was replacin my breaks and i ask him what it was and he said it was the converter and hit it with his hand and it made the vibration/rattling.... Problem solved
