I need help pin pointing this noise.
The jeep is a 2001 TJ with 157,000 miles. 4.0 I-6 engine. 5 speed NV3550 tranny, NV231 transfer case.
Best example of the noise is at 1:07-1:19 and 1:24- 1:45.
The noise is heard when the clutch is depressed and when the clutch is released. The sound seems to go away after about 10-15 minutes of driving. It is best described as a whining/screeching/hissing belt or pulley noise, yet it SEEMS to be coming from the the transmission bell housing. Initial thought are the throw out bearing, but need help with diagnosis. Thanks for checking it out!
