Squealing noise

I have a squealing noise while the Jeep is running. It is a slightly faint squeal kinda sounds like a loose belt......funny thing is, if I push in the clutch a tad bit, the noise goes away. I read the other threads about a noise while shifting but mine seems like just the opposite. Any ideas?

I'm experiencing the same thing...I can hear a little squeal when I'm in 2nd and 3rd, but it goes away by 4th. When the clutch is in I hear nothing.

There is a TSB for this problem, cant remember what the number is but I believe there is a thread on this site that explains.

I think it as something to do with the preload on the throw out bearing?

Good luck

There is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) for this issue caused by incorrect Preload on the Clutch Throw-Out Bearing. I just got mine back for this issue. Two days of driving a crappy neon rental.... worst two days of my life.... it smelled terrible!!

Awesome, this is spot on...I did the diagnostic test on the TSB, and it did it exactly as documented.

I'll get this taken care of when they put on my new tires and SS exhaust. Thanks for the tip!

Squeal in Automatic Transmission

I understand that this is a problem for manual transmissions, but my automatic has a squeal when I am under mild load in any gear. Itís barely noticable in 1st, but by the time itís in 4th, itís really loud. If I let off the accelerator, it goes away completely. If I accelerate quickly, there is no noise. Any ideas?

Could be a bad clutch fan, or pulley

I have the exact same noise in my automatic. I called a dealer and he said that he has heard of this before, but couldn't tell me exactly what it was. He said it could be the compressor, which he said was louder than he would like. Anyway, he said that if I wanted I could get it checked out when I brought it in for my next service (I have about 2300 miles on it).

I also get a slight rattling feeling in the gas pedal and steering wheel when I ride over bumpy spots in the road. Has anyone noticed that before?

After reading another post about their aftermarket cold air intake "squeals like a pig", I believe this problem is due to the 3.8L air intake. The noise may be present with the stock air filter, but is amplified by after market C.A.I.'s. There appears to be no solution to this problem. Maybe this discussion could be moved to thread "CAI squeals like a pig".
