Hi, You assisted me before on the same vehicle. I installed my new transmission system and have been driving it for a couple of month now. The issue is a Vibration when I first release the clutch in 1st...


The last time I felt vibration in the pedal like that I had a broken clutch finger. I would hate to tell you to take it all out again only to find no broken fingers. I've also seen vibration from improper mating of the friction disc and flywheel. It'll wear on the inside of the flywheel before it wears on the outside and thus you feel that as a vibration. But, it is most likely the clutch plate isn't balanced right. Just to be sure, take a look at the harmonic balancer to make sure it is still one piece and the rubber isn't coming out. It can dampen out most vibrations like this but can only do so much. But, if it is compromised in some way, even small vibrations can get through. Also, did you install a new pilot bushing when you did the clutch? Fixya is discontinuing this service soon and they say they have plans to come up with something new. I'm not supposed to share contact information here per terms of service, but there is no reason you can't Google 'ZX2Fast' now is there? If you need more help and can't get to me from here, just Google me and I'm sure you can find some way of asking for help. Oh yeah, you should also inspect all of your engine and transmission mounts. You would feel vibration if you have a broken mount and the engine/transmission was resting against metal.

I was pulling a camper when my transmission was shifting from first to second at a high rpm. During the shift I heard a loud squeal and air blowing for a second and it sounded like it came from under the...


That hose is just a vent tube that allows air to escape as the transmission heats up and cools down.As for the vibration it is unlikely it is coming from transmission.If anything is damaged enough to vibrate it would not last two weeks must less two years.I would look closely at the fan clutch and see if you have some wobble there.The squeal could have been a belt and the air noise could have been the fan clutch locking up when it should have been free wheeling.Good luck.

Cherokee xj 98 skweeking noise under the middle center of jeep


All vehicles: squeak noise at center under car: likely a binding universal joint on either front or rear driveshaft. Also may give some body vibration at speed, often mistaken for out of balance tire. Stickshift cars: additionally noise can be from a bad clutch throwout bearing... generally also accompanied by vibration in clutch pedal when lightly depressed.
