You might have a worn out clutch release bearing, that would be the common cause of the noise you describe. To replace that you must remove the transmission assembly, so if that is the problem reface the flywheel and replace the clutch assembly as well.
If it is an automatic transmission, it has internal failure and must be rebuilt or replaced. If it is a manual transmission, you need to do a clutch job. The clutch disc has worn out. You need to pull off the transmission to get to the clutch disc and clutch pressure plate, which is bolted to the engine flywheel.
First the clutch is shot. Replace it with a kit, also have the flywheel turned or replace it. By some chance if you have a hydraulic master and slave. The throw out could be stuck open. This would cause your problem. Find your parts. Before buying anything remove the transmission and see what is going on in there. It is possible that the input shaft is broken.
This is a big job and you will need a manual for guidance. Basically remove the gear box ( auto or manual) remove the clutch assembly or flex plate . Remove the flywheel. Use a seal remover tool or drill a small hole in the seal and inset a self tapper screw and lever out the seal. Replace with a new seal taking care to install with out damaging the seal. Replace all the removed items. As I said a big job and will take about 8 hours for a novice.
You need some very specialized tools to do that You'll need a jack to hold the transfer case once you remove all the bolts holding it to the transmission. Remove the drive shafts.Then you'll need to remove the transmission, again with a supporting jack. Once that has been accomplished , remove the bolts holding the clutch to the flywheel. I'd replace the pilot bearing in the flywheel that holds the input shaft to the gearbox before proceeding. There are special tools available to do that. Now assemble the clutch disk and the clutch plate and put the bolts back in without tightening them. Now take the clutch alignment tool and push it thru the clutch disk and into the new pilot bearing. position it so the clutch disk is dead center in the clutch plate and then finish tightening the bolts Put a new throw out bearing on the clutch release lever and reinstall the transmission and transfer case. Reinstall the drive shafts and replace any gear oil that may have spilled out of the transmission or transfer case. Adjust the clutch pedal clearance to spec and you're done.
I guess my first question is - how do you know the clutch is working ? You have a hydraulic clutch much like the brake system so you would need to know that the clutch disc is making contact with the flywheel. Its possible the main shaft in the transmission broke, or something in the differential that transfers power to the axles. Can you tell if the transmission gears are turning by shifting thru the gears ?
have you replaced your fly wheel and release bearing when you changed your clutch disc?
if yes, then replace your transmission fluid.
also, if you know hot to adjust your clutch release, adjust it. adjust it in a way that you need to draw back your clutch pedal a little higher for the clutch to complete engage.
here are some ways to adjust your clutch.
1. for clutch using clutch cable. open your hood, locate for the transmision, and there you can see a cable that connects the transmision and the clutch pedal. loosen in up a little.
2. for hydrovac clutch with self correcting features. just pull your clutch pedal away from the floor for a few seconds and its done.
3. for hyrovac without self correction. manually adjust the push rod (metal rod that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch master)
indicates you have installed the clutch plate incorrectly the raised hub section is hitting on the flywheel bolts instead of facing back into the pressure plate opening only fix is box back out and turn the plate around
The thing with the teeth you are referring to is your flywheel. That is what your clutch engages with to transfer power from engine to transmission. Your clutch is the disc & spring assy, and yes it could be on it's way out by sound of it. How much free play do you have at clutch pedal?
