Re: Four wheel drive does engage.
Assuming that everything was working before you started, its most likely that you either forgot to plug something in, or messed up the transfer case linkage adjustment. If you have a front axle with a vacuum motor on it, are the hoses connected at both ends? Also, if you lost any fluid from transfer case or trans while you had them out, make sure you refill them (avoid future problems)
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

One of three things ether the pressure plate is bad are clutch plates worn out and last the throw out bearing is bad. Yes that is what it is called a throw out bearing because the only thing you can do with it is throw it away and replace it :-)
The pressure plate itself should always be powerful enough to return the throw-out bearing to the clutch engaged (ready to drive) position. Open the bleeder and remove all air. The slave cyl push rod should be able to be positioned in the cup on the throw-out lever with your hands. No tools. If it doesn't move freely something else is wrong.
Sounds like a throw out bearing going bad. This can be replaced without having to replace the clutch and pressure plate, however I would never reccomend it. Normally when you have a malfunctioning clutch component, you replace them all. The best solution here is to replace the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing and pilot bearing. You can usually get this as a kit. While you have the transmission down and the clutch removed, make sure to take the flywheel to a machine shop and have it resurfaced. Good luck! Any other questions let me know
What year? What make? What model? If your vehicle is high mileage, I would suspect, in the absence of any particulars to the contrary, your clutch is due for repair.
A clutch overhaul will include a rebuilt pressure plate, a rebuilt clutch plate, resurfacing of your fly wheel and a new throw-out bearing and possibly the rebuilding of your 'slave' cylinder if so equipped. To gain access to these parts, it will be necessary to drop the drive shaft, unbolt and move the transmission toward the rear on a rear wheel drive vehicle. For a front wheel drive car, it will be necessary to remove the engine. Expect to pay at least $500.00 in the North American market for this repair. Your mechanic may tell you differently.
The procedures I described are general in nature in an effort to answer your question. Since you omitted the make and the model of the car, it is difficult to provide any more detail in this response.
What engine? four wheel drive?
Remove rear drive shaft, transfer case if it is four wheel drive, and front drive shaft.
Get the kit to replace clutch disk, pressure plate and throw out bearing.
If the flywheel is worn, or grooved, replace it or get it turned at a machine shop.
more likely if the clutch is out and its squeals, more likely it will be throw out bearing which engage and dis engage on the pressure plate. the bearing is constantly spinning along with the pressure plate and the pad itself. any good mechanics can tell you what and were the squeal sound coming from by listening to it and sound and not cost you anything.
