A rattling noise from the transmission is never a normal condition no matter what anyone says, and the first thing to do is to check the transmission fluid level, but it sounds to me like the throw-out/release bearing is riding the clutch pressure plate, and when the clutch pedal is in the up position the throw-out/release bearing and the clutch pressure plate should not be touching each other, and the only time that they should make contact is to release the clutch disk in order to shift the transmission into gear. There should be about 1 to 2 inches of free play in the clutch pedal, and the clutch should start to grab within 1 to 2 inches of letting the clutch pedal up off of the floor, and if this is not the case you might need to have the clutch properly adjusted especially if the clutch does not start to grab until the clutch pedal is half way up from the floor. Also, the main bearing in the transmission could be going out due to low fluid, or a damaged pilot bearing that is allowing the transmission input shaft to wobble just enough to cause a rattle from the main bearing or even a vibration in the transmission.

I have a 97 jeep wrangler with I-4 manual trans. Rattle in trans at a stop with clutch in and out. at one time there was a whine also but now that is gone. I dont drive this much. only 52,000 miles on her....


Rember when you press the clutch in, the pressure plate releices the clutch disc and input shaft in the transmission. If you still have noise, It can only be either a broken spring on the pressure plate or the throw out berring. Neither can be serviced. There is a fill plug on the side, It takes ATF

I have a 2004 jeep wrangler with a manual trans rattle in nutral


It's not normal, it sounds like the throwout bearing may be making the noise. It's hard to say how long it will hold up. I've seen them make noise for a while. I would check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder.

1995 jeep wrangler, when shifting gears,having trouble going into gears.grinding bad.what could it be...


If the transmission oil is full and the clutch master cylinder is full, feels normal and does not slip going up steep grades, likely the gears in the transmission are worn (usually synchros). All items above contribute to proper shift engagement.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.
