Clicking noise from clutch when I push down to shift gears
I have had a clicking noise for the last month everytime I push the clutch in to shift gears. This morning however, it was like I didn't have a clutch. Everything worked but being able to start my jeep. I looked through the book that came with my jeep and ended up putting a 10 amp in to over ride the safety feature. Do you have any idea what might be happening?
Re: clicking noise from clutch when I push down to shift...
There is a switch on the clutch linkage. you can see it if you look under the pedol it looks like a black cylinder that slides along the clutch shaft. when this breaks you can't start you Jeep.
Mine broke I had to wait 2 weeks for a replacement part.
oh yeah( it clicks when you press the clutch) so you know it is broken.

I would change the viscosity of the oil in the gear box first as if the oil is too heavy the syncro springs cannot handle a quick shift. next check the drain plug magnet for metal bits Lastly check that the clutch operation is spot on and that the clutch is fully disengaging to allow for the fast shift. May mean that you have to put your foot fully to the floor for your fast shifts and not as you see it in the movies. At this stage with you information if the box shifts well under normal conditions then I would tend to discount a faulty box
You may have what is called a syncronizer problem which is basically a transmission rip down and inspection, when the syncros go they create havoc inside the gear box making shifting extremely difficult in these gear ranges.
The other thing that also should be inspected at the same time the transmission is looked at is the clutch assembly, clutches should last long times depending on how each vehicle is driven, generally a clutch can be worn out in as little as 30,000 miles if it is pushed hard as oppossed to a car being babied and lasting 100,000 miles or more.
the clutch fluid being low means that there is a leak in the hydraulic system and that is why you cannot get the vehicle in gear. even if you refilled the resivour you still need to fix where the leak is coming from then manually bleed out any air in the system. air is compressable and liquid is not. if there is air in the system you are only compessing the air when you push the clutch down and it is not pushing the clutch. check the clutch master cylinder for leaks- its under the clutch fluid. also check the slave cylinder is bolted the the transmission.
the high pitch noise leads me to believe a problem with the hyudraulic clutch. Have you checked the level? also with manuals you dont have tranny fluid, you have gear oil; which is very unlikely that needs changing
This depends as dose it do it when cold or hot.
2nd when you push in pedal and put in gear dose it go in clean or hard to select 3rd can you hear a grinding noise when pushing in pedal and noise goes
when you take you foot off the clutch pedal IF so then its the thrust bearing on clutch REPLACE ALL .4th if you push in clutch pedal and select a gear and let the clutch out if drive right out (replace)
Jeep #1: Sounds like a shift linkage problem. Possibly synchro forks are sliding back and forth on shift rails and are out of adjustment. This is internal and cannot readily be fixed without trans removal as far as I know. Hydraulic clutch system is non-adjustable. A new clutch should last at least 70K so, unless it was installed improperly, it should be OK. Check hydraulics for leaks & bleed. Clutch should "catch" about two inches off floor (not too low or not too near top of travel) Jeep#2: Has a synchro or other internal gear problem... Symptoms are similar but gringing and clicking noises indicate worn or broken internal components! Good luck to both!
