When I press clutch half way in it makes rattling noise


Sounds like you are needing the throw-out bearing replaced. The part is inexpensive, but the trans needs to be removed to replace it.

Jeep 360 rattle sound at idle in park


it could be a wrist pin, and im not sure if those amc's had hydraulic lifters but sometimes with old lifters when the oil pressure is lower at an idle the lifters arnt filling up all the way so they develope a little valve lash, and when the rpms are raised the oil pressure raises and fills the lifters. you could try chasing the noise down with an automotive stethoscope.

I am having a problem with a rattle noise while


try U joints or check all you heat shielding on your exhaust it might be harmonic. My 96 300zx rattles alot when i give it some gas and it sounds like tranny but the trans seems to be smooth for the most part and the clutch is relatively new. also check your trans mount. i've seen bolts get loose and it wont knock but it will rattle.

Transfer case making roaring rattling sound


it's possible you might need to just change the trans case fluid.... it's a pretty simple task, i usually do all the small minor work first before i take it to a dealer to fix.... if they said you need a new trans case, but didn't tell you why, more than likely there might be something you could do yourself to make it better... those service men have been working around vehicles long enough, they should be able to tell you exactly what's wrong!
i would also do a tranny fluid change to... some of the noise could be coming from there too -- when you change either fluid, add a little lucas transmission fluid stabilizer, it helps alot with seals and makes the fluid stick to the gears better...

Transmission or transfer case noise


I have the same problem with my 94 explorer with a manual transmission, Just replaced the trans a month ago because of gear failure and now It's slipping out of gear when the engine isn't under load aka Coasting, was Told By a Really good Trans Guy that this is a failure in the Linkage in the transfer case am about to tear into mine tho It's way over my technical ability but will repost here after I get it torn apart with potential prices for worn parts for the do it yourselfer, And Has to be the issue I hope because the gears in the transmission are in pristine condition the other reason for suspecting the transfer case is that when my trans is slipping and making that weird Rattle Clatter sound coming from the trans if I put it in 4x4 low it drives great even tho the front wheels aren't pulling since I have the front drive shaft off at the moment,, Well Here goes Nothing Wish me luck on this teardown gonna need it..

Feels like transmission is slipping


IF THE REVERSE IS ALSO OUT THE PROBLEM IS INSIDE THE TRANS - SUNBEAM GEAR I THINK IT IS CALLED..
IF REVERSE WORKS - THE PROBLEM WITH YOUR TRANS
IS CALLED= THE SPRAGG OR SPRAG GEAR..
