Slave cylinder problem. Air in the system.
if the TOB fails, you will usually hear a loud grinding or squealing when you depress the clutch pedal. Eventual failure will destroy the clutch pressure plate, and clutch disk, and could possibly damage the throwout bearing lever, which could punch a hole in your bell-housing, or damage your flywheel.
If the noise is only happening when the clutch is engaged (pedal out), it's not the throw out bearing. You'd only hear the noise when you push on the pedal. This is because the only time the throw out bearing is being used is when you are pushing the pedal down. It won't contact the clutch fingers any other time, and therefor cannot make noise with the ...
First of All , To wear down a modern Clutch plate before its end of life you got to do a lot more than what you have mentioned above. Driving styles vary from person to person but the way you have mentioned is the style of a typical beginner, Once you are experienced enough with the manual tranny it will become second nature and you will do "ALL AT ONCE" ...
The only thing which I can think of which might be making any noise is the clutch itself. When you get to 5th gear, which I believe is an overdrive gear in the Ranger, you are applying a lot more torque at the clutch. If it wasn't bedded correctly, it could be slipping in this higher gear, thus causing the noise you describe.
Possible Cause A possible cause is clutch adjustment. If the clutch is dragging you can experience these symptoms. Solution I believe you have a hydraulic clutch. If your brake fluid reservoir is low and a little bit of air got into the system you would need to bleed the air out in order for the clutch to become completely disengaged from the engine ...
There is one other thing that can cause what you are describing. There is either a pilot bearing or a pilot bushing that supports the input shaft of the transmission. I don't know which, but if it is a bushing, it would make sense based on your description. If the borrowers slipped the clutch quite a bit and were in a position to use the clutch a lot, ...
Is it possible to bleed the clutch hydraulics? (I don't remember if the Jeep has that option off the top of my head.) If so, this is where I'd look first. If not, I believe you need to replace them. It seems as though the clutch is not quite letting go when you depress the pedal. The five seconds gives it enough time to spin down. The fact that you can drive ...
