Another question?

ok now i have a new one.

sounds like the transmission is making some strange noises......

in idle i hear a faint rolling noise and it goes away when i press the clutch in.

while driving it makes a little noise and when on the gas it will even make a chirping noise every few moments.....

this happens is 1s2, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th but NOT in 4th........4th gear is perfect.....no noise, nothing........

everything FEELS fine.....no vibration nothing.....

any thoughts on this?

thanks

Is that a it's definetly a throw out bearing or a maybe it's the throw out bearing?

What does this mean? Total rebuild? Fixable?
Should I stop driving the truck?

Thanks

You sure about that? I thought the "hum" or "whistle" could be the throw out bearing on its way out. My started as a whistle when I'd press the clutch, but has progressed to a bit of a hum all the time. I'm pretty sure mine is the throw out bearing on its way out too. Or you think not?

I really have no idea. When I push in the clutch the noise definetly goes away.
I also read some land rover service thing online and it said if there was an issue with the lays haft? It would be present in 1,2,3 and 5th.... With little to no noise in 4th..... Has anyone heard anything like this before?

That was just my guess I have not seen it in person so no way to tell for sure.

Jeff,

In my experience the pressure applied to the throw out bearing causes the noise to change or go away. The noise can present differently.

Not that bad to replace fwiw

No need to drop it, you can just pull it back far enough to install the new bearing. Less stuff to disconnect that way

I found in mine that the bearing was going bad and it made a noise only when the clutch was not depressed. I can verify that it was definitely throw out bearing as I removed everything and the bearing was melted!

To the point of not having to pull the trans, this would be tough as you would have to pull back far enough to get the throw out bearing off the input shaft...seems like at that point the transmission would be easier to just put on the floor rather than messing with supporting it while working. Plus, to me, it is worth making sure the clutch is in good shape.

My R380 has done that since I got the truck 2-3 years ago. It hasn't gotten better or worse. Recently I read (here, I think) something about why it makes the noise and that it's nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, the only thing I remember about it is the don't worry part.
