4 cyl 98 wrangler standard:
Looked to a few forums online. Talked to a few people. Still trying to get some ideas on what to look for.
I am get a shaking while trying to get going. It doesn’t only happen in 1st gear, the same will happen in second. The faster i let off the clutch, the faster the shaking goes away. When it starts shaking, its a very rough and noticeable shake. When i get going, the ride is pretty smooth but i can feel a tiny shake from below and the clutch pedal shakes a little as well.
So far, others have suggested bad motor mounts, bad transmission mounts, bad universals in the rear diff, dirt in the clutch, or dirt in the flywheel. The motor mounts are fine, the transmission mount looks good, all 4 bolts are on tight, rear universals look fine to me. I’m out in Bristol for college so pulling the transmission back to check the flywheel isn’t a choice right now… Any thoughts on what this could be???
Okay they are partially right on the bad issues. The u-joints would clank than rattle. As to inspecting the Transmission there is a inspection hole near the bottom of the transmission. I would suggest finding that and looking with a light at the fly wheel. You should be able to spin the tranny in neutral. Does your jeep hop to one side at a crawl speed? I would check for bubbles in your wheels also. A broken tire would cause a list of shakes and rattles.
I’ll check the transmission tomorrow. I can’t really move at crawl speed cause thats when its shaking bad and almost wants to stall. Theirs neutral and like 10 mph, anything between that cause shaking while in gear.
