Help...transmission grenaded?

Well as the title says..
Pulling into my apt complex a few minutes ago i go to shift from first to second and bang pop pow.
The trans still works but has a bad clunk clunk clunk sound whenever the clutch is not depressed. As soon as i let the clutch out (in gear or neutral) i get a clunk clunk clunk that gets faster with rpms...

Any ideas?

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Yeah im hoping its just the clutch.
But the clutch seems to be working fine from the few feet I drove it after it started.
And AHAHAH on the free labor part.
Its an 07 I ran out of warranty about 40,000 miles ago

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Could be your pressure plate, I saw this happen, it was this tab on the pressure plate that was making a noise your describing. I wouldn't drive it until you figure it out cause it could be damaging your bellhousing and cause it to crack/chunk.

I'd find it hard to believe this would happen under the normal driving circumstances you describe though, but it's something to consider. Goodluck.

Just got back from having her towed to the dealer. Cost me all of 6 bucks, thanks to AAA.

Hopefully they will get it looked at tomorrow.

Damn! I swear the longer I own a JK, the more I realize how much it is made of POS parts...Seems like nothing is holding up. I love it for what it does, but a cracked pressure plate is unacceptable...

Yup.
Problem is I dont know anyone else in town that I trust.
These guys have done right by me before, but I'd still rather have someone else do it.

My guess is that you sucked silt up into the clutch from all your mud / water adventures, and the clutch has been gradually deteriating over time vs exploding like hitmoney's.

Pain heals, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.

That is what I think is going on as well.
Ill know sometime tomorrow

Worst part is this is going to completely erase the new tires fund

How exactly, I'm curious? Also you might consider contacting shops who do hemi conversions, they may be able to get you a used trans on the cheap. Goodluck

Thats exactly my plan.
They said they couldn't tell what happened exactly, too much carnage.
Apparently 4th gear was destroyed and the pieces of that pretty much screwed the rest of the trans.

Well ordered one from Elite Auto (who Burnsville sells theirs too)
Spoke to Dan at burnsville he said these guys are legit and they sell them cheaper than they could.

So i got one with 6 miles.
I also needed a new clutch and the one from Elite has the clutch with it with 6 miles on it.
Score

Looks like my total is going to be about 1000 in labor and 825 for the trans.

Should have bitten the bullet and just bought the new trans to begin with. They charged me 300 to tear down the old one to tell me its trash

NICE! $825 with the clutch? cant beat that....even without you cant beat that. When will it be at the dealer?

$1000 in labor is a DAMN RIPOFF!!!

Yeah you really cant beat it those guys are GREAT!

And yeah i got bent over at the dealer.
The thing is the guys there are really cool. They are actually helping me out.
Their manager said they have to charge 16 hours for the work, but they are only going to bill me for twelve.

Still pisses me off though. No way in hell it takes 12 hours to drop one trans and put in another.


Oh and Elite has 5 or 6 in stock at that price.
I got the one with the lowest miles, i think they have one with 123 on it if anyone needs one.

And Tim 2 business days shipping from MN to SC is DAMN FINE in my opinion.
I should be up and going saturday if they can get it done, but more likely monday.
