    Shuttering in First

    If anyone has any insight....
    My Jeep is making an awful "shuttering" noise when I start driving in 1st. I'm not sure what the problem might be....maybe my universal joints? After the shuttering is gone (after the gear is engaged) the jeep drives fine. Shifting is smooth...i'm no mechanic, however I have access to my brothers gagrage, and if anyone has had the same problem, I believe I can replace the Universals myself...if it's the transmission....well, thats a different story...Let me know what you think....

    I think that that is clutch/flywheel related.

    Worn pilot bearring on the flywheel??

    Mine is worn and shutters a little. It also makes a bit of a rattling sound during acceleration.

    water in the clutch will do that also.
    is the clutch slipping in any gear?
    it kinda sounds like the clutch is starting to go.

    X2 on the tranny mount... I owuld check it first... I had similar issues that were repaired with the replacement of the mount.

    you will have to remove the Skid plate to check it. if it shows any sign of being torn replace it.

    I'd say fly wheel and pressure plate. The fly wheel may have to be resurfaced or replaced, could be cracked.

    ^x2.
    My previous TJ did it. I just figured all the mud and water glazed the hot surfaces. Other than a shudder taking off from a stop, it was fine.
    You may notice in 4hi it shudders more.

    does it do it all the time or just until it warms up?
    More often in damp weather, and if it has been sitting overnight?

    I have the same problem and was told it might be caused by moisture or condensation.
    Seemed like a reasonable answer as it does seem to be worse when it is damp and has been sitting at least overnight or longer. It is non-existent (or at least mostly non-existent) in drier weather and after it has warmed up or has already been driven that day, and the clutch otherwise works perfectly.

    It seems to be intermittant. It ran fine yesterday. I couldn't see a problem with the tranny mount. I'm thinking I'll need a new clutch and fly. I can hear a little bit of a noise with the clutch half depressed. Has to happen at Christmas time eh? New Clutch for me in the New Year....Thank You so much for your replys!!!!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!!!!!!
