manual transmission clutch

Asked by Sep 09, 2010 at 08:44 PM about the 2003 Jeep Liberty Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2003 jeep liberty sport has had the clutch replaced twice due to chatter. When the clutch is not pressed its a noticable chatter. Even with a new clutch (pressure plates, throw out bearings, disc etc.) the chatter still exists and its driving me crazy. 3 mechanics claim its just enginee noise, if it is engine noise why does it go away when I press on the clutch? Please respond if you think you know the answer.

Replace the flywheel as well, but only after the second clutch began chattering shortly after install. I guess the old flywheel could have damaged the new plate before i replaced the flywheel?
