Customer Question

I have a 07 Jeep Wrangler. It makes a swishing noise when I depress the clutch pedal and it goes away once the vehicle warms up. Any ideas?
JA: Has the clutch been slipping? Are you having any trouble shifting?
Customer: No slipping or issues shifting
JA: Are you fixing your Wrangler yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm planning to and just initially began doing the research online
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no, nothing that I can think of

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. This sounds a lot like a dryness issue. If you have some, or can get some, get a can of spray silicone lubricant. Locate the rod where the clutch pedal goes thru the firewall and spray the rod liberally with the silicone spray, then work the pedal in and out. This should take care of the problem.

I'll give that a go but I'm a bit skeptical only because it sounds louder outside the vehicle than inside and sounds a bit like a the system is releasing pressure almost like a blow off valve in a turbo charged vehicle (which this one is obviously not).

If that does not do the job than you have a faulty throw-out bearing.

Expert:  Jeep Service replied 9 months ago.

The throw out bearing is only active when the clutch is depressed. It is common for them to be noisy cold, and then be less noisy when warmed up. You may need to have the trans removed and the throw out bearing replaced. Without hearing the noise, it is hard to pinpoint the issue, but, one of the other is your issue.
