    Sounds kinda like marbles? That is typical of the NV3550 transmission. You can quiet it down some using Pennzoil Syncromesh next time you change tranny fluid. I have read of people having good results with Royal Purple's equivalent tranny fluid as well. It won't go away but will be quieter.

      Throwout bearing, aka release bearing.

      But first try the Syncromesh that battalion14 recommend. It's cheaper, easier, and couldn't hurt even if it turns out to be the bearing. If he offered me advice, I'd take it.

        If your rattling noise just started and you did not have it earlier, I would check the cat. This is a common sound for a bad cat. With the exhust cool just tap on the cat with your fist and see if you recreated the sound. This only takes a second and does not cost anything... The repair of thr cat could be as cheap....

          Mine is making the same noise. It does it when the clutch is out and in neutral, goes away when you push clutch in. Someone said this is normal? I was planning on a new TO bearing, anyone else have this noise?

            Now see my clutch makes that noise but it does it all the time in any gear just as long as the clutch pedal isnt pushed in and i know mine is the throwout bearing.

              Sorry, mine does it also in gear while moving but only at very very low rpm's,as in right of idle, the it goes away. I just read a few stories on here about it blasting through the pressure plate and making a mess, just want to replace before that happens. For anyone who replaced a clutch by themselves, is it worth it to replace that while it's apart? Only have 55,000 miles, clutch seems to be strong other than that.

                transmission answer

                I had the same thing thought it was the t. o. bearing nope the bearing on the other end had flat spots on it. ended up rebuilding my transmission. Mine is a 2000 sahara with 52,000 miles good luck and don't just ignore it
