Grinding noise.

2004 660, i just bought it. Twice now when giving it some gas from a dead stop there has been a loud grinding noise and a shutter type vibration. When this happens it does not move or barely moves. If i let off the gas and give it gas again it is fine. I have done some reading on here and it sounds like something in the clutch setup. Any thoughts? The two times this has happened it was in 2WD but may not have anything to do with it. So far it is an awesome machine.

Is your belt slipping?

It is pretty loud when it does it. Does not sound like a belt slipping sound to me.

I use 2 also get a gear grinding noise but it was caused by my rear differential. Is the nosie coming from the rear?

It really sounded like it came from under the engine cover. I tried to get it to do it again and couldn't.

When my rear axel would pop-out of the rear diff. it would make the griding noise. I wonder if its your front diff.? Have you checked it and does it have gear oil? Maybe your axel popped out and back in? Im tryin to think of options.

Probably your rear brakes, just spray them with WD40. lol it fixed my problem and I don't use the brake very often

It was in 2wd both times it happened. I guess I will ride it out and see if it happens again. I guess when it breaks I will know what is wrong.

they may sound strange, but have someone walk beside you and listen where it is coming from if you can.

It might be in the clutch, you can have stuff wear out. Maybe change the belt and look at the parts and see if something looks wrong? Or take it to a shop to get the belt changed as part of your maintenance and see if they find something wrong. But I wouldn't tell them ahead of time. Because then they will find something else wrong. my 2 cents
