Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Not catching 2nd gear

I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler 6cyl automatic and when I get started in my drive, the transmission doesn't catch 2nd gear right away, forcing the engine to rev up until it catches 2nd gear.

    I did it when the car wasn't turned on and it was pink, but I'll try it in park with it running.

    My transmission hesitates when shifting into 2 and 3rd gear, it has slowly progressed over the past month. The fluid is a beatiful ruby color and is full, yes it was checked after drivnig and in park. During shifting the engine reves as normal but I only coast either until it falls back into the previous gear usually 1st, or until the engine speed is high and the gear will catch and I can continue driving until the next gear shift. Shifting manually is no problem car works great but there is only 1 2 and D so shifting to third is always the hesitation. After driving for 15 minutes there is no longer any problems until tranny gets cold again. Im thinking of changing the fluid after it has been driven to wash out what feels like a sticky substance .

Check the level and condition of your tranny fluid.
Check the level with the car running, in park.
The fluid should be a pink or bright red color.

Why is my jeep hesitating, going up a hill or when flooring it to pass?


nice facts, all, but no engine size options stated.
after all it's an ENGINE question.
you dont know whats there, and doing DIY> really?

one fact missing, and is key
does WOT power CATCH up
that is you move right foot fast and it bogs, we get that but what happens after the bog> ? more bog or it catches up.
if it dont catch up;, on hills, maybe fuel pressure low.
see?
at WOT there is no 02 sensors. nor TPS (enrich)
at WOT only you , then engine sucking air like mad the MAF at max voltage and if fuel pressure is low the car has endless bog.
see?

wot, = wide open throttle, use a hill to test, flat is useless .
max fuel is at max HP (max torque + max RPM both same time)

i own an 08 wrangler, 3.8L stick.
i just sold my 02,. with 2.4L I4, it was a bogging engine day one out of factory its a gut less I4. (only tubo can fix it)
2.4 or 4.0 L.
ive own all of them 4 and 6cyl.

1st and 2nd gear won't catch in my manual 96


it is very likely this is being cuased by worn shift linkage and not the transmission itself, check the shift rods and bushings for being excessively loose, also any trans repair shop will do a test drive and give you a free diagnosis in hope of getting the work, things are tight right now. please rate this.

Transmission Slippage


You can have the clutch and the pressure plate checked. If it is an automatic tranny you may try to drain the fluid and have it replaced or have the solenoid cleaned out or checked. The solenoid controls the hydraulic pressure to the clutch

1999 jeep wrangler no reverse


i would say your reverse gear is locking up on you and that you need to get it to a transmission shop before you break the gear off trying to back it up,,it will mess up the other gears

Transmission or Clutch problem?


Jeep #1: Sounds like a shift linkage problem. Possibly synchro forks are sliding back and forth on shift rails and are out of adjustment. This is internal and cannot readily be fixed without trans removal as far as I know. Hydraulic clutch system is non-adjustable. A new clutch should last at least 70K so, unless it was installed improperly, it should be OK. Check hydraulics for leaks & bleed. Clutch should "catch" about two inches off floor (not too low or not too near top of travel)
Jeep#2: Has a synchro or other internal gear problem... Symptoms are similar but gringing and clicking noises indicate worn or broken internal components!
Good luck to both!
