Not a lot to go on here! But, Sounds like this has an auto trans? If it has, get a socket on the front crankshaft pulley nut, turn the engine just a bit back an forth. If you hear a metal to metal 'clunking', then remove the inspection cover at the front bottom of the trans. Now move the flywheel with a screwdriver, you will find that the flex-plate is loose or broken. If its a manual trans, None of this applies! Frankster016

Accelerated from a stop and heard a loud bang coming from rear of jeep and then it wouldn;t go anywhere i put it in reverse and then it moved forward i have a 1985 cj7


Distributor shifted on you and timing is out of phase. turn the distributor about 1/4 inch counter clockwise with your hands and test drive it . if it improves you have a busted bolt on the core (not uncommon for an old CJ) .. may need to tighten bolt or drill out a new thread and put a tight bolt in . When you are out of phase, it sounds like you have an exhaust problem , loud noise in exhaust and no compression nor acceleration , except in lower (high rev) gears. jorge diaz

How to replace headlamp on 1984 cj7



  • Hi I can help,

  • To change the headlight on a 1976 - 1986 cj7 headlight you can reference the diagram I put up as well for a visual.
  • Basically there is a bracket that has two screws on top and two below that when removed, release the light assembly.
  • From there you can access the bulb in the back by twisting it out and removing the connector.

Why the rear end tires on my 84 cj7 not spinning even when i put on reverse or first gear?


Is the rear driveshaft turning? If it is, likely you either have a broken axle or a blown gear set inside the differential. If it isn't, then there is a problem inside the transfer case.

Is the 1976 postal jeep reliable and automatic?


I would like to think so Mailmen work in all weather conditions. So hopefully it was a reliable jeep. The problam with it now would be that it would have high mileage since it is a mail man. Upside the United States Postal Service paid for the upkeep so it has been taken care of really good.

I hear a loud ratteling noise coming from where


The rattle is likely a loose shield or a bad catalytic converter. As for the loud banging, Have you checked the front U-joints behind the brake rotors. As for the Reverse noise? Auto or stick shift?

2001 Jeep grand cherokee motor knock 4.7 motor


First, if the noise is from the upper part of the engine and is more of a tapping than a knock, likely you have a problem in the valvetrain, most often a bad lifter or worn rocker arm. If the noise is low, deep inside, the noise is from a bearing. This is generally accompanied by lower than normal oil pressure. Regardless of the underlying cause, correcting the cause will not stop the knock. To do that correctly, the engine needs to be removed and all crankshaft bearings and the crankshaft itself need to be replaced (crank can sometimes be "undercut" and thicker bearing shells can be used depending upon the amount of wear.) If caught very early, sometimes only one bearing can be replaced in-car, but in 99% of all cases I have ever seen, most will fail again, sometimes more severely if done this way.

1984 CJ7 stuck in reverse. Staight 6, 5 speed and will not shift out of reverse.


you have a bent shift fork or shaft, you will need to remove the dust boot pull the shift snap ring it the shifter is in the floor and pull the shifter stick off then remove the transmisson top cover and replace the reverse first shift fork, this is the most common cause, if it has a columm shifter then disconnet the shifter lever and try shifting if it shifts then you have bent linkage and will need to figure out where it is located.

1984 Jeep CJ7, Gear shifting / Linkage problem


likely the shift rails are worn inside the trans. In changing shift, you have removed the wear on the end of the stick, but not the corresponding wear where the stick fits into. It will need to be taken apart to repair this. (would not hurt to have synchros replaced at the same time.) OR, replace transmission if you have an inexpensive one available.
