There is something wrong with the clutch. Make sure that there is enough clutch fluid in it. For some reason the clutch isn't disengaging like it should, so you are grinding the gears in your transmission, making that awful noise. You want to get it looked at before you ruin your transmission by stripping the gears.

SOURCE: 98 jeep wrangler no heat

Try this disconnect the heater hoses from the heater core use a hose to backflush the core. Then reconnect and try again.

SOURCE: when in 4wd it makes a noise

Is the noise in the front or middle? If it's in the front, it is most probably a wheel hub or differential case bearing. First I would check (or replace) all the gear lube in the transfer case and both differentials.
If the sound is under the middle of the jeep, it's probably a front output bearing in the transfer case.

Is there a very short term solution? I just want to get the jeep from my Dad's house home and I don't want to have it towed. Once i have it at my place I can do the more extensive work.

Thanks

SOURCE: 1990 4.2 Jeep Wrangler that is overheating

Still sounds like a bad radiator...new or from scrapyard? If you can't add coolant faster than a really slow dribble that's a big clue.
You can run the engine with the heater on high and the engine should not air-lock. I'd also remove the thermostat just to make sure it is not defective. Run the engine without it and see if it still overheats. Last, it is possible that your head gasket has failed, and engine compression is causing the overheat. I tend to think not only because the hose stays soft.
While it's running, also make sure that the lower hose is not "sucking in" if it is, replace it. On 4.0 engines you can also get the serpentine belt on wrong and it will drive the pump backwards. if you replaced the belt check that too.

SOURCE: 4wd makes loud noise, also pops out of 4wd

Sounds "used and abused"!!! Likely you have more than one problem. Transfer case may need linkage adjustment or rebuild. Grinding from where? Wherever the noise is, look for a problem. Pulling can be from any number of front end component failures. Your best bet is to give everything a careful inspection or have a reliable shop go over it for you. There are so many variables in this I couldn't possibly give you any real answers!!!
good luck!

I was driving to work this morning and was in 3rd gear, went to down shift at a stop sign and its stuck in 3rd gear. 1988 jeep wrangler. It has been grinding the gear for a few weeks now everytime I change...


The 3rd Gear Synchro is worn or damaged, which is why it grinds when you try to upshift or downshift into 3rd gear. When it goes out completely you will have a very hard time shifting into 3rd gear, since the Synchro lines up the gears to make shifts smooth and easy.

It's not normal, it sounds like the throwout bearing may be making the noise. It's hard to say how long it will hold up. I've seen them make noise for a while. I would check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder.

it could be your brakes , on most brakes there is a wear tab that makes a high pitched squeeling noise when it contacts the rotor. this is in place to let you know your brakes are due for replacement. if it is not your brakes then it could be a wheel bearing.

Jeep Wrangler 1998 straight drive has difficult times going into reverse gear. I don't drive it every day,usually towing it behind my RV. It seems better when I drive it more,but is still difficult to...


if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem
