    Have you thought the transfer case may be the issue?

    I love old jeeps, but unfortunately I am mechanically challenged. I will look into the transfer case. Is that a relatively easy$$$ fix?

Grinding/rubbing noise after transmission bearing repair. made a popping noise while driving at normal speed. starting making banging noise. gets louder the faster you go. changes gears fine though.


an educated guess would be that the flex plate isn't on correctly , id get it back to repair place , if flex plate is it and it falls off or breaks then input shaft will break as well !!

You must have a manual transmission. Rebuild it. synchronizers are bad. The reason for grinding. Then you have worn shift forks. Reason for popping out of gear. Also replace any worn bearings or just get the bearing kit and replace them all, with the races.

check your half-shafts going from the transaxle to the wheel hubs. I suspect that one of them has broken off.

It sounds like you may have a broken drive drum or planetary gear set inside the transmision. I believe you have a 4L60E transmission in this vehicle and I've seen several failures similar to this which require the transmission to be removed and repaired. It's always worth a good look at everything on the outside first just to be sure but I think you probably have an internal mechanical failure of some type

Transmission made a loud pop then quit moving in drive. Truck still moves in reverse


An automatic transmission consists of a series of bands (gears) which is each gear within the transmission. You state that truck will move in reverse, but not in drive. The loud pop you heard was the forward gear band breaking. From this point you have two options...either have the transmission rebuilt or replaced.

It sounds like the hyd. clutch is not working. If the clutch won't release then you can't get the transmission in a gear while it is running, without that grinding noise.

1st, 3rd and 5th Gears all pop out of place + Whining noise


hi my name is nathan .......now...... what it sounds like is #1 (I have to hold it in place til I get to second gear) that can be that your shift linkage is worn or out of adjustment,pilot bushing is Badly worn,shift fork,lever and or shaft is bent or worn,or your bell housing is misaligned or just loose...i have a few more ideas on why it is jumping out but those are the main ones now about your whining gear noise#2( The whining sound starts low pitched in each gear then gets higher pitched as the rev's increase) you may have worn gears maybe or it could be just that your transmission lubricant is incorrect or inadequate.
