Question about 1989 Jeep Wrangler
I bought an 89 wrangler when I tried to disenguage 4wd the jeep would not go into any gear it was like the 4wd system was in neutral. what i need to know is could i need a new seal for the shifter or a new transfer case .What can i look for to determine whats needed thanks guys for helping me out . When the 4wd was working i would hear click when it would first go in. I was able to finally get in gear by pushing the jeep forward its seems like something is not lined up correctly,.
Sounds a lot like a linkage adjustment problem. Check transfer case linkage and adjust as necessary to get proper engagement. If you can't move lever on case, there may be an internal problem, but I've found that a good percentage of problems are with the linkage itself.
Check this out before getting too worried about unit. Also... make sure lube in case is in good condition and properly filled.
