    OK, I get that but you did not answer what I asked...

    What's a firechicken doing in the jeep section??? Aside from that, How does the clutch feel? Is it catching really low or abnormally high?
    Can you shift gears with the engine off? Were there any unusual noises or other symptoms before this problem?

Ok, Clutch engagement point should be midway or just before midway in relation to total travel.(pretty much the same in any clutch vehicle) assuming that if put in lets say 1st gear, with clutch in,then engine started, when clutch is released, car does not move but there are no unusual noises (grinding from inside trans.) If this is the case, I'd first check linkage for adjustment. If OK, remove the trans and look inside for broken gears, excessive metal debris etc.If shift rails are internal it could be that shift forks are sliding on rails and failing to engage synchros.

Sounds like you have a defectine cluthch componant. Best way to verify is get the rear axle off the ground . So as not to let the rear drive wheels make contact with the ground. Have an assistant start the truck and put it in gear. After making sure the vehicle is secure crawl under the vehicle and listen to comfirm that the noise is coming from the clutch area.

5 speed manual 91 4x4 gear noise in 1,2,3and 5th gear, 4th gear no noise.


do get like a clunking sound shifting between first an reverse as you let the clutch out?.if so its probably a universal joint either the one up by the tranny or the one by the rear axle.

96 lt-1, 4L60. 3rd and 4th gears went out. tried solenoids, no help. figured clutch pkg, replaced tranny. worked for about 10 miles, no 3rd or 4th again. replaced pcm, no help. what is it?


Could be the Igniton switch, but that would make it where it would only have 3rd gear. Do you think maybe it's not using 1 &2 and you are feeling 3rd thinking it is a lower gear.
If the swich isn't giving power to the transmission then that may be your problem

The clutch IS your tranny in a manual car. Sounds like a rebuild is in order. At least a pressure plate and throwout bearing.
