Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler
All of a sudden while driving today, my 2000 Jeep Wrangler was very hard to shift into 2nd, and 4th. If you shoved it hard enough, you could get it to stick in gear. Then when I got home, I couldn't shift into reverse, either. When driving, it was very hard to shift and get it to 'stick'. When stopped, it is impossible. Any ideas? Thanks!
I had the same problem, funny as it sounds but go to jiffy lube, oil rig, or one of those places and have them flush ur trans and have good fluid put in...

trans needs a rebuild. the synchronizers are worn and sticking. It would be worth your time to drain the fluid and try some type of TRANS X or LUCAS for manual trans. Then test drive and see if it has loosened it up.

If you can see where the shifter goes through the floorboard, make sure the shifter is not hitting the floor.
There could be interfierence under the car also.

Take the air inlet hose off where it enters the throttle body and take a look at the throttle plates. It is likely that they’re dirty and have a build-up of carbon deposits. That is the most common cause for stalling that we see in the shop for your vehicle. Sometimes all it takes is a good cleaning to cure the stalling problem. There is an idle speed setting on your Jeep, but to check and/or perform this service step requires the use of a computer scan tool for your vehicle. If the cleaning doesn’t help ask a repair facility to check and reset, if needed, the minimum idle speed on your Jeep.

The same thing happend to one of my wranglers, a 95 yj 4cyl 2.5 liter. The "Aisin AX-5" is the transmission that jeep used on the yj and tj 4cyl and 83 cherokee and up 4cyl, and the "Aisin AX-15"was used on some of the 6cyl models. Both are a "light duty" transmission according to the transmission manufacturer. As everyone knows, A jeep is no light duty vehicle, the shifting slider, a fork like item slides the gears back and forth over the drive and output gears to change the gears. and with heavy use or lack of maintanice they can break, they also can break cause of the cheap casting they used in the tranny. Other problems happen in those trannys too. The only thing is to tear the tranny apart and find out what failed and replace. I did this on the kitchen table ofer a day off. being the up own an early 90s yj, If you are one who doesn't work on their own car, I would find a good garage that is good with jeeps, they are not to expencive to fix, and when they are taken care of, will be a joy to own.
I hope this helps, Jeep ownership is a great thing.
