I would say your reverse gear is locking up on you and that you need to get it to a transmission shop before you break the gear off trying to back it up,,it will mess up the other gears

Jeep runs but will not change gears


automatic? trans, mines a 6speed, and has a clutch.
my guess is yes,
my A/T will not change gears,
all gears slip? (slip , flare or?)
or wont move at all. the car?????
or is stuck in1st gear in drive.?
or wont move in reverse. why not tell full story on so complex a device. super complex it is.
wont up shift , wont down shift
skips gears.
??????????????????

check fuses first.
then scan the PCM, it will tell you errors, called DTCs
use a real scan tool that can scan 2010 Jeeps. (factory codes !!!)
not some autozoned junk.

id bet there is a code, for sure.
even a broken shifter switch, or?

My jeep wont move in any gear


If your transmission is low on fluid it won't move the vehicle. Sounds like you had just enough fluid to get first gear going.

1998 jeep wrangler dont shift into 1st or reverse


I will bet it grinds when you try to engage first or reverse. When this happened on my car, I adjusted the clutch and it improved. You need about a half inch of free play when you first touch the pedal with your foot. If you have a slave cylinder, (hydraulic clutch). You may need to bleed the system. With air in the system, you can't get enough clutch to fully disengage the trans from the motor.(Clutch and pressure plate) It's like you only pushed down half way on the pedal. If it's not hydraulic, it should be adjusted with wrenches. If clutch is fine, It could be a loose shift linkage. It would seem extra sloppy when moving shifter, It would just not go in gear, with out the grinding.Hope this helps. lbreen

2004 Jeep Wrangler - Clunking Noise when shifting out of Park


It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

1991 jeep wrangler sahara shifting promblems


Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.

94' Jeep wrangler,6 cyl., clutch adj.


Check the cable operation with the vehicle off, wheels blocked, by having an assistant depress clutch pedal while under the vehicle. If everything appears to be functioning normally, then there may be an internal transmission problem. Does the Jeep hold itself if it is placed in gear, park brake off? Can it be moved while in this state? If it does hold, you may simply have a stretched cable, or a broken or damaged quadrant. The quadrant mounts to the firewall of the vehicle, just in front of the driver, under the dash. This is where the cable connects. Check this, and let me know if it does or doesn't help.

Can't transfer to 4L or neutral mode


Transfer cases can be quirky. I've got a 91 Wrangler, an 86 Cherokee and a 75 Blazer. When I go from 2WD to 4WD, they each have their own personality.

There are a number of things I've learned to persuade a stubborn xfer case to shift.

Try mixing these :
  • Engine running, vehicle not moving
  • Engine off, Shift Xfer case, Restart
  • Tranny in neutral
  • Shift Xfer case 'N', Tranny in gear, Tranny in neutral, Xfer case to 4HI or 4LOW (as long as you feel it register), Tranny in gear, try to move
  • Shift Tranny to Reverse, roll a few yards
  • Lock/Unlock the Hubs
To get back to 2WD:
  • Drive for a few feet in a straight line
  • Unlock the hubs
  • Tranny Neutral
  • Shift xfer case
Let me know how it turns out.
