Question about 1999 Jeep Wrangler
When driving shifting is ok as long as the jeep is roling but when i stop and try to shift into 1st or reverse its only if i shut of the motor that iam able to shift the gears ,the cluch seams ok .perhaps its the cluch plate or the sincrow gears ???? 5 speed manuel trans
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
