Question about 1993 Jeep Wrangler

2 Answers

Cannot get into any gear

93 Jeep Wrangler - starts fine, drives fine, until I come to a stop. I clutch to neutral then when it's time to get back into 1st gear it's like I'm locked out. Cannot shift into any gear whatsoever. If I try to move the gear shift to reverse I get a loud noise, and still nothing. After a few moments of attempting to shift, and turning the engine off things get back to normal. The next stop is fine to shift. It doesn't seem like there's any rhyme or reason to it.

Anyone have a solution? Thanks for the help.

    The clutch feels ok. At times the gear shifting is smooth, other times there seems to be a minor catch, but not enough to block the shift change.

    I think taking it to a shop is the best thing right now. Hopefully it won't break the bank.

    Thanks for your quick response.

    sounds like either the clutch disc is somehow hanging up on the input shaft (rare) or there is a bad shaft support bearing inside the transmission causing a misalignment of internal gears. Clutch feels OK ?
    Pretty much nothing external to do on these units...bring it to a shop before any more internal trans damage is done ((every time you get noise, gears are doing something they should not, causing damage)

Check make sure the clutch master cylinder working properly along with slave cylinder. both master and slave don't have to leak fluid to be faulty, the rubber seal inside the unit could be worned and when apply pressure the fluid blow by or seep between the rubber seal causing the the unit not to work properly giving you a weak feel and pressure at the pedal. both unit have to work properly in sync. if one are weak you will have the same issue. clutch should have a good tight feel not sloppy or weak. pressure plate will also play important role, weak pressure plate will also give you a weak pressure feedback from the foot pedal and also will cause the synchronizer in the transmission not to engage and work properly. check this basic item fist before messing with your tranny. clutch master and slave cyc are fairly cheap to fix and replace.

Did the clutch feel "normal" or "spongy" when this happened? Sounds like a clutch hydraulic problem. ck the fluid level, if its OK, replace the clutch master. if its low, find out if its leaking from the back of the clutch master or the slave cylinder. you may be money ahead to replace both. If there is no hydraulic problem could have a clutch disc problem.

No. The jeep moves when starting the engine as if the clutch isn't fully engaged, but only then. Sitting idle with the clutch depressed it is fine.
