I just purchased a 1994 Jeep Wrangler SE two weeks ago. I had a used vehicle inspection completed and was told that everything was ok except I will need to replace the rear pinion shortly but it was not required immediately. Today while driving, I heard loud thuds and grinding in a very bad way. The only time it did not occur was when i was eccelerating. When I got home, I noticed there was tranny fluid all over the rear end but couldnt see any cracks or leaks. Any ideas?
Usually when a pinion bearing goes bad it will make a howling sound when your not on the gas. It could be that it went bad. If you think it's tranny fluid leaking check your fluid level it is dark red by the way and should not smell burnt if it does you have tranny problems. Gear oil is not red but dark brown.

No i would say ,,,this is a customisation and as such is not permitted under europeon legislation for road use ,The vehicle will not pass the annual mechanical inspection as the homoglonation details will not match with the manufactures original.Unless you feel the need for this work to be done then yes it could be done but you will need a one of certificate of homoglonation by a technical engineer ,cost at a rough guess ?? about 5000€

Sometimes the gas cap seal(o-ring)has a very small slight non-visible crack that can't be seen from the bottom side.The best thing to do would be to go to a dealer and purchase a gas cap for your vehicle, then replace it.Hope I could help.Get back to me with any questions.Thx
I had the same problem with my 2007 Sahara Unlimited. I'll make a long story as short as possible. For a number of years my son ran a Chrysler / Jeep dealership and I contacted him (I bought my Jeep from him before he got out of the business) and he told me this is a sporadic problem with the Wrangler line. To the point of calling him I had tried everything and nothing worked...insert key, turn, nothing...all electrical worked, lights, power windows, radio, etc, etc. He told me to disconnect the negative power connection on the battery for a second or two then re-attach. Insert key, engine starts, everything works as advertised.
Essentially, my son told me this "re-boots" the system. For whatever, and to his knowledge, never explained by Jeep, this fix works but no idea as to why it happens in the first place.
Hope this is of some help...though I suggest that there may be more "fixes" to this problem.
your jeep has a hydraulic clutch line linked from its own master cylinder to a slave cylinder. This is a better option than your standard shift linkage used on older vehicles. If your master cylinder goes you will have no pressure in your petal and thus no movement of your vehicle. A blown line or a released bleed valve could do that as well, but those failing are less likely.
my 99 jeep wrangler has the same problem when I had it looked at they told me its a chrysler problem and there is nothing wrong and there is a short under the dash I had them reset the warning light for an emissions test but the light came back on in a few days. It was not worth the expense to try and find the short
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.
