A stick shift.
ok ill do stick shift 101..... (repaired many a box i have)
first off it can be 3 things, the stick bad. the box and the clutch.
so can you shift all gears , engine off, and parked.?
Q1: yes/no.?
if yes, can you shift to 2nd gear, parked & engine off
and then start engine and move in second gear using the clutch pedal.?
ill stop here, as most get lost , if i post the full diagnosis..... end.
we can go way beyond this. easy.

    if stuck , key off, the shift forks are jammed, or if box run dry or with 200009 mile tar like lub, the forks can i fact weld to the gear dogs.

    the shift rails also, has crude logic, in that it prevents 2 gears at once, but using these dentent ball locks, sometimes they can messup and lock up a gear. all this is easy fix , (not run dry box ) just rails.

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.

I had the same problem, but in first gear. What I did to free it up, with the shifter out of the transmission, looking down into the hole you will see two linkages side by side with a slot in each. The trouble is the linkage got out of sink. What you do is put a large screw driver into (shifter lever) slot and try to move them (they are hard to move) to you find neutral.

If your clutch is operating properly, the problem is inside the transmission, either shift forks or lost adjustment on rails. You may have damaged the brass synchro gears by not taking care of this right away. First though, make sure the clutch is releasing, check for internal bypassing ,leaks and slave cylinder operating properly (some slaves are part of throwout bearing and cannot be serviced unless trans is removed)

What kind of fluid does a 5 speed transmission take in a 1994 jeep wrangler


Transmission (standard):
- 80 weight gear oil but most recomend Redline MT 90 to protect the interals better. 75W90 is listed by some but the 80W is just cheaper to find with no ill effects.
AX-5 = 3.3 quarts
AX-15 = 3.25 quarts
BA-10/5 = 2.45 quarts

95 jeep wrangler stuck in gear


Here are a few things that need to be check out to solve your issue. Check to make sure that your clutch is completely disengaging. You could have loose or damaged shift links. Transmission oil is low or you have none.( Manual transmission use DOT3 brake fluid for lube). Check to make sure there isn't any water or debris in the transmission fluid.Check the striking rod for damage. Gear is sticking or jammed.

My 87 jeep wrangler shifts fine when not running. will not manually shift into gear when running?


sounds like your clutch is not disengaging. when you press on the clutch pedal you should feel the resistance of the clutch pressure plate. There is a pilot bearing in the flywheel when it goes bad it continues to turn the transmission mainshaft not allowing your gears to line up for a shift, but you have noticed a bad noise if this were the cause. Or your clutch hydraulics have gone out. check your fluid level. if low you may have sucked some air into your system. you will have to bleed the lines as you would for car brakes. The other possibilities are bad clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder,

My 1987 jeep wrangler wont shift into gear...i have replaced the clutch master cyclinder or it may be called the slave cylinder whichever is located near the transmission...what do i do next?


If you have replaced the slave unit, and bled the system, then I'd replace the master cylinder on the firewall and bleed it again.
It seems though that you are a bit week on the diagnostics end...A slave unit is bad only if it is leaking fluid or frozen from non use. A bad master, can either leak externally (usually visible where the rod goes into it on the passenger side of the firewall) or internally bypass causing the slave not to move. The line between them cannot be leaking either or nothing will work. If everything appears to be working but the clutch will not disengage it is possible that the clutch itself is bad.

Wrangler will not go into gear when the jeep is off


if transmission was good when engine is off you should be able to go through the gears. can also be stuck in between gears which you can fix by replacing worn shifter.

Stuck in 4 Wheel Drive Gear 1989 Jeep Wrangler was stuck in sand. Shifted to 4 wheel drive and now cannot switch back to AWD. Any suggestions?


Assume that is stuck in 4wd, cannot shift back to 2wd. Have you tried shifting to 4wd/Lo and back? Try letting out on the clutch while slowly rolling?

Assume you are manual transmission?

Speedometer stopped working


most likely a broken cable if you slip under the jeep and find where the cable screws into the transmission you can unscrew it and spin it with your finger the speedo should move up if not the cable is broken, replacement can be had at your local dealer
