It is possible that the shift linkage has become loose and shifted but it is more likely that an intermediate gear or another component inside the transmission has become broken. This may require a transmission rebuild to correct.

SOURCE: 1992 YJ can only shift into 3rd & 4th gear. No Reverse

The same thing happend to one of my wranglers, a 95 yj 4cyl 2.5 liter. The "Aisin AX-5" is the transmission that jeep used on the yj and tj 4cyl and 83 cherokee and up 4cyl, and the "Aisin AX-15"was used on some of the 6cyl models. Both are a "light duty" transmission according to the transmission manufacturer. As everyone knows, A jeep is no light duty vehicle, the shifting slider, a fork like item slides the gears back and forth over the drive and output gears to change the gears. and with heavy use or lack of maintanice they can break, they also can break cause of the cheap casting they used in the tranny. Other problems happen in those trannys too. The only thing is to tear the tranny apart and find out what failed and replace. I did this on the kitchen table ofer a day off. being the up own an early 90s yj, If you are one who doesn't work on their own car, I would find a good garage that is good with jeeps, they are not to expencive to fix, and when they are taken care of, will be a joy to own.
I hope this helps, Jeep ownership is a great thing.

SOURCE: 02 jeep liberty won't shift into 3rd or 4th gear.

Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

SOURCE: transmission won't shift to 2nd and 3rd gears goes from 1st to 4th.

Doesn't sound like a simple fix. I would suggest having it serviced.

get your codes first. as three things in your transmission can go wrong.the pressure sensor.the governor pressure sensor is failing.and your filter in the box very dirty and needing changed .so get the codes first cheaper.

I have a 89 jeep wrangler with a 2.5 engine and ax-5 trans. it is knocking in all gears but 4th.


may want to do an oil change/filter on trans-then neccisary ajustments from a repair manual--if still persist then rebuild may be in order--trans can last 250 thou miles but heat is the killer

probably not clutch unless you are missing details
clutch problems will allow the engine rpm to increase with a road speed increase but that is not what you imply
if you did the brakes your self , then take it to an accredited brake shop for a proper diagnosis

1988 wrangler goes foward but not in reverse. It won't engage in reverse. 1st, 3rd, 4th are great 2nd winding sound. what needs to be fixed or replaced?


it sounds like you have 2 bad gears, 2nd gear may be fine for an hour or for ten years, theres no telling on that. your reverse gear is probably shelled out. your best bet is to rebould your transmission or buy a new one, sorry
