In a shop, with the proper equipment, a decent tech can usually get the unit out in a little over an hour. On the ground, using hand tools and balancing the unit on an average floor jack, the same tech would likely get it out in about 3-4 hrs. A person with no experience, you can triple those times. Chances are that you will encounter far more difficulty in replacing it...it must be properly aligned and the converter needs to stay engaged with the pump. How difficult the job is largely depends on the location you do the work at, the kind of tools you have available as well as your experience and problem solving ability. If you are lacking in any of the necessary items, I suggest you have a pro do it for you or you can cause more problems than you will solve.

Position key cylinder into steering column as it would normally be in the ON position. 3. Press key cylinder into column until it snaps into position. 4. Check mechanical operation of switch. Automatic Transmission: Be sure transmission lever is locked in PARK position after key removal. If key is difficult to rotate or is difficult to remove, the shift lever-to-steering column cable may be out of adjustment or defective. If key can be removed, release lever mechanism may be defective. Release lever mechanism is not serviced separately. If repair is necessary, the steering column must be replaced. 5. Connect negative cable to battery. 6. Check electrical operation of switch. ab7076e7-9719-44a3-b66a-8584c6b2a3c1.jpg bfaa43e6-23a3-4771-9d95-55c2c3bf0a78.jpg

Is it an automatic transmission?
Have you try to start the Wrangler in Neutral.
On automatic transmission there is a neural safety switch.
When it's not send the correct gate position signal (P R N D... ) to the ECU not energize import relay like ASD.
Check for loose linkage to the transmission. + lube linkage with white Lithium grease spray.
Check for loose wiring to the neutral safety switch.

Instructions for replacing 1997 Jeep Wrangler 6cyl


Its an easy job! Disconnect the battery first! That's very importand! Then disconnect the wiring pack from the ECU. Some models are equipt with snap-systems, other with a screw-system to remove the wiring connector from the ECU. If done, there are three or four screws that hold the ECU in place with the body. Remove the screws and you hold the ECU in your hands. To buy a new or rebuilt ECU, reffer to the numbers shown on the label at your Wranglers ECU in combination with the V.I.N. To connect the new ECU with the wiring pack, be careful with the connector! You need to put him in the right position to connect with the ECU. Do it slow and make sure the connector fits to all points. Otherwise you'll bake some contacts inside the connector.

Oil pan removal on a 97 jeep wrangler


Instructions can be found in any basic manual but the simple version is to remove anything obvious that will be in your way (starter, trans lines etc). Disconnect both engine mounts and raise engine to get better clearance (watch stuff on top so you don't break anything) I usually stuff a couple of 2x4 wood blocks between engine & mounts to support it. Remove all pan bolts and take it down (remember pump pickup will interfere) Do what you need to do, then reverse process.

Winding noise in gear 1 ,automatic 1998 40l jeep wrangler


Your post is extremely difficult to understand...If I am reading it correctly, you have an internal whining noise from your automatic transmission. If so, the unit will need to be rebuilt. Likely the problem will continue to worsen 'till eventually it stops working.
Similar noise can also come from inside your transfer case. I'd check fluid levels in both before doing anything further, and get a second opinion before jumping right into any repair work.

if this is a 5 speed manual transmission...all you need to do before putting your jeep into reverese is puting it into first gear and then shifting it to reverse to avoid any grinding or problems shifting into reverse...this isn't a problem just a poor jeep design by not installing an extra gear to eliminate this grinding or shifting problem
