Question about 1992 Jeep Wrangler

What is the speed limit for shifting into 4 high?

I am stationed in Alaska and have to deal with icy roads. I have a 92 Wrangler and would like to know if I can shift into 4 high while driving about 30mph?

    So it would be better to do it at higher speeds?

  • daniel_e_war Nov 12, 2009

    Ok, I see what you are saying. I was asking about putting the jeep into 4 wheel drive, while moving. I worded the question a little weird.

Yes you can, it will bogg your engine down alot, but you can shift at 30. If possible to wait until you reach 32 33 it would be a little better, but still possible.

    If you are going from second to fourth 33 mph should be all you get out of second gear, it is better to go to fourth at a higher speed when it comes to engine bogg but it can be done. What may be safer is to go into third at around 15-20 and fourth at 35. This would make it easier to keep traction on icy surfaces as long as you are doing a quick shift. The longer it takes to get from one gear to the next increases the possibility of wheel spin. If you are down shifting you want to stay in gear until you are at idle rpm before you down shift. This will also decrease the chance of slipping.

  • Matthew Boulden Nov 12, 2009

    Ok, Now I understand a bit better. If you have "shift on the fly" or push button 4wd it is normally ok to put it in 4wd at 30 or below. NOT over 30. If you have to shift it into 4wd with a lever, which includes putting the truck in neutral I would not do it unless you were under 5 mph or at a complete stop.

    Also with push button remember not to continue to rev the engine during the engagement process as this could hurt your transmission. I hope this is a little more helpful as I understand the question a little more.

2007 auto wrangler, went to put it in 4 wheel drive & the shifter moves freely & won't go into 4 wheel drive. This happened the 1st time I took it out, but there was resistance when I went to


why not RTM , read the manual

first what are you driving on, we DONT KNOW.

1: dirt. mud, grass rocks , clay, sand. off road?

2: ICE or solid snow?

3: or non iced pavement

PART time 4wd is for 1 or 2, and never 3

only AWD works on #3, or you WILL damage the drive line.

see stop driving...... here.

NO, the issues is with you.

they wont tell you the truth to be polite and take your wasted cash or time.

RTM

your car has NO CENTER DIFFERENTAL

wiki 4wd, and read, its all there, all versions, and all the rules.



I have and 08 wrangler and a Japanese jeep and have had 5 jeeps now.

not one is AWD. nada. and never pretend it is.

ever.

that is what the PART means,,,,,

you can use it part of the time and never on hard pavement.

(one guy said, i can do it going straight and i said, ever seen a road that dont turn, yeah)

2006 Jeep Wrangler. When I put it into four wheel drive, it is making a grinding noise. This happens on ice and if I gun it, I believe that I am only getting one wheel to spin up front, the driver's side....


Don't have your foot into the gas when shifting into 4 wheel. Best is to shift at a lower speed and "feel" the shifter as it goes in. Abandon the attempt if it grinds (picture parts doing really bad things to each other)
One general driving tip...Never do anything on ice. Shifting, steering, braking or anything else can throw you out of control on icy surfaces. Anticipate bad conditions and begin using 4x4 before you are in a situation where you need it.
Practice shifting your unit...though they are "supposed" to all work the same, every one I've ever driven had a certain amount of "quirks" that had to be learned.
About the one wheel spinning...most people don't realize that on most jeeps you have tow "open" differentials which means that at any one time only two wheels are driving you (except those with limited slip rear diff, in which case you have 3.)
Good luck with it

Jeep stuck in 4 wd and transfer case shifter moves about freely


SOUNDS LIKE THE SHIFT LINKAGE HAS BECOME LOOSE. THE GOOD NEWS IS, THE WARRANTY IS STILL IN EFFECT. PERHAPS A DEFECTIVE PART IS THE CAUSE? IT IS TOUGH TO SAY THE EXACT REASON WHY THIS HAPPENED WITHOUT LOOKING AT IT FIRST HAND. SORRY FOR YOUR INCONVENIENCE. HOPE THEY SOLVE THIS MYSTERY SOON SO YOU CAN GET BACK ON THE ROAD, AND OFF ROAD TOO.

Cant shift into first gear or reverse


You are likely correct...sounds like the synchro is shot or the shift fork is somewhat worn. Is fluid full?
As long as the clutch does not slip and is engaging and disengaging somewhere in the center to just below center of travel, it's OK.

4 Wheel High speed limit


The owners manual should state, but you should be safe at speeds up to 45. I have a Tahoe and have driven in slush and snow up to the speed limit on highway. 4 Low should be on off road terrain only, you can cause serious damage if you drive in 4 low on pavement.

5th. Gear


Sounds like you may have bent a shift fork or your cluster gear has some missing teeth on it now. I would venture to say that is it a bent shift fork. This will require the transmission be removed to gain access to inspect and repair.

1993 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Transfer Case


Sorry, but my solution would be to take that drive back to the dealership, if he has a warranty. This is a hands on type deal, you have to trace everthing with your hands. Now it sounds to me like it could be in the electronics. You have to go to the differential, find the vaccum lines, if equipped, some are not, then trace them back to the motor and make sure they aren't cracked or broken. I hope this solution was helpful, please rate. Thanks
