Question about Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I have a 1994 jeep Wrangler 4 cylinder 5 speed. While driving it shifts fine but sometimes when I start it I can not get it in gear. Pumping the clutch does not help. I have to grind it into 3rd or reverse and then very quickly put it in second. Cannot get it in first. 99% of the time I cannot get it in reverse without it grinding. The engine speed is at a slow idle, the jeep is perfectly still and the clutch is to the floor. I was told it is probably the sycronizers and adjusted my trans oil accordly but this did not help. Then I got in my jeep, pushed the clutch all the way to the floor and the jeep, in first, slowly moved forward. I was on an incline but facing up hill and the jeep continued to roll very slowly forward which indicated to me the clutch was not fully disengaged. This does not happen all the time. The clutch is in the bell housing of the transmission so I cannot see it and the slave cylinder is just outside the bell housing. Not leaks and the reservoir is full. Now what?

1992 jeep wrangler 5 speed 4 cylinder shifts has


won't, not want , right?
the xfr case rear tail shaft is dead.
the 5speed box , must be in gear, is it, did you confirm it , by checking the 5speed, shifter bottom linkage that it really is in gear, did you try all 5 gears?
that be first , then see if the transfer case fails.
same way. same tests.

your post is a contradiction.
if the input to the xfr spins, the output must too, in 2wd mode. (both)
if not the xfr case has issues.
or simple linkage.

Check all your hydraulic connections for seepage . If you find nothing leaking, check where the rod goes into the master cylinder under the dashboard...If still nothing, I'd change the master cyl, as it is likely internally bypassing and permitting the clutch to release. PS it takesa a special "touch" to shift gears without using the clutch, if you cannot do that don't drive it Till you get it fixed...you will damage synchros and will need to have trans removed and rebuilt. $$$you don't want to spend!!!

95 Jeep wrangler wont go in gear


if this is something that started suddenly, it could be a leak in your master cylinder or slave cylinder, or your fluid could be low, or there could be air in the lines. Make sure it's full of fluid, and get back to me.

1998 jeep wrangler dont shift into 1st or reverse


I will bet it grinds when you try to engage first or reverse. When this happened on my car, I adjusted the clutch and it improved. You need about a half inch of free play when you first touch the pedal with your foot. If you have a slave cylinder, (hydraulic clutch). You may need to bleed the system. With air in the system, you can't get enough clutch to fully disengage the trans from the motor.(Clutch and pressure plate) It's like you only pushed down half way on the pedal. If it's not hydraulic, it should be adjusted with wrenches. If clutch is fine, It could be a loose shift linkage. It would seem extra sloppy when moving shifter, It would just not go in gear, with out the grinding.Hope this helps. lbreen

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.

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.
