Question about 2000 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Jeep Troubles I have a 2000 jeep wrangler sport, today I got into it after work and I couldn't put it in gear (manual trans.), when I press in the clutch it feels like it has pressure but I can not put it in any gear, it's like it won't go in gear. Any ideas what the problem might be?? Shawn

    I went out and started it this morning and it went in gear like nothing was ever wrong, so I drove around the block a few times (seemed to grind just a little going into 3 & 4 gear), I got home waited about 20 mins. started it back up and it won't go in any gear again. So this problem is happening off & on, think the trans. is going out???

Sounds like the clutch is failing before changing the clutch check the trans fluid for metal hunks or sliver fluid if that is present u might have an internal trans failure

2010 Jeep Wrangler unlimited sport extreme shudder at 40 mph- if I press the gas-pedal and get the RPMs to rev, the shudder ceases, only to return once I am back down around 38 mph-41mph.

which engine the 3.6? v6?
that shudder is called MISFIRE.
get a tune up yet, even $1.49 spark plugs?
no its not the trans,
if it dont slip, its not trans, (see RPM races? that is slip or too low gear)
if it shifting to the right gears, its not the trans can you count them?
is the CEL lamp glowing or flashing driving, is yes, that means
scan me now. in fact scanning while it shudders, is like (magic)
why start guessing, do a tuneup,
then scan it.
if its is misfire the PCM will tell you what cylinder misfires.

are your spark plugs 6 years old, if yes, why?
going for 200k miles on them.?

2000 jeep wrangler are sythetic lubes used in axils and trans

Hello grega1967, your Jeep Wrangler came from the factory with gear oil in the axles and manual transmission, but the transfer case uses transmission fluid. It is a NP231 and your axles are Dana 30 in the front and Dana 35 in the rear. They should have a 4.10 gear ratio due to you having a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.

I hope this helps,
