Question about 1994 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

I have a 1994 jeep yj sahara model with a inline 6 4 litre with an automatic transmission. Whenever I shift into drive or any other gear including reverse it makes a rumbling noise and will hesitate to drive and the gears will slip especially going up hills. I was just wondering if that is a simple, cheap fix, instead of buying a brand new transmission?

No such thing as an easy or inexpensive fix when it comes to a transmission. Since the unit needs to come out and apart in order to do any internal repair, it's rather foolish to do anything except a complete rebuild. Don't forget...Unlike an engine that has many components on the outside, your transmission has virtually everything inside. Have a reputable trans shop do the work. They will check the transmission and the transfer case and make the necessary repair recommendations.

1994 jeep yj automatic wont shift into 3rd gear


Hey bro, pumps might be gummed up. Easiest thing I can suggest is go through all the gears manually to empty the pumps in the auto transmission. Then try it again. If no joy, then I'd change the transmission fluid and toss in some lucas oil transmission fix. Probably run you 40$ for the oil and lucas and take 30 min. It has saved my **** a few times and might just work. If it doesn't then you probably will need a new transmission, it is cheaper to replace it than to repair it in most cercumstances. Try the oil first, it's cheap and quick. Don't forget the lucas. And make sure to go through all the gears manually to empty the pumps. Cheers bro.

1994 jeep YJ Automatic transmission does not shift into 3rd all the time. This has happened several times now and seems to straighten itself out - not this time. It used to kick down at 40 mph. Replaced...


For your sake I hoping its a shift solenoid. Yes its in the valve body and there is some transmission surgery involved but its not that pricey. Otherwise it could be the shifter , manual shift valve, 3rd gear linkages etc. This is major tranny surgery. keep me posted.

94 jeep yj 4.0l starts in gear


It should have a safety interlock switch on the clutch to prevent it from cranking with the clutch not depressed. Do a search on the Internet for 94 jeep clutch pedal safety switch. If its an automatic it should have a switch on the transmission linkage to prevent starts out of park.

My 89 Jeep YJ manual will not go in to reverse while running


Problem is likely either a worn shift fork or bad synchro (both inside the transmission) It's unlikely that you have a clutch problem otherwise the problem would be with first and reverse and shifting other gears would also be difficult.

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.
