Is the transfercase in nuetral ? check that as that is the only thing that could stop a manual trans from moving trk unless the output shaft in trans broke but that only you will know.

'89 Jeep Wrangler. Why won't it go into 3rd and 4th gear?


It is possible that the shift linkage has become loose and shifted but it is more likely that an intermediate gear or another component inside the transmission has become broken. This may require a transmission rebuild to correct.

My jeep wrangler 2008 - I shifted to reverse then to parking, when i release the breaks it kept going in reverse. So i turn off the engine. now it wont start the engine, neither the shifter will move


The shifter cable has broken more than likely ,Find the shift shaft on the transmission,,block the wheels and remove the shift cable from the shift shaft,put the gear shift in park,then shift the shift shaft in park,then it will start,Then of course you will have to replace the shift cable.

My jeep wont move in any gear


If your transmission is low on fluid it won't move the vehicle. Sounds like you had just enough fluid to get first gear going.

Wrangler will not go into gear when the jeep is off


if transmission was good when engine is off you should be able to go through the gears. can also be stuck in between gears which you can fix by replacing worn shifter.

Get the clutch slave cylinder and master cylinder looked at.One of the 2 has failed.If the pedal goes to the floor or is very loose,this is very likely the cause.Not an expensive fix.Hope this helps

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.

Stuck in 4 Wheel Drive Gear 1989 Jeep Wrangler was stuck in sand. Shifted to 4 wheel drive and now cannot switch back to AWD. Any suggestions?


Assume that is stuck in 4wd, cannot shift back to 2wd. Have you tried shifting to 4wd/Lo and back? Try letting out on the clutch while slowly rolling?

Assume you are manual transmission?

Transmission gets stuck in gear


Try adjusting your clutch as it is clearly not disengaging properly in second, you might also try adjusting your shift linkage.

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.
