When i shift to 2nd gear and let off it shifts back on its own

Put the rear derailleur into second gear and stop the bike before it shifts back down. Look carefully at the derailleur and you will see two small screws next to each other. These are stop screws. The stop screw for high gear may be out of adjustment, or the front derailleur is out of alignment putting sideways torsion on the chain forcing the chain to drop back into first gear.

The front suspension is messed up and i dont know how to deal with it? right now its said to be in first gear but the chain is in 2nd and once i change it to 2nd gear the chain ends up being on the 3rd...

I think you might be confusing some terminology.

The Front "suspension" is the fork assembly that holds your front wheel and goes up and down. The shock absorber or suspension.

The part in the middle of the bike that the chain changes between 1,2 and 3 gears is the crankset and relates to the front shifting. The shiftlever on the left of the handlebars would be the part that indicates the 1, 2 or 3 numbers.

To get the front derailleur (changer) to shift into the proper gears the cable must be under the correct tension and limit stops adjusted correctly. Shift the lever into the #1 position and check the cable tension. is it very loose? can you wiggle it easily side to side or up and down? if yes, then you need to tighten the cable by loosening the bolt at cables attachment of the derailleur and then pulling out the slack, tighten the bolt again and check your shifting . If that does not work then take the bike into a bike shop and have them look at it, something too difficult to explain may be happening.

Chain is slipping and jumping gears

okay lets ask why it broke did it get jammed?was it worn?is your front crankset or rear gearset loose with play in it?does the chain make a clicking while pedalling hard? first and last require a replacement chain because it broke for a reason.if your drive gears are loose then you will have to adjust/repair them also checking adjustment on the derailuers should be checked.
hope this helps

Mongoose tactic mountain bike / loose crank on chain side. How to tighten.Chain ring moves with it. Makes clicking noise.

The crank has to be removed to tighten the nut that holds the gear on. I assume that is your problem is with the chain gear on the sproket that is loose

I have a moutian bike an the gears want change the back gears are slipping so i cant ride

Try this: shift into the highest gear and release the derailleur cable at the derailleur. Pull it taut and retighten the pinch bolt. Give it a thorough washing and degreasing, too. A clean drivetrain is a happy drivetrain. Remember to use bike chain oil, not anything else, on the chain and ONLY on the chain.

No hi gears making jumped chain noise/ 90 somethin wrangler 5 spd

If the chain in the transfer case broke, they don't fall off, you would know. It would make the noise all the time. The noise your hearing is most likley from the transmission. If you have the 2.5L engine you have an ax5 transmission, the 4.0L came with an ax15. Both transmissions work basicly the same. Gears 1-2 share a shift fork, so do 3-4. I would guess that you have'nt got to 5th gear. There is most likley a problem with the shift fork or the gear synchronizer. You cant be sure till you open it up. The hardest part about working on transmissions is getting over the fear of working on transmissions. I have been fixing cars for about twelve year now and still get a kick out of good mechanics who are afraid of transmissions. If your a farly handy person, its not that hard to take the top off and look. Buy a shop manual and remove the shift lever and the cover under it. The shift forks will come out with the cover, and the rings that they attach to in the transmission are the synchronizer's. If you get that far you'll figure out whats wrong. Bad synchronizer's mean the tranny's coming out. Hope this helps.
