97 Jeep wrangler 4 cylinder manual. When in neutral, between shifts, coasting or anytime there isn't a load on the drive train, even when parked some times will from time to time get a winning noise in or around the engine. It can stop as easily as it started on it's own. 115 thousand miles and clutch is original and shifts good. This wining noise is definitely in front of the clutch towards engine as opposed to behind. It stops and starts on it's own but has to have been running in gear for a few minutes minimum before this wine kicks in. Only happened for the first time yesterday. Never before.

i cant shift to neutral?
I cant shift to park.
I cant what? be clear. please
Without knowing more, I can't really pinpoint the cause. But I can suggest some solutions.
On my '91, the hubs have a manual lock. I'm assuming if it in four-low the hubs were locked. Shifting the transfer case and even unlocking the hubs can be problematic on pavement.
Here's why: With the hubs locked, the entire drive train is locked.
When you go in a straight line, no problem.
If you turn, the wheels on one side travel a different distance than those on the other side. But with the drive train locked, all the wheels are trying to spin at the same rate.
No problem if you're off-road or on slippery pavement. The wheels can spin a bit.
If you're on dry pavement, there can be a problem. There is a lot of stress on the system, especially the steering knuckles, and U-Joints. You need to relieve this pressure.
Drive it to a place (the side of the road works) with sand or gravel, drive it in a straight line a few yards back and forth. Put it in neutral while you are still rolling and shift the transfer case. Then unlock the hubs.
I have a jeep wrangler and to have it towed you are suppose to put the transverecase in neutral after you first depress brake pedal put trans in neutral then start engine shift auto trans into drive release brake pedal make sure there is no movement, shut engine off with key left in acc position shift auto trans into park, disconnect neg battery cable (damage can result in trans if shifted into park while transvere case is in neutral with engine running) you should refere to your owners manuel
I love driving 4x4 jeeps, especially in 4-wheel drive. First, a list of when you should and should not use 4-wheel drive.
2x4 Hi is for normal driving in most weather and anytime you are driving over 50mph.
4x4 HI is for getting you unstuck from mud or snow and can be used up to 50mph but is not recommended for much faster. It is only designed to get you moving and unstuck, it will NOT make it any safer to drive faster on slick surfaces like rain, snow, or ice. Always drive slower on these kinds of surfaces.
4x4 lo (low) is for extreme 4x4 driving like trail riding and mud bogging to get over steep inclines and deep mud without burning up the clutch. 4x4 lo should never be used to drive faster than 25-35mph and should only be used in off road situations.
Neutral (on the 4x4 shifter) is mainly used if you are towing your jeep with any of the wheels on the ground. It completely disengages the transmission from the drive train so you can tow it without damaging the trans.
Now, to shift from one to another. My jeep may be different than yours and I haven't driven my jeep in a while (I had to sell it) but it should shift the same way.
First, make sure you are parked and the wheels are not moving. Put the main gear shift (5-speed) into Neutral, hold down the clutch and move the selector from 2x4 to 4x4 by first pulling the shifter to the side then moving it up or down. Some jeeps (especially older ones) may have a wheel lock on the outside of the wheel hub (AKA hub lock). This must be in the "LOCK" position for 4x4 and "UNLOCK" for normal 2x4 driving. Make sure it is fully engaged in the slot before shifting into 1st. Then you can drive normally, following the guidelines above.
The regular 5-speed transmission will shift just the same as before but you will notice that the jeep will drive much slower in 4x4 lo and it will have much more torque for those really sticky situations.
Good luck! Have fun! And if you do plan on doing some real 4x4'in or mud boggin' make sure you buy a winch for the front of your jeep or bring a friend who has a winch on their truck to get you unstuck from the worst of the worst! Don't forget to rate!
P.S. if you have problems with one or more 4x4 settings you can always shift back to 2x4. Make sure that if you are driving on the highway or in normal driving conditions, you are always in 2x4.
P.P.S. If you are near the Columbia, MO area send me a PM, I'd love to find some new friends to do some 4x4 driving with in the area so I can get back into the sport. I miss it.
get a 6 cylinder motor drop in this is best gas saver for most vehicles 4 cylinders dont have the ability to push all the weight of a vehicle but runs smoothly
6 cylinders are as i put in words are evenly balanced for everyday use and not gas guzzler either
