I just bought a 93 Wrangler yesterday. Had it checked out by a professional mechanic before I bought it. Took it home and noticed the following issue:
When the 4wd shifter is in the 2wd position, the 4wd light remains lit on the dash. Furthermore, when excellerating from a stop in 1st gear, there is a "knocking" sound from the rear and near or complete stall. None of this happened on the test drive nor was noticed by the mechanic.
However, when the 4wd shifter is in the 4wd position, the jeep excellerates from a stop in 1st gear just fine with no abnormal noises.
This jeep has 77K orig miles verified, with a professionally done 4" lift.
Anyone know what might be going on here?
