My first post, so hopefully I don't screw this up. I just became a second time Wrangler owner and first TJ owner (95 Sahara formerly that was totaled the month I made the last payment).
New vehicle is a 2000 Sport (4.0) w/manual transmission, and has 95k miles. Car shifts great and the gears feel tight. There is a metal on metal sound (doesn't sound like grinding gears, but who knows) that occurs in Reverse, first, second, third, but not in fourth or fifth when moving. No sounds when it's not moving, but sound it if clutch is depressed in 1-3 while moving. Bearings, clutch, transmission, or other? Taking to a shop this week, but wanted to get thoughts before I took it in. Would be good with investigating and fixing myself if I had a better idea of what it could be and what I am up against. Symptoms don't make sense to me, but I'm sure it will to someone here.
