she wont shift

Hey all, 2002 sport with the 5speed. I was driving along all normal like, accelerating from a stoplight. I got to 2nd and went to throw her into 3rd.... and nothing. It will not go into any of the gears now and has been towed to my place. I can feel and hear the clutch engage and disengage when I press on the pedal, so I am now very confused. Needless to say Im at a loss here, and am looking for some advice.

can you force start it in say 2/3 rd gear and get it to go forward? How is the clutch fluid? Any burning smell?

Nope, no smell. And I wish I could get it in any gear. I tried both, moving and stationary, and running and not. When it stopped working there was also no strange noises out of the gearbox or anything, its like she just gave up the ghost.

Could it be the t-case? maybe it popped out of gear or busted a linkage and that's the problem? Other wise I think a shop is going to have to look at it..

Hey, thats the diagram I just found too. Good stuff. It looks like Ill just have to go in and see if anything is severely worn or out of place.

wohoooo!! 6 hours later I finally got the last skid plate bolt off. One came out the way it was supposed to, the other 5 took both drill and then finally some sawsall persuasion. I hope the rest isnt this much of a pain in the butt. Ill keep you all posted and add some pics tomorrow night.

be ready for the two reverse torx bolts at the top of your tranny. You may not have them but in my 97 (ax15 tranny) there was two of them at the top of the bellhousing.
Caught me by suprise.

Thanks, Ill be on the lookout for them. Did Jeep get some sort of freakin discount on Torx and Hex bolts, or did they just do it because they hate me?

WOW! I was ready for some torx, but not reverse torx. If I ever see a chrysler engineer, he better hope that I cant catch up! I finally got the trans out and on the table. I cracked her open and found.... nothing. No broken teeth, shavings, or chunks. I scratched my head for a little while and decided to see how it worked. After playing with the shifter socket, and loosing a ball and spring, I now know how a NV3550 functions. But get this... it now works fine. I think Im going to slap it in on monday or tuesday and see if it works. Weird stuff.
