hello all. i have done a search on this topic but my situation seems to be a touch different. my 88 jeep wrangeler 6cyl 5speed is getting hard to put into gear.when its rolling its fine, its jus putting it in gear at a standstill. the first thing i did was check the master cyl res but its full. is there something i should be checking ? and am i correct in assuming i have the type of transmission that requires the bellhousing and transmission to be dropped to gain access to my slave cylinder?
all i can say is if thats the case u will be seeing this jeep for sale in the classifieds section very very soon...lol
im serious...i dont have the time or money to fix this if this is the case so if anyone in the ny fishkill area wants a cheap yj hit me up...
You may have the peugeot transmission in your jeep, I'm not positive of the years they used these. These are weak and known to fail, its probably not worth rebuilding. But I'm no expert, your fix could be something simple.
My 1990 YJ Larado package did the same thing. it would be fine shifting while rolling but if you try to stick it in first gear at a stop you'd need both hands to get it in there. Everyone I talked to about it said it is normal, it's just hard to get it in gear. My trick was to shift into neutral and let the clutch out hit the gas and then clutch in and it would pop right into gear. I guess the technical side of it is the syncronizers wouldn't mesh together and by 'double clutching' it would spin them enough to go together.
I would hate to think that you would get rid of it for that, hope this helps you.
yah, it does help me understand whats going on. but not so much on how to fix it. and whats this about a peugeot tranny? are there any specific years that used this tranny that i should be aware of if i decide to replace the tranny i should stay away from? and would replacing the clutch or slave cylinder help?
